BEST OF 2013: Kevin's Picks

10. Kanye West - Yeezus

The most undeniably beautiful mess of an album to come along in ages, Yeezus, by all rights, shouldn’t be mentioned anywhere near the words “Best of 2013.” Yet here we are and here it is. Anticipation was high, the hype even higher, for what the Chicago artist/producer would deliver as a follow up to 2011’s glorious My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy and what we got was a confusing, aggressive, and aggressively risk-taking collection of songs that play more like a slo-mo, hi-fi train wreck than a work of staggering genius.
