Product Description

Amazon.ca

Kanye West's third in a whimsical trilogy of "scholarly" albums, Graduation wears its predecessors' badges of success on its sleeve. Matriculation has its rewards, apparently, and it's time to take stock. Lyrically, there's plenty of self-congratulation to attend to, but the real fun comes in the collabs, and West chooses co-conspirators like a kid in a candy store--John Legend ("Good Life"), Coldplay's Chris Martin ("Homecoming"), Mos Def and the Section Quartet (both adorable choices for the foreboding "Drunk and Hot Girls")--and plucks samples with A-list braggadocio: Elton John, Steely Dan, Daft Punk, Can, Michael Jackson, Public Enemy. Nothing here quite captures the superlative symbiosis of West's past best beats (think "Gold Digger"), but the central motif remains: No one ever accused Kanye West of being too cool for school, and Graduation still knows how to party. True, Kanye West will happily whine about the pitfalls at the top of the heap, clear his throat and try to rhyme it with Barry Bonds, or diss fish in a barrel all day, but that can't stop a shameless good time, and Graduation maintains an unshakeable knack for producing it. --Jason Kirk

Even if you're hopelessly alienated from American rap and hip-hop, Kanye West is extremely hard to resist if there is a musical bone in your body.
On this excellent record, he duets with Coldplay's Chris Martin on "Homecoming" and teams up with the young Grammy-winning blues guitarist John Mayer on "Bittersweet Poetry".
What makes these collaborations so good is that Kanye West is obviously not looking for crossover acceptance, rather he is demonstrating how he can excel in such distinguished company.
There's deft sampling of anyone who serves the cause, from Steely Dan and Elton John to reggae lion U-Roy and Daft Punk, and a new found maturity that ensures the swaggering but warm "Graduation": is that rarest of things: a keyboards-led hip hop album. It's tip top.
It's mature, adventurous, addictive.
With "Graduation", Kanye West proves once again that he is way ahead of the hip-hop pack.
Album's highlights: "Drunk and Hot Girls", "Can't Tell Me Nothing", "I Wonder" and "Stronger".
I'm loving it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Graduation is no match for Curtis from 50 Cent. Oct. 1 2007
By Vader
Format:Audio CD
Kanye West moved his album forward to cost 50 Cent his third #1 album on the Billboard 200 albums. Stronger may have topped the Billboard Hot 100 Singles chart- but it doesn't have the same appeal or charisma as Gold Digger from his previous album, Late Registration. Stronger samples a song from Daft Punk and the result is impressive. It's currently topping the Pop 100 in the U.S. Good Life, the second single is equally impressive. Graduation may have outsold Curtis, but that doesn't make the album better. No. Curtis may have been runner-up to Graduation- but it's still a better album. I can't help but wonder how impressive this album is considering that James Blunt's All the lost souls is #1 Canada and Reba Mcentire's Duets is #1 on the Billboard 200 Albums.

Graduation is still a great album- but the winner of the 50 Cent-Kanye West rivalry is 50 CENT.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better Than 50 June 27 2008
By Nick
Format:Audio CD
Kanye droped the bomb on this one. He used his terrific verbal skills to lay down fantastic lyrics and had some amazing beats. Some of the hard to pick favorites are "Flashing Lights", "I Wonder", "Good Life" & "Everything Iam" (Gotta love the premo turntable scratchings!). Overall this album is grand and was one of my favorite buys. Legendary album for sure. Everyone forgot all about 50, but who cares his time in the spotlot was long gone. Cop this album kids! You wont regret it and you will talk about "yo I have this legendary kanyeezy album, wanna pop it in" when your older. He's the new generation of hip-hop. Everyones gotta have this one!

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good cd Oct. 11 2007
By AB
Format:Audio CD
I must say that the "Graduation" album is alot better than the first two albums. You can listen to this album from start to finish, with the exception of 2 songs. My favorite tracks are "I wonder", and "Flashing Lights". The sample used for "I Wonder" really makes the song stand out.
I didn't purchase this CD because of the "contest" between Kanye and 50 cent, however I would not buy the album from 50 cent because I'm tired of his arrogance. I also got tired of hearing him rap about his bank account.
