‘The Life of Pablo’ Falls Short

Last week, Kanye West released his album The Life of Pablo on streaming services.

After listening to it, I came to the conclusion that Kanye has a different tone in every album.

Graduation was upbeat and optimistic.

In My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy Kanye had a sense of confusion and trying to figure life out, with tracks such as Dark Fantasy, Runaway, and Lost in the World.

More recently, Watch The Throne and Yeezus took a more of a negative tone, and The Life of Pablo has really embraced that negativity.

Along with this negative tone, The Life of Pablo also seems to have a sense of anger as well, which is something Kanye has showed on songs in the past, but not to this level on a full album.

After listening through the album, I realized that nearly all the songs have a negative tone, both the beat and the lyrics. There are no upbeat songs, which was something I’d come to enjoy from Kanye in the past.

Overall, I would not recommend The Life of Pablo because the beats and lyrical content. This album has more anger, and negativity than any album Kanye has previously produced. There are some beats and songs that are okay, but none that I would recommend based on the caliber of music Kanye has been able to produce in the past.
