    Kind of interesting here. You spent a lot of time going through nearly every track on an album that you didn’t enjoy. And I can see why you would want to describe and almost itemize the things you found disagreeable to bolster your opinion. But truthfully it feels like you’ve been let down here and you made no mention of that, which in a way would tarnish the objectivity you have to maintain when you do album reviews. Just merely a reflection or feedback. By the way, this site has nearly supplanted Facebook as far as the amount of time I’m spending on the computer. That’s a compliment. Keep doing your thing Anthony.

    When I first heard Kid CuDi a few years back, I was really impressed with his ability to make a catchy pop song with good guitar hooks, and a nice catchy chorus about everything that is sweet and sad at any given party. Some of his tracks were sick. Some…. eh. I chalked that up to the fact that he was still pretty new on the scene with a very limited catalog of any underground anything.
    The more material he releases, the more I feel his sudden catapult to stardom may be his biggest weakness. He hasn’t had a ton of time to develop as an artist. Now he has a major label contract. That seems a little suffocating. And it seems to be a story I have heard far to often. Young artist blows up, makes it big, doesn’t know what to do next. With each release, the disappointment grows. Just goes to show, you can’t fake passion. And just because you make it big it don’t mean you got it.
    I give CuDi 2 years. But what the fuck do I know. I said the same thing about the Yeah Yeah Yeahs in 2003

    its funny listening to kid cudi’s interview from complex stating the development of each song, the sound he was going for, etc. and this guys viewpoint. i think this guy is disappointed kid cudi made a rock album similar to his own style, which is a fusion of other genres and sounds, instead of a traditional rock album. i understand what this guy is saying but i don’t think that was the intent of the album. CUDI will never get proper respect, he fuses different genres of music together, and every critic is mad because his music doesn’t fit all the criteria for the category for which they are judging his music on, even though every song on the album is pretty damn good.
