So as you can see…. we were both very excited.
Looking at it retrospectively, I have no idea why I was typing in caps lock. Yeezus isn’t really that good of an album. That’s right I said it.
I think it was just so unexpected. I was revising for my final exam and then my friend messaged me with that, it was just so sudden.
“OMDS THE LAST TRACK HAS A BEAT LIKE ITS MIXED FROM ALL HIS ALBUMS” refers to today’s blog song “Bound 2”, which is definitely one of the better songs from Yeezus – if not the best one.
It is… kinda like my friend said, reminiscent of the many older songs where Kanye utilised his chipmunk sampling producing on his first two albums.
It’s basically Kanye yelling at us over a sample about his, apparently everlasting love with Kim Kardashian but with similes and metaphors all over the place which I’m not able to explain to you.
Yeezus is a very loudly mixed album – it’s partly produced by Rick Rubin so there’s the explanation, so on a lot of the songs there is clicking and crackling everywhere. This song is no exception. Especially in the first few seconds where you can literally hear the cut and paste of the sample. The way it ends is quite abrupt and anticlimactic with the “UH-HUH HONEY” part. Nevertheless, it is a standout on an otherwise standard album.
Oh yeah, it also features vocals by the man who sings “Ooh wee” in “Signs” by Snoop Dogg ft. Justin Timberlake. Charlie Wilson, that’s his name. What a G.
