The Beat: Kanye West's "All of the Lights"

Kanye West recently claimed that his work will be his saving grace. Well, the man certainly knew what he was talking about. His new album "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy" has been getting perfect reviews all over the interwebs (most notably, here, here and here) and the praise just keeps on coming. Why not? With tracks like his latest release called "All of the Lights", this comeback/love-me-for-my-music LP promises to be one for the ages.

Featuring an all-star team that includes personal favorite Kid Cudi, Rihanna, Fergie, John Legend, Alicia Keys, The Dream, Ryan Leslie, Tony Williams, Charlie Wilson, La Roux's Elly Jackson, and (get this) Elton John, the track is a non-stop audible attack that delights with sick beats and a blending of talents that can only be led by an ego as big as West. If you should know, Sir Elton's gangsta, yo. Song of the year? Hmm, verdict's pending, but it sure sounds like it to me.
