You know what the world really needs? Another white dude dismissing Kanye West's ouvre out of hand and moaning about how it isn't "proper music".

If the shameful Glastonbury petitions weren't enough, now we have Blur's Graham Coxon adding to such thoughtful critiques as "ultimate dickhead" and "he's a pants".

"He's a fucking idiot, isn't he?" Coxon told The Guardian. "Does he even make his own albums?" (Yes, is the answer).

"All I hear is a loop starting, some bloke starts to sing or rap, and the loop finishes. There's no shape to this stuff. And the lyrics just seem to be idiotic."

I mean, you could say the same about Graham Coxon music, it's just a jangly riff starting, some bloking singing about being bored, and then the jangly riff finishes.

As for lyrics, this side-by-side comparison is pretty telling:

Kanye West has released seven platinum-selling albums to date, all pretty innovative and each very different to the last.
