NME
At times he sounds like Julian Casablancas. At others he sounds like '70s FM radio. This accomplished and eclectic record, though, could only come from Post Malone.

Rolling Stone

The rapper’s third album further demonstrates his gift for turning dreamy darkness into Top 40 gold.

AllMusic

More well-executed than his previous releases and undeniably catchy, Hollywood's Bleeding is a huge step forward for the guarded superstar, one that doesn't sacrifice the essential elements that made him such a surprise hitmaker, and pushes him even further into the pop-savvy landscape where he belongs.

Clash

Post Malone still provides us with a sprinkling of the classics: bitches, butts and Millie on wrists, it’s appeasing. But for the most part, he created an insightful and eclectic record which is a testament to his versatility and willingness to do exactly what he wants.

HipHopDX

Overall, Hollywood’s Bleeding is a step up from his lackluster sophomore record. That being said, its cohesion ultimately gets overshadowed by the random array of guests.

Pitchfork

The divisive pop star still gets bogged down in melancholy, but the charm of Post Malone’s third album is in his versatile voice and his ability to make a great hook inside pretty much any song.

Consequence of Sound

Hollywood’s Bleeding is immediately Post Malone’s most listenable work and may well be the catchiest album you hear in 2019, and that includes Taylor Swift.

What did y'all seriously expect? Why do y'all expect artistic integrity from a Post Malone album. I'm here for pop tunes, and I get pop tunes. BTW that Travis, Posty and Ozzy track was way better than it needed to be.

...Fuck it, Stoney was better.

I'd let Post Malone fuck me. Well, at lest with his last record, an album I really honestly enjoyed. It was an album that paired it's repetitive (if we are being honest here) pop tenancies with sharp, catchy and solid song writing, and a uniquely melancholic and interesting vocal delivery that showed great potential. Was there filler for days, and the 18 track length didn't feel justified? Yeah, but it also had such amazing pop tracks that these could be ... read more

So after listening to this like 3 times, I feel that I have a pretty good grasp on what I think. It's definitely a mixed bag. This album is an absolute mess of ideas. It's indie one second trap the next, oh and one there's an orchestral interlude. Anyways, if you ignore the fact that this is like a playlist of a bunch of random songs, it has some good things about it. The super dramatic opener and title track is really good, Posty's vocal performance is really impressive, especially the way he ... read more

EDIT: 60 -> 85

Over the years I've learned to love this album, most of these songs are either very good or alright besides the few BIG duds (I'm Gonna Be, Internet, I Know, Myself). I can't even count the amount of times I've listened to this album over the past few years as a whole, not just track for track which is impressive for me.

The amount of times I've had multiple tracks of this album engraved in my brain is not something to laugh at, this is probably my favourite Post Malone ... read more

this is number 1 on my post malone rated list (updated: 2022) just because of how awesome the songs are.
