Revolution of Evolution
"Where will you be for the Revolution?"
New Cudi surfaced yesterday and it serves as just another part of what I think is G.O.O.D. Music's hostile takeover of the second half of 2010. Cudi's been performing this song live pretty frequently lately so I knew it was only a matter of time because we heard it in CDQ. On REVOFEV (which is an abbrev. for Revolution of Evolution) we hear our "big brother" Cudi preparing for "the Revolution" and rallying the listeners to follow him. The Revolution he speaks of can be taking in many different ways but I'm guessing he's talking about the current evolution in the music industry. This song showcases Cudi's affinity for 70s psychedelic rock and new age because the beat on this song reminds me of something The Beatles would've put out during their Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Band days. Cudi doesn't rap at all on this song (which apparently had irked a few people) and instead brings his drowsily sings through this call to action for evolution in music. The structure of the song and the lyrics are kept simple and this works perfectly because I believe it was made to be an anthem and it will quickly get stuck into your head. It's uplifting, militant, melodic, spacy, epic, ridiculously catchy and all Cudi. Do yourself a favor and REVOFEV. You already know what to do after you hear the song, hit up them comments! Till next post, Rock on from Krypton!
P.S. CONGRATS TO THE LAKERS FOR THEIR 16th CHAMPIONSHIP AND KOBE FOR THE 5th RING, YOU GUYS DESERVED IT!
