HipHopDX

Curry has constructed a project that plays to the sonic structures of the era without sacrificing meaningful content in doing so. TA13OO is the culmination of his promise and talent, resulting in Curry’s magnum opus.

Realistically, Ta13oo is extremely satisfying from a consumption standpoint. It’s everything I’d want from a rap album this year.

The Needle Drop

TA13OO's three-act concept could have used some fleshing out, but the music at the core is easily Denzel Curry's best yet.

Pitchfork

The South Florida rapper carves out his own lane within the genre known as SoundCloud rap, displaying considerable versatility as he channels the pain and confusion of youth.

To call it psychedelic is a cliché, but the album is a multi-part, constantly-moving, collection of harsh emotions with a funky twist that works, even if the final leg slows down the momentum a tad.

This album just doesn't have the bite I thought it would, he kinda played it safe here to me. The last 3 tracks are the top 3 imo, there were also many bad lines on this album, most of the beats are pretty dime a dozen too. Denzel's consistently sticky hooks and incredibly cut throat and untamed performances are what carried this thing for me, outside of that I can't say this has fulfilled me like I wanted it to.

So like... I have had this album on repeat for the last 4 hours. I didn’t really like Imperial for the lack of strong hooks, but TA13OO manages to surpass expectations with extremely dark production, catchy hooks, ear wormy melodies... it’s just overall incredibly solid front to back.

Fans are most likely going to be disappointed with this record initially, and it's honestly a damn shame considering just how thematically developed it is in my opinion. I've been following Denzel for quite a while now, and while I do enjoy a fair amount of his material, I could never find myself fully invested in his full length projects due to a lack of overall focus. However, once I heard that he was opting for a three act structure on TA13OO, I was more than interested. Denzel's an ... read more
