After issuing a perfect “5 Mic” rating through The Source, contributor Andreas Hale spoke to SOHH about his review.
“Taking a step back, when I was reviewing the album, to me, it was all about the realism, music, vibe and feel of the album. For Kanye, in the review, I basically said he took all of the elements from all the albums he has done in the past and they all came to fruition. They all were put on steroids for My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. There were elements of 808’s & Heartbreak, there were elements of Late Registration, there were elements of College Dropout. It seemed like, sonically, he took all of those elements, put them together and then on top of that, the guests were perfect. Especially with “Devin in a New Dress.” The first time I heard it without Rick Ross, I thought it was dope when it leaked. But when you hear it on the album, the guitars come in and the keys hit, and then even Ross’ verse, it’s just a really great song. It’s one thing artists don’t do today, which is make really great songs.” (Guest Star)
