808s & Heartbreak Album Review

The most underrated Kanye project. Paranoid is easily a top 10 Kanye song. Overall this album is amazing and underappreciated.

Totally appropriate album for kids.

Common sense media have gave this album an 13+, even though they gave the sweary Graduation the same age range.

This album contains no swears, anything controversial or anything that would have a back message.

This is a perfect album for the Younglings.

I only listened to 3 songs. This is what I can tell you. Heartless: really good song. It does talk about heartbreak, but it’s clean and I feel it should be OK for all ages. Love Lockdown: another really good and clean song. There is one use of “God.” I’d say this song is OK for 8 and up. Paranoid: another really good and clean song. Mr. Hudson fits in nicely. There are actually some good electronic beats. I'd say this song is OK for all ages. Anyway, these are fun songs that I highly recommend for Kanye West fans.

Great...4 1/2 stars

This CD is awesome! I didn't like Kanye until he made this CD. It was then that I realized how catchy his music is. The reason I gave it 4 1/2 stars is because sometimes the music gets a little boring. Heartless, Amazing, and Love Lockdown are the best tracks on the album.

This is a great album. Kanye West pieces together poetic yet catchy lyrics with great electronic sounds. A must-have. Okay, sure he's not so good of a role model but atleast his music's good! No violence. There's one sexual reference (I can make you come...I can make you go) that will fly off the top of kid's heads. No language. No drug content.

Good...and Bad

Good CD, but unforunatly, Kanye isn't a good role model.

13 and up.

This album is really good. Its very clean, and doesn't have many things wrong with it at all. It soo much cleaner than Graduation, and some of his other albums.

An unusual still excellent release from a talented rapper

This release is less good than his other release, but still manages to be excellent. With quite simple lyrics and deep electronic music Kanye overall talks about being heartbroken. It's hard to choose which tracks are the best, since you'd switch from Robocop to Paranoid then Street Lights or Welcome to Heartbreak (with Kid Cudi). The message may be too deep for children under 12, but then there's no problem, it's just a question of maturity. The only offensive word used is censored, so this album is melodically great for everybody, and lyrically better for teens and up. (for its theme)

I'm Sorry...

I just really thougth that this album was a dissapointment. Tracks like 'Say You Will' is tedious and boring. I bought this album thinking I was in for a treat. Nope. The few songs there are on this album gice it something to fall back on, like 'Welcome to Heartbreak,' 'RoboCop,' and 'Paraniod.' Otherwise, it's like bread without yeast.

This truly is an excellent album.

Kanye West's use of the autotune is perfectly placed. The lyrics are about loneliness and loss. I recommend the tracks, robocop, heartless, amazing ,street lights and most of all, see you in my nightmares. This album shows the maturity of Kanye without being tedious or boring.
