The main reason you will like this album is its lack of need to be put into a thematic box to be relatable. It’s not strictly stoner Hip-Hop or emo Hip-Hop. The lyrics combined with the beats make for a project that stands apart from anything that’s been released in recent memory. Sonically, Kid Cudi has created a blend of The Doors and Kanye’s full orchestra arrangements, with some crushed barbiturates sprinkled on top. Add to that the fact that Kid Cudi portrays himself as a socially awkward pariah in the industry and boom, you have the perfect fodder for kids around the world who feel like no one else will be their friend but Scott Mescudi. See if you want to be his friend with the rest of the review and a Spotify stream after the jump
