I can see why people wouldn't like this but for me I absolutely love this album. His lyrics aren't the best in the world but he makes up for it with the flow and I love the darker sound to this album. Hit the top 10 AOTY for me for sure.

This album is pretty inrcredible actually. Erase me sucks though, if you like that you probably are still in high school. It is terrible . The rest of the album is unique and enthralling. Cudi is very creative.

would have rated this in the 50s and that's being generous.

Please, please, please explain what's alternative about this album.
i'm not sure if i would call it full on alternative hip hop but the lyrical themes throughout the record are consistently darker, sadder and more introspective than mainstream hip hop typically is.

Thanks, that's what I'm getting into. There are much more experimental samples and soundscapes inherent in Cudi's music. With the exception of one or two songs, he's getting less and less mainstream and instead more and more dark.

I'm not interested in getting into a 'genre-battle' on this site. Every time I read those threads I feel like I'm just banging my head into a wall for hours.

Like it or dislike it, he's going to alienate some fans with this record, in an attempt at artistic expression. And I fucking love that... it's ballsy as hell. He may have been a little unfocused but I'd rather he try and expand his sound and experiment than put out a safe record that is just top 40/mainstream hip hop.
