I don't know how I feel about that.

I've also still only given the album one listen all the way through. I need to correct that. "Monster" is still my favorite track, I think.

Gorgeous keeps finding its way into my head though. And there are no bad tracks.

It took me less than the first paragraph to say, "I'll bet this is Dombal."

God damn it.

Five paragraphs in and I have no idea what the hell is going on.

Comparing Kanye to Michael Jackson is a flawed premise to begin with.

He got one part right, though, at least for me. Slow Jamz was my introduction to Kanye, and his verse made me an immediate fan. Then I heard Through The Wire, which I still think is one of his best songs, and I was definitely hooked.

If this does end up being one of their top 10 albums of 2010-2019, I see no way to justify that based on this review.

Far superior:

Fair enough to give this a 10 I reckon. It's simply a remarkable album.

One positive of the P4k review is that it directed me to this brilliant little piece of Power:

My childlike creativity, purity and honesty
Is honestly being prodded by these grown thoughts
Reality is catching up with me
Taking my inner child, I'm fighting for it
Custody
With these responsibilities that they entrusted me
As I look down at my diamond encrusted piece

Awesome.

Also, I'm finally going through this thing for the first time. So far, so very fucking good.

This.

So is "Monster," like Travis said, though Jay-Z was just off at the beginning of his verse...even his flow was bizarre. But, that beat. That fucking beat.

I'm most glad that the skits are missing, since they're easily one of my least favorite aspects of hip-hop albums in general, but especially on Kanye's.

Also, I wish I didn't have to hear about Kanye's dick and black balls, but I guess that's a sacrifice that must be made to listen to a musically genius piece of work.
