Yeah, just to clear up any misconception, The College Dropout is a better album. I don't think it's better to the degree that some of you seem to think, but he had fire on TCD that he didn't come close to matching on Late Registration.
I am beginning to think I am the only person who thought this cd sucked hard. The only good song is the Diamonds remix with Jay Z. Apparently using a bunch of samples has gone from being looked down upon, to being viewed as "genius." And dont even lie and say any of you are happy when Gold Digger comes on the radio, after hearing it about a thousand times, I just want to put a gun to my head. The thing is, other songs he produces for other artists are usually all really good, but I really couldnt stand this album at all.
Not to mention, that personality wise he is a complete moron.
great review . . its spelled sophomore though. . . and i dont see how any other rap album comes close to it this year. i had to stop listenin to rap a few years back when every song started being about money, hoes, and escalades. if i buy a cd i dont wanna hear 12 songs about how you got 20 inch rims spinning on your escalade.
