4.0 out of 5 stars Not your mommy's Kanye, November 24, 2008
This review is from: 808s & Heartbreak (MP3 Music)
Kanye fans are in for a big surprise with this album. Most importantly you should know this is NOT a rap album. Kanye sings every song using heavy vocoding on his voice. Alot of the songs have heavy bass and a grinding aspect of them.

In a nutshell I'd say this album is a mix of Kanye beats /w a somewhat Neo like singing and even some old prince mixed in.

At first I didn't really get the album, but by my third listen the composition started to catch my attention. Despite, I expect a large part of his fan base not to be into this album, and if you're only a fan of Kanye as a rapper you might want to skip this album, but if you can get into more electronic compositions and some 80s spin, this album might be for you.
