Is MBDTF Kanye's best album debate.
Like my comment for who debated better.
Yes it is (@47thagoat): Kanye West has a discography filled with classics, that is clear. However, there is one that stands out above the rest. That album is My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. All elements that he had previously executed well on the likings of The College Dropout, Late Registration, Graduation, and 808s & Heartbreak, are executed even stronger on here. He combines all aesthetics of his previous projects and forms an incredible blend that is near perfect. Kanye West also reflects on his experiences as a famous music artist, bringing his deepest story telling side and the best lyrics of his. Not only does this album place on top of Kanye's discography, it is recognized as one of the greatest hip hop albums of all time. From a pure artistry standpoint, this is on top as the greatest musical effort that we have seen from any hip hop record. Not to mention that this album is also the best of the 2010s. If you want pure hip hop art, MBDTF is your ticket.
No its not (@hiphoprodeo): Late Registration, College Dropout and MBDTF are all Ye's best albums, but LR is the best of the 3. The production on LR is varied on many tracks, like Heard 'Em Say with the keys, to We Major, with the jazz and drums. Kanye still uses the trademark soulful vocal samples that made the beats on CD so good. The production in MBDTF isn't as varied as LR is. Songs like Hell of a Life is one of Kanye's weakest tracks out of his first 5 albums. The subject matter in LR is also better. Kanye can come off as narcissistic and egotistical in a lot of tracks on MBDTF like on Hell of a Life and Runaway(Still a great track tho). On LR, songs like Heard 'Em Say and Touch of Sky are about him proving people wrong, Roses and Hey Mama go into him as a person without him being coming off as self absorbed. Crack Music compares making music to selling crack, which is more creative then every track on MBDTF. In conclusion, the things that made his earlier music great, his humble and relatable attitude, varied and strong production, and different lyrical themes makes LR better then MBDTF.
