Billboard

Speedin' is an uncomfortably internal album that's a pleasurable listen.

Complex

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.

AllMusic
He's a maverick, no doubt, but he's also just earned himself his own wing in the Hall of Albums Best Left to Hardcore Fans.

HipHopDX

The album seems made by someone unable to find the lightning in a bottle that was so impressive and entrancing on his first two LPs. Furthermore, much of the album seems disjointed with nothing but Beavis and Butthead interludes tying together the tracks.

Pitchfork

Is Kid Cudi serious? This is the first thing I asked myself listening to Speedin' Bullet 2 Heaven, and it's not as snide a question as it sounds; it's genuinely hard to tell.

Consequence of Sound

There’s no joy in the fact that Cudi’s latest, Speedin’ Bullet 2 Heaven, is a difficult listen, meandering, and bland.

The Young Folks
It’s easy to comprehend where the faults are, and the main fault comes from Cudi’s own desire to appease. Yet this; this album is devoid of quality one should expect from popular and successful artists of Cudi’s scape. So who is he really appeasing? Not me, that’s for sure.

Kid Cudi goes grunge and it doesn't go well.

Funny enough the fact that nobody aperantly likes this album makes it stronger. Kid Cudi is pouring his soul out saying that he's in complete pain and everyone was like "nah this shit sucks, 0."

Like even on a technical level I don't get how this can be a 0. Like is Fantano going to try and tell me that a 6ix9ine album or a Logic album somehow is a stronger project than this? Like somehow this is the most offensive release of the 2010's. I'm sorry if I sound kind of bitter but I ... read more

In a traditional sense, the album is repetitive, boring, and rudimentary beyond belief. However I expected it to be completely unlistenable. I don’t find it to be that. It truly is shit, but in the background it sounds like a crazy weird man mumbling about his problems. Listen to something else, please

Speedin Bullet to Heaven is god awful but i am just so taken aback by its rawness, it is such an eerie look into Cudi’s psyche at the time. he was very unwell and it is painfully obvious on every single track, it is a harrowing album that primarily focuses on his desire to die and his reasons for doing so. this is truly terrible but it really is a fascinating album. only someone mentally ill and just completely off the deep end could have created it and i appreciate that. it really is a ... read more

God this was terrible. I'm legit confused on what Cudi was trying to go for here. It feels so hollow and is just terrible structured all around. Not to mention the mixing on this and Cudi's vocal performances are ear-bleeding bad. I've seen people coming around and giving this thing high scores and I honestly envy them because how tf are they seeing what I'm not seeing in this LP?
