A.V. Club

Big Boi might have already seen his career peak, but he certainly is at his most selfless, honest, and exploratory now. 

80
HipHopDX

What is technically Big Boi’s third solo outing (if we’re counting Speakerboxxx), is a calculated risk that pays off for open-minded fans.

FACT Magazine

A more immediate, instantly addictive hip-hop album you will not find this side of My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.

Drowned in Sound

Despite the heterogeneous nature of the album as a whole, Patton is never out of his depth, even when paired with unusual collaborators. 

65
Under The Radar

Vicious Lies isn't a bad album by any means, but it suffers when held up to the expectations of the past.

61
Pitchfork

Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors is on the one hand a genre-busting statement of artistic restlessness but it's also a mess. 

52
Paste

Vicious Lies is the worst record he’s ever had his name on.

This album is a genre-hopping ambitious project. It is also kind of a disaster where for every success there is 1 or 2 failures.

Best Tracks: Objectum Sexuality, In The A, Lines, Shoes for Running, Gossip

Worst Track: Tremendous Damage

Overrated Tracks: Mama Told Me, She Hates Me and She Said Okay

Underrated Track: Apple of My Eye

A Perfect mix of Hip-hop, underground hip-hop and Alternative music.

"In the A" and "Thom Pettie" save this album, barely, it's so bad for me that even a goddamn Jai Paul collaboration is forgettable.

If nothing else, it reminded me how much I love Sir Lucious Leftfoot
