Kanye West released his 6th studio effort in 2013. This album marks a drastic change in his sound where he went for a more rock oriented, industrial, loud and abrasive, experimental sound. So this guy just mixed the genres that I hardly know. Listening to this album was one of the hardest experiences of my life as I couldn't even initially decide if it was good or not. It took me 6-7 listens to arrive to the score I'm at rn. Alot of times, I was confused as to tf was going on but I couldn't keep my headphones down. That's the way the production is. Kanye and Rick Rubin worked on this with help from No I.D, Travis Scott, Daft Punk etc to create a weird, but somewhat catchy sound. Lyrically it's not really memorable, with most lyrics revolving around Relationships, Kim, issues within the black community or it was Kanye just being his braggadacious self.
His flow and vocals were pretty catchy. "Black Skinhead" and "New Slaves" are two very powerful statements. All the features did a great job.
Overall, another great album I got to listen to. It did take a lot of time to grow on me. But listening to it was indeed a great experience. A must listen for someone who wants to get treated to something unique.
