With Cruel Summer, Kanye West assembles the hodgepodge roster of his G.O.O.D. Music vanity imprint for a full-fledged posse album. Like his and Jay-Z's Watch the Throne before it, the record often feels like a collection of table scraps from the same sessions that produced 'Ye's 2010 prog rap masterwork My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. It's yet another tightly-packed and mostly structureless scrapbook of ideas and sounds—angular synth gulps, robot choirs, bleeding kick drums, reggae refrains. But where Kanye's lovable egoist schtick has anchored this chaos in the past, he mostly leaves that duty to less present personalities like Big Sean and Pusha T here. The project's best moments instead come from outside the G.O.O.D. roster, with scene-stealing verses from Wu-Tang's Ghostface Killah and Raekwon, as well as 2 Chainz, who delivers a trio of appearances more lively than just about anything on his own album. It's just a shame Kanye was unable to coax similar performances out of his own team.
