<div class=“item”>Kanye West, 808’s and Heartbreak Album


I wouldn’t consider myself a big hip-hop fan. I do enjoy some forms of rap and I once owned the Miseducation of Lauren Hill album. This album is a huge glaring exception. I love this album. Kanye is real, emotional, and up front about the events in his life. It is an incredible follow-up to his Graduation album. In fact, I was actually fairly moved after a straight listen-through of the whole album.

The whole album features 80’s inspired synths, deep bass, and catchy vocal melodies. I love the stripped back simplicity of the songs&mdash;the instrumentation for each is typically very sparse. Kanye’s signature AutoTune is still prominent and though some would call it abuse, I love it.
