Kid Cudi’s Man on the Moon II: The Legend of Mr. Rager landed in stores today. Cudi, Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music teammate, has a sophomore album that’s just as spacey as the last, but way darker. After bouts with addiction, this grade A- record chronicles his trippy journey to higher ground. Cee-Lo Green’s The Lady Killer joins Cudi on shelves. It’s another album we loved—a stellar blend of Motown grooves, and lyrics that both spiteful and joyous. Legendary producer Quincy Jones’ Q: Soul Bossa Nostra is out as well. It’s a covers album featuring today’s stars singing his greatest hits. Michael Jackson’s “P.Y.T.” and Lesley Gore’s “It’s My Party” are included. Though panned by many, Jones said recently in an interview with us that he’s paying the haters no mind.
So you guys be the judge. Which albums will you be buying today or this week? Why? Let us know.
