Kanye West's debut album is, in one word, refreshing. In a day and age where Nick Cannon and 50 Cent rule the radiowaves, Kanye West provides a smart, witty and touching album that enlightens the mind and soothes the soul.
Being a member of the Roc-a-fella camp, one would think that Kanye would be quick to jump aboard the bling band-wagon. While he devotes a song or two to his love of money, he also offers insight into other matters in his life (school, family, God, and his near-fatal car crash experience). On 'Last Call' (the album's twelve minute finale), Kanye talks to his audience, as opposed to MC'ing. Over a beautiful saxophone sample, Kanye describes his slow rise to fame, and the prices he paid to get there.
The album is intresting, with Kanye sampling Marvin Gaye, Aretha Franklin and Luther Vandross to name a few. His beats have an old-school feel to them, re-touched with a new school flavour. Kanye's MC'ing skills are not as dynamic as his production, but are strong nonetheless. His flow proves that he can ride a beat with words, and his lyrics show how introspective the man can be. On 'Jesus Walks', Kanye rhymes "I ain't here to argue about his facial features/or here to create atheists into believers/I'm just tryin' to say the way school needs teachers/the way Kathie-Lee needed Regis/that's the way I need Jesus".
Like all modern records, this album is not without a few flaws. There are an abundance of skits on the album, which leaves the listener craving for more Kanye. While they are thought-provoking and funny, they simply cannot compare to the quality of his music. The album starts out strong, but he stumbles on 'The New Workout Plan' and 'Breathe In, Breathe Out' featuring Ludacris. He recovers nicely.

So I was looking through the customer reviews to see what were the opinions of people who gave Kanye 1 star, and 99% of them are from "a music fan" from BKNY. On one of them, he even said, he was a white girl from the suburbs. If it wasn't for this guy posting a bunch of 1 star reviews, this album would be even closer to a 5 star average. Man, if you don't like an album, it's cool, but please get a life and stop hating. I'd like to get a diversity of opinion when I read these reviews, not 10 of the same person (can amazon do anything about this?).
Alright, now about the album. I'm a big underground hip-hop fan, I basically hate everyone who's on the radio, but I can dig Kanye. No, he's not the greatest lyricist, and his flow isn't the greatest, but that doesn't take away from the true strengths of this album. The production is always strong, with no real throwaway beats (I especially like "Through the wire", "Family Business", and "Spaceship"). And even if Kanye isn't the greatest emcee, he does have some songwriting skills, which is a breath of fresh air given that about 90% of hiphop songs have no point whatsoever. It's almost a good thing that he doesn't have much emcee skills, because he can't rely on freestyling and battle lyrics; instead he actually has to think about what he's gonna say. And he does a good job of having a wide variety of topics, which is also rare. Whether he's talking about his car accident ("Through the wire"), religion ("Jesus walks"), materialism ("All Falls Down"), family ("family business"), or Working menial jobs ("Spaceship", my personal favorite on the album)the songs are all strong and compelling.
This is not a classic, but it's definitely one of the better hip-hop albums of the year.

I only buy so many CDs a year. Mp3s combined with the fact
that CDs are so overpriced leads to this.
Anyway College Dropout is one of the rare albums that is
very well produced. For a Rap album this is the best one
I've bought in a long, long time.
The really annoying things are the skits but that happens
on a lot of albums in particular Rap ones.
The music is catchy, well produced and he has some
great beats working for him. He is at times funny,
sexy, poetic and semi-gangsta. He really knows his
stuff and his lyrics are a complex weave of his
music. Unlike P.diddy he not only can produce he
can also perform very well. Is it any doubt that
he is featured on so many songs this year?
Fav tracks:
7. Jesus Walks (An excellent song, that really hits hard)
10. Workout Plan (which is not only funny but also has
an awesome beat)
13. Breathe in Breathe Out Which my fiancé loves. Ludacris
doesn't sound like himself. He almost sounds like DMX on
this song!
4. All falls down. Nicely produced. A catchy beat that doesn't
get repetitive.
All in all an excellent album!

It's bad enough that we have artists like Lil Jon' (YEAH!) and 50 cent polluting our air waves with their superficial music.. music based on the concept of drugs, sex, money, and lots of cuss words (reasons why I don't listen to the radio).When I saw Kanye West's album, I thought, "Oh gee, another 'rap star' trying to make it big", but I was WRONG! When listening to this album, you can tell that Kanye has put a lot of effort and emotion into his songs. Cuss words aren't heard after every other word. There's a nice blend of old school and modern hip hop elements. His guest artists are great, i.e.: Mos Def, Talib Kweli, Jay-Z, etc. The beats will definitely hook and reel you in. The reason why I gave it 4.5 stars is because of the sketches. They're not terrible, but they're repetitive..I guess you can say..and the last "sketch" is incredibly long..I just don't really care for it. Other than that, I can gurantee that you'll be listening to this CD every other day.
Kanye has revived hip hop to the mainstream, and has given all those who enjoy good hip hop, good music, hope.
