Most accurate description of Yeezus yet imo

http://www.esquire.com/blogs/culture/kanye-west-yeezus?src=rss

TL;DR
Like its maker, Yeezus is a messy, complicated creature, but if there's one essential theme to the album, it's that we're living in what pop culture promised us was supposed to be a utopian future, but it's just as rotten as the past. Where a black man can become rich and famous and still be hated for the color of his skin. Where prisons are not only still around, but have been transformed into modes of profit by relentlessly amoral capitalists. Where relationships unspool on television in quasi-real time. It's a world propped up by technology that we think of as infallible, when it's just as likely to break down as a human is.
