The Life of Pablo by Kanye West

By Bdog

Uneven, but occasionally brilliant 8th full length album by the always polarizing and even hated West. West’s discography remains singular amongst both rap artists and pop artists in general during the 21st century. Like it or not no one else has been able to maintain West’s quality level over each and every release.

While “The Life Of Pablo” doesn’t match the artistic success of artier releases like “Late Registration”, “Yeezus” and especially “My Beautiful, Dark, Twisted Fantasy”. Where “Pablo” lacks a cohesive concept, West’s endless tinkering with track titles and the actual music on the record makes it the first truly “fluid” album release- no physical version at all and not even a definitive digital version. Kanye refuses to bend to the laws of the music business- he makes his own rules and that IS the story here. Highlights include Kendrick Lamar collaboration “No More Parties In L.A.” as well as gospel-inflected, Chance the Rapper assisted “Ultralight Beam”.
