iTunes Editors’ Notes
Like a continuing counterpart to 2011’s Watch the Throne, 2012’s Good Music Cruel Summer finds Kanye West hosting a compilation party for a select group of guests from his G.O.O.D. Music roster. “To the World” kicks off with an orchestra of Auto-Tuned vocals as West, R. Kelly, and Teyana Taylor eschew sticking it to the man for a R&B/hip-hop hybrid that sticks it to the entire globe. The following “Clique” starts off mellower, with Jay-Z and Big Sean realizing that a crew or posse is nothing but a clique—and yet theirs is still the best. This is cleverly rhymed over menacing beats and a lurking bass line, with sampled cult chants building an ominous mantra. “Mercy.1” gets more ruthless with Pusha T & 2 Chainz, creating a deeply downtuned vocal beast that wants to steal your girlfriend and make her pay for a grape drink and pineapple-coconut bluntwrap. Ghostface Killah likens himself to a deity in “New God Flow.1” before the closing “Don’t Like.1” gives Chicago gang shootings their very own soundtrack.
This is one of the best hip-hop albums ever released. This could potentially challenge for album of the year! Definitely not a disappointment.
