    question: Is "Blood on the Leaves" the most musically/emotionally compelling song on the album in spite of the dissonance of the "Strange Fruit" sample or precisely because of that sample?

    early returns on Yeezus consistently mention how beautiful "Blood on the Leaves" sounds but how juxtaposing the lynching message of "Strange Fruit" with a song about groupie alimony is really fucking confusing. still, the most concrete musical memory i have formed of Yeezus so far is Nina cooing "breeeeeeze" and "bloood on the leavveeeess" with Kanye's autotuned wailing and that soft, beautiful piano. how does a song feel so thoroughly emotionally appropriate yet intellectually garbled? i guess that is the beauty of an "id-monster" of an album like Yeezus.

    I can't bring myself to read about this album online any longer.  I'm just happy songs like "Black Skinhead", "I'm In It" and "Blood on the Leaves" exist.  I'm so happy Yeezus exists and that Kanye West made it.

    Lou Reed wrote:Still, I have never thought of music as a challenge — you always figure, the audience is at least as smart as you are. You do this because you like it, you think what you're making is beautiful. And if you think it's beautiful, maybe they'll think it's beautiful. When I did Metal Machine Music, New York Times critic John Rockwell said, "This is really challenging." I never thought of it like that. I thought of it like, "Wow, if you like guitars, this is pure guitar, from beginning to end, in all its variations. And you're not stuck to one beat." That's what I thought. Not, "I'm going to challenge you to listen to something I made." I don't think West means that for a second, either. You make stuff because it's what you do and you love it.

    Lou Reed understands Yeezy at a deeper level than David Drake.
