Great lyrics, great production, and SZAs vocal delivery, cadence and flow are just so addicting and nice, god i just really ended up loving this album. Best R&B album of the year, lots of textures, super sexual, big fan.

Is this the worst album of the year? Probably! Everything is boring. Nothing is catchy. Nothing is fun or exciting. Half the vocals are awkward. All the instrumentals are repetetive and half-baked. All the interludes suck. "We Got The Power"? Did anyone actually listen to that before the record came out? Did someone think "Momentz" was a good song? Did someone think "Sex Murder Party" was a good song? WTF Happened here?

Classic 2/10 thug lyrics about fucking, but really great vocal performances and singing (as usual) and some actually really nice folksy, dark r&b songs. Cohesive project, a few snoozers but overall a pleasant enough listen and another showcase for thug's trademark vocals.

Not really buying. I think half of these songs are the same song (millennial party culture is banal and empty!), Jack Antonoffs 'bombastic, feel good' chorus moments fucking suck, and I think it lacks some of the idiosyncracy and detail that made her last record so good. Doesn't help that everyone co-opted her sound and played it out. Liability and Supercut are great though.

This album is fine. I like the concept, the whole album feels like an ominous ceremony before a mythical apocalypse, but I didn't love the fuzzy, glitchy production and choppy sampling, and the mood of the tracks, especially through the first third, feel repetitive.
