Ehhh... I'm not sure I prefer it to MNIMN either but I definitely think it's more consistent. My Name had some seriously waning moments stuffed into its second half, but the production being all-Kanye made it a strong companion piece to Yeezus, with a similar kind of mission statement.

I think Darkest Before Dawn is more than just a prelude to his "real" album. I mean, it's a real album. I actually think it's a bit stupid of him to call it "the prequel" or to slap the "King Push" title on it. That's just confusing. I mean, this album is the "prequel" to a song from 2013 and an April 2016 album (maybe)?

It's definitely an album. It's been labored over and heavily produced, and a lot of thought has gone in to its presentation.

But I didn't realize until just recently that he was planning to drop another album so soon. I figured the whole King Push thing would fizzle, like so many planned sequential album series do. But, apparently, fucker's releasing a whole new joint in April. I'll believe it when I see it. For now, Darkest Before Dawn is definitely capable of standing on its own.
