Jun 11, 2018For the most part in fact, the album’s production is curated with Cudi in mind, a sonic bag of treats for those who vibe to the gloomy, celestial exploration of his early material as well as the rap rock stylings he has demonstrated since. ... Whereas the beats on ye sounded rushed and underdeveloped, the beats on KSG have some meat on ’em, crafting a sonic mood board that evokes thoughts of psilocybin mushroom trips, spiritual healing and yes, ghosts.
Jun 14, 2018A collaboration that alternates from alienation and sadness to melodic tenderness, punkish rap bravado, and triumph in 23 minutes. It’s both embarrassing and gripping: never boring and often euphoric. ... It makes for a perfect version of a Kid Cudi album, with Cudi taking center stage under the guiding hand of Kanye’s stellar production.
Jun 11, 2018The songs are the most intriguing ones to emerge from this Wyoming project thus far. ... A lot of the energy that "ye" seemed to be gasping for fills the lungs of this project, and it’s humbling to consider how much this material might have enlivened West’s own album.

The album, fully produced by Kanye West, strikes withKids See Ghosts can be considered one of the best collaborative efforts In Hip-Hop.
The album, fully produced by Kanye West, strikes with it's eerie and dark samples, as well as rough and gritty melodies. Kid Cudis Voice compliments the beats perfectly, and Kanye's few parts scattered over the Album contain some of of his best lyrics.
They both talk about mental Health and their way to recovery and happiness, climaxing in the Outro "Cudi Montage", which can be considered a Track about Kanye's and Cudi's reunion after their split back a few years ago.
Both Artists perform some of their best craft yet, with Kid Cudi nearly returning to MOTM levels, and Kanye being as strong as ever, with quality production and good vocals. The album gives an in-depth look into mental states of two of the most beloved rappers/singers, which is also reflected in the sound of the beats. If Kanye West's "ye" Is what Heaven sounds like, then Kids see Ghost is the exact, equally good, opposite.… Expand

It really brings out the best in both Kanye and espcially Cudi. I'm willing to bet that the reason "ye" was a bit underwelming was that Kanye was saving his best efforts for this project. This album features some of Kanye's best verses lyrically, some of Cudi's best vocals and the best overall sound quality I've heard from either artist in years. Every song on this album brings a unique vibe to the table, something that neither of Kanye's previous two projects managed to pull off succesfully. The samples are amazing, the production is amazing, the lyrics and vocals are amazing. Overall this album is incredible. Kanye really reminds us that he's still capable of producing music of the highest calibre, despite his recent public statements and controversy.… Expand
Jun 11, 2018Kids See Ghosts is Cudi's best work since Man On The Moon, Kanye's best work since Yeezus, and one of the best albums of the year in general.Kids See Ghosts is Cudi's best work since Man On The Moon, Kanye's best work since Yeezus, and one of the best albums of the year in general. The album's concise at only 23 minutes but in just 7 tracks incorporates ideas from various musical genres, diverse samples, great featured work from Pusha T/Ty Dolla $ign/King Louie and discusses mental health, growth, violent crime, and where Ye and Cudi are at right now in their lives. An album that both addresses important issues and is incredible musically as well, feel justified giving this one a perfect score.… Expand
Jun 8, 2018Hands down one of the best albums of the year. This album is way better than Ye and it shows why Kanye is know as one of the most giftedHands down one of the best albums of the year. This album is way better than Ye and it shows why Kanye is know as one of the most gifted artists in hip hop. Kid Cudi holds his own throughout the entire album (Kanye outshines him rapping though). This is the best collab album since Run the Jewels and it might be even better. It shows that collab albums can indeed work today even with the failures and mediocre attempts we've been seeing (Drake & Future, Nav & Metro Boomin, Young Thug & Future). I expected this to be WAY more organized than Ye and it definitely is. It's obvious they've been working on this for some time. The production is some of the best this year along with 'Daytona' and Saba's 'Care for Me'. I just can''t understand why Kanye didn't want Ye to flow like this album because he definitely could have if he wanted to. He most likely scrapped the album that flowed for a more erratic and harsh album to reflect his mental state. Ye is not bad and it's an above average album but this is a GREAT album! If this group sticks around, they can really leave a major mark in rap history. Well done, KSG.… Expand

It is probably top 5, if not top 3 in Kanye's discography and definitely the best thing Kid Cudi has ever made. Kid Cudi's past albums have been anywhere between mediocre and painfully unlistenable, but with this project he has definitely redeemed himself. It is honest and touching in it's lyrical content and the production is weird and epic in a way that no Kanye album has ever sounded before.… Expand
