storyline album


  • the reason melodrama is so complex is that it simultaneously celebrates and criticises parties as a place where the rules no longer apply 
  • parties give us an illusion of control? confined in the world of the party it’s all ‘our rules, our dreams’ and we are ‘kings and queens’
  • homemade dynamite is such a call to arms for our generation okay it feels like a metaphor for the potential we all have to create change 
  • but equally could be a metaphor for our self-destructive tendencies??? 
  • the louvre is beautiful because it glorifies the tiny beautiful moments, relationships that don’t last forever but are still beautiful and priceless and are still works of art - masterpieces and still good enough for the louvre
  • also this is a song about writing a love song? ‘broadcast the boom boom boom and make ‘em all dance to it’ that is literally the conventional role of pop music? 
  • okay but hear me out i think liability/hard feelings are two versions of the same story, liability immediately after the split and hard feelings in retrospect!!!!! there are so many parallels!!!
  • let go of this endless summer afternoon vs. every endless summer’s eating me alive 
  • well i guess i should go vs. well i guess i’ll go home 
  • big mistake of dancing in my storm vs.  how you’d dance for me 
  • i am obsessed with how sober ii explores the performance of being a young adult like ‘oh how fast the evening passes’ and the references to ‘champagne’ suggests some form of performed sophistication 
  • ‘we told you this was melodrama’ could play on this idea of performing a role, or alternatively could play on the way society views the lives of millennials - melodramatic and ridiculous!!!
  • ‘they’ll talk about us, all the lovers, how we kissed and killed each other’  reminds us that this is our legacy, this is how we live forever - it’s super self-reflective and seems to call on us to consider the mark we are leaving on the world BUT also ‘romanticises us making us the stuff of myth and legend, we are immortalised forever in our scandal 
  • writer in the dark!!!!! so like to begin with that double meaning - kissing her literally in the dark / kissing her while he kept her in the dark about how he really felt 
  • this is lorde’s ‘blank space’ revenge song okay fight me on this 
  • her secret power is being able to keep him forever bc she ‘locks him in her heart’ he’ll rue the day he kissed her because in doing so he sealed his fate!!!
  • okay so love of my life supercut: every chorus is like the actual supercut playing back all the good parts back - that sunny pre-chorus with the repetition, mirroring the idea of a highlights reel playing over and over again
  • but it’s also a metaphor for seeing a past relationship through rose-tinted glasses/the way nostalgia makes things beautiful - she is only remembering the beautiful parts
  • okay but the ultimate storyline of the album seems to be from green light, sober, homemade dynamite we get the impression that ‘all there is, is the party’, whereas liability reprise suggests that ‘maybe all this is the party’ which is such a beautiful and hopeful discovery for the album to make - leading straight into perfect places, which celebrates life with all it’s imperfections and flaws!!!

The Storyline of Kid Cudi's Albums

A Kid Named Cudi: Scott’s day to day life
MOTM I: Scott Mescudi’s experience on Earth and his dreams/nightmares, explaining “In My Dreams” and the scenes called (nightmare)’s.
MOTM II: The protagonist, Scott, almost overdoses on cocaine, as in real life, becoming Mr. Rager, specifically in the song “Mr. Rager”. Mr. Rager then realizes the battle is with himself and so he kills himself, hence “The End”
WZRD: Mr. Rager arrives in heaven: “The Arrival”. He meets God in the “Upper Room”
Indicud: Mr. Rager is sent back to Earth, “The Resurrection of Scott Mescudi”, stronger and powerful; he is the “Lord of the Sad & Lonely”. In the end he begins his Journey back to the moon in “The Flight of the Moon Man”.
Satellite Flight: Scott’s, or the character’s, journey in space, which is why it is a prelude to MOTM III. This explains the songs “Satellite Flight”, “Going to the Ceremony”, and his goal which is “In My Dreams 2015”: to be back on Earth, hence “The Return of the Moon Man”. Now the cliffhanger comes here in “Troubled Boy”. We thought he was all ok and powerful, but he is still “troubled”; yet, he must show them, his enemies perhaps?, that he is “stronger”. The album and song ends with “Goodbye”. How is Mr. Rager? How is The Lord of the Sad & Lonely? How is Scott? We don’t know, except for he is troubled.
MOTM III: Scott returns to the moon, hopefully; that is his goal. Does he make it? Who knows?

Scott is a genius. For me, the beats, the lyrics, the sounds, overall, don’t need to be “dope”; they just need to allow me to comprehend the story. He originally studied film making in college, but converted to music making. He really is a genius. He is unique and so very special. I’m so glad we did not lose him to a cocaine overdose or alcohol or anything else reckless. Otherwise, we would have never experienced the journey. Some of you may be thinking that Satellite Flight sucks, but it really doesn’t; it conveys the story so well and sets the atmosphere and mood so much stronger than the rest of his albums. In his real-life goal of telling an amazing story, Satellite Flight truly is considered his best work yet. He wasn’t lying with Indicud either, that was his best work at the time. Indicud was a great, successful attempt at conveying the storyline. Please get this post to Scott’s eyes. It would mean so much for him to know that I get it, along with a limited amount of individuals across the world. Spread the word. Thank you for reading.

"Albums are chapters. They're part of a story. I don't believe in making a record and rushing it. I'm not ready for the next record yet, I'm just not. And there are some things I didn't get to do on the first record,I’m not here to rush a record out, and I wanted to make sure that my first record that I could finish it and make sure that everything that could have been on it I put on it. I do believe that there is a time when you have to close the door and be like, ‘No you can’t touch it, you cannot go back'" - Hunter Hayes
