I loved Kanye West’s early albums, particularly ‘The College Dropout’ (2004) and ‘Late Registration’ (2005). He has just released his ninth album, ‘Jesus Is King’ which he says is ‘an expression of the gospel’. Well, the Trump-supporting member of the Kardashian clan has surpassed himself in terms of how low he has sunk with this album. I have listened to it so that you don’t have to. It is an awful, almost dictatorial view as to how we should live from a demented, probably delusional, Christian Fundamentalist nut job. If I believed that Kanye was joking then even the irony in this release would be hard to find. But I think he is serious. This makes Bob Dylan’s Christian output look almost satanic. It is truly a terrible, terrible album. Definitely the worst of 2019 for me! The singing of the gospel choir is one very small plus point. If you have listened to it what is your opinion?
