Wow. That's the first word that comes to mind in reference to this album. Kid Cudi definitely exceeded my expectations. I thought it'd be good, but not this good.
I admittedly was not open to listening to it initially. Why? Haha! If you know me then you know full well that I can hold a grudge...FOREVER! I had personal beef with Cudi for a while. Click here to find out why.
I kind of like the fact that I listened to this album with a bias. It was almost like he indirectly told me, "I'm going to make you like me." He succeeded. In his debut LP, Scott stays true to himself with experimental sounds and spacey lyrics that make for a ridiculously great compilation of music. One of my favorite things is that he has Common doing Morgan Freeman-esque narration of his journey.
I would post a link, but the last time I did that blogger.com shut me down temporarily. Haha! So, I'll try say...find a copy wherever you can. It's definitely worth purchasing though, in case you're not into piracy like I am.
