From Love Lockdown to Bound 2

Over the span from 2008 – 2013 Kanye’s music has changed a lot. Love Lockdown represents a time when he was obviously getting over a breakup.  ” I can’t keep myself and keep you too”.  The tone is somber.  Percussion is loud but drops out at times to focus on the lyrics and the singing.

Bound 2 is much brighter of a song. Uncle Charlie and the Ponderosa twins plus one give Bound 2 a more soulful vibe. I would bet this is probably one of people’s favorite song on the Yeezus album. While some of his songs may have been pushing boundaries it was if he put Bound 2 at the end just to prove that he could still do this.  A more easily digestible hit.
