This album is groundbreaking in terms of its production. Although similar sounds could already be found among artists such as Death Grips, Kanye attempts a more pop oriented sound while still using the brash, screeching sounds. Lyrically, Kanye West remains intriguing unlike his biggest competition this year, Jay Z, with MCHG. I find the best line to simply be "Jesus wept" in Bound 2. A biblical reference that illustrates Kanye's struggles as well.
