Couple interesting things to note here. In terms of the Cudi album, there are still a lot of unreleased tracks, which is good, since I haven’t been a fan of what he has released thus far. Aside from Erase Me, I haven’t really liked any of the other songs. Luckily there’s a lot more songs on the album which we haven’t heard so it still shows promise.
Now for Kanye, there’s good news and bad news. Eight of twelve songs have been released. Now good news is, out of those eight, seven of them I love. The only song I don’t like is Devil In A New Dress. I would have loved to see Kanye replace Devil In A New Dress with another GOOD Friday song, maybe Christian Dior Denim Flow. Either way, it’s good to see seven solid tracks on the album.
Now for the bad news, there’s only four unreleased songs, and with still a few more GOOD Fridays left before the album drops, is it possible Kanye would reveal the whole album before it even hits? Are people still going to pay for an album with only four new songs?
Now in all fairness, the versions of All of The Lights and Lost in The World were unfinished so I guess you could argue there are six unreleased tracks. Either way though, has Kanye revealed too much of the album?
Guess we’ll find out soon enough. Remember to pick up Cudi’s album when it hits on Nov. 9 and Kanye’s on Nov .22.
