CRITIC REVIEWS

PopMatters

Meghan Trainor's Treat Myself delivers the usual lip service to feminism that branding agencies employ to beef up the portfolios of their sexy, feminine clientele.

60
AllMusic

Delayed for over a year, Treat Myself lacks some of the effortless charm of her debut as Trainor trades her breezy singer/songwriter energy in favor of a sophisticated production style that sometimes threatens to lose her in the mix.

The Arts Desk

The songs that stay with you the longest are the sassiest or most heartfelt.

50
Spectrum Culture

There’s always something a little off about this album.

41
Pitchfork

The pop star attempts to be all things to be all people, offering an overstimulating mix of sounds and a message of self-flagellation disguised as empowerment.

40
NME

At times Meghan Trainor's third album sounds like Glee, and at others like the Love Island soundtrack. But it never sounds good.

The Young Folks

For an album that meant a lot to Trainor’s career, Treat Myself ends up being a tiresome listen filled with fabricated glam-pop worthy of the millennial garbage showcased on modern FM radio.

I can't even imagine how much she spent to have Nicki Minaj and *THE PUSSYCAT DOLLS* on her album. Probably half of the budget of this album.

Has Meghan matured any single bit since her past fiascos? No. Is this album any different from her past fiascos? You can say so. In an era of TikToks and lip balms, this is just a "modern" blend of all possible trends from the past 6 months. I just can't see how useful would it be writing a full review about this, so I'll sum up with: It's ... read more

EDIT REVIEW (05.29): this album is trash, her voice is annoying, her lyrical content is awful, the pop trends here is shit. the only high point here is that this album does not sound like a meghan trainor album. but the low point is that this sounds like a taylor swift's parody

that's the review, she's over and i'm over it.

I really hate pop sometimes. It just gives artists a green light to be as generic and ambition less as possible, because they know they’ll still be rewarded commercially. Meghan Trainor gives us 50 minutes of soulless sounds you’d hear at a bachelorette party.

Just a bland and generic pop album with zero personality or character. For what it is, it isn’t terrible I guess, but what’s the point? I just don’t really care. Production is the basic pop sound you would expect, and the songwriting is the same thing. Meghan Trainor isn’t interesting vocally, and she doesn’t really bring much personality, so these songs could be for anybody. It’s cookie cutter mainstream pop, and if that’s your thing maybe you see ... read more

Meghan's best album to date, filled with some great pop hits, but I'm still waiting for a little bit of substance.
