Complex.com just published their list of “25 Rap Albums From the Past Decade That Deserve Classic Status” and one of them Was Kid Cudi’s sophomore effort “Man on the Moon II”. I’m sure some would argue in favor of Cudi’s debut but here’s what Complex had to say about the album.
Cudi’s ambitious five act structure actually works here, with a second attempt at narrative-driven sequencing that comes across as more effective and convincing. Reviews of the album were all over the place, from lauded to panned, and it only makes sense. Man on the Moon II: The Legend of Mr. Rager is a difficult, distorted look into the twisted mind of Scott Mescudi. The people who relate turned this album into a cult classic, and the people who don’t only heightened the misunderstood aura that surrounds this album’s legend.
Do you agree? Would you give classic status to Man on the Moon: The End of Day instead? Let us know in the comments.
