The Definitive Ranking of All Kanye West Albums

5. Graduation


Kanye West is known for his use of samples in his production. His beats have a very distinct sound in that regard. 2007’s Graduation is the peak of this as Kanye was able to clear major samples from Elton John to Steeley Dan to Michael Jackson.

Graduation’s sound was inspired after touring with U2. Kanye wanted to create a more ‘stadium’ sound that will perform better for larger crowds so he slowed the tempo a bit and used different¬†synth sounds.

Best Songs: Homecoming, Flashing Lights

Worst Song: Drunk and Hot Girls

Created Deadseriousness after being fired from every job I've ever had. One faithful night I drew the conclusion that if I was going to be unemployed, I might as well write articles that will guarantee I am un-hireable going forward. This website is the equivalent to a face tattoo.

E-mail to talk directly about all Deadseriousness related stuff or if you just want to talk about like, the Yankees or Marvel comics or whatever.
