iTunes Review

Though beset by label delays and Twitter squabbles, no amount of innuendo could stymie the vividly original debut by Harlem pop iconoclast Azealia Banks. The snaking electro-house breakout "212" remains essential listening, flanked by a kaleidoscopic mélange of Latin, funk, trap, and hip-hop: forget naming styles, they're all here. Rapping and singing with equal aplomb, Banks anchors the spooky U.K. garage of "Desperado" as ably as she does the industrial skronk of "Yung Rapunxel" (the conflation of "rap" and "punk" there is no accident). The Ariel Pink collaboration "Nude Beach A-Go-Go," with its echoes of Gidget and '50s pop, is positively flummoxing in the best way.

Best album ever

My weave was snatched

The Queen is Here

After 2 years of false hopes, dropped singles, messy Twitter beefs, and label drama, it seemed like the incredible genius showed in the initial releases by miss AB were only going to be a flash in the pan. But here we are. Saying this is the most daringly creative and multifaceted rap record I've heard in my life can't even begin to scratch the surface of the island-jazz-90s house infused perfection that continually unwraps itself in spiraling layers of madness and beauty. In fact, nothing can be said about this that captures the incredible joy listening to this album is from start to finish. So grab some good headphones, find a comfortable place to sit, and prepare to have your mind sonically blown.

BEST ALBUM OF 2014

The wait was worth it! This is such an amazing album, congratulations Azealia!!!
