Late Thursday night, Kid Cudi released his sixth studio album, Passion, Pain & Demon Slayin’.

Passion, Pain & Demon Slayin’ comes at the end of what was a very interesting 2016 for Cudi.

West recruited Cudi to sing the hook on “Father Stretch My Hands Pt. 1,” a song that gained massive popularity and further cemented Cudi as the go-to-guy for rap choruses.

After spending the summer teasing his new album, things went south again for Cudi on September, in the form of a tweet storm about the rap industry.

Throughout 2016, the intense loyalty of Kid Cudi fans was evident.

On Passion, Pain & Demon Slayin’, Cudi often alternates between sounds and moods.

Luckily for audiences, Cudi does have plenty of enjoyable songs on his album like “Surfin'” and “By Design,” which both employ up-beat dance melodies, and energetic, unmistakable vocals from Cudi.

The difference in style and mood between songs on Passion, Pain & Demon Slayin’ does not lead to a cohesive sound for the album, but rather factions of highs and lows that mirror Cudi’s personal life.
