Review
Always Strive and Prosper by A$AP Ferg
Spin

If you were to overlook the glaring disparity of its sonic palette and the general scattered nature of the ideas and tracks on Always Strive and Prosper, there are still the undercooked raps, which often completely lack nuance.

Review
Always Strive and Prosper by A$AP Ferg
NME

Trap lord, misty-eyed raconteur or pop crossover star? Ferg’s hoping to be all these things at once – he just doesn’t quite have the charisma to pull it off.

Review
VIEWS by Drake
The Guardian

Views isn’t a perfect album – some judicious pruning of the less impactful tracks would make it more easily digestible, and there are certainly moments when you start to wish Drake would cast his gaze a little further afield than his own navel.

Review
The Magic Whip by Blur
Mojo

For a collection with an eye on the setting sun and the slow decline, it’s a fine late flowering. If they’ve made it, finally, to the end, there’s nothing to regret here.

Review
Ology by Gallant
PopMatters

His first record reveals a felicity with language, a charismatic manner of singing, and a deep understanding of what makes a song work well beyond his years. Each track works on several layers. One can listen to it, make love to it, or just move to the beats.

Review
Majid Jordan by Majid Jordan
AllMusic

While their sound is rooted in slightly drowsy, electronics-driven studio productions like so many of their peers, they draw more from early-'80s post-disco and synth pop for rhythmic heft.

Review
EVOL by Future
AllMusic

There are no great strides forward artistically or tracks designed to take over radio, but when it comes to the infectious trap rap that the MC has been dominating for the past year or so, Evol is as good as Purple Reign and features no filler.

Review
Not To Disappear by Daughter
Pretty Much Amazing

A few tracks have prominent redeeming factors, but the majority convey the message that they’re desperately trying to appeal to empathy by sounding as sad as possible. It’s a fundamentally misguided approach. Sadness is an effective musical tool, but not when it’s this monotonous.

Review
Gore by Deftones
No Ripcord

Gore is a listen as complex and engrossing as we’ve come to expect from Deftones, and they continue to be a band that matures organically, becoming more and more fluid in their own craft.

Review
Lemonade by Beyoncé
Tiny Mix Tapes

For all the scorn and fireworks, LEMONADE is maybe most remarkable for its capacity for healing ... It’s a work that relishes in the movement of emotionality, the contradictory wrecking-ball feelings that spring from disappointed love, that could turn you to drought if turned from. And it never loses its focus.

Review
Lemonade by Beyoncé
The Line of Best Fit

With Lemonade, Beyoncé has caused as much conversation as any single artist possibly could, and provided a one-of-a-kind look into her personal life without sacrificing any of her regality, something only she could do.

Review
Lemonade by Beyoncé
Consequence of Sound

Lemonade marks Beyoncé’s most accomplished work yet. It is the perfect combination of the sharp songwriting of 4 with the visual storytelling acumen of her self-titled record. Here, we see Beyoncé fully coming into her own: wise, accomplished, and in defense of herself.

Nocturnal Koreans by Wire
Pitchfork

Nocturnal Koreans ranks among Wire’s most musically relaxed releases, with Newman mostly singing in calm, sometimes hushed tones. But it’s only relaxed in the sense that a sleepless night in your bedroom is relaxed—the pillows and sheets feel familiar, but your thoughts are riddled with anxieties over the unknown.
