Lou Reed Gives A Thumbs Up To Kanye West's Yeezus

Lou Reed reviewed Kanye West's latest album, Yeezus, saying he is surprised that he likes it.

Reed, whose review appears in The Talkhouse, called West's album "majestic and inspiring," explaining:

"There are moments of supreme beauty and greatness on this record, and then some of it is the same old s---. But the guy really, really, really is talented. He's really trying to raise the bar. No one's near doing what he's doing, it's not even on the same planet."

Reed added that, while he found the lyrics to be the weakest part of the album, he was impressed by its sonic range:

"Kanye stays unmoved while this mountain of sound grows around him. Such an enormous amount of work went into making this album. Each track is like making a movie."
