Pitchfork

Thug offers up a nice summertime party record, his most cheerful, undemanding project since his early mixtapes.

Exclaim!

At 15 songs, the release walks the fine line of consistency and monotony, delivering a stream of well-crafted bangers sprinkled with Thugga's unmistakable aura as the binding glue.

PopMatters

Slime Language might be seen as insubstantial in the larger scheme of Thug's career, and perhaps that's true. But this is just a refinement rather than an envelope-pushing statement, a reminder that Thug is great at making this kind of music even when he's not rousing the rabble over his flamboyant fashion or his abstract starchild gibberish.

HipHopDX

At the end of the day, Slime Language suffers from being predictable, which is the last thing you’d ever want or expect from a Young Thug-affiliated project. The lesser-known artists don’t make much of a mark, the more notorious features are the clear highlights, and the project, as a whole, offers nothing to compete with the highs of Beautiful Thugger Girls — let alone the hallucinatory string of releases from 2015.

XXL

Thug’s rapping, singing, and general presence on the project is such an all-consuming force it tends to overwhelm any artist on a track.

Highsnobiety

Put simply; Slime Language is a good Young Thug album, but an average compilation project. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself fast-forwarding straight to the Thugger verses.

The Needle Drop

Slime Language is an unadventurous outing for Thugger and an unimpressive showcase of YSL's roster.

This would have gotten a 50 first listen from me, but there’s a song called Scoliosis.

Sorry I don’t make the rules it has to be a 100.

EDIT: okay it's been a couple weeks I gotta drop it back down.

The Preamble:
I hope Jeffery makes a comeback with this record. His track record as of late is shaky. This is make ot or break it.

The Review:
I'm disappointed once again by Young Thug. Its been 2 years since Thug dropped a good project. Jeffery dropped Summer 2016. He has slowly been reduced to a generic trap rapper since. While there are great tracks on here, there's a good share of filler. Thug sounds like he isnt even trying most of the time. I think Thug needs to go back to the drawing ... read more

damn, come on thug. There's so much throwaway on this. What happened? It certainly isn't bad, but Young Thug clearly has better projects in him. I just expect more.

Nothing new but I still like it, Young Thug manages to change things up just enough for me to keep listening. Oh Yeah and Audemar are the standout tracks for me. The former has a minimal synth and pretty low-key guitar sample as practically the only parts of the beat, creating a great progression to the track. Audemar, It's A Slime, and Goin Up are more examples of Thug's ability to make melodic, off-kilter trap songs, something he nearly perfected on Jeffrey in 2016. Gunna shows his talent ... read more
