* VindicatedByHistory: People have been a ''lot'' kinder to ''808s and Heartbreak'' after the success of ''My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy'' proved that [[ObfuscatingStupidity Kanye knew damn well what he was doing the whole time.]] It also doesn't hurt that it's Kanye's most influential album by far, more or less single-handedly reinventing the modern R&B scene and influencing artists like Music/TheWeeknd, Music/{{Drake}} and Music/FrankOcean.

Added DiffLines:

** ''The College Dropout'' may be beaten by ''Graduation'' in terms of how fluffy the production is thanks to it's futuristic synth-driven sound, strings, and arena style with many of the songs including melodic singing. Examples of such are "Good Morning," "I Wonder," "Good Life," and "Flashing Lights."

* EvenBadMenLoveTheirMamas: ''Yes.'' While not necessarily a ''bad'' guy, Kanye sure loves his mom in spite of all his [[GeniusDitz dumb]] and [[JerkAss insensitive]] antics.

* IncrediblyLamePun: Depending on your tolerance level. It's a safe bet that he didn't include any lyrics ''because'' he thought they were lame, but some can be quite face-palmy.

** ''Yeezus'' seems to be going down the same road. It's received more acclaim than ''808s & Heartbreak'' but the general public has been divided on its industrial influences, with some unfavorably comparing it to Music/DeathGrips. At any rate, both albums received a LoveItOrHateIt reception, and it's too soon to tell whether ''Yeezus'' will be as well-regarded in the long term ''808s.''
