Kanye West Graduates
Like the writer who penned this review for the Village Voice, I'm still trying to make up my mind about Kanye West's latest album, Graduation. There are times when I love the album, and then there are times when I hesitate to compliment it because I'm not sure what West is trying to say to his audience. With any other musician, that lack of artistic clarity would be a flaw, but with Kanye, the genius of his work usually lies within the ambiguities of his albums. Give me a few more days to work it out. I'm getting closer to cracking the code every time I take a ride in my car.
