    Jay-Z should not rap in any of the songs

    Whenever Jay-Z raps any portion in Kanye's song, it ruins the song. Diamonds from Sierra Leone remix was messed up by Jay-z's useless addition--does he ever say anything in any song besides useless ego drippin bull? It's the same thing in college dropout, wherever Jay-z adds his portion,people have to bare through what would've been a good song. Kanye good on race not on women--how do you sing about how great your mom is and then label a bunch of women as gold diggers in one album? He needs to work on his patriarchy/male chauvinist issues.

    Kanye's One To Watch

    I didn't buy "College Dropout" when it came out, but I wish I had, so that I could compare the material on that CD to this one. Anyway, I rarely buy rap albums--I'm an R&B junkie--but when I do, it's because the CD is really good. This was the case with Kanye's latest. I thoroughly enjoy listening to Kanye be arrogant, insightful, emotional, funny, and overall creative thouroughout the CD. My favorite song is "Crack Music", where he compares packaging music and CDs to making and selling crack. The beat and chorus are beast--I love the "la-la-la-la-la-la" part. Overall, I recommend it.

    Sophomore Stud

    West was sort of in the same boat as 50 Cent was, tryin' to follow up one of the greatest recent hip-hop albums with an even better second one. And while those expectatations are pretty unrealistic, "Late Registration" isn't exactly chopped liver either. The best part about the CD: the singles released aren't the album's best songs. Tracks like "Roses", "Bring Me Down" ft. Brandy, "Drive Slow" ft. Paul Wall and GLC, and (particularly) "Gone" ft. Cam'ron and Consequence are better than anything else out there in hip-hop. While the freshman feel and honeymoon period is over for the "... Dropout" and it lacks some of the sentimentality from his first CD, "Late Registration" was worth the wait and has again raised the bar in hip-hop.

    Hip-Hop at its most polished

    This is a very well done album. The samples are very clear and melodic, and the beats are maybe not dance worthy but still move. However, this album for me is not classic status for it doesn't push any new bounderies in hip-hop. Kanye has taken hip-hop and made it sound "better."

    Very well established

    I really enjoyed this album. If you liked Kayne's first album The College Dropout, you will enjoy this album even more! Different artists feature in here as well. Artists such as Maroon 5's lead singer Adam Levine, Jamie Fox, Jay-Z, Common, Nas and Brandy
