Donda
New - LP - B0034448-01
Sealed 2022 4LP Deluxe Edition Original. Housed In A Heavy Duty Double Gatefold Jacket. "The First Noticeable Thing About Kanye West's Tenth Studio Album, Donda, Is Its Mass. With 27 Tracks, A Running Time Of An Hour And 48 Minutes, And A Dense List Of Contributors Including Jay-Z, Kid Cudi, Roddy Ricch, Jay Electronica, Travis Scott, Lil Durk, And Many, Many More, Donda Is Poised To Be An Epic Statement, An All-out Event. The Music Itself Tells A Different Story. Still Bearing The Religious Overtones Of 2019's Jesus Is King, West Assembles The Sprawling Donda From Minimal Arrangements That Linger While Feeling Eerily Unfinished. This Is Perhaps Most Apparent In The Conspicuous Absence Of Drums From Many Of The Tracks. The Hooky "Jail" Sounds Like A Rocked-up Version Of Something From Graduation, With Auto-tuned Vocals Swimming Happily Around Crunchy Guitars. It's A Banger With No Bang, Though, Waiting Until The Last Seconds Of The Song To Bring In A Brief, Stilted Drum Pattern. "Tell The Vision" Also Lacks A Forceful Rhythm Track, Stitching Together A Stumbling Piano Loop With Fragmented Hi-hat Skitters To Hold A Ghostly Verse From Pop Smoke. Traces Of The Old Kanye Show Up Alongside This New Subtractive Approach. "Junya" Is Upbeat And Confident, With A Cheery Church Organ Sample And Another Skeletal Rhythm Track Serving As A Backing Track For Lively Flows. We're Reminded Of West's Production Mastery When He Cuts Up A Lauryn Hill Sample For Standout Track "Believe What I Say," While "Lord I Need You" Carries Diminished Echoes Of The Grandiose Pop Magnitude Of My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, And The Thick Bass And Abrasive Rush Of "God Breathed" Would Fit In On Yeezus. Donda Isn't Without Its Highlights, But Taken As A Whole, It's Both Confused And Confusing. The Album Is Purportedly A Tribute To Kanye's Late Mother, Donda West, Who Died In 2007. Donda's Presence Is Felt Throughout The Record, In Particular During Moments Like The Somber Beauty Of "Jesus Lord," And More Directly On The Song That Bears Her Name And Includes Audio Of Her Speaking. In This Exhaustive Form, However, It Becomes Harder To Keep The Threads Of Any Emotional Narrative Or Even Fully Absorb The Slew Of Sometimes Only Partially Realized Ideas That Play Out Over The Course Of Donda's Nearly Two Hours. At A Certain Point, All But The Most Devoted Fans Might Have To Wonder If Everything That Made The Final Cut Is Completely Necessary. As With Every New Shape He Takes, Kanye Can Be Heard Deep Within Donda's Drum-Less Beats And Protracted Wandering. His Role As The Man Behind The Curtain Somehow Keeps The Songs Compelling Even As They Become Hard To Digest. 808s & Heartbreak Confounded Both Fans And Critics With Its Frigid Atmospheres And Gothic Undertones When It First Arrived In 2008, But Its Production Went On To Influence The Better Part Of The Next Decade Of Mainstream Pop And Rap. The First Few Times Through, Donda Feels Haunted And Incomplete, Yet There's A Spark Deep Inside The Songs That Suggests Kanye Might Merely Be Ahead Of The Curve. It Wouldn't Be The First Time."

