CRITIC REVIEWS

90
HipHopDX

Devoid of any choruses, commercial fare, an overall conceptual vision that actively games the streaming farm, the project beams with authenticity. Bar for bar and beat for beat, Streams of Thought Vol. 1 is a hyper example that the arguments for overall vibe over bars don’t have to be absolute.

Pretty Much Amazing

Ultimately, Thought’s first solo release does what’s expected of him; I just wish it did a little more.

80
The Needle Drop

Backed by production from 9th Wonder and his team, Black Thought comes through with five tracks of STRAIGHT BARS on Streams of Thought, Vol. 1.

75
Pitchfork

It is rigorous but rarely hermetic, a small testament to his sustained excellence.

70
Rolling Stone

True to the title, he doesn't offer any choruses, just streams of verses that cover his own lyrical prowess, history and politics, and whatever else comes to mind.

Lyrically dense and classically Black Thought, it's another good one in a spirited history of making good ones.
