There is only word to describe this album..GENIUS!
When I listened to the album, I had to stop and do a double take and asked myself Is this a Hip Hop artiste? Is this a hip hop album? I stopped it and played it again. Track after track I could see where Cudi’s head was at..he wanted to revolutionize the Hip Hop genre with a new cinematic sound, almost a new trance, topped with ethereal lyrics, chants and deep soul reaching rhythms. Package the entire ingredients into one album, and you are on Cudi’s flight to the moon.
Every track is amazing but when you hear Destination Mother Moon then Going to the ceremony you can’t help but stop what you are doing and sit, pull up a chair, put your feet up and chill. This music is like Yoga on steroids. It is like smoking musical Marijuana. It is captivating. Satellite flight, Balmain Jeans and Too bad I have to Destroy you are my favourites.
I can tell you , if you are a person that dislikes change or anything different, if you are a purist, if you are one that expects to hear the usual female cussing, male machismo and bravado, then please turn away as this album is not your kind. But if , like me, you embrace anything that comes out of the box differently then buy this album. Cudi has taken us to the moon and you can safely say you have a copy of the type of music generations will hear in the year 2030 and beyond. Cudi has broken all barriers with this package. Free at last, free at least, thank God almighty, a hip hop artiste is free at last.