Late Registration
New - LP - B0004813-01
Sealed 2021 Repress, No Hype Sticker. "Made In Czech Republic" Sticker On Back. "And Then, In A Flash, Kanye Was Everywhere, Transformed From Respected Producer To Big-name Producer/mc, Throwing A Fit At The American Music Awards, Performing "Jesus Walks" At The Grammys, Wearing His Diamond-studded Jesus Piece, Appearing On The Cover Of Time, Running His Mouth 24/7. One Thing That Remains Unchanged Is Kanye's Hunger, Even Though His Head Has Swollen To The Point Where It Could Be Separated From His Body, Shot Into Space, And Considered A Planet. Raised Middle Class, Kanye Didn't Have To Hustle His Way Out Of Poverty, The Number One Key To Credibility For Many Hip-hop Fans, Whether It Comes To Rapper Turned Rapping Label Presidents Or Suburban Teens. And Now That He Has Proved Himself In Another Way, Through His Stratospheric Success -- Which Also Won Him A Gaggle Of Haters As Passionate As His Followers -- He Doesn't Want To Be Seen As A Novelty Whose Ambitions Have Been Fulfilled. On Late Registration, He Finds Himself Backed Into A Corner, Albeit As King Of The Mountain. It's A Paradox, Which Is Exactly What He Thrives On. His Follow-up To The College Dropout Isn't Likely To Change The Minds Of The Resistant. As An Mc, Kanye Remains Limited, With All-too-familiar Flows That Weren't Exceptional To Begin With (You Could Place A Number Of These Rhymes Over College Dropout Beats). He Uses The Same Lyrical Strategies As Well. Take Lead Single "Diamonds From Sierra Leone," In Which He Switches From Boastful To Rueful; More Importantly, The Conflict Felt In Owning Blood Diamonds Will Be Lost On Those Who Couldn't Afford One With Years Of Combined Income. Even So, He Can Be Tremendous As A Pure Writer, Whether Digging Up Uncovered Topics (As On "Diamonds") Or Spinning A Clever Line ("Before Anybody Wanted K. West's Beats, Me And My Girl Split The Buffet At Kfc"). The Production Approach, However, Is Rather Different From The Debut. Crude Beats And Drastically Tempo-shifted Samples Are Replaced With A More Traditionally Musical Touch From Jon Brion (Fiona Apple, Aimee Mann), Who Co-produces With West On Most Of The Tracks. (Ironically, The Just Blaze-helmed "Touch The Sky" Tops Everything Laid Down By The Pair, Despite Its Heavy Reliance On Curtis Mayfield's "Move On Up.") West And Brion Are A Good, If Unlikely, Match. Brion's String Arrangements And Brass Flecks Add A New Dimension To West's Beats Without Overshadowing Them, And The Results Are Neither Too Adventurous Nor Too Conservative. While Krs-one Was The First To Proclaim, "I Am Hip-hop," Kanye West Might As Well Be The First Mc To Boldly State, "I Am Pop"." AMG - Andy Kellman more

My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy
New - LP - B0014695-01
Sealed 2023 LE 3xLP set pressed on premium vinyl and housed in a deluxe die cut, tri-fold jacket. Includes frameable artwork and collectors poster. Large metallic gold hype sticker on shrink. "As fatiguing as it is invigorating, as cold-blooded as it is heart-rending, as haphazardly splattered as it is meticulously sculpted, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy is an extraordinarily complex 70-minute set of songs. Listening to it, much like saying or typing its title, is a laborious process. In some ways, it's the culmination of Kanye West's first four albums, but it does not merely draw characteristics from each one of them. The 13 tracks, eight of which are between five and nine minutes in length, sometimes fuse them together simultaneously. Consequently, the sonic and emotional layers are often difficult to pry apart and enumerate. Nothing exemplifies its contrasting elements and maniacal extravagance as much as "All of the Lights." Rattling, raw, synthetic toms are embellished with brass, woodwinds, and strings. It’s a celebration of fame ("Fast cars, shooting stars") and a lament of its consequences ("Restraining order/Can't see my daughter"). Its making involved 42 people, including not one but two French horn players and over a dozen high-profile vocalists, only some of which are perceptible. At once, the song features one of the year's most rugged beats while supplying enough opulent detail to make Late Registration collaborator Jon Brion's head spin. "Blame Game" chills more than anything off 808s & Heartbreak. Sullen solo-piano Aphex Twin plays beneath morose cello; with a chorus from John Legend, a dejected, embittered West -- whose voice toggles between naturally clear-sounding and ominously pitched-down as it pans back and forth -- tempers wistfully-written, maliciously-delivered lines like "Been a long time since I spoke to you in a bathroom, ripping you up, fuckin' and chokin' you" with untreated and distinctively pained confessions like "I can't love you this much." The contrast in "Devil in a New Dress," featuring Rick Ross, is of a different sort; a throwback soul production provided by the Smokey Robinson-sampling Bink, it's as gorgeous as any of West's own early work, yet it's marred by an aimless instrumental stretch, roughly 90 seconds in length, that involves some incongruent electric guitar flame-out. Even less explicable is the last third of the nine-minute "Runaway," when West blows into a device and comes out sounding something like a muffled, bristly version of Robert Fripp's guitar. The only thing that remains unchanged is West's lyrical accuracy; for every rhyme that stuns, there's one deserving of mockery from any given contestant off the The White Rapper Show. As the ego and ambition swells, so does the appeal, the repulsiveness, and -- most importantly -- the ingenuity. Whether loved or loathed, fully enjoyed or merely admired, this album should be regarded as a deeply fascinating accomplishment." AMG - Andy Kellman more
