Kanye: Really Ready for Graduation?

kanyewest.jpgI’ve been listening for the past day or so to “Graduation,” the new CD by Kanye West — it becomes officially available next Tuesday but can be downloaded by anyone with a reasonably computer-savvy 12-year-old in the house. I’ve been bopping along to the Daft Punkish first single, “Stronger,” and nodding my head in admiration for West’s lyrics.

On balance, though, I have to agree with Jon Parelesreview of the CD in the New York Times, especially the remark that “on ‘Graduation,’ for the first time, Mr. West can’t see beyond his own fame.”
