Here are four albums dropping in 2011 that any and all music enthusiasts should invest in.

Recently, we expressed our excitement over Kanye West’s upcoming album, Good Ass Job. Now, the video for the new song “Power” is out, and it’s a rather short, artsy and, well, powerful affair. Wearing what appears to be the Egyptian-influenced jewelry he designed, Kanye stands out like a Greek God against a backdrop of stormy sky and pillars of columns. Mythical, horned creatures, lots of draping Grecian garb and what appears to be an angel surround him as the song seems to blast from an unseen stereo. It’s like a gothic Botticelli painting come to life. Enjoy it after the jump.

We don’t think we were the only ones perplexed by Kanye’s last album, the auto-tuned departure 808s and Heartbreak. So it’s nice to hear news that he’s returning to form with his next effort, Good Ass Job, expected this fall. Now, some videos are drifting about the Internets of Kanye performing in a rather strange venue—the Facebook office, that is. Regardless, the three songs dropped, even without a back beat or any accompaniment, are making us pretty excited. Check out the videos after the jump, as well as Kanye’s blog-released statement in regards to the reception, and let us know if you think this album will help Kanye weather the post Taylor Swift storm.
