My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy review

This year for music was pretty much the same as last year’s boring, lack of excitement, and slowly declining. What a year to be a music fan, huh? Even with lackluster year there were some surprises. My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, Kanye West’s 5th album, is a breath of fresh air for both rap and music in general. Rap music in general is a dying breed; some even say the next disco, so to hear a rap album done so well is amazing. From beginning to end, every single track has something to offer to the listeners. Even the intro with Nicki Minaj, a 5 sec skit, is great. To be honest, this is Kanye West weakest album and that says a lot because this is a solid album. I felt that they were too many feature rappers that ruined the tracks. A good example “the devil in a blue dress” a great song, but Rick Ross just ruined the song by sharing his verse that had absolutely nothing to do with the track, “making love to the angle of death,” seriously? If Kanye West made one track with just himself it would’ve been a better album. A solid album, one of the years best

**** 1/2 out of 5
