This opening statement from Man on the Moon: The End of Day is full of the pulsing, ethereal, wholly unique matter heard on Kid Cudi's "Day 'N' Nite." His is a flowing, spacey stream of consciousness that borrows equally from hip-hop, R&B and (sometimes) prog rock. DeVille and I wondered yesterday if Cudi will soon surpass Kanye West in terms of creative output.

I'd say so. Holla, Shaker Heights.
