8. Graduation (2007)
I’m sure that many people are surprised to see Graduation so low on this list. To be honest i’ve always found this project severely overrated and not on par with his previous works. Songs like “Stronger” and “Flashing Lights” earned him mainstream popularity and recognition but this album just feels weak. Little stands out to me and I feel as if it is lacking something. Maybe it’s the absence of the narrator he used on The College Dropout or Late Registration. No matter what it is, this project just didn’t sit with me as well as the other ones on this list.
