Auto-tuned Kanye on some of these songs plus electrical elements with a somber mood.

This is one of those instances where Kanye was ahead of his time. When this first album dropped I absolutely hated it. I just thought that there was too much autotune and not enough rapping. Knowing what I know now, I was wrong. This album is so beautiful. Here is a rapper putting his heart on his sleeve and getting out of his comfort zone to make a different type of music. Every track is so heartfelt and you can feel his pain. A lot of factors were in place when he made this album. His mom's death, a broken engagement, the Taylor Swift incident and other intrusions. You can just hear and feel his emotions on a lot of the tracks. The autotune and Kanye's bravado voice merges perfectly with the production. This album was specially tailored for him. A true classic in my eyes.

Different sound from Kanye. Made it after his mom died. His College Dropout series was better imo.

I really like HEARTLESS- AMAZING- and LOVE LOCKDOWN. It doesn't matter what people say about Kanye West he makes great music.

This is a legit album. I actually like half the songs on it which is more than I can say for the rest of the albums Kanye has made.

This album is a big deviation from Kanye's typical style. I couldn't get into it. After loving the first three albums, I couldn't get into a single song on this one.

Bout the baddest girl I ever seen
Straight up outta movie scene
Who knew she was a drama queen
That'll turn my life to Stephen King's
Up late night, like she on patrol
Checkin' everything like I'm on parole
I told her it's some things she don't need to know
She never let it go, oh
Okay, okay, okay okay, you will never stop it now
You never stop it now
Okay, okay, okay, you will never stop it now
We need to drop it now, drop it, drop it
Cause I don't want no robocop
You movin' like a robocop
When did you become a robocop
No, I don't need a robocop
