    The rawness of Kanye West’s current existence manifests in music that actually means something, which is the first time we’ve been able to say that about a Kanye album in some time.

    The current release of the album otherwise known as Donda 2 — is a noticeably unfinished album. ... Not that the album is unfinished to the point it's entirely unsatisfying; there are clear winners here.

    Every now and then, he can still crank out his signature sweeping production or drop a line that stops you in your tracks. But no minor edit or revamped version of Donda 2 can conceal the album’s inherent flaw: It is presented as a revolutionary work but it is decidedly a non-event.

    It occasionally feels demo-like, half-finished: the corroded electronics on Louie Bags are intriguing, but the song features what sounds like a placeholder vocal. Great lines are few and far between.

    The most disappointing thing is how thin much of Donda 2 sounds, how messy and badly structured the songs are, how few pop hooks or memorable melodies it conjures, and how weak and repetitive West’s rhymes often are.

    Donda 2 is a complex of lacklustre ambling beats twinned with sluggish energy, only occasionally piquing (“We Did It”, “Too Easy”, "Pablo"). In fact, rarely does Ye find any stride. [review is for V2.22.22 Miami version]

    Donda 2>>>>Donda 1. The only way Donda 2 will improve is if they put the goat Marshall mathers aka eminem on it

    It's Bad, and I mean really Bad.
    This Album got terrible Mixing, Lazy Sampling and the Loops aren't looping great,
    i it basically a draft

    I can't get People saying "ooh it got potential" even though if he would fix the mixing, sampling, etc the album will still be boring because all the tracks on this Album are just "oooh divorce" or "oooh I hate Pete Davidson". I know Ye is a talented guy and he deserves better, but just don't bring it out in such an unfinished state.

    I have no idea if I actually interpreted the obvious flaws because I am not a professional Music Reviewer and English isn't my first language but
    TD;LR; This was in an unfinished Album and I didn't enjoy it

    The album is such a dissappointment
    Definitely not worth even checking out.
    There is no talent left.
