CRITIC REVIEWS

80
AllMusic

Hopefully the powerful Guns will prove to be Chris' breakthrough, since it's easily his best, most enjoyable work.

80
The Needle Drop

Despite some structural shortcomings, Guns is a great work of politically-charged jazz rap.

80
HipHopDX

Quelle doesn’t waste a bar throughout, packing thought into just about everything he says. The scope of the album is impressive, but the artist responsible proves to be more than up to the task, doing his job and then some on one of 2019’s heavier albums thus far.

77
Pitchfork

On Guns, Chris doesn’t just explore gun usage, he examines how words, fear and skin color are weaponized, and how one’s community can dictate their relationship to firearms.

Exclaim!

While this is an album with no shortage of ambition, and one that will certainly make demands on its listeners, their patience will certainly be rewarded by the multitudes that Quelle brings forth on Guns.
