Monster is a lot to take in at once. Jam packed with an indie-folk singer and four rappers competing for your attention; it can come off as a little unfocused. It isn’t a bad track. West has been making beats for more than a decade and his production is ever improving. The problem is that Kanye is his own stiffest competition and Monster doesn’t rank among his best. It’s a great beat, and it’s cool to see Kanye reach outside of the box and get Bon Iver on a track.

Monster works out great as a mixtape banger to satisfy the blogosphere while the rest of us wait on Kanye to release his new album, as well as his confirmed EP with Jay-Z.
