    It's definitely something you can listen to even if you're not into hip hop. There's something special about it and the song "Erase me" doesn't sound like rap.

    it bored me to death. it had great production but once again his lyrics were not good. i dont hate kid cudi. i actually like him. but he needs to have better lyrics. im not hating. he's better than this. music wise i give it a 7. lyrics i give it 3.

    Lacks the freshness compared to his first album, and the album on a whole is just slower and darker. Doesn't have the track to track quality like the first album, and there is not one single that just blows me away. Kind of a step back for Kid Cudi to be honest.

    Hmmm, very tricky Kid Cudi in his sophomore slightly misses. Best Tracks: Scott Mescudi vs. The World, Don't Play This Song, Marijuana, Erase Me, MANIAC, Mr. Rager, and, All Along.

    Kid Cudi is a brilliant Rapper & Artist. But This album barely impressed me. Some songs had its moments but most of them didnt get me hyped as much as the first man on the moon did. WZRD should be classic album it will be worth the wait

    In music, the best artists bare their souls and shed light into unknown realities. With Cudi, however, the wounds might still be too deep, since he bemoans his way through the impressive soundtrack and lacks the essence needed to make this project resonate.Life has its ups and downs, but there's no need to implode.
  2. If you're hoping for change here, give up now. Man on the Moon II: The Legend of Mr. Rager is also presented in five acts, and again has no real structure to justify them.

    Like his debut album, the sequel suffers and shines due to inconsistency. Cudi's strong creative streak leads him to follow through on every idea that crosses his mind, resulting in brilliantly unique moments and lots of stoner stumbles.
