Watch: Kanye West’s “All of the Lights” Video Falls Short

Kanye West – “All of the Lights” video

The video for Kanye West‘s “All of the Lights,” directed by Hype Williams, looks like several totally unrelated concepts that never really do tie together for the viewer. However each concept is individually very strong especially with the use of beautiful erratic typography and effects.

While the song, one of my favorite’s from My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, boasts vocals from Fergie, Charlie Wilson, John Legend, Tony Williams, Alicia Keys, La Roux, The Dream, Ryan Leslie, Alvin Fields and Ken Lewis — only Rihanna and KiD CuDi appear in the video.

Certainly not as impressive as Kanye and Hype’s last project, “Runaway,” and fails to do “All of the Lights” justice. Watch below.
