JOKES ON YOU!
THIS IS DEFINITELY NOT AN 100
Here is the actual review,

[Edit: Selah and a couple of the other songs are actually growing on me...I think if it was longer and featured even more topics my rating would definitely be higher.]

I can’t help but applaud Kanye for his sincerity and ambition in this sudden shift to Christian-centric music, this was an immensely bold action. As a Christian myself, it is cool to see someone with such societal status as himself essentially quit his former ways and follow Christ, even if it means it might destroy his entire career.

Kanye essentially embraced the Christian-rapper ethos. Personally I find Christian rap not very compelling and honestly cheesy, and definitely doesn’t help me grow in my walk. I actually find much beauty and sincerity in a lot of the secular albums I review. I believe Kanye should have taken the “Christian-Who-Raps” direction instead of the abrupt action of shoving Christianity down our throats in an unpleasant manner, especially with the enormous load of half-baked and unfinished ideas presented here. Essentially my main problem with this album is, I agree with a lot of the points here, but honestly the execution was very poor. Instead of stunning his massive fan base with purely christian topics, he should have done half and half, which looks like in my opinion including a couple of tracks concerning his recent conversion but also have some other tracks that were about other topics (albeit pure topics) that would retain the interest of his fans. However the better tracks presented here overshadow many of the weaker spots, such as Selah, Follow God, etc.

What we got in the end unfortunately is a very rushed and thrown together collection of tracks that have turned people off with its sloppy production and occasionally cheesy lyrics which instead could have gotten people interested in Christianity.



Thank you for reading!

I think you have to hear an album entirely more than once to know if it's perfect

well that was a lazy review that took no effort outside trying to figure out how to make it sound as fanboyish as possible without making it blatantly obvious
