Kanye West - Black Skinhead
Kanye’s new album Yeezus is one of the year’s better albums thus far. I really respect that every album he makes he forces himself to change up his style and reinvent his music in new ways. Most of the time he accomplishes this with great success; however, sometimes it doesn’t quite translate into outstanding music you’ll be playing for years to come, such as with 808 & Heartbreaks, which is my least favorite of his albums. Kanye throws a lot of unique track layouts, samples, and sounds into each song to keep you on your toes. The songs are fairly unpredictable the first couple listens, but after listening to it more you’ll realize what Kanye is musically going for. This is very evident with Black Skinhead. I’ll be posting more from this album, and hopefully if my work schedule isn’t too harsh I can make Yeezus my first video review. I meant to do that for Tyler’s album Wolf, but unfortunately I never got around to it.
My Song Rating: 9.8 out of 10
