"Wow", is all I can really say. Upon viewing snippets of this film, I was really excited to see what Ye had cooked up. The visuals revealed in the small clips really drew me in leaving me anxious to see what the finished product would translate into. Upon initially watching the full piece of work, I was floored by the landscape that Kanye put down. The colors used were striking. The phoenix costume was outstanding. I admit to having to watching it a second time to really appreciate the entire work. Don't get it twisted. This isn't Thriller. This is a unique musical and visual experience completely different from anything hip hop has ever produced. Its weird. Its beautiful. Its audibly pleasing. Its another moment for Mr. West.

So, here at Ends on Music, I'm all about expansion into many genres of music. Up until now, I've only posted on hip hop and R&B music since this is the music that is closest to my heart. Don't be fooled though. I dabble in other types of music and I'm always looking to learn more about a band from any leg of music. Watching Jimmy Fallon last week, this band blew me away with this performance. The arrangement blew me away, especially the duel drummers. The band's called Everest and the song is "Let Go". This may require a late pass, but better late than never is what they say.
