Product Description

BBC Review

Love him or hate him, Kanye West is always intriguing, whether he’s flipping religion into a club jam or riffing on the Sierra Leone diamond trade.

There’s often substantial depth to his solo recordings, and even if the results aren’t always remarkable, there’s an overwhelming sense of passion behind each album. Kanye is honest with himself and his listeners, no matter the topic. Musically, he’s equally ambitious; many of his instrumentals help score our lives.

So maybe fatigue is a factor on Cruel Summer, a thin and largely unfocused effort that gathers his G.O.O.D. Music signees onto one album. While Kanye isn’t solely to blame for this dismal endeavour, he’s in charge, so shoulders most of the responsibility.

Throughout, featured contributors come across as contrived choices. Vocalists R. Kelly and Marsha Ambrosius sing about extended middle fingers and toting pistols. On Higher, The-Dream drones offbeat about being inebriated.

The Morning might be the biggest blunder. A song featuring Kanye, Raekwon, Common and Pusha T could’ve been the album’s centrepiece. Instead, a questionable hook and cartoony pop beat make it an afterthought.

And songs like Creepers (a Kid Cudi solo) and Bliss (a synth-heavy soul duet between Teyana Taylor and John Legend) sound like uninspired B-side filler.

But thankfully it’s not all bad. New God Flow, which reconfigures Ghostface Killah’s Mighty Healthy, is easily the album’s best track. On it, Kanye, Pusha T and Ghostface himself spit motivated verses over a dusty drum break and grim piano loop.

Mercy makes good use of meticulous drums and faint chimes, and Don’t Like is a raucous posse cut with Yeezy, Pusha, Jadakiss, Chief Keef and Big Sean. However, those good moments aren’t enough to save Cruel Summer, a recording of flashy excess that ultimately sinks into its own lethargy.

The oversized egos aren’t surprising here, but there’s no denying the disorganisation, as at least five of these songs should’ve remained on the cutting room floor. Kanye is an incredibly smart musician, so these results are truly baffling. Maybe he works better alone.

I found this a bit too "rap-py" to start with - I felt there wasn't enough of Kanye's usual classy selection of old school, melodic samples. It was all a bit too much "bitches and ho's" initially. But... what can I say? Kanye (despite being a bit of a douche from time to time) obviously is totally clued up and knows what direction he is heading in. A great grower.

this is a good album, its not amazing but its bloody good. It's so irritating hearing people say 'not knaye's best work'. ITS NOT HIS ALBUM. its a compilation of the artists on his GOOD Music record label. Hence it doesn't say 'kanye west - cruel summer'

I've been a massive Kanye West fan since the moment College dropout was released and I liked this album but its obvious to anybody that Kanye and JayZ who only has one verse made the whole GOOD music crew look bad as the likes of Pusha T and 2 chainzz were unable to match the ability of the Watch The Throne duo..

Standard Kanye stuff here. He has done various albums recently in a electronic style hip hop which is good but this is an album with more artists collaborating in another style. More a group effort. Just topping up the massive bank balance I imagine.

Personally I think this is the best pure hip-hop album of the year. This is Kanye at his best; producing and rapping, and no auto-tune etc. If you liked the songs that have been released, (clique, mercy, etc.) you'll love this. Worth every penny

I would have given it 5 stars if there was more Kanye. The songs which have him on are great, but he's not on as many of the tracks as most of us would like.
