UConn journalist and Daily Campus alumni, Brett Steinberg, released his first album as a solo artist on Oct. 29 “It Comes in Waves & When It’s Here I’ll Know,” a record that is an exploration of his life through the past two years.
Kanye’s ninth studio album, the long-delayed “JESUS IS KING” is West’s rumination on his newly renewed Christianity, which is delivered in a brief 27-minute package of 11 songs, both a surprise in its brevity (this is the product of over a year of work?) and not a surprise at all (Kanye’s previous two albums were both less than a half hour.)
The artist defines it as “a dizzying kaleidoscope of neurosis as an entertainment journalist is left in solitude to tend to her movie star girlfriend’s country home.” It’s “BURN PYGMALION!!! A Better Guide to Romance,” and it’s one of the best pop albums of the year, all thanks to its quirky yet sentimental performer, “The Scary Jokes,” one of the best up-and-coming pop artists out there.
The John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr seen walking across the street on the album were not the same musicians that burst onto the scene in 1963 with their first album. To truly understand what makes “Abbey Road” such a significant album for The Beatles, one must look at the band’s trajectory leading up to that point.
