    Kic Cudi has the potential and ability to become a great hip-hop/Alt crossover success, but this album doesn't impress. The production is good at times, but with songs like REVOFEV the beat completely outshines Cudi. Understandably he is taking a unique approach to rap music, but any form of flow on his second album is rare. Lyrically Kid Cudi can reach an audience of accepting fans and please them with his life reflecting and sometimes metaphorical rhymes. Though the uniqueness and production is present this album does not live up to any hype or reasonable standards. In fact The Legend of Mr. Rager seems to be going backwards from his somewhat impressive first release. Expand

    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.
