After my initial reluctance, I’ve decided to put this review up, late and all.
It’s no secret that Kanye West somewhat went over the deep end in recent years and it’s translated over to his music. From start to finish, it sounds like pent-up anger at the entire world. He addresses a lot of political and personal topics as usual. The production is… ODD, at first, but it grows on you, I guess. I didn’t actually like a song until I Am a God, then it lost me… then got me back on Black Skinhead. This was the first time through.
I listened to it again, after seeing how much everyone enjoyed this album. It’s a relatively good album, from an artistic sense. In terms of past and present hip hop culture, it’s exactly what I said earlier.
The cover art… or lack thereof, is a red sticker over a blank, exposed CD case and a blank face CD inside.
YEAH… he takes that media coverage thing serious, huh?
Yeezus is definitely different. I can’t say I hated it. I can’t say I love it. I’ll have to see if any of it grows on me.
I guess so, Ye…
