    Speedin' is an uncomfortably internal album that's a pleasurable listen. It's not as gleefully nihilistic as Future, but comes across just as revelatory.

    Speedin’ 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.

    On a sonic level, much of this album is strong but the identity and continuity are lackluster.

    Speedin’ 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.

    As it stands, this album feels like a few good ideas mired in a mess of half-formed sketches, rough recordings, and simple cliches.

Wanna yell at something? This is your go-to album. For real CuDi fans ya would understand, its part of the journey. For hip-hop fans this album is not for ya. Expand

    Definitely not as terrible as the reviews I have read, but still not great. I personally came into this album with absolutely no expectationsDefinitely not as terrible as the reviews I have read, but still not great. I personally came into this album with absolutely no expectations based on past reviews, but was actually quite surprised. Kid Cudi is a concept artist when it comes to albums, so the title always has a layered meaning i.e., Kid Cudi is not actually from the moon but has his "Man on the Moon" albums. In my opinion the title, Speedin Bullet to Heaven, was a reference to the dark thoughts of self harm. SBtH was also dedicated to anyone suffering from mental illness, so there's a good bet Cudi used his creativity to express himself during a dark time. I hope hasn't left Hip Hop behind because he gave it so much diversity, but he definitely put it aside for this album. The overall tone of the album was dark with a raw, grungy sound, but I enjoyed the chaotic roller coaster. Expand

Cudi needs to scrap this idea and go straight back to the drawing board. Expand
