Carmelo Anthony reviews The Life Of Pablo: ‘It’s apartment music’

Sunday February 21st, 2016

Carmelo Anthony delivered perhaps the most unique take on Kanye West’s new album, The Life of Pablo, calling it “apartment music.”

After the Knicks’ 103–95 win over the Timberwolves, Melo had ‘Ultralight Beam’ playing at his locker as reporters filed in the room. He silenced the music, then gave a one-sentence review of the album.

“I like it. It’s different,” Anthony said, according to The Wall Street Journal’s Chris Herring. “It’s apartment music.”

Now, it’s not entirely clear what “apartment music” is supposed to mean, but it sounds about right. Some songs match up perfectly with apartment activities.

• Ultralight Beam – Getting ready for bed
• Father Stretch My Hands Pt. 1 – Waking up
Pt. 2 – Sweeping
Famous – Cooking
Highlights – Folding laundry
Waves – Doing dishes
• No More Parties in LA – Having friends over
30 Hours – Working

The Knicks and Kanye West seem to go hand-in-hand.
