Like how he uses the 808 drum machine on the whole album.
Also its a shift in the songwriting considering it during the time when his mom passed away.
Most of the song has that dark sad loneliness feeling.
Also I find its more R&B driven with some hip-hop style.
For those who can’t stomach Kanye (IE his antics about award shows) you should give a try and listen to it.
Great Kanye is experimenting on his songwriting and music considering its really a personal album.
I love the album cover too, just noticed that the colors on the side are the tracklisting.
- Say You Will
- Love Lockdown
- Bad News
- Coldest Winter
