What is Kanye West's best album? Show more Show less

Kanye West is one of the most critically-acclaimed and best-selling hip-hop artists in history. However, unlike Nas or N.W.A., fans rarely agree on West's best album, with almost all of his works - spanning an array of styles - being a popular choice.

Yeezus Show more Show less

Kanye West's most jarring album for most listeners, both sonically and lyrically, is his best work.

Yeezus was Kanye's boldest career move commercially

For all of his other albums, West likely made an effort to sound accessible in order to make a profit. However, with Yeezus, he opted to forgo making a simple album in order to make something that was less likely to sell copies. Yeezus was therefore the most purely artistic work of Kanye's career.
