The Return Of Mr West

Posted on June 25, 2010


Granted this is far from the exclusive,breaking news that many will attribute to theirblog rolls. In fact it has been several weeks since the debut single (‘Power’) from Kanye West’s forthcoming album leaked onto web and subsequently succumbed to the brutality of file sharing. However last week following its ‘unofficial’ release, the chauvinist himself released the polished version for the prying ears of the public hoping to stir further hype and publicity ahead of his new album entitled ‘Good Ass Job’, which is expected to be released at the end of the Summer.

The single itself showcases Mr West at his best, returning to the innovative format in which samples from the most unlikely sources provide the main structure for the record. In ‘Power’ West turns to a prog-rock influence and an unlikely collaboration with King Crimson, using several samples from one of the ancient rockers more recent anthems, ‘21st Century Schizoid Man.’

So its business as usual for Kanye West following a below par album ‘808 & Heartbreak’ that heavily over-used the assistance of the auto-tune device and based upon the impression of this new single, it’s a welcome return from the lavish, extrovert rap icon, a good ass job indeed.
