From My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, this is “Hell of a Life” –
Standout tracks: All of it. Seriously.
Weakest track: Just the “All of the Lights” interlude, really.
This was: up until the release of Yeezus, my favorite Kanye album. It has since been usurped (and gloriously, at that), but remains a tremendous record regardless. Hard to believe it’s been almost a full 3 years since it was released. At 13 tracks, it’s one of the most diverse albums from the hip-hop or rap genres that I’ve ever listened to, transcending a host of different subgenres. Totally into it.
