Dec 15, 2015Speedin' is an uncomfortably internal album that's a pleasurable listen. It's not as gleefully nihilistic as Future, but comes across just as revelatory.
Dec 15, 2015Speedin’ Bullet 2 Heaven is ultimately messy, challenging, and rough around the edges (perhaps more so than anything Scott has ever released), but there’s also something about it that’s admirably unique.
Dec 15, 2015On a sonic level, much of this album is strong but the identity and continuity are lackluster.
Jan 6, 2016Speedin’ Bullet 2 Heaven is interesting the same way a friend getting a dramatic bad haircut is interesting: Once the shock wears off, you still have to look them in the eye and level with them.
Dec 15, 2015As it stands, this album feels like a few good ideas mired in a mess of half-formed sketches, rough recordings, and simple cliches.

One can definitely respect this guy as an artist. Man on The Moon is a pure classic, even if his later releases weren't exactly up to scratch. What Kid Cudi lacks in production, he makes up for with solid lyrical content - this album has neither.
Knowing this was a rock album, I was curious to find out how these new elements would compliment his vocal talent. It's always fascinating when an artist experiments, but unfortunately the content offered on this album is unlistenable, plain and simple.
The album offers over 18 tracks and over the course of the LP Kid Cudi is either annoying you or boring you to tears. Some of the worst production imaginable plagues the entire record and the vocals just aren't up to par when compared to his previous efforts.
However, there are a few moments where it sounds like the album is trying to redeem itself, but these moments are just too vague and don't happen often enough to make up for everything else presented here. Songs like 'Man In The Night' and 'Judgemental C**t' have some great sounding guitar riffs, but it's just not enough.
There's nothing more to say here, other than the fact that this album just isn't great - both in terms of lyrical content and production. Kid Cudi is a fantastic artist and there's no denying that he has the ability to produce another solid body of work.
This album, however, should be avoided at all costs.
