Kanye West 2018


#381

It’s ‘The King of Limbs Part 2’ all over again!


#382

Exactly. This album is rubbish, so there must be another one just around the corner!


#383

Weird that Pitchfork slated one and said the other was begrudgingly really good but gave them both basically the same score


#384

They really should have knocked a couple of points off that score, or, failing that, gotten someone else to write the review (once they’d decided the team at large liked it. Ie - once they’d been taken to Wyoming)


#385

For all their bluster, Kanye’s won this one again hasn’t he. The music press will all be raging at him for going to Trump’s re-election campaign rallies in 2020 whilst giving the new album 7/10


#386

Meh. Putting too much stock into what they think, that ain’t his cultural capital. White bearded music critics will keep moralising over and analysing his records. Pitchfork will inevitably become some old man publication, Kanye to them as Bono is to Rolling Stone or some shit. But Kanye ain’t so cool, kids won’t bump his tracks while hanging on street corners, DJs won’t play his records. In that sense, he’s very much lost.


#387

And yeah, all the conversation translated into slightly improved first week sales numbers for ye, but I’ll be amazed if that album is hanging around in the charts for more than a couple of weeks


#388

True, though does anything other than the Greatest Showman OST hang around the charts these days?


#389

Drake’s last album hasn’t left the US charts in 2 years since release. Pretty sure the same is true about DAMN in over a year. Ye probably won’t last the summer


#390

Grown on me so much. Probably the best thing, front to back, that Ye’s put out since MBDTF. And Cudi, ever.

Shame about ye, and all the other unpleasantness. Still puts a dampner on it


#391

Well Kim did say in some interview he had a whole other album completed then scrapped it all and recorded ye in two weeks. But this strikes me as the manic behavior of someone with serious problems rather than part of some grand strategy to come back with a masterpiece album after we’re done with all these mini-LPs.

Everything on Daytona feels like it was recorded relatively recently too which makes you wonder about all the potentially great Push tracks from previous iterations of his album.


#392

was not expecting to be greeted this morning by two sets of wazzo jugs. err, thanks kanye?


#393

7 songs with the lemonheads


#394

So err, we going to talk about this or what? (blurred for NSFW)


#395

Definitely the first time anyone has used nudity in a fashion shoot so yeah probably worth taking about at length


#396

I’m more surprised the tweet’s still up more than anything


#397

I think twitter allows nudity doesn’t it? Also he’s blurred the highly offensive female body parts so it’s probably fine


#398

I guess so? Just seemed quite a surprise when it popped up on t/l late last night


#399

Nudity? Well he’s crossed the line for me! I am outraged.
