Best Kanye West Albumsanthonybecerra831
The Top Ten
This is Kanye's best album. And I furthermore I think it is the best hip hop album of all time. He goes so in depth on his life life struggles. So mush so that you feel like you are inside the mind of Kanye West in 2010. Also some of Kanye's best songs are on this album such as: Gorgeous, Power, All of the Lights, Monster, Devil in a new Dress, Runaway, Hell of a Life, Blame Game, Lost in the World.
Easily his second career defining album. Kanye isolated himself in a studio while writing this for three years, and it really shows how talented and skilled as a producer, singer, and songwriter he is. Sadly his albums have been on decline since, but it really is that good. Check it before hating on him, because I loathed him until I check it out recently.
Musical masterpiece, I don't think anyone will ever top this.
Not even a Rap/Hip-Hop fan but I have to say, This is one of the greatest pieces of art ever created. I see people calling this "one of the best rap albums" but that's almost an insult to how great this album really is, Its one of the greatest album of any genreV 15 Comments
His first project. I remember getting it back in 2004 back when I was like "dude, this guy is gonna blow up" and everyone was saying "who the hell is kanye west"
My top 5:
Through The Wire
Never Let Me Down
All Falls Down
Two Words - marmalade_skies
This is his fourth worst project, but it's an 8.6/10. That either shows how great Kanye is, or how bad The New Workout Plan is, because that song dragged down a perfect album to the above rating. - SwagFlicks

Classic album but Last Call is far too long - YoDa0815V 5 Comments
This is actually the first Kanye album I listened to and I immediately was hooked to it because of Kanye's use of samples and melodies. This is also my favorite album from him. - Mcgillacuddy
Best album in my book..
This album has his catchiest songs. I really liked Stronger though. 5/5 - AlphaQ

I grew up with Graduation, I loved it and it was my favorite album. Until I heard this one, and I fell in love with every single song. This is one of those albums that you can listen to all the way through without skipping any tracks. - TheParasiter
Has a lot of personal songs that you can always listen to when you're going through hard times
Refined production, his best work lyrically and overall a robust well rounded project.
My top 5:
Bring Me Down
Diamonds From Sierra Leone
Touch the Sky
Gold Digger - marmalade_skies
Easily his bestV 5 Comments
Completely underrated compared to all his other albums. Never gets the respect it deserves. There's a reason it was named by Rolling Stone as one of the most groundbreaking albums of all time.
808s is underrated. It's not the usual Kanye, but we have to respect the fact that this guy's mother died before this album was released, and Kanye was going through a lot. It made me respect his work more. - Mcgillacuddy
Perfection. Love every song on this album.
I love that 808 HeartHohoHeartsound that describes sadness so goodV 5 Comments
The first half of this album is ground-breaking genius. It falls off in the second half but Yeezus stays his boldest and most experimental work, bringing in industrial hip hop influences (he probably listened to Death Grips at the time). MBDTF may be his best work, but this one is second to me.
Didn't like it at first but it grew on me a lot. I love how this album is brash, experimental and masterfully produced.
My Top 5:
Hold My Liquor
Blood on the Leaves
New Slaves - marmalade_skies
Will ultimately be underrated by Kanye's standards, but it is an easy top-3 pick for him now.
1. Blood on the Leaves
2. Guilt Trip
3. Black Skinhead
4. New Slaves
5. I'm In It
6. I Am A God
7. Hold My Liquor
8. Send It Up
9. On Sight
Don't even bother listening to Bound 2. Other than that, brilliant album, tight call between all the tracks. Amazing experimental vibe, superb production value, memorable lyrics.
Messy, but every song on the life of Pablo is great some of my favorite Kanye songs on here
This album is very underrated in my opinion. It was actually a pretty good album. It does have its flaws but there are good things about it too. I think it's a 7/10. My favourite tracks are Ultralight Beam, Wolves, Real Friends, FML, and No More Parties In LA - somerandomkid
Great album. My favorite song on this album is definitely "Real Friends"
Very underrated but in my opinion not his best album - YoDa0815V 11 Comments
Agreed! Definitely underrated, Jay-Z and Kanye made one of the best rap duo albums off all time! - aleksanderalvr
I honestly thought this is where Kanye went downhill. - AlphaQ
The song about the people in Paris is the best rap song of all time
No chirch in the wild. enough saidV 2 Comments
This album is too real for most people but it is a very beautiful and bold statement in the form of an artistic musical arrangement
Interesting and different
Could definitely do better if it weren't for "Wouldn't leave" - YoDa0815
When it comes to the best Kanye album, even though this is a collab with Cudi, it comes down to this and MBDTF. Both are great, and they're tied in my opinion. But this one is just too underrated, with it's psychedelic bliss and themes of not just overcoming one's inner demons, but, especially in Kanye's part, embracing them as part of who you are.

It actually is a decent album. I had to listen to it a second time to appreciate it. Only two tracks that I can never get used to are Don't Like and To the World. - Mcgillacuddy
I don't really think of this a Kanye album more like various artists
It still have some good songs but I admit it was the worst Kanye West album
Good album, surely not bad, but just not up there with the others.
Maybe it doesn't exist yet but it will obviously be the best album of all time
It is named waves now
It's renamed T.L.O.P. now - riceboydm
