Listen to the album like this at least once (Using OG versions of tracks is cool. Use soundcloud 30 Hours or cut out the bonus track outro.)

Your old self from January who was hyped as fuck off that legendary notepad would appreciate at least one listen to what was called "the album of the life" and "better than MBDTF".

What are your thoughts on WAVES?
How would you rate it 1-10?

Gonna just make a playlist and title in Waves with this tracklist

Reserved

Edit: Using OG Highlights and Wolves
forgot to mention it makes more sense to use the 30 hours on soundcloud. that was the album version before it became a bonus tracks.

we're not making tracklist changes though. we're discussing the WAVES album as it was on the notepad.

I like it but prefer the 11 track TLOP - thats the joy of the whole thing but yes Waves is good - the released TLOP is my least fave

If it was released like this, he might have made aoty no lie. TLOP is great but a few joints on it just make me feel like it could have been better off with a little less.

My tracklisting is similar but with a couple alterations:
1. ULB
2. Father Stretch My Hands (1&2)
3. Famous
4. Feedback
5. Highlights
6. 30 Hours
7. Waves
8. No More Parties in LA
9. FML
10. Real Friends
11. Wolves
12. Fade (works as sort of a "credits" track)

I found this to be the best arrangement for all the songs. Feels balanced and nothing feels too out of place.

I've been listening to this for the past few days so my thoughts:

- Famous sets a great tone for the album as the intro. Already a great track but having it as the intro makes me like it even more. This opener is flaaames.
- Father Stretch My Hands as one track makes the beat change more enjoyable for some reason...also appreciate not having to hit rewind twice to run the whole track back
- I see why Ye had Waves and Highlights back to back...two potential radio smashes. Waves is better placed on here imo.
- 30 Hours and NMPILA have some of my favorite bars on the entire album and mix the sound of the album up a little bit. 30 Hours is one of the chillest beats on a Ye album. NMPILA top 1 rap event of the year, deserved to be more than a bonus track.
- Fade (using OG) destroys my sub. Again mixing up the sound of the album with a house type vibe. Beat is hard as bricks
- FML -> Real Friends -> Wolves (OG) one of Ye's best 3 track runs of all time. Favorite stretch of the album
- ULB closes out the album on a feel good high note in the same way Last Call, Lost in the World and Bound 2 did. Enjoy it anywhere on the album but an especially good outro
- Album overall is well balanced with no filler

WAVES 9/10
