5.0 out of 5 stars Great special edition - Goosebumps
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 20 January 2020
...Wouldn't exactly call it a limited edition though since they're still producing these 10 years later but still special.

One of the best albums, if not THE best hip-hop album of the 2010's. I've got so much love for Kanye based on his limitless talent - he truly is one of the greatest artist of our lifetimes with an absolutely insane understanding of musical techniques. I think most people don't care to try and understand that this goes far beyond the music itself - the melting of fact and feeling, love and hate, happy and sad - duality and emotion which Ye seems to be able to paint a perfectly balanced yet vivid picture of using his chosen canvas of personal, social and societal reactivity and reflection, meanwhile never forgetting the most ancient of harmonic rules that predates all popular music, and bringing it up-to-date with celebrity culture by personifying and addressing society's bloodthirsty appetite for entertainment and consumption (in my opinion he goes on to illustrate this better in "Yeezus" - I think he discovered the amazing impact of the subtle or extremely distinctive comparison of feelings through the music).

This is just scratching the surface of the harmonic association that Ye uses to make the audience feel emotionally connected to the feeling of the music and the tonality of the composition in the wider context of himself as en ego-driven entity, while simultaneously singing about the most absurd, abhorrent or mundane things... what does a minor note played over a happy lyric mean? Distaste? Disregard? morbid fascination? How does he make us feel so close, yet so far away from him personally? The emotional connection? The celebrity driven disconnect? The perspective of the lyrics? He never sings "to" you, it's always "at" you - it's always in the context of someone else: his partner(s), Jay-Z, the media, governments, art, fame, even his own thoughts... I keep discovering tiny nuances of Ye's personality on old tracks that I listen to and it throws through a loop trying to figure out what it all means - Hopefully I get there in the end :)
