CRITIC REVIEWS

HipHopDX

In an era where artists hype up projects that turn out to be nothing but half-baked playlists, 6LACK’s thoughtful embrace of the album format is refreshing. East Atlanta Love Letter is a moody masterpiece that may very well take the artist’s career to new heights.

The Line of Best Fit

With East Atlanta Love Letter, the artist has trumped his opponents and influences with a fragile grace and solid talent for songwriting, echoing that of our most decorated balladeers.

Highsnobiety

6LACK’s lack of a filter makes everything he writes painfully relatable, like the kind of love letter that you would hope never sees the light of day.

70
Exclaim!

Sonically and thematically, the 48-minute downtempo project is impeccably cohesive.

61
Pitchfork

With his chilly vocals, minimalist beats, and conditions of the heart, the Atlanta singer finds a groove but has little to say about human relations outside of his own self-important quagmire.

The Needle Drop
6LACK continues blending into the background of the alternative R&B field on his sophomore album.
