What the critics thought:

"Yeezus is the darkest, most extreme music Kanye has ever cooked up, an extravagantly abrasive album full of grinding electro, pummeling minimalist hip-hop, drone-y wooz and industrial gear-grind. Every mad genius has to make a record like this at least once in his career - at its nastiest, his makes Kid A or In Utero or Trans all look like Bruno Mars."
- Rolling Stone

"Those looking for vintage soul sounds or even full-on raps from start to finish will be thrown several curves here. It’s an album with numerous emotional layers as well."
- Billboard.com

"This album has the potential to mess with your whole year."
- Entertainment Weekly

"'Harder, better, faster, stronger': It was years ago that West first took to that mantra, but it’s on the visceral, unrelenting Yeezus that he fully internalises it."
 - The A.V. Club

"Yeezus is the sound of a man just doing his job properly."
- The Guardian

"No one is expecting Mr. West to turn into a latter-day Public Enemy, making political statements as a full-time mission. He, and we, are rightly fascinated by the limelight, by the culture of consumption and by Mr. West’s endlessly contradictory reactions to all that attention. But now that he’s transfigured his music, his words await an upgrade to match."
- The New York Times
