    Read Review

  2. 8.5 |   The Line Of Best Fit

    What’s already set in stone is the musical genius of the lonely stoner, Kid Cudi, with there not being one duff track present
    Read Review

  3. 8.0 |   Sputnik Music (staff)

    Cudi is flexing and stretching his skills, exploring untouched areas of his psyche and finding things to turn into songs

  4. 8.0 |   Q

    Cudi is very much in a world of his own. Print edition only

  5. 7.0 |   Consequence Of Sound

    With a few simple and appealing beats, some well-timed cameos, a dash of humor, and a handful of semi-inventive rhymes with emotional substance, he actually made an album that flies (more or less) high

  6. 7.0 |   Slant Magazine

    Pursuing genius at the expense of consistency might work out just fine for Cudi: I'm not convinced that he's a good rapper, but I'm pretty sure he's an important one

  7. 7.0 |   FasterLouder

    Works as a whole due to the continuation of a mood and a feel that runs through the whole record

  8. 6.7 |   Pitchfork

    Thematically, Mr. Rager is most compelling when it leaves behind moping alone in your room for moping while you're out on the town-- being a coked-up asshole

  9. 6.0 |   BBC

    Mr. Rager can only be heard as a drab disappointment
    Read Review

  10. 6.0 |   Uncut

    "These Worries", bulked out with grizzling guitars and Mary J Blige, should be huge. Print edition only

  11. 5.5 |   Beats Per Minute

    Were Cudi’s music a car, it’d look real nice but go practically nowhere

  12. 5.0 |   BBC

    Feels like a never-ending chore
    Read Review

  13. 5.0 |   Rolling Stone

    Cudi fancies himself a deep downer, too often he's kind of a bore

  14. 5.0 |   A.V. Club

    The album is listenable... But the songs have little going on beyond it
