Kanye West's "The Life of Pablo" may fall short of his best work, but it does contain some respectable tracks whilst simultaneously trying to expand Kanye's sound, which works most of the time. The opening few tracks are pretty good, especially the first two, which are especially memorable compared to the rest of that track (maybe because of the lyrics on "Father Stretch My Hands Pt. 1"; they get quite ridiculous). However, the album never really reaches this level of listenability until the final few songs, making for a very dull, boring and forgettable middle section, only with the exception of a couple of tracks. Every song is audacious, whether it be beat-wise or lyrically; Kanye does truly try a little bit of everything on this record. For the most part, this riskiness pays off but, when it doesn't, this album can get fairly dull.
