Album Review

Kanye West / Ye

Kanye West / Ye

2年ぶりとなるKanye Westの7作目。本人による5週連続Produce作EPリリースの一つでもある。7曲かつ短期間で作ったそうだが、クオリティはかなり高い。
アートワークに書かれている”I hate being Bi-Polar, it’s awesome”のBi-Polarとは本人罹患中の躁鬱病のことらしく、そんな状況も曲にしている。
他には仲間や家族への愛もテーマにしており、Lyricのほうは相変わらず自分大好きなKanyeらしい。逆にTrackのほうは、特に後半、初期の作品に戻ったような親しみやすさや感じられるメロディアス曲が続いている。Gospelへの憧憬も見え隠れしている。
