    @Sav Stanfield, I kept my word.

    Since I can't really edit the previous thread yet, I finally decided to reopen the thread fresh. Welcome to Rate This Album V4. Time to break the albums.

    PM me for nominations for an album for everyone to rate. Thanks!

    Obviously speaking, this is a classic Ye album, and is definitely his Magnum opus. I give this a 10/10. Couldn't really imagine the game without LR.

    nice new thread
    9.5/10
    undeniable classic and kanye's second best album
    i really love this album, imo kanye's best writing/rapping and producing in terms of his use of soul samples
    Favourite songs (currently): Gone, Drive Slow, Roses, Heard Em Say, Crack Music, Roses

    yes! @WheresTheMeat been waiting on this. can't think of a better poster to run this thread!

    As for LR, what more is there to say? So many memories. Its damn near flawless. I remember when it first came out I thought it was the greatest thing I'd ever heard (and that I needed to hear more of this Lupe Fiasco guy). Diamonds from Sierra Leone is still one of my favorite songs of all time, Jay's feature on the remix is so incredibly iconic. Gone is one of the greatest instrumentals (and Killa Cam features) of all time. Every feature is used to perfection. Even following College Dropout, it was so fresh and innovative and different compared to the zeitgeist of the time. Looking back now I think College Dropout is still the better album, but LR will always hold a special place. 9.5/10.

    Kanye's most epic album. Just slightly better than Dark Fantasy. Jon Brion and Warryn Campbell's work on LR will forever go down in history.

    The Boogeyman Is Coming

    May 23, 2019
    LR is top 3 Kanye for me.

    Gone is one of the best songs ever (especially the production) and Jigga absolutely kills Diamons remix. Hey Mama was beautiful, the grammy remix made me cry when I first heard it. Iconic songs like We Major, Bring Me Down (that verse ....) Heard Em Say (w maroon 5 was even gr8), Gold Digger, Drive Slow... classic. Crack Music is meh though.

    9/10

    Obviously a classic with some absolutely unfathomably good songs on it, but saying that this isn’t my favourite Kanye album. It runs a bit long and having Late as the closer instead of Gone is a decision that confuses me to this day. Still, Gone, Diamonds Remix, Bring Me Down, Roses, Addiction, Drive Slow, and really the vast majority of the songs are masterpieces and apart from Crack Music there’s no other track I’d cut.

    9.5/10

    I wouldn't say that this is terrible but it's definitely the worst of Tha Carter's. There are a couple of standouts like She Will, President Carter, that Interlude, How to Love, 6 Foot 7 Foot & that Outro (besides Shyne). The only problem is that most of the tracks have features on them, and most of them bypass Wayne. Don't tell me you're doing this French shit too. John is just a Five Below version of I'm Not A Star and a lot of the punchlines can hit levels of how did you come up with this shit, in a bad way. Despite this, most of the highs bypass the lows, so I'll give this a 7/10.
