Oh Kanye, my dude. I love how sad you are sometimes. I mean, I don't want him to be sad, but his sad albums are always my favorites.
My favorite part about this one is that it's not even super sad right off the bat. The album starts out strong, but as things go one througout the rest of it you get this really strong feeling of just beign a little low.
By the time we reach Hell Of A Life we've gone through a couple mood swings that bring us to this plod of a song. Not like, plod in a bad way, but in the way that gives you the feeling of "this is happening and that's all you get." You know that feeling when you're in a bit of a dark place and when things happen it's just like Yep, this is a thing."? That's this song.
The song starts with what sounds like Kanye just being all "I'm gonna marry a porn star" and playing out why he'd have a great time with it. As the song goes on however it shows the same feeling as most of the others. He goes through his whole fantasy of what would happen, but then when it came down to the end it crashes back down toward reality.
All the songs manage to follow a great flow of introducing an idea, taking away, then crashing back to earth. Take a listen, it's a really good album.
