Inspired by Greek mythology, this sprawling record sees Uzi confirm his status as a modern great whose releases act as timestamps for rap.
The Philly rapper has evolved into an untouchable pop artist in sound and style. With deliriously good rapping and immaculate production, Uzi makes an event album live up to its name.
Consequence of Sound

He sounds alert, refreshed, and sometimes thrilled on Eternal Atake, shifting between cadences and registers with the manic dexterity of Sada Baby.

Rolling Stone

Eternal Atake is Lil Uzi Vert’s best album yet, with a cohesiveness, slick concept, and performance that justifies every ounce of hype.

Just as Dr. Dre bent and damn near broke the rules of rap for the greater good in the early stages of his career, Lil Uzi Vert is crusading to do the same.

While Uzi is lyrically light years behind Kendrick Lamar, J Cole or even contemporary 21 Savage, he's an undeniably versatile performer on Eternal Atake.

Even though it's a lengthy journey and some of the songs start to feel similar, nothing here is filler.
The Needle Drop

For all its conceptual pretense, Eternal Atake is little more than a run-of-the-mill trap album.

I. DON'T. SEE. THE. HYPE. Like seriously, is that what we waited 4 years for? Like bruhhhh this shit is average af, it's not all bad but tracks like POP, you better move, Secure the bag are so fucking ass with weird deliveries and mediocre beats. It has some bops here and there but for the most part it's soo mid. Not a big fan, still prefer 2015 luv
However, it's still too early to judge the album completely, but I'm so disappointed and prolly won't be listening this a lot

A bumpy, but fun ride. Eternal Atake is a very good album. But after almost 3 years of hype it doesn't really live up to expectations, we were expecting a trap odyssey with more trance-like production but we got a very solid by the numbers Uzi album. And I'm fine with that.
Lil Uzi Vert answers Playboi Carti by delivering his own Die Lit after a long wait

Trust me, I had no interest in this album from the singles, but almost every song on here shows the pure power of not overthinking, and going with your musical instinct. As a result, Uzi keeps songs engaging by sometimes just geeking out, and repeating a single phrase, or he has a ridiculous line that stands out.

This is also the first Uzi project where the common theme is strongly stood by. The space theme is ... read more

Ladies and gentlemen, be careful! Unidentified Soundcloud Rapper Lil Uzi Vert is heading straight to Earth to impose his cosmic bars by invading your speakers and headphones. Look, this fireball coming towards us, no doubt, it's him!

Holy crap! Uzi is coming from the planet Atake with his biggest spaceship. His irritating voice rises to high pitched tones without permission to land and his flow is so out of sync, he's completely out of time and space. Uzi ... read more
So on my first listen I'm just gonna go ahead and say this is by far Uzi's best project and it's one of the funnest albums I've listened to in a long time.

The whole atmosphere of this album is otherworldly and futuristic in terms of production, I like the consistency of it and it still has the same Lil Uzi feel from projects like Luv Is Rage 2 and Lil Uzi Vert vs the World. Although not being a fully consistent album with three songs I don't care for it's a solid tracklist. Uzi handles ... read more
