JPEGMAFIA’s third album is his most accomplished record yet. Sure, it might not slap you in the face quite like ‘Veteran’, but there’s far more invention here – and it seems like the kind of album created for multiple listens on headphones.

Any which way I look at it, I see in its 45 minutes all the signs of a true classic, an album whose daring attitude and commitment to odd sonic luxuries future emissaries of the great tradition of experimental hip-hop music should only hope to emulate.


Veteran was a beautifully disturbing album, and All My Heroes Are Cornballs is an even better hodgepodge of empowered tumult.

The Line of Best Fit

On All My Heroes Are Cornballs, Peggy’s process from production to release has been fresher and faster, and in turn the songs feel more raw, less tweaked with and the conflict he creates between the melody and rhythm hit harder.

After listening to ‘All My Heroes Are Cornballs’ it could be described as anything but disappointing. Peggy has filled it full of the same playful bounce, and reactionary lyrics, that made ‘Veteran’ such a powerful and intoxicating listen.
The Skinny

For those not attuned to Peggy’s ability to tap into the zeitgeist, All My Heroes Are Cornballs won’t provide a lyrical turning point. But as a showcase for his skills as a producer, it should win over even the most dyed in the wool critics.

Tiny Mix Tapes

All My Heroes Are Cornballs serves as an electronic manifesto for his fans, guerilla warfare of the auditory kind.

DAMN PEGGY, was I supposed to be disappointed with this? Instructions unclear, accidentally married Morrissey in the Chapel O' Love.

JPEGMAFIA's latest full-length studio album, following his major breakout project, Veteran, is a step in a very interesting direction to say the least.

If there's one thing I appreciate about Hendricks' music up until this point, is just how unpredictable the man is while still keeping an engaging album experience. JPEGMAFIA is genuinely one of the most ... read more
A rap shitpost come to life, complete with dissonant, bombastic, genre-bending production rivaling 1000 gecs, satirical autotune interpolations of pop songs, and unbridled, wild energy exuding from every track.

If there's one thing that's certain about this album, it's not boring. It may not be genius or refined but it's pretty damn interesting to listen to and Hendricks makes sure every track is memorable for some odd reason or another.
Danny's going to have a tough ass time to get aoty this year. Even tougher than 2016. My ears have been purified.
Well, that was a disappointment...

Jesus Forgive Me, I Am A Thot was not a track I was a big fan of but it was decent enough for me to be hyped for the album. This caused me to worry a bit about the style Peggy was going for but I was hoping something good nevertheless. After that, I saw his video on YouTube with Kenny Beats, where he said the album was unedited and raw. That increased my preoccupation. Still, hyped for the album.

But now it's 13/09/2019 and we finally got the album... I'm ... read more
i’m going to put the same amount of effort into this review as Peggy put into this album. While the whole atmosphere of it, along with most of the production, is pretty good, everything sounds unfinished and sloppy. I always understand why artists want to change things up and pursue different sounds, but this is not for me. Despite it not really being my thing, I can see JPEGMAFIA’s progression and All My Heroes Are Cornballs still gives me very high hopes for his future ... read more
