  1. 9.2 |   Earbuddy

    Kid Cudi and Kanye West come together for a spooky good collaborative album

  2. 9.0 |   All Music

    NEW Kids See Ghosts is everything Ye wasn't, delivering a worthwhile listen in spite of the extended PR disaster that preceded its release. With Cudi as the yang to West's yin, the pair inch closer to finding peace and a light in the darkness

  3. 9.0 |   Exclaim

    Every bit as good as it should be; this is genuinely the reintroduction to both artists the world deserves

  4. 9.0 |   The Line Of Best Fit

    Kids See Ghosts is an album to send your demons packing and put your worst fears about Kanye West’s artistic decline to bed

  5. 9.0 |   Drowned In Sound

    You’d expect no less from West, who essentially made self-belief into an instrument, and Cudi, who became a saviour of his generation by opening his debut album with the words “I’ve got some issues that nobody can see”

  6. 8.3 |   Gig Soup

    A successful exercise in emotional liberation, something that the pair wish to share, and for us to engage with similarly

  7. 8.0 |   The 405

    The most exuberant and creative-sounding project they've have put out in years
    Read Review

  8. 8.0 |   The Guardian

    One week on from the underwhelming, muddled solo album Ye, West is newly galvanised by Cudi’s stoner wisdom

  9. 8.0 |   NME

    Sees Kanye West and Kid Cudi catch up with the fragmented, fragile brand of hip-hop that they helped to shape
    Read Review

  10. 7.6 |   Pitchfork

    The psychic bond between Kanye West and Kid Cudi yields a spacious and melancholy album about brokenness—thoughts are fragmented, relationships are ended, and societal ties are cut
    Read Review

  11. 7.5 |   A.V. Club

    Cudi is, without qualification, the spiritual and artistic backbone of Kids See Ghosts, the source of its truest artistic risks and the instrument of its greatest triumphs

  12. 7.0 |   music OMH

    Kids See Ghosts overall is a good album, and leaves the listener with a much better impression than last week’s Ye and 2016’s Passion, Pain & Demon Slayin’, though it can be a frustrating listen

  13. 6.0 |   Rolling Stone

    Though nowhere near as incisive, infectious or rewarding as their best work, Kids See Ghosts is still an important step forward into an era of big moods and short attention spans
