I'm actually quite at a loss to explain why I persist in checking out Kanye West?
It would be easy as pie to view him merely as the Trumpish clown his public persona makes him out to be.
- Well let's face it : The man is remarkably talented. It's a tough one to swallow but there it is.
- Introspective, reflective lyrics. Not all of it, certainly, and not very easily accessible either. But still. There it is.
- An arresting streak of darkness on this album. Depression, suicide, mental disorder.
- There is not much wrong with it really, except I don't really like it... Hard pressed to explain why, as you can see.
In short : Nah. Maybe next time...
