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.

Jun 9, 2018Kids See Ghosts can be considered one of the best collaborative efforts In Hip-Hop.
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
Jun 11, 2018First track kicks off with a great beat, and the first good cudi hook. Pusha T delivers with a great verse, and Kanye gives a great vocalFirst track kicks off with a great beat, and the first good cudi hook. Pusha T delivers with a great verse, and Kanye gives a great vocal addition to the beat.
Second song is a little worse, my least favorite. The beat just isn't the same quality. I like the additions like the woodwind. The flows and hooks are on point though
4th dimention is the greatest song here. It's amazing. The beginning sample has madlib intro-style. The beat is amazing, the kanye verse is definitely good with an amazing ending. The laughter into Cudi's verse is amazing, and his flow is great. I like the ending as well
Freeee is a great beat, even if it was ripped. The vocal layers are great, and all artists provide some of their greatest singing ever. Ty Dolla Sign steals the show though, and the synths at the end are great.
Reborn goes a little long, but sounds like something straight off Man on the Moon 2. I would have liked it more if it were 1-2 minutes less because of the repetitive hook.
The title track is another highlight. The beat is great, Mos Def delivers a great hook that switches to Cudi. The flows and verses are great, and Mos Def's outtro is great.
Cudi Montage is a great finisher. I don't really know what to say other than that it's an emotional track.
Overall, there are no bad songs, and some of the greatest peaks in either Kanye or Cudi's career. It encapsulates the Man on The Moon 2 Cudi, with a variety of Kanye production and his best rapping. It's the perfect collaboration, and can't wait for a second album… 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
