Kid Cudi’s Man on the Moon II: The Legend of Mr. Rager

Kid Cudi finally released his highly anticipated follow up to Man on the Moon: The End of the Day and I for one am very pleased with his sophomore effort. Kid Cudi delves more into his “dark” side for this album, talking of his new fame and how it corrupted him. Most reviews that I read thought that this was a bad direction for the Cudder to go in. But I think the opposite. Kid Cudi is using emotions to create a newer sound, with the same obsession with contraband and the same mystical sound. Songs like Scott Medsici vs. the World still sound like the good ol’ Kid Cudi but now his frustration with the world has infiltrated his music, giving it a sort of mature approach. In some ways it seems like he is just complaining about his “awful” life, but I think he is reflecting admirably and his music reflects that. Other tracks like Ashin’ Kusher and REVOFEV show his maturity but also his roots with the psychedelic melodies and lyrics. But the song Erase Me is a step in the new direction, with a heavy guitar riff the entire song. Over all Kid Cudi has struck gold again with more music that will be bumpin’ in every teenagers car until he decides to release anymore music.
