Rank the Tracks: Kanye West's My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fant

Postby BleuPanda » Sat Sep 20, 2014 2:08 pm

The basic idea is to rank the tracks off the album each week to see how each track compares to each other. It's an excuse to go back to classic albums and a way to gauge the best and worst tracks of the most acclaimed albums. Simply rank all the tracks from your favorite to your least.

I plan to go in cycles of decades with the 1950s and 2010s once every other cycle. I will go with the top album of each respective decade, but I might skip questionable albums (I doubt anyone wants to rank the tracks of 69 Love Songs, no matter how great the album is). Next week will be Miles Davis' Kind of Blue.

Also, if you missed an album that you want to rank, you can do so in this thread. Please keep it to 1 old album per week. I will update the results. Please don't bump previous threads. I'd like to keep everything in the current topic and the result topic.

Monster is in my Top 50, this mostly because of Minaj and has little to do with Ye'. All of The Lights is a great song that could easily have been naff considering the amount of guests on it. Many of the other songs rely on being part of the whole album for me and I rarely listen to them on their own.

Runaway is in my top 50 of all time, while Power and Monster are in my top 100 of the decade this far. All of the Lights and Lost in the World made my top 50 of 2010, and the rest of the songs are really, really good. There's not a single dip in quality over the course of the album, and the two songs last on my list are only last because they happen to be interludes.

My #6 album of all time. I'm surprised at the lack of love for All of the Lights interlude. It's just so beautiful, and I don't use that word often.

5 to 8 is basically a tie...
Blame Game gets a hard rep for its Chris Rock skit that is only funny the first time around (but I really did find it funny the first time) but it's still a wonderful use of an Aphex Twin sample.
All of the Lights (interluse) is indeed quite lovely, but it's still mostly an intro.

Is this album a masterpiece? I’m not convinced, but it’s a flawed one if it is.

9. Runaway – A near-perfect blend of atmosphere, tension, mood and honesty. Kanye at his most raw and sincere. The emotional centerpiece of the album. If every song was this good, then the album would be as good as some people seem to think it is.
5. All of the Lights – This song has some real excitement to it with the music, Kanye’s rapping and the numerous guest voices all coming together well. It reminds me a little of Jay-Z’s “Empire State of Mind,” but not quite as good.
6. Monster – The beat bangs hard and the guest rappers all do a good job, with Nicki Minaj especially distinguishing herself.
3. Power – This one pops, with some bold production and some of Kanye’s more purposeful rapping. King Crimson has certainly never sounded better.
11. Blame Game – Kanye continues to address his breakup and broken heart. This song works well as the third and final song in a mini suite with “Runaway” and “Hell of a Life.” I don’t mind the Chris Rock interlude as much as some people, and find it funny, but agree that it’s not something I have to hear multiple times. Overall the song would be slightly better without it.
10. Hell of a Life – A good song to follow up “Runaway,” with its dark production and lyrics, Kanye’s just saying “fuck it” and moving on.
12. Lost in the World – A good song that’s sort of a summation of the album as a whole. Would have worked better as the closer than “Who Will Survive in America.”
1. Dark Fantasy – Starts out with the worst fake English accent ever (and if it’s not fake it should be), and has the sped up voice thing Kanye’s done better before and sounds like Alvin and the Chipmunks here. Rest of the song’s good not great.
2. Gorgeous – Decent song, but nothing spectacular. The production is kind of murky, but I’m guessing that’s on purpose.
8. Devil in a New Dress – Some funny lines, but otherwise I don’t get a whole lot out of this song.
7. So Appalled – It’s a decent song, but following “Monster” sounds kind of weak. You know what’s really “ridiculous” is the way that old dude pronounces it.
4. All of the Lights (Interlude) – It’s a good little segue into the actual song, but not more than that.
13. Who Will Survive in America – It feels just tacked on to “Lost in the World” and the album as a whole. Not really necessary.

