    This is pretty how I'm expecting to feel about it.

    I think it's fine the way it is, length wise, but a few songs need to be replaced by the ones on the deluxe edition. I get why they exist and why it's on the deluxe verison, but, fuck. People should hear "Why I Love You", I think. That shit is dope as FUCK. Alternatively, people don't need to hear "Lift Off". At all. Ever.

    I didn't have any expectations for this, but the album rules. Niggas In Paris is fun as fuck.

    I agree with Casey, Swizzy needs to drop of from the scene. He has 9 bad beats for every good one.

    Best songs:

    Why I Love You: Mr H kills the chorus
    The Joy : sample is tooo good
    Who Gon Stop me: dubsteppiness
    Otis: Grew on me, the sample goes hard
    Ninjas in Paris: beat bangs
    Lift Off: just a good song
    No Church in the Wild : same
    Gotta Have It: again with the good sample
    Illest Muf(*#) Alive: swag

    Other songs are kinda meh

    Definitely disappointing. I got pretty much what I was expecting: a lot of self-celebratory lyrics and (sub par) braggadocio rap. It doesn't cut it for me. Most of the beats are pretty horrible too. But I liked these tracks:

    Murder to Excellence
    Made In America
    Why I Love You
    No Church In The Wild
    New Day

    I'm listening to a chopped and screwed version of the album. It's fucking awesome. It's on DatPiff, if anyone wants to search for it. Not gonna link, just in case.

    I don't know specific points, but he's only in it twice. He's the guy in the suit. He's clearly visible at one time, standing next to (I think) Kanye when he's standing in the doorframe of that car, doing maybe his first verse.

    OTIS and No Church in the Wild are good. But overall, it's not even as good as Kanye's last album.

    As hit or miss as it is, ultimately I like this album a lot more than I thought I would.

    It's a fun album for the most part. And Murder To Excellence is a reeeally good song imo.
