CRITIC REVIEWS

The 405

I am 100% confident in saying that fans of CuDi will dig this record, as he stays true to himself in all aspects while also hinting at new directions.

HipHopDX

Indicud is an ambitious project that Kid Cudi took a blind shot at, and while by no means does he completely exemplify his immortal identity, he certainly makes a compelling case nonetheless.

70
AllMusic

It's an entertaining, vibrant, and artistically filling album, so consider it a "presents" effort and enjoy the show.

Spin

None of the guest actors here distract from Cudi's signature self-mythologizing and inner turmoil. And most of the time, it's his inner turmoil that beckons you in, rather than merely pushing you out.

A.V. Club

In spite of its brighter outlook, though, Indicud is still a Kid Cudi record, and like its predecessors, it’s a long, unhurried listen, paced like drifting fog.

PopMatters

At it’s best, Indicud delivers catchy, meaningful tunes with a cinematic quality in the way that they’re delivered. However, the album isn’t able to consistently hold this level of gratification over its entire course.

NME

The luscious soundscapes he used to rap over are gone, and the record sounds like a college project put together by a stoned teenager intrigued by industrial noises

Consequence of Sound

This record just proves that Kid Cudi has a lot of sorting to do, and continuing down the same old path simply won’t cut it in the long-run.

Pitchfork

He looks for war in Indicud; he can't find anyone to fight, but he rages anyway.

THIS MIGHT JUST BE A PERSONAL FAVE BUT DONT CRUCIFY ME JUST YET!!!!

I feel like this is easily Cudi’s most INTRIGUING album. I felt like MOTM was solid but very generic after a while, and the simplistic poppy beats felt like sugar overload sometimes. But here, try or fail, Cudi goes for a more spacious (no pun intended) slow burner filled with exciting ideas even if many of them demand more attention and better execution.

Just Whst I Am is now my favorite song of his, from the powerful ... read more

This is just so weird but like not in a endearing way like SB2H it’s just.... strange. Cudi aimlessly throws ideas at the wall and although there are some definite highlights, the album is too bloated for them to make a huge difference. The features similarly are great in theory but are sometimes so nonsensically out of place they don’t add much to the song. I definitely didn’t enjoy this much, this album is a mess.

Well, this was surprisingly fun. Fantano really underrated this. Sure, it's not up there with his best work, but Cudi provides an enjoyable listen.

For a record that's 1 hour 10 minutes long, it was surprisingly fun for most of the duration. Granted, most of the fun came from how dumb and stupidly funny some of the lyrics were, but this album has some of Cudi's most interesting and intriguing beats that I've heard yet. For his previous few albums, I complained that they were a bit too samey ... read more
