As a result, the record comes off like a culmination and an instant greatest hits, the ultimate realization of his strongest talents and divisive public persona.

My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy is hands-down the most ambitious mainstream rap album ever made.

A frequently astonishing, no-holds-barred tour de force that not only eclipses his previous four albums in scope and creativity (no small feat), but also makes everything else on the radio sound positively amateurish by comparison.

My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy is a true testament to Kanye’s magnificent ability to craft and create music.

My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fanstasy is Kanye’s long-awaited opus, a work of art that sees him finally reach the potential that was clear for all to see in College Dropout

It’s his best album, but it’s more than that — it’s also a rock-star manifesto for a downsizing world.

For rap fans it's both a testament to the versatility of the genre and Kanye's own brilliance that he can make something so refreshingly different which still fits comfortably in the rap canon.

Fantasy is hardly as difficult or artsy as it wants to think it is, but its emotional complexity more than compensates for bulging song lengths and near-constant pomposity.

But it is the heart, soul, and humanity of My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy that ultimately marks it as the defining pop moment of 2010.

Kanye West’s Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy is a sprawling, ambitious, orchestral fuck-you of an album, and he wants you to know it.

Easily the most sophisticated mainstream album of all time. Many forget this album could have ended Kanye West's career after various public scandals and what many touted a disappointing album in 808s & Heartbreak. Instead, Kanye West showed us an album of great triumph and sonic refinement unparalleled to any other musician in our generation.

The beat's are solid, the featured rappers sound better than ever, yet Kanye sounds terrible. His rapping is messy and his singing is atrocious. He writes some good lyrics, but only on the songs with okay beats. Every song with a great beat has either boring or frustrating lyrics. But, it slowly turns better as the record continues.

Before that there was POWER, there was Monster.
Turn off All of the Lights and Let's play the Blame Game? that is my Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.
This was a review, or not.
