    I've been thinking about listening to Kanye West lately. I never had a problem towards him or anything, and I actually enjoyed Flashing Lights, and since Eminem hasn't been doing anything recently I've decided I'll give some attention to other artists, while still enjoying Eminem and his music. I've already been doing this, as I've listened to a few non Eminem albums this year already, so I'm going to continue this with Kanye West. What album do you all feel would be the best to listen to from him? I'm guessing I should just start off with his debut album, The College Dropout, and then just go on from there, and I might do that, but I want to hear from you guys on what is the best Kanye album to listen to. I'll even add a poll so you guys can vote, and the poll will run until tomorrow. After that, I'll try to find the album and listen to it on the weekend.

    I did say I would still listen to Eminem along with other artists, which I am starting to do now already.

    Not even Graduation? I was assuming Graduation would be his best album, considering it had Flashing Lights and how successful and fun that song is.

    I'm assuming that would be the best thing for me to do, and it seems everyone does want me to do it.
