|Feel the Love|
|[Chorus: Kid Cudi] I can still feel the love I can still feel the love I can still feel the love Feel the love [Verse: Pusha-T, Kid Cudi & Kanye...||See the rest of the song lyrics|
Jun 11, 2018For the most part in fact, the album’s production is curated with Cudi in mind, a sonic bag of treats for those who vibe to the gloomy, celestial exploration of his early material as well as the rap rock stylings he has demonstrated since. ... Whereas the beats on ye sounded rushed and underdeveloped, the beats on KSG have some meat on ’em, crafting a sonic mood board that evokes thoughts of psilocybin mushroom trips, spiritual healing and yes, ghosts.
Jun 14, 2018A collaboration that alternates from alienation and sadness to melodic tenderness, punkish rap bravado, and triumph in 23 minutes. It’s both embarrassing and gripping: never boring and often euphoric. ... It makes for a perfect version of a Kid Cudi album, with Cudi taking center stage under the guiding hand of Kanye’s stellar production.
Jun 11, 2018The songs are the most intriguing ones to emerge from this Wyoming project thus far. ... A lot of the energy that "ye" seemed to be gasping for fills the lungs of this project, and it’s humbling to consider how much this material might have enlivened West’s own album.

Jun 9, 2018Kids See Ghosts can be considered one of the best collaborative efforts In Hip-Hop.
The album, fully produced by Kanye West, strikes withKids See Ghosts can be considered one of the best collaborative efforts In Hip-Hop.
The album, fully produced by Kanye West, strikes with it's eerie and dark samples, as well as rough and gritty melodies. Kid Cudis Voice compliments the beats perfectly, and Kanye's few parts scattered over the Album contain some of of his best lyrics.
They both talk about mental Health and their way to recovery and happiness, climaxing in the Outro "Cudi Montage", which can be considered a Track about Kanye's and Cudi's reunion after their split back a few years ago.
Both Artists perform some of their best craft yet, with Kid Cudi nearly returning to MOTM levels, and Kanye being as strong as ever, with quality production and good vocals. The album gives an in-depth look into mental states of two of the most beloved rappers/singers, which is also reflected in the sound of the beats. If Kanye West's "ye" Is what Heaven sounds like, then Kids see Ghost is the exact, equally good, opposite.… Expand
Jun 12, 2018This album is a wonderful blend of many different genres. Hip hop, psychedelic rock, and experimental music all clash together in an albumThis album is a wonderful blend of many different genres. Hip hop, psychedelic rock, and experimental music all clash together in an album that lives in its own chaos. The 7 tracks swing from emotion to emotion with no warning. From the wild snares and "BRAAAP" ad-libs on Feel the Love to the somber melody that hangs in the background of Reborn. Kanye produces the entire tracklist and there is not one dull moment in the tracklisting. Kids See Ghosts is Kanye's most polished and best-executed attempt at forward thinking and experimental production. The beats are absolutely nuts and the performances match it on every level. The only gripe I have with this album is that I wanted more tracks. 10/10… Expand
Jun 10, 2018An honor to listen to. Kid Cudi's raw emotion-spewing vocals paired with Kanye West's immaculate production lays the foundation for an albumAn honor to listen to. Kid Cudi's raw emotion-spewing vocals paired with Kanye West's immaculate production lays the foundation for an album to vibe to all summer long. Cudi's return to singing on "Ye" was a promising sign, which amazingly transitioned into this masterpiece. This album is the best G.O.O.D. Music album release of 2018, by far, in my opinion. While Kanye West is ever-evolving, he returns to the "Old Kanye" flow for many of the tracks on this album, which was not necessary to make a great album, but his return is very welcomed.… Expand

Nothing innovative or insightful, neither of them sound good. A mess really.… Expand
