My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy

So we really had to think hard about how we go about this. Kanye West has a new album and we have something to say about it. So does the rest of the world. Lovers and haters all united in one thing... something to say about Ye.

We didn't want to do an in depth review. There's enough of those already. We just wanted to say something.

It's good.

Really good.

Dark Fantasy opens as the first track and from the moment we hear the beat drop and Ye bounce around with wordplay like a pro the expectations for the album skyrocket. If you want anything more descriptive than that you NEED to buy the album.
Just forget who the man is behind it so you dont judge the book by (in this case) it's series of contreversal covers.

Appearances from KiD CuDi (his destiny was to feature on Gorgeous), Rihanna, Raekwon, Nicki Minaj, Jay Z, Pusha T (BIG expectations), Prynce Cy Hi, Swizz Beatz ,The RZA, Rick Ross, Bon Iver and John's huge.

Sure a few of the tracks have already featured on Kanye's G.O.O.D Fridays consecutively releasing tracks each Friday, but the mastered releases with the sly little additions are quality and when played as an album it's just like they've been put into context...finally.

It's definitely the deepest piece of art Kanye has produced. Ever. More Epic than.... well we're sure many of his recent happenings can spring to mind in comparison of epic-ness.

It's an album, not songs.....a real album. Remember those? Sure.

Most played?

All of The Lights
Monster (HUGE track...thanks to Nicki Minaj...oh my goodness)

Yeah that's right, Power isn't in our top three. Surely that says something?
