How could G.O.O.D. Music Cruel Summer has so many co.Production credits

Does anyone know How or Why there are so many co.production credits on this album.... Is this a case of a bunch of producers being locked up in a room and collaborating? (and/or) are producers just submitting beats and Kanye and his staff are finishing off the productions?...

because the original 'producers' just made a beat and not an actual song.

I mean. Obviously, different people bring totally different ideas to the table. I remember reading about either mdtf or wtt and kanye having all kinds of producers coming thru helping out. He'd always had other people helping him make tracks in some shape or form and that's what he's great at. Recognizing that another person, or group of people might be better suited to do this or that. Dude knows so many damn producers, lol. I mean, if I had friends like that, I'd definitley have em come thru. It's more fun anyway, and it's not about the money for him, at this point. But yeah, maybe he just wanted to spend time with the new girlfriend and she's probably pretty high maintenance.

Looking at that list closer though... Not just the producers, but really the rappers on there too... It does kinda look like they kinda just got who they could. Idk man. All I know is the last 2 songs I heard kanye on, on the radio
I wasn't feelin at all.

You can stream it here:

G.O.O.D. Music (Kanye West, Big Sean, Pusha T and more) – Cruel Summer [Full Album Stream] | Fist In The Air

A lot of good sounds (no pun intended), some great ideas and other potential brilliance that falls flat. Not traditional Hip Hop in any real sense (few breaks here and there of course), but over all a good listen for anyone serious about producing music to keep up with the Jones'es. The production list there is a who's who of who's hot, coming up, leftfield and hype. In places.... it just doesn't mix. This doesn't detract from an ambitious and mostly rewarding listening experience and I can't wait to get my hands on a hi quality copy to really get amongst these mixes.

3 stars

Producer wise, depends who's tracks were sampled, what was used etc.... some of those combinations should, on paper anyway, turn out AMAZING!!!! but... ah well.

check this out...sign the petition: Give Fans The Credit | GRAMMY.com

here's the press release

Quote:
SANTA MONICA, Calif. (August 23, 2012) — The Recording Academy® (GRAMMY.com | The Official Site of Music's Biggest Night), the organization internationally known for the GRAMMY Awards®, is launching a campaign to "Give Fans the Credit" — a new initiative that will help enhance music fans' discovery of new music by ensuring all music creators are credited for their work on digitally released recordings. Honorary Ambassadors who will help further awareness of this important issue include: 12-time GRAMMY®-winning producer T Bone Burnett; GRAMMY-winning songwriter Lamont Dozier; singer/songwriter/percussionist Sheila E; singer/songwriter Skylar Grey; five-time GRAMMY-winning producer and songwriter Jimmy Jam; two-time GRAMMY-winning producer and songwriter RedOne; and three-time GRAMMY-winning producer Don Was. Additionally, an online petition for fans to sign and a microsite with further info is available at www.givefansthecredit.com. For updates and breaking news, please visit GRAMMY.com | The Official Site of Music's Biggest Night and The Recording Academy's social networks on Twitter and Facebook: The GRAMMYs (TheGRAMMYs) on Twitter, The GRAMMYs | Facebook.

"The staggering pace of digital innovation gives consumers access to more and more information but in this case — digitally released music without liner notes — the music fan is getting less information," said Neil Portnow, President/CEO of The Recording Academy. "We can watch movies online with the credits included, and the same should be true for digitally released recordings. If music devices can access millions of tracks in the cloud, we're confident we can find a way to acknowledge those who created the tracks here on earth."

Songwriters, non-featured performers, producers and engineers make significant contributions to recordings but as liner notes are becoming less common, these creators rarely receive credit on digital players. Currently, the only credits consumers are generally able to see are the song title and artist; but music fans want and should have access to the rest of the information: the songwriter who composed the work, the producers and engineers who created the sound, and the musicians who bring the song to life.

The "Give Fans the Credit" campaign will address this issue on several fronts. First, music fans who want information about their favorite tracks can sign a petition at www.givefansthecredit.com. Second, the campaign ambassadors and other leaders at The Recording Academy will begin a series of discussions with digital music services to brainstorm ways to deliver more robust crediting information on digital music platforms. At the same time, The Academy's Producers & Engineers Wing will continue its efforts to ensure accurate data is contained within the music files.

By engaging consumers and the industry in this effort, we seek to give music fans the rich information and content they desire," said Daryl Friedman, Chief Advocacy & Industry Relations Officer for The Recording Academy. "Discovery is a key part of today's digital music services. By knowing who wrote, produced and played on the tracks, consumers will be able to discover even more great music. This will give both creators and fans the credit they deserve."

Established in 1957, The Recording Academy is an organization of musicians, songwriters, producers, engineers and recording professionals that is dedicated to improving the cultural condition and quality of life for music and its makers. Internationally known for the GRAMMY Awards — the preeminent peer-recognized award for musical excellence and the most credible brand in music — The Recording Academy is responsible for groundbreaking professional development, cultural enrichment, advocacy, education and human services programs. The Academy continues to focus on its mission of recognizing musical excellence, advocating for the well-being of music makers and ensuring music remains an indelible part of our culture.

I like this album a lot. Reason I popped on here is to ask... what's going on with Kanye's vox in "Morning?" Sounds like crazy phase issues maybe...
