This is a review on Kanye’s album, not my own beautiful dark twisted fantasy. That would more than likely interest you, but thats not something I would put on a blog. Maybe Kanye would. Actually I know he would. No need to discuss that.
So the album is amazing and everyone else is talking about it, so why would I? No one wants a blog that says what everyone else says cuz that would be instant death.
So here goes: the album is amazing because it combines the old school with the things of today. And the craftmanship in the production is astounding. Its got the old skool hip hop feel, but with autotune and plenty of rap (of course). This album reminds me of Curtis Mayfield actually. Not when he was with the Impressions, but afterward when he started doing Funk.
And if you haven’t seen the Runaway video watch it. Its what Kanye shows that he believes to be beautiful, well at least while making this album. I can’t say he thinks or feels the same way for long, its just that this vid shows for at least a moment what he feels to be beautiful. It is not a waste of your 35 minutes. This vid is Kanye’s version of Michael Jackson’s Moonwalker and it’s got a tribute to him in it. Its very minimalistic, has Selita Ebanks, and a lot of ballerinas. Its definitely at least a little twisted, but it goes well with his Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.
