Nov 22, 2010This has the perfect critic rating , still some people here find a way to give it a 0 ! Try and be a smart hater next time !
I guess the best way to review this album is by telling you the only way you gonna understand its greatness is by listenning to it no matter what type of music youre accustomed to.It goes beyond any genre or stereotype.Its pure artistry.
This album is a perfect combination of his 4 previous LPs :
-Soul of College dropout
-Hip-hop and Instrumentalism of Late Registration
-Futurism of Graduation
-Melodies of 808's
Its not rewieable but i still give it a big 10 ! Thank you very much Mr West… Expand

This really is an artist who is willing to take risks and evolve. hate him or love him but lets be honest the man is a genius.… Expand
Jan 28, 2011It is simply appalling that this man continues to be so over credited for producing nothing but crap time and again. West must be the most over-rated "artist" the world has ever seen, thus his humongous ego being based on people who somehow find something good in one of the most talentless artists to ever record. "Fantasy," just like everything else he has recorded, sounds exactly the same as, well, everything else he has recorded, and it's just refried crap on digital. The man has made a career out of seemingly releasing the same terrible album over and over...and I wish someone would explain to me how this appeals to people...but then again, the country he is most popular in also kept "Macarena" at #1 for weeks. Kanye should be flipping burgers in new Mexico and should just never be seen or heard from again. This is THE most over-rated album of 2010. Oh look! Not one song of his on the radio...what a shock...… Expand
