Here's the studio version of the song from the VMAs: http://www.inflexwetrust.com/2010/09/13/kanye-west-runaway/

Not the strongest we've heard, but it's... uh... interesting.

This is obviously an unmastered version. Kanye's vocals in the verses sound like he was just reading them off of paper as a placeholder for when he records the real vocals. I bet he drops the mastered version this Friday.

Yeah, this is probably true. I like the live version a whole lot better, but his delivery of "picture of my dick" on the studio one we have now is hilarious.

I kinda like how that part sounds half arsed, it fits the sentiment.

Kanye is churning out the anthems. Must feel good being in form again.

I don't understand what you're referring to. I don't hear a similarity to any of the G.O.O.D. Friday songs, and in the first place the beat in the song you linked is an interpolation of the theme to Halloween.

Lord Lord Lord would probably be my second favorite song if Swizz didn't have a verse. I don't even mind him just generally mcing/yelling on a track as much as some people do, but he can't rap.

I wouldn't be surprised if this becomes one of the biggest selling albums of all time. He's really pulling out all the stops, multiple songs over 6 minutes, more guests than I've ever seen before, he's already released an albums worth of songs and these are just the teasers? It'll probably count as a double LP on the charts too so there's double the sales.

I guess there's also going to be a movie directed by Kanye:
"Itís the story of a phoenix fallen to Earth, and I make her my girlfriend, and people discriminate against her and eventually she has to burn herself alive and go back to her world. Iíve been feeling the idea of the phoenix. Itís been in my heart for a while. Itís maybe parallel to my career. "
Does this guy consider the period between Graduation and now to be a low point?

This is kind of a crazy statement to make at this point. I mean we've only heard a few (albiet unfinished) songs minus Power. I understand he's putting a crazy amount of work into this album, but you can't even begin to tell me how it sounds yet, how are you going to say it's going to be one of the biggest selling albums of all time? I mean christ, it doesn't even have a title yet.

I hope he releases the album, and then on Christmas releases a "G.O.O.D. Friday" mixtape of all the songs he did & some new ones. Two albums back to back? :swoon:

Yes! When he was on the MTV awards it was so horrible, he had nothing to add to the song at all. People need to stop adding their friends to tracks if they don't can't rap or sing.

The new (unmastered) song "Lost in the World" that samples Bon Iver's "Woods" leaked yesterday. It's pretty easy to find with a Google search, so I'm not going to post it here.

I'm a little conflicted with this one. I love both artists, but "Woods" has been an important song to me and always sounded pretty melancholy. It's odd hearing it in this form. I like how the song starts, I'm glad Kanye left it alone so you can get a feel for where the sample comes from before he drops the beat. The middle section is a big EH from me, I guess it needs to grow on me more. I love the Gil Scott-Heron ending. One of my favorite Kanye song endings at this point, right behind "Gone."

I guess the main thing this song has done for me is give me way more hope for this next album. My expectations are high now.

I genuinely think this is one of the best songs Kanye has ever created and I'm usually a CD/LR fanboy. It may not be a rap song or anything, but it is certainly a brilliant and theatrical production.

e: an interesting thing is that if you see it posted on a hip hop blog, the comment sections are all hating on it and saying it's "watered down for the masses". Apparently Bon Iver samples are mainstream as hell.

Lost In The World was leaked without his approval, I think, he was tweeting about how upset he is that somebody put it out. Also we're being punished by being deprived of a Good Friday track this week as a result.

Ponch it's hardly unique to Kanye, pretty much any high profile musician has said something like that more or less in regards to leaks.

You know if the whole album, fully mixed and done properly had leaked, I'd bet he'd be less pissed because it's more a culmination of their work. It must hurt a lot to really work your arse off on something for months and months and then have this unfinished version of it leaked out and exposed to the entire world. I can totally understand.

It's his own fault, though. Plenty of artists manage to not have anything leak until review copies are sent out, simply because they manage strict control over the recording process.
