Kid Cudi | "Up Up & Away" Man On The Moon

I have yet to listen to the leaked Kid Cudi "Man On The Moon" album in its entirety mainly because I can't seem to get "Up Up & Away" off of repeat. I have a bad way of approaching new albums. I usually riffle through the entire tracklist, listen to the middle of the song for 10 seconds, then listen to the album in its entirety. I know it cheapens the artists lyrical journey especially in the case of this new album that is divided into 5 acts and any surprises within the album. Maybe because I subconsciously don't like surprises or maybe because I have some form of attention deficit disorder. I approached "Man On The Moon" in the exact same way - compacting it to 2 and a half minutes. I rifled through the entire album with a handful of tracks that sounded quite promising. I got to the last one and have not been able to bypass it yet. The final track on the album is pretty awesome. I would venture to say its the best on the album but I will have to get back to you once I get this off of repeat.
