Kanye West - 808s & Heartbreak - Review

I got this album last week after listening to a few tracks from it on the radio on my drive to work daily. 808s & Heartbreak was released in 2008 after the album "Graduation Day". Now I liked the songs in Graduation day coz they had a nice feel and infectious rythm to them. But this new album has got me stumped ! Most of the songs are about heartbreak and losing your love and to be honest downright fricking depressing.
**Warning** If you listen to this album while driving you might be tempted to drive off a cliff or drive head-on into a truck. Technically speaking, hes used a lot of Auto-tone in the vocals and they work to a certain extent. The mixing is excellent in many tracks and incorporate a lot of synth and electronica, but the Auto-tone tends to get on your nerves after a while. Theres a limit to how much voice modulation you can stand.

The tracks I liked the most were 'Love lockdown' and 'Welcome to heartbreak'.
