Yeezus in Living Color

I'm going to do 4 emotions based on 4 songs from my favorite album of 2013, Yeezus. Will be posting a mind map soon & the emotions I choose based on the tracks. 

There is a progression throughout the album. And I think these 4 songs demonstrate that progression. Plus, these tracks are my favorites. 

Black Skinhead - Confidence

I Am A God - Terror

Blood on the Leaves - Betrayal

Guilt Trip - Grief

Below are some really basic sketches using Illustrator to start getting over the mental block of putting some forms together.

    

Below are the color palettes I've put together. Would love some feedback on these.

Here are the final 4. Yeezus is such a complicated album, which made it really difficult to nail down form, especially since I'm not that skilled yet in creating detailed scenes in Illustrator. However, I do love more abstract design (a la Paul Rand & others) so I played around with shapes. 

I felt like triangles really suited the sound of the album overall. The sound is so intense in this album, but there are some pretty deep, emotional themes going on. These 4 boards may look really busy initially, but the album sounds that way upon 1st or 2nd listen. But after you sit with it for awhile, the album really opens up. I'm trying to go for that here. Whether it's successfull or not....well, I'll let you decide. 

Would love to have feedback on this. What do you like? What don't you like?

Thanks

Black Skinhead - Confidence

I Am A God - Terror

Blood On The Leaves - Betrayal

Guilt Trip - Grief
