    One thought on “Through the Wire: Lyrics and Illuminations”

    1. This is an awesome book for Kanye fans. It lists the lyrics from the "Through The Wire" album and gives the reader a commentary on how Kanye came up with the lyrics for the song(NOTE: Homecoming is about Chicago, not a girl). I read this book by first reading the commentary and listening to the song as I followed the lyrics, and I got a lot out of it. If you wanna gain insight into Kanye West and his music, definitely pick this up

    2. My lil brother gave this to me for Christmas. I liked the art a lot, but I wish there was even more information about Kanye's inspiration. I also miss College Dropout/Graduation/Late Registration Kanye. COME BACK KANYE.

    3. This book is a collection of about twelve Yeezy songs, each one prefaced by some notes about it, basically an abbreviated diary entry about the song. And the illustrations are amazing. A must for any real Ye fan. So glad it's part of my collection now! :D

    4. "We all self-conscious I'm just the first to admit it" ("All Falls Down," 27)To understand Kanye West, look to his music.* That is the message of this book, a sort of memoir through the lens of twelve of his songs' lyrics. Though West's vision has inspired him to build numerous bridges between his music and the world of high art, this is not his best effort. (His best effort to this end would be his short film Runaway.)In this book, each song's lyrics are given a total of six pages and paired wi [...]

    5. An interesting read. Fascinating to read the lyrics, along with their interpretation and influence.

    6. Being able to read the lyrics and the meaning behind them made me appreciate The College Dropout CD more than I did. Good read.
