"It works because it's beautiful," he writes in a long, enthusiastic review of Kanye West's polarizing album. "You either like it or you don't." As for the lyrics, they "seem like the same old b.s.," though Reed thinks it's "just ridiculous that people are getting upset about 'Put my fist in her like a civil rights sign? C'mon, he's just having fun." Then there is this line: "He could kill Taylor Swift and it" — meaning public approval — "would all be over." Not wrong, probably.
