Good to jam b/c: Bon Iver is in it
So based on the introduction of this post, one may think that I am a biased Bon Iver fan, and that I am willing to admit, but it doesn't take away from the extreme jammableness that comes from this song. I am also willing to admit that I am a little upset that someone as huge as Kanye stole a little bit of Bon Iver's light by remaking Iver's original song "Woods," which you can listen to here, into "Lost in the World," which is featured on West's new album "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy." Kanye's new album, though should be noted for its full-on 34 minute long music video, that's available to watch here because it very well could be a catalyst for a progressive change towards the music video world. I found the video very entertaining to watch, but found it odd that one of the main scenes in the video portrayed a large gathering of african americans eating at a table being served by a group of whites.. I don't know though, maybe it was some artsy metaphor for something I didn't grasp, but it seemed to be closely symbolizing a regressive statement for such a wide audience. But what can you do? Maybe he thinks if you jump a few steps forward for the music video industry, maybe you have to take a few back for progression made on equality. Debatable, Kanye.
On the other hand, if you're a Bon Iver fan, you should still check out Kanye's new album because you are able to hear some random bits from him included in the background sounds and pretty heavily in the song, "Monster."
