☆☆☆ 1/2

Criminally underrated minor release from Kid Cudi.

Incredible to think that this is a self-produced record, considering that Scott also forged the beats on "Indicud", which had a lot of underwhelming moments, but at the very least retained a good, consistent aesthetic. "Satellite Flight" is very similar in that regard, but the biggest difference being that instrumentals on this side are more creative and authentic.

And Cudder is on pitch for the most part! ... read more


A misunderstood experimentalist. Cudi transcends hip hop and creates a weird, dark psychedelic-sub genre, further diverging into his own lane in a much more developed and less (insert arbitrary lyrics here) fashion as seen on Indicud. If you're one of his legions of stoner fans, this is the kind of Cudi at his spaciest, you will absolutely love to blaze to.

It's a decent project full of fun synths and beautiful vocals, I just feel like it's trying so hard to be this amazing thing, that it loses quality.


Kid Cudi delivers a futuristic like sound with some of my favourite vocals to date from 'Balmain Jeans'. The instrumentals in between can drag on a bit but add to the overall album.


Kid Cudi’s experimental soundtrack album was a bold idea with incredibly poor execution. In the rare moments when there are lyrics, Cudi botched them by either sounding uncomfortably horny or just not saying much of anything at all. The soundtrack moments are ok for ambience, but boring overall.
