    Donda came and went for me. I listened to it a ton the first month it came out. But then barely, if ever at all, the past 12 months.

    The long length, bloat, skits, and bonus tracks mean that I'll listen to a few tracks here and there, but never cover-to-cover.

    The strong point of it is the features. The overall concept and positive/spiritual mood of the songs help too. The weak point is the production. The strong point of Kanye's albums have usually been the production. But this may arguably be his worst produced album.

    The melodies are basic and there are very few instruments. There's a lack of arrangement, so the beats don't really evolve. The same instrument packs and synths are repeated in most of the songs; while it's fine to have a base DNA for the album, this base is never really fleshed out and the songs sound samey.

    There's just a lack of innovation in the production in general. Previous albums had beats that were unconventional, years ahead of their time. Or they sampled obscure songs and introduced us to things we haven't heard before. Donda is just standard rap beats.

    A year ago, I think I rated this album a 7 out of 10. But revisiting it, it's more of a 6 to me.

    Donda had some grear tracks, then a bunch of mid, and some pt 2s of songs for some reason. Wish it had been 7-10 tracks.
