Explain why.... Any album, movie, TV show, has expectations attached to them because of the artist associated with it. You cannot deny the simple fact that a big name either draws critiscism or praise. It's not a cop out and it's not narrow minded. And I know exactly what I'm talking about when I state opinions that come from my own brain. I think this album is a steaming pile of trash with little to no redeeming qualities and i strongly believe in my statement that the only reason people love it is because it's Kanye and he's so committed to what he does and I give him credit for that. It still doesn't make it good to me. It's impossible because no one is not familiar with Kanye, but i'd love to hear a subjective opinion of this album.
Your argument could go both ways: Any other artist and more people love it since it doesn't have "Kanye West" on the cover.

Your argument, however, boils down to that people are lying to themselves when they say they like this album. Maybe in some cases you're right and an artist gets more of a pass because someone knows they like them or not already -- I'll spend more time with an album by a band I know I like than a new band -- it's just part of the process ... but, ultimately, does that matter? Does it make the opinion formed any less valid if it's backed up?

not even gonna try with you.

GOOOOOAAAALLLLLLLLLL! WINNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNERR!!!

In all seriousness though, I understand why you thought my post was ignorant because it is a blanket statement a lot of people use to go against the grain of something popular they don't like (just like the 'if you don't like it, you don't get it argument') but I honestly belive expectations can cloud the vision (or hearing) of a person and make something better or worse than it is. But as I said, you have to take that with a grain of salt because in this day of age and hype and information it's hard to be subjective on anything without living under a rock.

And I'm guilty, my dislike of Kanye and my differing opinion on his greatness to this point certainly influenced my opinion on this album. I'm not saying I don't like it because I don't want to like it, but I will say I didn't think I was going to like it. And if you were honest, you could make that exact same statement about why you love it.

Honestly I didn't read it, I just saw the site and know who's behind it or associated with it and figured I would chime in haha.

EDIT: Just read, yeah, I mean I'm all for voicing your opinions, but the dude's an uppity douche, comes across crystal clear reading that.

Go ahead and chastise me for this comment, but I think this album is a heaping pile of shit. 100% is the most ridiculous rating I have ever seen in my life and an insult to all the real artists out there. Fight me.

This wasn't at me but I do have to say I appreciate your review and how well written it was. And you're not the only one at the high end of spectrum. I often come in and trash on things that are popular in these parts (not an intentional troll I swear) but I should at least point out that I enjoy reading all the staffs comments and their reviews and the discussion that ensues. I just happen to disagree often.
