A Superbowl Half Time Show You Wish Would Just End Already
April 22, 2019
OK, no doubt the woman is a genius and one of the most talented artists of the current zeitgeist but, Houston we have a problem. Without the video accompanying the show you are left with a homecoming show that makes you actually want to go home. If your idea of quality soul, R&B or hip hop is a grating high school marching band with enough treble that entirely erases all the other instrumental contributions to the record maybe this record is for you. Lemonade was genius, however the songs here are presented in cheesy brass band / New Orleans funeral march fashion. Homecoming- I get it, but listening to the whole thing is an exhausting slog on the ears. The one to watch is Solange, her record was very special. It is cerebral, different and produced just as well as Kanye's best earlier work. Watch the movie, you don't need this record and neither do your neighbours or for that matter any canines that might have the misfortune to be subjected to this noise.
