808's and heartbreak collaboration review with @_dolzhen_
808’s & heartbreak by Kanye west is an mark/an turn in the history of
hip hop/pop sound but out of it influence and impact, let’s review the
album and not his legacy.
The album starts with the song « Say You Will » is a perfect track
tell us that the atmosphere of this album is going to be cold and sad.
With that beat composed with some hospital heart controller machine
and this autotune use by Kanye. The lyrics are pretty decent even if
they are a little bit obvious and something of corny. Then you’re
gonna find many amazing tracks such as « Welcome to heartbreak », «
Heartless », « Love lockdown » but some fillers. After the song «
Streets Lights » the disc, is for me falling a lot in terms of quality
only « Coldest Winter » is very good out of the last 4 tracks.
The problem with this album is that sometimes the melodies that Kanye
is trying to put out aren’t good, even if it feels like he just wanna
do it to express his pain, we can feel that he doesn’t know how to use
the autotune. Another problem is the features they are really useless
just like Jeezy one on « Amazing », Lil Wayne on « See You In My
Nightmares » even if Kid Cudi is delivered a great performance on «
Welcome To Heartbreak ». On the production side it’s pretty good with
some cloud and cold atmosphere beats sometimes but some misses like on
« Amazing ». We can hear the Phil Collins’s influence on the album
with the drums and those sky, cloud and cold feelings that were
created on « In The Air Tonight » by the English artist.
To conclude 808’s and heartbreak is a good album, but more impactful
and influential than good. It didn’t age very well, but some
incredible tracks are mixed with some acceptable songs.
Overall Rating : 6/10
