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


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.

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.

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.


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.

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

Well well well...we meet again, Speedin' Bullet 2 Heaven! It's been a while...

I don't know how I've ended up back here again. I guess now that I've got pretty much nothing to do, my conscience has guided me back to re-listening to this for the first time in years. I hated this album with a burning passion just like pretty much everyone else here. There's no way this could possibly end well...

...and then, it sort of clicked! Speedin' Bullet 2 Heaven is...Shockingly Not ... read more
*Will only be listening to disc one because disc two is just demos & b-sides so they are not essential to the album*

Maybe disc 2 made people hate this, but from what I heard, this wasn't so bad after all. Cudi is singing from his heart, it's very obvious, but his singing is not really that good. The instrumentation is nice, but I agree with people saying it's repetitive.

Overall this was a good listen, but it could've been way better, and i know that because Mescudi has proven his ... read more
