CRITIC REVIEWS

80
NME

This will be the moment that solidifies his status as one of rap’s most exciting new stars.

78
HipHopDX

Genre-blending albums are not easy to pull off and for that, Juice WRLD should be given credit. From the seemingly sincere lyrics to the equally candid delivery, Juice truly goes with his gut in whichever way.

70
Rolling Stone

While his melodrama tends to grow old over the course of a 22-track, 72-minute album, it is captivating in small doses.

68
Pitchfork

Throughout Death Race For Love’s 72 minutes ... Juice WRLD’s lyrics fall into two categories. Fifty percent of the lyrics are bad and the other 50 percent are also bad, but then they get stuck in your head and ultimately turn good.

60
The Guardian

His second album in a year is excessively long, which smacks of flogging the emo-rap horse before it buckles.

60
The Needle Drop

Death Race for Love delivers plenty of quality emo raps before succumbing to long album syndrome.

50
Consequence of Sound

Success hasn’t been the Band-Aid Juice’s heart needed, and these new sad songs don’t quite hit the soul like previous ones did.

50
Highsnobiety

As a showcase for Juice WRLD’s ambition and his desire to expand his sound, Death Race deserves praise. But he still hasn’t figured out a way to make any of those other personas as invigorating as the heartbroken, bitter one that made him a star.

PopMatters

The type of personality drawn in by a hyperviolent fantasy demolition derby headed up by a killer clown is likely very similar to that which most closely identifies with Juice WRLD's unfocused emotional ramblings.

25
The 405

Death Race For Love acts as a preemptive fire sale for any scrap of an idea he has. The 22 tracks across 72 minutes start off as digestible before turning so rancid, the urge to reach for the Listerine is strong by the time it all wraps up.

No self-made rapper with an actual come up releases three major label albums less than a year after they get one big soundcloud hit. Adam22 and other culture propagandists hyped this guy up and now he's on the charts. The labels saw Lil Peep's death as a sign that there was money to be made in emo rap and it was pushed to the mainstream in the months following his death. Interscope is getting away with shit like this now and the market is totally cool with it.

I work at a middle school full of angsty tik tok making preteens, I think that I am more than justified in saying that I don't have the highest expectations for this album

Review: I came into this with very low expectations, and I guess you could say they were slightly exceeded. As soon as I saw the run time on this thing, I knew it was gonna be the emo-rap version of Scorpion, which it was. What I mean by that, is that this record was full of half assed bullshit tracks with poor mixing and ... read more

Why did we ever make this guy a thing? I'm beyond pissed that he tricked me into listening to this album because of the dope cover art.