Also, getting in late on Funeral
7. Wake Up
6. Crown of Love
4. Neighborhood #3 (Power Out)
1. Neighborhood #1 (Tunnels)
8. Haiti
9. Rebellion (Lies)
3. Une année sans lumière
10. In the Backseat
2. Neighborhood #2 (Laika)
5. Neighborhood #4 (7 Kettles)

The point is I don't want a bunch of topics being bumped and overtaking the board, and it's also a better way of making sure I see the additional votes when I add up the results in the most recent topic.

Kanye has two major problems: poor lyrics and overlong songs. He could be one of the all-time greats if he just tuned up his writing. Nonetheless, this album IS Kanye West and I love it.

EDIT: I read the policy regarding Old Albums. Only one per week, eh?

Fortunately, I just relistened to Revolver. The hard part was not listening to the tracks, it was that most blended together:

Tomorrow Never Knows
Eleanor Rigby
Doctor Robert
I want to Tell You
She Said She Said
Here, There, and Everywhere
Into My Life
Love you To
Yellow Submarine
For no One
And Your Bird can Sing
Taxman
I'm Only Sleeping
Good Day Sunshine

Strange personal story about “So Appalled”: I bought “MBDTF” because of the hype and because I’d always liked Kanye. I thought it was good after a couple of listens, but nothing besides the singles (“Runaway,” “Power,” “Monster”) really jumped out at me, so I forgot about it. Then, one night, I had a really bad dream, and all I could remember when I woke up was this menacing music that had been playing in the background. It haunted me for a while, and I couldn’t place where I’d heard it. Over time, I almost believed that my subconscious had made it up (though I knew I wasn’t that creative).
Months later, I had my I-Pod on shuffle and “So Appalled” began to play. This time, it caught my attention. The beginning seemed so compressed—like it was trying to suppress something underneath. Then, that music from my nightmare erupted. I don’t know why a few notes that sound like some distorted, underwater organ left me with such a feeling of unease, but they apparently did to the point that my mind packed them away as mood music for an especially bad nightmare. Now, it’s easily my favorite song by Kanye. (Although, seeing how it’s near the bottom of most lists, if it’s given anyone else nightmares, it’s been in a far different context...)

I will come back when I have Revolver, What's Going on, and Nation of Millions cataloged.

I agree with you somewhat with it being a tad overrated(and I hate using the word and the word in general) but I only say that because a lot of people say this is Kanye's best album when I think Late Registration is. This is still a great album and maybe the best of this decade but it's not his best overall.

I really try again and again to listen to this music, I wanted to rank, maybe niot all the songs, but at least the best one... but I really can not. I'm unable to find the best when I can not find the good.
Sorry. I will pass.

I kinda hate you guys about "Devil in a New Dress". I guess the song only affects me. True, it might be 50% the sample, but damn it seems like a really grandiose statement, and it blows me away every time.

Why even comment on this. If you don't like the music just don't comment and leave it alone. Let the people who do like this music that you call it vote and comment. I just find your post kind of unnecessary.

This was already one of my favorite albums, but when I went to rank the tracks and saw everyone listing 13 tracks, I noticed that I was missing the All of the Lights interlude, and I had Who Will Survive in America included on the same track as Lost in the World. Also, every track's tempo was sped up about 6%. I don't know how that happened. Just listened to the album in its proper format and obviously it's even better now. Tough to rank these tracks because it's such a consistent album from top to bottom, but I'll give it a try.

1 | Runaway (featuring Pusha T)
2 | Power
3 | Monster (featuring Jay-Z, Rick Ross, Nicki Minaj, and Bon Iver)
4 | Devil in a New Dress (featuring Rick Ross)
5 | All of the Lights (featuring Rihanna)
6 | Gorgeous (featuring Kid Cudi & Raekwon)
7 | Lost in the World (featuring Bon Iver)
8 | So Appalled (featuring Swizz Beatz, Jay-Z, Pusha T, Cyhi the Prynce and RZA)
9 | Blame Game (featuring John Legend)
10 | Dark Fantasy
11 | Hell of a Life
12 | All of the Lights (Interlude)
13 | Who Will Survive in America
