It seems to be a common temptation for any lyricist, when they’ve come up with a real zinger of a line and incorporated the line into the music, to immediately repeat it, just in case we didn’t quite catch their cleverness the first time. Once in a great while a lyricist can get away with this. Usually it falls flat. And that’s my only complaint about Kanye West’s newest album, Yeezus, and the otherwise rather stimulating song, New Slaves. That startlingly candid line around the middle of the song? I got it. I didn’t need to be told twice.
Suggested Use: Late night driving across the state of Texas (or any state for that matter). What dreams a driver spinning this disc of otherworldly beats could stir within their sleeping passengers ranged throughout the vehicle. And if a passenger should awake in terror at the sounds emanating from their surroundings, a little lip-syncing in the rear view mirror from the driver should be more than enough to send them back to sleep, grinning.
