CRITIC REVIEWS

Rolling Stone

A more experimental Future working within modern rap techniques and pushing their boundaries to the blurry edges.

64
Pitchfork

His latest EP proves he’s still a master of melancholic detail, but thematically and sonically, the Atlanta superstar has hit a wall.

64
HipHopDX

SAVE ME, opposed to previous collaborative EPs such as 2016’s Purple Reign with Metro Boomin, feels incomplete for it’s lacking the divine energy felt from previous Future projects.

Highsnobiety

SAVE ME is the first record of a decorated career that suggests fatigue might be setting in.

Exclaim!

Those aforementioned moments of experimentation show a continued development of Future's "Hendrix" alter ego, but there's something to be said for getting to know him over a longer runtime.

Spectrum Culture

Future has long been one of rap’s most consistent artists, but for the first time since his early shots at stardom, he sounds confused.

Consequence of Sound

EDIT: FANTASTIC

As much as I was hoping this would live up to The WIZRD, I wasn't sure how likely it was to exceed it. They're both very different albums; SAVE ME has a measly seven tracks, while The WIZRD has twenty. SAVE ME was tagged as everything from "emo rap" to "trap folk", which made me expect something kind of XXXTentacion-inspired or something equally messy.

...what?

this is future at his most blown out, reverb water boarded, trashy, anemic, and incomprehensible

by track 3 I thought the project had already been running for 30 minutes

and here I was thinking that he was climbing his way back up to relevancy with his last project lol

For some reason this grew straight off me after the second listen. Even though it's easily the most ambitious I've heard Future musically, I just wasn't all that interested most of the time. There are some stellar tracks and hooks though.

favourite tracks: XanaX Damage, Shotgun, Extra
least favourite: Government Official

Summary: Decent-Good
