It appeared at the top of several publications year-end lists of top albums. Initially naming it the best album of 2005, Rolling Stone ranked the album number 40 on its list of the best albums of the 2000s decade.
Incredible, incredible album. I wouldn't put it over College Dropout, but musically and as far as polish, this album is ahead of CD. From the hilarious skits to the Jon Brion assisted production, Kanye did it again! If you've forgotten about this album, just throw on 'We Major' or 'Diamonds' and zone out ...
