"Stronger" is a remix of a remix of a sample (or something like that). Kanye took the song from a Daft Punk song called "harder, better, faster, stronger", which was taken from Edwind Birdsong. The Daft Punk version of the song (listen) is pretty good, but I think Kanyes version is crap. "Stronger" just reminds me of "Workout Plan" with its exercise overtones. I still think Kanye is a very talented producer and rapper, but I do not think this is his best work. I would have liked to here some more innovative (or more catchy) beat, with some more substantial rapping. The lyrics, and the bravado are not inspiring. In fact, they are lack luster. I really like the synth of the beat, but you can't attribute that to Kanye, it was Daft Punk. Although the song sucks, the video is interesting, and kinda cool. The vid took three months to complete, and it is a re-make of Akira, an Anime type film.The vid has some sweet cinematography stuff, and some funky shades!
