March 6, 2015 on David Crosby On Kanye West: “He’s An Idiot And A Poser”
I've heard fair criticisms on all 3 of those artists, none of which contained an argument based in how many instruments one of them could play or how many people were working on their music. Evaluating all genres of music with the rock criteria check list is problematic because it leads to people thinking some solo acoustic David Crosby track (just using him as an example because he's the topic of the article) is more "musical" and "real" than anything from a team project of a different genre, like a Massive Attack album. The reason the "rockist" term seems so loaded and angry, is because its a very real thing that needs to be combated. No artist or piece of work should be immune to criticism- however, as someone who respects music, and the craft behind how my some of my favorite albums are made, calling out viewpoints which are grounded in ignorant assumptions like "ReAl InStRuMeNtS >>>>> KoMputeRs anD EleCtrEDMica" is just something I have to do. Because hearing that same bullshit recycled over and over again is getting old

well, spike. the fact that you only enjoy the songs Kanye did with Jon Brion and dislike or find the rest of the work on his 6 other albums mediocre, i cant speak on that. But what I can say is that I think questioning the validity of the praise of his music at this point in his career isn't something you can just give a simple "we'll let history decide". I think that's a cop out. He's been at it for 15 years. Say what you will about his newer records (I happen to think it's his best stuff yet, but thats not the point), a decade has passed since The College Dropout, and it's still considered a landmark album. Exactly how much time needs to pass before you accept he's made a huge impact, if not one of the biggest in history, on hip hop and music in general? Should we look back in 2035 just to verify that Kanye's success in 2000-2015 was a real thing? I don't think we'll have to. On why his defenders are so "vigilant"... i feel fans of his that respect what he does feel a need to counteract the obnoxious amount of hate thrown his way. obviously people that don't like the guy feel like he deserves it, and you're probably one of him, but i think he's largely misunderstood and means well at the end of the day.. and did i mention his music is fucking awesome?

listen to the non-radio CDQ version... if you don't think the track is better than the live performance then I don't know what to tell you... Because I think it's much better

Kind of just sounds like Ye's voice to me, but i could see it being an amalgam of him and vernon's.

Wolves is really awesome. Not a 3-star track, to my ears at least... Only One and FourFiveSeconds on the other hand? Yeah those are pretty mediocre. Don't understand the lukewarm feedback Wolves has gotten, though

I'm proving your point by being unamused at your cock-sucking jokes? I'll agree to disagree on that one. Your t-swift joke sucked too, by the way.

and the 10 for Twisted Fantasy was unwarranted because.... you think it's absurd that any contemporary album should deserve a perfect score upon it's initial review? What's a more fitting record to receive a 10.0, if not Twisted Fantasy? (not a rhetorical question.. would like to hear your opinion)
