EDITORS’ NOTES

The appropriately titled My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy comes from a heavily scrutinized time in Kanye West’s career. After a series of canceled tour dates and memorable award show appearances, West went into a self-imposed exile from all media and created a masterful artistic response. Lead singles “Power” and “All of the Lights” were reported to have five thousand hours of work put into them, each projecting larger-than-life sounds with intricacy that can be heard down to each snare hit. Even with high-profile contributors Nicki Minaj (“Monster”), Elton John (“All of the Lights”), JAY Z (“So Appalled”, “Monster”), RZA (“Dark Fantasy”, “So Appalled”), and Bon Iver (“Lost in the World”), Kanye is clearly the orchestrator of this extravagant musical exhibition.
