So we've basically heard the entire album. yea, yea i know, "No its not the final album!!! Kanye has made so many changes that we havent heard!!!!!!" ok. so we basically have a general feel/understand of what the album will sound like. My question is, am i the only one who was expecting better. Im not saying that these songs are bad because they're not. I love runaway, LITW, AOTL, power, etc., but after 2 years/getting 808s out of his system/taylor swift, i was expecting some PHENOMENAL shit that was gonna have me like OMFG!!!!!! Honestly, i cannot say that i have heard THAT track. DO NOT GET ME WRONG, i like these songs, but I honestly expected more from Ye.

See your point. The album has lost of a lot of it's "mystique". Which is completely understandable. For me, I'm still hyped for it. But I can see where you're coming from.

CTMN is overrated if you ask me, and IMO Diamonds >>> every other Kanye song, so i wouldn't expect that to happen.

I'd wait for the full album to judge it. It's going to create a whole different listening experience.

Totally agree, its just the wow factor feels like its missing IMO, its hard to explain, but i feel the album is missing something, its just a feeling i get while i listen to the leaks, but then again i haven't herd the actual album yet so i wont speak too confidently, but as of right now im not totally blown away, but i still love it.
i mean its yeezy right!

i disagree with the whole, "i havent heard the actual album in its entirety so i wont judge it." NOT! If you wouldve heard blueprint/black album/College dropout/LR/Grad/reasonable doubt/american gangster/C2/etc. you wouldve been like "Damn!!!!!!!". Good music (no pun intended) is good music. Good music stands on its own. You should not have to hear an album in sequence for a song to be good. Thats just an excuse that people are making.

If LITW dosen't make you feel like wow I dont know what will
This.

I guess this is just a matter of opinions, but I think this album will be on a whole different level than the past stuff.

I'm inclined to agree with you. We have basically heard the entire album at this point and although Ye has told us we haven't heard these songs yet I do doubt that there will be any thing significantly different about them once we hear the album. Part of the pleasure with any album is the element of surprise, not knowing or having little knowledge of what you're getting into. With MBDTF we have a pretty basic idea of what to expect at this point and it is a major let down for me but as Asian said getting the full album experience will be much different than leaks, snippets, and a GOOD friday release. In the very early beginnings I really thought Kanye was about to drop ILLmatic 2010 I honestly did. I mean you had Drake saying it was the best Hip Hop album in the last 10 years, EPMD calling it incredible and anyone who came into contact with this album seemed to reiterate the same. Rumors of Madlib, Pete Rock, The RZA, Premo, and Q-Tip began to spread. It was like a dream come true in the beginning. My excitement for this album at that point was too great but it was all for not. I am still excited to get this album and I have no doubt that it'll be good but I really think Kanye dropped the ball a bit here. I think we missed out on an album that could of been a lot more than just good. I just hope we haven't heard WTT already.
