Agrressive, raw, powerful - heavily influenced by Section 80
on 19 January 2016
I have managed to stay largely unaware of KW apart from the Glastonbury debacle, thinking he was some sort of media darling with no talent.
Listened to this after being told by my teenage son this was not the case and was impressed. imho there is only one track on the album that isn't strong (New Slaves). Unfortunately the personality he reveals is far from pleasant.
I have since tried the more recommended 'try this first' albums by Kanye, and found them far more of a slow burn.
Kanye seemed to have been listening to Section 80 by Kendrick Lamar, as he's used parts of it - that album is far superior imho, even if it doesn't have Daft Punk involved.
