I usually don't talk about leaks but since I think this one was done by a PR team, Yeezus is a fucking glorious mess. It's going to alienate some huge fans and intrigue some people who have never given a shit about Kanye before. It doesn't sound like Death Grips really but that's the reference point that people are going to be using the most.
Is everyone else's 10 tracks and 40 minutes long? It's a little shorter than I would have expected.
Yeah, that's it. It's a bit short but 40 minutes is certainly album length. I think if it was longer it might get tiresome. Also, we're lucky to even have this much according to Rick Rubin:
Kanye came over to play me what I assumed was going to be the finished album at three weeks before the last possible delivery date. We ended up listening to three hours of partially finished pieces. The raw material was very strong but hadn’t yet come into focus. Many of the vocals hadn’t been recorded yet, and many of those still didn’t have lyrics. From what he played me, it sounded like several months more work had to be done. I joined the project because after discussing what he had played for me, he asked if I would be open to taking all of the raw material on and help him finish it.

I've been doing really good about not pirating music for a while now but with the new Sigur Rós being so close, and now all this praising Yeezus, I feel my moral resolve starting to waiver. Don't know if I'll be able to hold out til Juneteenth.
