The Californian rapper is upbeat and mature on his impressive debut.

GIGsoup

A powerful debut album to say the least and this may be the foundation for more great music to come.

HipHopDX

It’s a straightforward album, and maybe that’s part of the appeal: No unwelcome surprises.

Highsnobiety

At best, you could say that Light of Mine is optimism as cultural rebellion – at worst, it plays things too safe in an attempt to be liked by everyone (in KYLE’s defense, at least it doesn’t feel he’s ever trying to be anything he’s not).

Pitchfork

The carefree California rapper’s debut is an exceedingly joyous and self-aware slice of pop rap.

I had hopes Kyle would give us a good project due to his fun loving personality and charm. His debut album "light of mine" falls heavy with poor themes and laughably bad lyrics. The issues Also, I cant get out of my head that he sounds like a chance the rapper lite. The features here do nothing for me at all. The production here and few tracks save this to be terrible. Hopefully with his next release he can improve and talk about more interesting and engaging themes.

In a world full of forgettable rap albums flying about every day, Kyle has done really well to make something that’s great fun, very unique, and something that could really push him to the next level. Bravo indeed.
