(KeyArena) Thanks to my decade-spanning appreciation of Bob Dylan, Prince, and Morrissey, my ability to ignore the stupid mouth-droppings of my most beloved artists in order to preserve my appreciation of their art is fully operational, which means my humongous love for Kanye West remains unscathed. The few times my pro-Kanye feelings have been jeopardized (most recently, the BBC interview and Kimmelgate), a return to what made me care in the first place clears things up, because Kanye West has made nothing but amazing music for his entire career. The ground covered from The College Dropout to Yeezus is composed of almost nothing but peaks; no one comes close to his talent, ambition, and—most amazing of all, considering the frantic pace of his output—consistency. Live, he's in a class of his own, having figured out how to make hiphop live onstage like no one else before him on the Late Registration tour and improving his game with every outing. Expect dazzling theatrics, precise arrangements, unhinged mouthscreeds, and an awesome opening set from Kendrick Lamar, who, as Bumbershoot proved, knows how to knock out a crowd at KeyArena.
