Kanye saves

The divisiveness of 808s & Heartbreak is amazing... (so amazing... it's amazing...)  I'd like to hear from other people who've heard this record.  How many times have you heard it?  Is it a "grower"?  Do you find it therapeutic?  Most importantly, do you think 808s & Heartbreak can SAVE LIVES?  William Bowers' article has me thinking... with your emotional well-being in the balance, which way do you tip on Kanye's new album?
