Kanye West released his seventh solo album, The Life Of Pablo, to universal critical acclaim. The NewYork Times, on its front page, declared: “With flux embedded in its DNA, “Pablo” is crisply alive, likewater that’s still boiling even though the flame is off. Pay close attention to the multiple iterations and youhear an artist at work…It’s everything bared — process as art.” Rolling Stone raved: “a complex,conflicted masterpiece.” “His devotion to the craft of album-making remains his greatest talent,” Pitchforkmused. “Albums are his legacy…His ability to package hundreds of stray threads into a whole that feelsnot just thrilling, but inevitable - at this, he is better than everyone.” And USA Today simply asked: “Is Kanye West the greatest artist of the 21st century?”
