that's it, it'd be a great album otherwise. the lyrics are so bad on some songs "I'm In It" that it's hard to listen to. my only other complaint would be that despite Bound 2 being a great song, it doesn't fit with the rest of the album
This album is pretty envelope pushing as far as mainstream hip hop is concerned. But yeah the lyrics are honestly pure shit. Some rappers get away with shit lyrics with a flow at least, this album has neither lyrics nor flows.
Kanye has always been a great musician but not a great rapper. Since Yeezus is minimalist, he can't fall back on production value and since it's supposed to be "aggressive" he can't rely on lyrics either.
There's some bad stuff on here and even the good stuff isn't amazing >On Sight A bit experimental and noisy. I like that but others might not. Also the lyrics are hilarious >Black Skinhead Fun but lyrics aren't great and it's mixture of punk and rap is very unappealing to sum >I am a god straight up edgelord and shit >New Slaves God Tier Kanye Song >Hold My Liquor Shitty singing and bad lyrics >I'm in it Really don't remember this one >Blood on the leaves Intense and great trap beat but the sample doesn't really work, the lyrics are silly and it goes on too long >Guilt Trip don't remember this at all >Send it up pretty good senpai >Bound2 God tier
>On Sight Beat is fun and driving, works as an opener but the lyrics are pretty awful >Black Skinhead Great beat, catchy, with decent lyrics >I am a god Not really a single good moment in this whole song...beat and lyrics are similarly dull >New Slaves Decent beat and lyrics are good if a bit hypocritical but not a fan of the second half >Hold My Liquor Can't stand the autotune and the lyrics again are just awful >I'm in it Literally 0/10...never heard worse lyrics from Kanye >Blood on the leaves Fantastic beat that is completely ruined by pointless autotune and awful lyrics >Guilt Trip nobody remembers this song >Send it up or this one >Bound2 Beat is a nice change of pace, but again, lyrics are just average at best
Great production all round (accept perhaps for Black Skinhead, which sounds a bit thin)
I honestly think yeezus has some of Kanye's best lyrics. If you appreciate them in the context of what Kanye's trying to *do* with the album, they're fantastic: often funny, sometimes emotional, and, importantly, always interesting.
>On Sight Lyrics are pretty wack, but still enjoyable. Great beat >Black Skinhead Catchy, weak lyricism >I am a God skip, pretty trash >New slaves probably the best lyricism on the album, not a fan of the beat though. >Hold My Liqour Not good, no reason to not skip >I'm in it see I am a God, utter rubbish >Blood on the Leaves If you don't mind the autotune this song is great. Don't really care for the lyrics as they don't stand out to much once the chorus, hard hitting beat whatever kicks in. >Guilt Trip I enjoyed this song, pretty good start to the song but it overstays it's welcome and the lyricism is forgettable at best >Send it up Enjoyable, wack lyrics but they're pretty funny. Reminds me of On Sight (not beat wise though) >Bound 2 tied with new slaves for best lyricism on the album, pretty clever at points and while it stands out, it is the end track after all.
I like the album, but the mid part of it is rubbish. Hold My Liqour, I'm in it and I am a God are all pretty awful but I enjoy the rest of the tracks on the album. The lyrics can be a huge turnoff for some, but I don't mind them to much. strong 6
>>61749917 yea i wish all musicians i listened to would tack songs on the end of their new albums in the style of their older material to remind me that they can still sound like how they've sounded in the past
