Beats Per Minute

Cole is a man to himself. He was faced with ignorance, and cranked out a hit album in its face.

Consequence of Sound

The Sideline Story is a safe album; rarely shooting for the stars, it consequently lacks extreme highs.

PopMatters

For whatever flaws listeners might be able to take away from Cole World, it’s near impossible to argue it’s not an easy or flagrantly enjoyable listen.

Pitchfork

It doesn't help that Cole brings the least-flavorful bars of his career to his debut, aiming, most likely, for something more universal than his diaristic mixtapes.
