Before we get into it, I want to point out that this is a Kanye-free zone. How the incessant bloviating clatter that makes up Yeezus has caused critics to fall all over themselves to declare it the best musical release of 2013 makes it clear that my fellow scribes once again tend to show off their sheeple-like tendencies.
