MBDTF.

"Lil Wayne may be a Martian, but West has his own galaxy."




Rolling Stone and the musical purists/notoriously difficult to please critics at Pitchfork deemed the album Perfect via their scoring methods.

Habitual anti Ye's, naysayers, like Rachel Hwang who penned Kanye West=Asshole (But A Genius Asshole) found themselves honest enough to admit,
 "I have very mixed feelings about this album. On one hand, it’s Kanye. On the other hand, it’s fantastic."

POW!

The review of My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy by Drew Beringer at Absolute Punk speaks for me.

...So Imma let it speak for me.

but as to tickle my fancy,

I'll play a Wayne/Minaj'esque game of word association
à la "It's going down... BASEMENT."

Dr. You: 
"James, what are your immediate thoughts when conjuring My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy?"

Me: 
"THIS SHIT IS FUCKING BANANAS. WEST IS A MUSICAL GENIUS DESPITE HIS ABSENCE OF CLASSIC MUSICAL TRAINING, HIS INSTRUMENT IS THE STUDIO AND HE KNOWS IT WELL. BY FAR THE MOST ARTFULLY PRODUCED AND MASTERFULLY COMPOSED ALBUM ACROSS ALL GENRES OF THIS GENERATION. THIS GRANDIOSITY OF MUSIC HASN'T BEEN MATCHED SINCE THE EVENT ALBUMS OF YESTER YEAR A LA THE QUEEN'S AND CROSBY, STILLS, NASH, AND YOUNG'S, HENDRIX'S,  BEATLES', THE DOOR'S, JOURNEY'S, GEORGE CLINTON'S & MICHAEL JACKSON'S DU MONDE . LAYING IN MY BED, BOSE HEADPHONES IN PLAY, I NEARLY SHED A TEAR LISTENING TO THE HORNS, TRIBAL CALLS, RHYTHMIC WONDERS OF ALL OF THE LIGHTS AND LOST IN THE WORLD. A TEAR. THIS ALBUM IS LOUD, SOFT, GLITZY, BEAUTIFUL, TRIFLING, OBNOXIOUS, GENTLE, GORGEOUS, AND ABOVE A FUCKING EARGASM. 
IT'S AN EAR ORGASM. 

Dr. You: 
"Umm... ok."

Me: 
"Hope that helps."
