The Kanye association is not just seen, it can be heard on the track "It's Over" which really showcases Legend's vocals. Then Kanye comes on and.... just guess... uses Autotune to sing, not rap. John Legend sings faster than Kanye in this track. Again, I don't have a problem with Autotune I just feel like Kanye is running out of tricks, and I'm getting a little sad about it.
Besides my annoyance with Kanye, I like this album. I like that John Legend seems to be able to do the things his producer is struggling with; using a new sound while still keeping some of his old style. The song "Quickly" featuring Brandy is the one song the album could lose. Brandy seems to have lost her touch, and the chorus of the song is whiney and too repetitive. High points include "It's Over" "Green Light" with Andre 3000, and a more typical Legend sounding song, "Cross the Line".
