Kanye West's short film Runaway features most of the music from his new album and is also awesome. Insane and awesome.[More:] Also, the album is pretty fucking great. Most of the folks who click this aren't going to watch the whole video, but I'm telling you, you are really going to like it if you do.
my fave song off that album is called 'Gorgeous' with Kid Cudi; I just found this link to stream it.

I view the universal acclaim it's getting with a bit of a skepticism because I honestly feel that his first two albums are substantially better than this one. But it's one of those things I think where they're judging the music from a general sense and I'm judging it from more of a hip hop viewpoint; from the latter the substance of his content has fallen off a cliff although he's regaining his lyrical prowess on this one. His production skills only increase every album though

Another great song off it is Devil in a new dress: youtube link.. the beat (not a Kanye beat) is hypnotic

mullac I put that pun on a Ye pic and have used it as a profile for a like a couple weeks now: image. That Dark Fantasy song it's from is awesome... "mercy mercy me, that murcielago.. me drown sorrow in that diablo"

While we're quoting I'll reiterate that the whole Gorgeous song is a quotable..
Is hip-hop just a euphemism for a new religion?
The soul music of the slaves that the youth is missin’
But this is more than just my road to redemption
Malcolm West had the whole nation standin’ at attention
As long as I’m in Polo, smilin’, they think they got me
But they’d try to crack me if they ever see a black me
I thought I chose a field where they couldn’t sack me
If a nigga ain’t shootin’ a jump, try runnin’ a track meet
But this pimp is at the top of Mount Olympus
Ready for the world’s games, this is my Olympics
We make ‘em say "ho!", ’cause the game so pimpish
Choke a South Park writer with a fish stick

I am watching this now, but I just want to say that I love the "Let's hear it for the assholes, let's hear it for the douchebags" song of his (can't remember the name of it).

Okay, I watched it and liked it. But I still like that one song the best.

I am surprised to say I like the whole damn overwrought thing.

The 10 or so minutes devoted to the ballerinas doing semi-modern interpretations of the music/sentiment . . .

Oh wow, that was stunning. Just amazingly fucking stunning and powerful in a way i can't quite get my mind around.
