CRITIC REVIEWS

83
A.V. Club

SR3MM delivers quantity and quality by zeroing in on its creators’ charisma, clarifying the appeal that’s been there the whole time.

81
Pitchfork

Swae and Jxmmi not only place their partying ethos in the rock-star lineage but lobby to earn the same kind of respect as artists deemed “classic rock.” In shooting that gap, SR3MM ends up being their clearest personal statement yet, finding their voices almost coincidentally.

80
Rolling Stone

Where recent marathons like Migos' gratuitous Culture II felt more about streaming algorithms than art, Sr3mm rarely wears out its welcome.

80
AllMusic

Taken as a whole ... the album is a serious time investment. However, broken up into three parts as intended, it provides a trio of easily digestible bites that gives Swae Lee and Slim Jxmmi freedom to indulge their own artistry while maintaining their bond as a duo.

80
Highsnobiety

The collective album, overall, is more innovative, more daring, and flat-out riskier than its predecessors.

77
GIGsoup

As their 3rd effort, Rae Sremmurd didn’t disappoint and brought their distinctive sound per usual. Even with features from Future, Travis Scott, Juicy J, and The Weeknd, the rest of the album carries it’s weight.

70
The Needle Drop

If there's one thing I learned from SR3MM, it's that the Rae Sremmurd brothers work better together.

70
Exclaim!

SR3MM's titular disc leaves little doubt that the two brothers work best in tandem.

60
The Guardian

A decent triple album, but it would have been better yet boiled down to an eclectic single album, the best solo tracks sitting alongside the group efforts: not so much reining ambitions in as realising less is sometimes more.

58
Consequence of Sound

There are plenty of interesting moments. But it would have been nice to go on a journey.

Although it's clear that Rae Sremmurd is better when Slim Jxmmi and Swae Lee operate as a unit as displayed in the miraculous first disc, SR3MM still holds up as a solid three-disc album. Mike Will's production is razor sharp here and often saves cringeworthy, sloppy lyrics from the Sremm brothers and guests alike. It might be compared to Speakerboxxx/The Love Below, but unlike Outkast was during that album's release, Rae Sremmurd prove they're still on an upward trajectory with SR3MM.

This is the rating for Sr3mm. Not Swaecation. Not Jxmmtro. I don’t actually count those as part of the third SremmLife.

This thing slaps though, and these two only really work as a duo.

Powerglide is maybe the catchiest song they've ever made and that's saying something considering swang was stuck in my head for a literal week without me actually knowing what song it was.

Think the first disc (with the brothers together) could have done with more bangers like Powerglide. Felt a bit low energy.
