Product Description

Product Description

Late Registration is the follow up to Kanye's smash debut The College Dropout. The first single 'Diamonds From Sierra Leone' samples vocals of the legendary Shirley Bassey. Highlights include 'Gold Digger' featuring Jaime Foxx and 'Hear Em Say' featuring Adam Levine of Maroon 5. John Mayer also makes a guest appearance on what is sure to the album of the year. Def Jam. 2005.

For haters eager to see Kanye hit a sophomore slump--no such luck. Late Registration can't replicate the novelty of last year's College Dropout, but otherwise, this is an impressively more mature and labored-over album. Lyrically, Kanye's only improved a notch but musically, the album sounds incredible, especially with co-producer Jon Brion helping polish the songs to perfection. Tracks like "Heard 'Em Say" (featuring Maroon 5's Adam Levine) and "Hey Mama," are richly textured in their soulfulness while the flint-edge of "Crack Music" and "Gone" (feat. Cam'ron) will appeal to the street-oriented. There's a few duds on here--the sickly-sweet, syrupy "Bring Me Down" (feat. Brandy) being one of the worst offenders--but when the album's good, it's very, very good. In short, Kanye's detractors may not be swayed in their resistance to his charms but not only will his past supporters be rewarded but Late Registration has enough appeal to earn new crowds of fans. --Oliver Wang

Kanye is a Genius... This CD is amazing; no doubt one of the best, if not the best album of the year. Kanye managed to completely dodge the sophomore jinx and release an amazing album.
The CD starts off with a continuing theme from College Dropout and goes into "Heard `Em Say" with vocals by lead singer of Maroon 5, Adam Levine. Levine brings a whole new dimension to the song and shows Kanye`s diversity. He gives advice to all to live life to the fullest because the next day may never come, and the future is not promised.

Most of the songs are up beat and meaningful and Kanye`s beats create a soulful feeling. It seems like all the hooks have a deeper meaning and Kanye has definitely stepped up his rap game from that of College Dropout. It is hard to top a classic, and he may have done it with this one.
After the collaboration with Levine, Kanye does a collaboration with an artist by the name of Lupe Fiasco on "Touch the Sky". Lupe adds a surprisingly solid verse along side the improved Kanye and together they get people moving. Kanye talks a little about his rags to riches story and in the chorus Kanye devotes himself to being positive ("til the day I die, I'm gone touch the sky") and announces that he is on top of the world.
Kanye teams up with Jamie Foxx yet again on "Gold Digger". On "Gold Digger" Kanye uses a Ray Charles inspired sample from the motion picture "Ray" sang by Foxx. Kanye talks about the girls that come along with the business who hook up with superstars to soak up the fame and wealth. Girls who you can't help but spoil and tells the story of a guy who experiences paying child support for eighteen years, "...and on the eighteenth birthday, he found out it wasen't his...

Heard 'Em Say: 4/5 - great, bodering on brilliant song.
Touch The Sky: 4/5 - Not my favourite on the CD but a good song nonetheless.
Gold Digger: 4/5 - Tends to get annoying after a while
Drive Slow: 4.5/5 - Great song, great vocals.
My Way Home: 2.5/5 - Common isn't that great at all. He's overrated obviously. Not a good song lyrically or musically.
Crack Music: 3/5 - It's disappointing that Game is only on the chorus. Not a great song anyway.
Roses: 3.5/5 - Powerful song, but some of the rhymes are weak.
Bring Me Down: 4/5 - Kanye's verse is TIGHT! It loses points because of Brandy, and the fact that Kanye only has one verse. I don't think the music compliments Kanye's verse that well. But the lyrics in the verse are genius ("Your girl don't like me, how long has she been gay?").
Addiction: 3.5/5 - Decent song...
Diamonds From Sierra Leone (Remix): 4.5/5 - Don't get me wrong, I LOVE Jay-Z, but that verse didn't belong in that song. Jay-Z's verse was fantastic, but didn't belong in this song. Kanye's verse was good too.
We Major: 3/5 - Disappointing. As a big Nas fan, I expected more out of him. Definitely not Nas' best work, or even close to it.
Hey Mama: 4.5/5 - A touching song.
Celebration: 4/5 - Good song.. what can I say.
Gone: 4/5 - would be better without the guests. You can have more tracks by yourself, Kanye!
Diamonds From Sierra Leone: 5/5 - A genius song. It doesn't match the video at all, but by itself it's a great song.
Overall: I didn't like the CD at first, but I love it now. I do like College Dropout more, but this CD is still fantastic.

No doubt you will be cranking this album for weeks, the production, hooks, and to some degree the lyrics are addictive. There is a track with's crazy...I have listened to it atleast 50 times. Also the track with Paul Wall is surprisingly good considering I at not into this new "shiny rims" movement.
I was disapointed in the track with the Game, as he only sings the hook. All said and done, I was not looking forward to the album as I have lost interest in what Kanye has to say, as he is very one dimensional with his lyrics, thank god he is still an amazing producer. Once I got past hating him because of his real life annoying and "cry baby" like personality, this album does earn itself the 2nd best album of the to the Game's "The Documentary".
