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

Kanye brings an intense, almost psychedelic level of production to this project. Ye also delivers some of his best verses lyrically since his classic MBDTF in 2010. Delving into the subject of mental health, both Kanye and Cudi construct a clear concept for the album. Which, although the content is dark lyrically, just feels GOOD to listen to. Accompanied by Cudi's famous Humming harmonizing with the beats, as well as his infectious hooks throughout the album, making this one of Hip-Hop's best collaborative album and I hope to hear more from KIDS SEE GHOSTS in the future.… Expand
