    Companion Thread: Big Country Reviews Eminem Discography

    Yes, Believe it or not but the time is here. I’m about to review Kanyes discography. I’m well known for not liking Yes music, but if I like something, I will say it.

    These are his solostuff and it’s enough. Collabprojects, we’ll see what I feel like when I’m done with his solostuff. I’ll do one album at a time when i have the time. Stay tuned

    You want me to do Em or another artist? (I think I'm more familiar with Em than you are with kanye cuz I've been a stan of both artists in my life, so I could do an artist I'm less familiar with if you want)

    They both have 10 "studio albums" discounting mxitapes, collabs, etc etc. so it works out nicely if I do Em:
    SSLP
    MMLP
    TES
    Encore
    Relapse
    Recovery
    MMLP2
    Revival
    Kamikaze
    MTBMB

    Will do. And I will post the review of College Dropout tomorrow (right now it’s about 9:30 in the evening). Tomorrow I’ll finish it and post it.
    and yea, I’d like you to do eminems album. And u are right, i have always been a huge fan of Em, but not Ye. But I still think it would be cool if u review Eminem.

    Z Gangsta reviews The Colloge Dropout
    @Donkey Kong Country I have heard all of Kanyes album but most of them have been around the time they were released with a few exceptions on certain songs. So it's been a long time for most of them so it'll be interesting. I dont think I can make a fair ranking at this point so we'll see how it turns out. But one thing I do remember is that The College Dropout is easily his best album imo. This is a true hiphop classic! Believe it or not, but I love this album, it's nearly perfect.
    It is so close to perfect I give it a 10 out of 10. It'll be interesting to see if I have changed my mind drastically when I get to his next albums.
    But as some of you know, I prefere hiphop albums that are or sound, more like classic hiphop from the 90's. Thats the music I grew up on. And my opinion is that this album has that classic hiphopsound to it, some really good beats. Kanyes top 3 songs are on this album. At least.

    1. We Don't Care
    Perfect opening track. Nice chorus, verses, it's catchy. Love it.
    2. All Falls Down
    Classic track. Love the singing on the chorus and the background. Kanye has nice flow.
    3. Spaceship
    What can I say? Like most of the album, production, feats, samples, verses are all top notch. No exception here.
    4. Jesus Walks
    Top 3 Kanye song, possibly his best song, beat and sample is giving me an erection. He started off his career with Jesus and looks like he is ending it with Jesus as well. "If I talk about God my records wont get played". This is somewhat an integrity that he left soon after when he sold his soul to the devil.
    5. Never Let Me Down
    This is another Top 3 that is a contender for his best song. Classic hiphop track and Jay is killing this s---.
    6. Get Em High
    One of my personal favourites. Really my type of beat. I love simple, repetitive beats like this one, and when the last verse or hook is over the beat keeps going for a while is the s---. Not the case here but just wanted to say it.
    7. The New Workout Plan
    Only track on the album that I really dislike. I mean, what the f--- is this s---? What a joke. Extremely fast beat and they are all over the place with this s---. Just waiting for a heartattack listening to this. However, since every other track on this album is great, this doesnt put down the album as a whole.
    8. Slow Jamz
    One thing on this album I dont like, is that I feel like the high pitched samples are used too much. I like high pitched samples but theres too much of it on this album. Love the singing on the hook. Nice noddable beat.
    9. Breath In Breath Out
    Objectively nothing too special, but personally, this is my type of track, slow, nice beat, with some dope rapping.
    10. School Spirit
    Solid track.
    11. Two Words
    Oh man are u kidding me? This is some good s---, probably 4th best track on the album. This is what i want to hear, not that f---ing Nintendomusic bs like Graduation or rusty chainsaws like Yeezus. Absolutely incredible track, cant stress it enough.
    12. Through The Wire
    Another top 3. Perfect track, one of the best samples ever used. Impossible not to nod your head to this one.
    13. Family Business
    Perfect place on the album for this song. I really like the piano and the story he is telling.
    14. Last Call
    Kinda cool way to end the album, talking about everything happened up to this point etc.

    Skits obviously not included.

    You share the exact same opinion as I do regarding Kanye… he only has one classic and that’s TCDO. Late Registration is okay too but after that whew t r a s h. Unpopular opinion I know.

    Imo, his best is MBDTF, that's one of my favorite albums of all time. Love it.

    He had a pretty good debut too, I just go back to MBDTF, Graduation, 808s and Yeezus way more.
