Talk about Green Eyes Part II. I LOVE this song; the way it switches tempos (even moreso than Green Eyes it seems), the despair you can hear in her voice in certain parts. Love it.
The new album as a whole flows nicely, but I have only extracted 2 tracks (this and Window Seat) that I can listen to over and over and have made it to the coveted IPOD playlist. I actually like more songs from New Amerykah Part I, which many people just plain didn’t like.
Regarding the Window Seat video, it seems most people are in 1 of 2 camps. Camp A is ass, booty, butt, hindparts, ZOMG she showed her nether regions in public, PLEASE think of the children, ho-shit, Hottentot Venus, etc. Camp B is duuuude they’re totally missing the message, she’s so deep and ankhy (I read that somewhere and died), she is such a game-changer, so original, etc. The irony is people from both groups (the extreme ones, that is) are illustrating her explanation of Groupthink.
I’ll just say for now I am in Camp C which takes a somewhat more cynical view of the whole concept. Well actually there is Camp C-1 (cynical view, not a fan) and Camp C-2 (cynical view, but still a fan). I’m in C-2.
