There is a lot of.. excess on this album but at the roots of it there is still a lot of really good, classic Kid Cudi talent there. Most of the tracks are a little slower versus his stuff like Pursuit of Happiness. He's four studio albums in though and he proves he's still got it. It is kinda cool to see him switch it up a little. In between the tracks with no lyrics, (1, 4, 8, 9) there are some really good songs. The only thing I would change about this album are those extra lyricless songs. Those "extra" tracks just feel unnecessary to me.
