Editorial Reviews

Late Registration is the second studio album by American hip hop artist Kanye West, released on August 30, 2005, by Roc-A-Fella Records. Recording sessions for the album took place over the course of a year at Record Plant Studios, Chalice Recording Studios, and Grandmaster Recording Studios in Hollywood, and at Sony Music Studios in New York City. West collaborated with American record producer and composer Jon Brion to produce Late Registration, and the album features guest contributions from artists such as Jay-Z, Common, Lupe Fiasco, Jamie Foxx, Nas, Brandy, and Adam Levine, among others. Upon its release, Late Registration received rave reviews from music critics and earned West several accolades, including a Grammy Award for Best Rap Album at the 2006 Grammy Awards and an Album of the Year nomination. It appeared at the top of several publications year-end lists of top albums. Rolling Stone named it the best album of 2005, and included it at number 118 on its list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time in 2012

Everybody knows by now that Kanye West's solo debut The College Dropout was 2004's most critically acclaimed mainstream album, which earned the rapper producer numerous award nominations, including 10 grammy nominations in which he ended up winning three, and now people are calling the album a hip hop classic-with good reason, cause it was a breathe of fresh air to hip hop in a time when hip hop was dominated by popish hits and useless southern hip hop club records. However, when everybody learned that Kanye was working on a second album which he called Late Registration, we all wondered if Kanye would be able to bring it on the second album, and boys and girls, all i need to say is hell yeah, he did. Not only is Kanye's new album the most original hip hop album in years, but it is so incredible that it could compete with Common's BE for the Rap Album of the Year which was expected. This album is so full of great music at a whole new level never seen in hip hop before, which indicates that Kanye West's Decison to work with Jon Brion on production was not a mistake at all. West tackles a lot of issues on this album like his addiciton to money, girls and weed on the unique "Addiction", Conflict diamonds on "Diamonds from sierra leone remix", his actions at last years American Music Awards in "Diamonds from sierra leone", Crack in black America in "Crack Music", the Death of this grandmother and the classic track "roses" and a tribute to his mother on "Hey Mama". The only cons on Late Registration is Kanye's ability as an mc-and this doesnt take away from the feel of the album as he is still an above average rapper compared to 90% of the laughable, non talented rappers now, but we should cut kanye some slack since he is constantly trying to improve his mc skills and it shows in his rhymes.Read more ›

GREAT GREAT GREAT... Man listen i aint goin to front to you like Im just a Kanye West fan. Personally, with the combination of his cocky attitude and flamboyant persona in conjunction with an "okay" debut album "College Drop Out," I found myself questioning what Kanye was really tryin to do... The first album to me jumped all aver the place and really didnt have a constant smooth direction.. I kinda felt like he was trying to get too many points of view across on the first album(almost like he wasnt expectin to make a second) TOO RUSHED!! Lyrically on the frist album I agreed with the reviews especialy dealing with his lyrics, although he talked about contreversial topics I kinda felt like lyrically he was lacking. But this cd I have to say he stepped his game up!

This album is head over heals above his debut album and also over alot of music that is out this year and over the past decade.. Instant Classic!!.. Man Im a hood dude and everything but Im soooooo tired of everybody being sooo gangsta and selling drugs like thas all we can do or thas all we can talk about as black people..

I believe Kanye West is the realest rapper out, real not necissarily meaning you gotta talk about being poor or robbin or killin or stealin or slangin.. Too me that struggle has become artifiacial, and commercial(who woulda ever thought killin and slangin would be commercial), but real on saying exactly what evrybody else really wanted to say, but couldn't say it, and not necissarily couldn't say it but even if given the oppurtunity wouldnt say it(perfect example was his comments on Katrina, he said what everybody else was dancin around sayin, but thas a completely different subject)..

After hearing excerpts from this album on NPR, I was itching to pick it up. Being a man of class, I opted for the clean version instead of the explicit version, but that's a whole other story entirely. Kanye West is no stranger to music fans, or even current events buffs for that matter. He's wowed the music fans, and is scoffed by the current events buffs for his dubious political accusations and his annoying diva tantrums he's been employing since the success of his first album "The College Dropout". You're probably asking why I even picked up this album. Well, the answer is quite simple: as long as the music is great, that's all that matters.

I haven't heard "The College Dropout" in its entirety, but I have heard Kanye (or Ye as he's called) beats and production stylings for Alicia Keys, Common, and John Legend. AK's sophomore album is a winner, and from what I've heard of "Be" (Common's album) and "Get Lifted" (Legend's), they seem like winners, too. Well, for my first taste of Ye, I have to say that it's a keeper.

Kanye West is daring, for lack of a better word. His fashion (I gotta get Pastel when it's out), his wordplay, and his music may be mainstream rap's anti-bacterial soap for a disgusting cesspool of similarity. His sense of humor is charming and chuckle-worthy on the opening skit featuring Bernie Mac, "Wake Up Mr. West". That transitions intriguingly into the beautiful "Heard 'Em Say", featuring the fascinating Adam Levine of Pop-&-B band Maroon 5. Levine adds a welcoming diverse touch to West's music, his Stevie Wonder-ish vocals proving that some white people do have a lot of soul.
