Kanye West - JESUS IS KING

After almost a year of waiting, we finally get Ye's "Jesus is King". Kanye delivers an album with amazing musicality but lacks in the lyrical department. The production on this album carries it for sure. The stellar production gives off some TLOP vibes but it's still different. The features also do great on here with Ty Dolla Sign, Ant Clemens and Clipse doing great on the songs they are featured on. The main problem with the album other than the many missed release dates seems to be Kanye's lyrical content and vocal engineering. While we all expected this to be a more Christian-orientated album with lyrics revolving around that, some of the lyrics just don't come off right and some could even say some of them are corny. However the bigger problem is the vocal engineering on some of the songs. For example on Selah, Kanye sounds way too processed and I've heard some people even say he sounds like an angry old man on some of the songs. With some changes with the vocal engineering this could have been even higher but nevertheless I think Kanye has delivered something great. Overall a great album.

BEST TRACKS: Every Hour, Selah, On God, Everything We Need, God Is

WORST TRACKS: Closed on Sunday, Water
