    Save for the annoying ass auto-tuned vocals, this is really fucking good. I'm assuming that Paul did a lot of the writing here, seeing as how he doesn't perform any guest vocals.

    I love the simplicity of it.

    I really like it. It gives me Late Registration vibes.

    For me, it isn't really anything to write home about but I won't be disappointed if it's on the next album. It's a nice song. :)

    Beautiful melody but that autotune killed it. Still better than 99% of Yeezus.

    I actually prefer Yeezus over MY Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy :shrug:

    Only One sounds kind of promising. Simple but sweet track.

    Not sure what Kanye's doing, but it's interesting. For better or worse, I would like to hear this without autotune. Not a huge Kanye fan, but I don't mind this. It's simple, but thoughtful and sweet. Now I'm actually interested to hear what's coming next.

    Okay, really liking the vibe on this one, but it's far from what I wanted from Kanye. It's gonna take a while to process.

    Concept: excellent
    Lyrics: great
    Paul on keys: sublime
    Auto-tune: why Kanye, why?

    Really liking the song, very different from Yeezus. The lyrics are great as well. Have to agree with the majority here, though, the auto-tune kills it. I'm mostly okay with the way Kanye uses it, but it does kind of goes against the whole simplicity and sweetness of the song. But no matter: great song nonetheless. I hope he hasn't dropped the Yeezus sound completely, but wouldn't mind more of stuff like "Only One" either.

    What I'm really love about it is even with the auto-tuned vocals, the emotion and soul of the performance still shines through.

    Not with Kanye. I feel as if the auto-tune made it more heartfelt, if anything.

    But it works on this song in my opinion.
