Pitchfork

The second album from the Chicago MC is lighter and more fun than his debut, focusing on his incredibly versatile voice within a warm palette of sludgy R&B and neo-funk.

Highsnobiety

Even if NOIR feels a little sporadic, it’s filled with potent music — there’s just a sense that this is more a great collection of songs than a great album.

Consequence of Sound

Few other artists take such a creative approach in blending genres and crafting lyrics. Amidst a few bumps and some filler, the result of his exploration are several songs that are an intense pleasure to listen to.

I don't really understand the negative reception on this album. I don't think there are any bad tracks on here and I think it's actually more fun than blkswn. Smino's unique flows and rhyme schemes are unmatched.

Favorite tracks: KOVERT, L.M.F., KLINK, TEQUILA MOCKINGBIRD, SPINZ, SUMMER SALT, Z4L, WE GOT THE BISCUITS, HOOPTI, LOW DOWN DERRTY BLUES, FENTY SEX, BAM 2x, MF GROOVE, VERIZON

Idk why I love this album so much but I think it’s because of the whole soul groove. His voice is so versatile and when he raps he can flow very well. This is a very catchy album.
