808s and Heartbreak

I usually dont listen to complete  albums by single artists. They tend to bore me so I keep myself limited to a few of their popular tracks. 

I am also a faithful hip hop/r&b/rap fan. Though pop, rock, jazz interest me, but hip hop is something i keep coming back to.  I stumbled upon Kanye West's latest album 808s and Heartbreak via Grey's Anatomy. One of the latest episodes had Streetlights playing and as is my habit, I went on to investigate kw1 the song.

Kanye;s 808s and Heartbreak is experimental album. He has explored new sounds,  beats and lyrics and is definetly unlike his other albums.

Another brilliant track from the album is Tell Everybdy That You KNow which features Lil Wayne. After the much successful (& grammy winner) Tha Carter III, Lil Wayne has certainly come a long way. This track has the two artists experimenting with never heard before voice effects and rapping. totally love the number and cannot help listening to it over  and over again.

All in all, a supremely interesting album and definetly recommended to all those who are bored of the boring cliched gangsta rap/hip hop. This one's a refreshing change.
