KANYE WEST ‘MY BEAUTIFUL DARK TWISTED FANTASY’ IS TIME MAGAZINE’S ALBUM OF THE YEAR

Kanye West’s new album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy has topped Time Magazine’s album of the year list. The write-up in the magazine said Yeezy’s album was “the musical equivalent of a one-handed back handspring”.
“Kanye West can seem like an attention-hungry young child who constantly tugs on his mother’s pant leg, saying, ‘Watch this! Watch this!’” it wrote.

“But once Kanye got our attention, instead of a simple somersault, he delivered the musical equivalent of a one-handed back handspring.

“My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy layers complex computerised instrumentation over Yeezy’s effortless flow, moving from the heavy hip-hop of Power and Monster all the way to the poppy Michael Jackson tribute, All Of The Lights.
Beyoncé, Jay-Z and others guest on several tracks. They don’t drop by just to deliver a verse or chorus; they are as integral to the tracks as Kanye himself.”

Albums by Arcade Fire, LCD Soundsystem, Drake and Big Boi also made the annual list. Cee-Lo Green’s F*** You was named Time’s top song of 2010.
