Hi, kind of new here but...

If Otis is the standout track, I wouldnt be worried. Why? Because standout does not equal best. If I remember clearly, the people in the listening event had other favorite tracks, but none really picked Otis. (ie Lift Off, Who Gon Stop Me, No Church In A While). Why I wouldnt be worried if Otis is the standout track is because, well the track standouts in basically all of mainstream Hip Hop. It's Ye & Jay going back and forth on a sample alone, no drums, or piano rolls, etc. Its just something thats like, Wow. Obviously this album was very up tempo, and bangerish from what I read, so a track like this would standout. Its simple, yet creative and artistic. Like say Blame Game was really the standout on MBDTF, because it sounded different from the whole album, but that doesnt mean it was the best track. It just took a different direction.


/end rant.

You have a good point there. I wouldn't think much of other people's favorites though, since they usually are tracks that I think are shit like Power & AOTL for example. If Otis indeed stands out it means that it is significantly different from everything else. That might be a good thing... maybe.
