CRITIC REVIEWS

90
Highsnobiety

Even if Future doesn’t completely rewrite the formula on The WIZRD, there’s still plenty signs of artistic growth.

80
XXL

Diehard Future fans, of which there are legion, will be satisfied. But at 20 tracks, The Wizrd runs overlong.

75
Consequence of Sound

If there’s anyone who for some reason hasn’t listened to Future until now, The WIZRD is the perfect project for them to begin their adventure into the rapper’s multicolored discography.

72
HipHopDX

On The WZRD, he spends most his time refining his formula or simply being lazy. Either way, it’s clear that Future is way too comfortable.

70
The Needle Drop

While not Future's most cutting-edge release, The WIZRD is packed with great production, sticky hooks, and consistently electrifying vocal performances from Future himself.

70
Rolling Stone

The album that resulted is by turns dark, cocky, measured and angry. Its 20 songs sound like the final gasp of Future’s past depravity, undercut by his need to solidify his standing as one of the most influential artists of the last decade.

70
Pitchfork

While there’s plenty of his melancholic, drug-induced staples, what you won’t find here is the Atlanta rapper stretching or surprising himself.

70
PopMatters

Though The Wizrd does run too long (as tends to be the norm nowadays), the bangers here are bangers and make this album exciting on every repeated listen.

60
Clash

The world of hip-hop and rap is changing and, while Future’s pattern works well, it becomes slightly repetitive with every listen.

60
NOW Magazine

Where the project falls short is in the handful of filler tracks that pollute the listening experience, including the repetitive Temptation, F&N and Overdose. Yet it still counts as a victory for Future.

60
Spectrum Culture

Future hasn’t felt much need to deviate from his sound in the last half-decade, so the quality of his work has remained consistent as the surprise factor dwindles.

58
Pretty Much Amazing

Future was never quite the artist who could sustain the hour-plus he persistently demands from listeners, and it’s becoming clear that he might not ever get there.

40
NME

On his seventh album, Future is mired in this past. Although ‘The Wizrd’ makes concessions to rap's move towards greater introspection, these 20 tracks largely draw on the same, tired formula he's been rolling out since 2012's 'Pluto'.

30
God Is in the TV

It’s rendered nigh on unlistenable by an obsession with vocoders that would disturb even the most avid collector of other people’s blisters.

Future's refusal to grow is a tragedy

My disappointment is immense. Barely any stand out tracks. Production ranges from boring to bad. Future and his team are just going through the motions on this one. I had relatively high expectations for this due to how much I enjoyed Beastmode2, but no, we got a playlist of filler from the vault. This is why Future's relevance is diminishing.

"The WIZRD" is easily the best Future solo album since "EVOL". While it doesn't offer anything outside the usual Future sound; there is a great selection of instrumentals, catchy songs and consistent performances that it makes for a lengthy but very enjoyable listen to an artist that is still very much in his 'prime' trap era.

When a Future song clicks with you, it really clicks. I was worried that Future was moving further and further away from what initially made him ... read more
