Your Review



It’s a record that should rightfully become one of the defining hip-hop releases of 2018.

Crack Magazine

It feels like he’s holding your hand, taking you both externally down his streets and his world, and internally through the tangled tendrils of his own psyche. You remain a willing passenger because the sounds Snow couches his visions in are just so damn addictive. One of the most delicious debuts of the year so far.

The Guardian

Though it’s hard to hear his Dublin roots on this long-awaited debut, Snow’s conversion to soft-voiced Brooklyn seducer is convincing and stylish.


Overall Dear Annie is pleasant ... but it could have benefitted from losing some filler and gaining just a little more dynamism from Rejjie himself.

Loud and Quiet

Rejjie is a loveable rapper with a lot of promise when we can hear his personality, but he frequently fades into the background on his own album.

He’s so dedicated to synthesizing his most obvious influences—channeling Tyler, the Creator and N.E.R.D. down to their throat-clearing ad-libs and neo-New Jack funk—that he hasn’t quite established an identity of his own. That failing doesn’t dull the jams or diminish his evident potential, but it does hold him back.

Dear Annie is a well produced record which has a couple good instrumentals buried amongst the 20 tracks, the record gets really repetitive though and the formula is mostly one-note

Rejjie Snows rapping is the main downfall of the record, I just cant get with rap vocals so flat and colourless and his lyrics really don't feel like they're coming from a place of passion

There's little personality in Dear Annie, it's a record of immature content which doesn't even aim to be anything spectacular

Beautiful sound all the way through this album, it keeps a vibe which is the sign of a well thought out and orchestrated album. Production is crisp and warm, perfect length.
Only thing stopping this from being a 100 is would like a couple of funkier tracks in this to mix it up a bit, but other than that - which isn't really a fault, best album of the year so far.

One word to describe this album is ""under-whelming"".

Rejjie's production and vocals are enough to assure minor popularity, but he is easily one of the least original sounding emcees of all time. While he celebrates his influences like Pharrell, Childish Gambino, and just about everyone from the Odd Future roster from Internet & Frank to Domo & Tyler; he's often so busy borrowing production techniques and aiming for nonthreatening pop-funk hits, he's oblivious to the cornier moments and lack of depth.

Not bad. Borrows a bit too much from Tyler the Creator without stamping more of a signature sound of his own though.
Purchasing Dear Annie from Amazon helps support Album of the Year.
