WBM Album Review: My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy

With a November 22nd, 2010 release date, the world now has the opportunity to explore the the psyche of the mad scientist, Kanye West. His latest creation: My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.

What he presents with this 13 track LP, is something that has built up a reputation since the inception of G.O.O.D. Friday, the release of the innovative Mural video, "Power" and short movie, "Runaway" based around the music that this album consists of. Interestingly enough, there's no mistake for how ever the feeling toward Ye may be, his music has quite the appeal to it.

More a hip hop hybrid album, Kanye takes things in another direction from his last project, "808's the Heartbreaks." Featuring Kid Cudi, John Legend, Raekwon, Swizz Beats, Jay-Z, Alicia Keys, Elton John, Fergie, Bon Iver, CyHi The Prince, Rick Ross, Pusha T, Rihanna and Nicki Minaj, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy makes for a great listen.

Just how great??? Very stellar effort, in my opinion. The fine detail placed on the production from Rza, No ID, Mike Dean, S1, Bink!, Dj Frank E, Jeff Bhasker and Mike Caren coupled with the power collaborations, easily make this 5th studio recording his best work to date.

Standouts include the 3 singles, "Power," "Monster," and "Runaway," but also phenomenal listens in Gorgeous ft. Kid Cudi and Raekwon, Devil In A New Dress ft. Rick Ross and Lost In The World ft. Bon Iver.

My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy is now available and WBM Certified.
