KiD CuDi - Man On The Moon = ALBUM OF THE YEAR!!!

As the title of this blog post says, this is my fav album this year. There have been a few I have really liked like Asher's 'Asleep in the Bread Aisle and Em's Relapse, but I am just loving Cudi's album. I am surprised I love it so much as for the longest time I just couldn't see what the big deal was with this guy. Day n Nite was cool, but after that I was like meh nothing else going on.

Then I went to the Wireless festival where he performed and I was like WOW he is awesome. So I checked out his mixtapes again and for some reason it just clicked and I was really feeling him *pause*.

So I was really looking forward to the album and now having it many plays through, I bloody love it. You know an album is good when you very rarely press the skip button.

In My Dreams, Soundtrack 2 My Life, Simple As.., Solo Dolo, Heart Of A Lion, My World, Day N Nite, Sky Might Fall, Enter Galatic, Alive, CuDi Zone, Make Her Say, Pursuit of Happiness, Hyyerr...If you didn't know or realise these are the names of his songs, this is 14 out of 15 and these are the one's I like. The last song on the album is ok, but I am just not a huge fan of it. But 14 out of 15 isn't bad at all is it?

It's a very different album to whats out at the moment, he has this monotone singing style then he raps, his subject matters are different to everyone's. It's an album in the vain of a 808's and Heartbreaks or Andre 3000's The Love's rap but its kinda not rap, i's just different but awesome lol.

To wrap it up, defo worth a purchase, if you liked his singles so far you will love the album. Fav songs on the album are Alive and Pursuit of happiness...

Rating: 9/10

Wow! No love for Up up and away eh? Nice song to end the album on, seeing as most of the tracks are pretty glum and slow! Still I wasn't feeling the album at first, but it's a grower!
