2013: Hangs out with Minecraft YouTubers
2018: Name-drops Anthony Fantano
2019: Shoves Ozzy Osbourne into a trap rap song and "While I'm takin’ a shit, look at the plaques on the wall"

Yeah guys, this Post Malone dude is really fucking innovative! Can't wait to hear him shove Merzbow next to Lil Tecca rapping over a flute beat on the next album!

I've never been a big fan of Post Malone at all, but he did win me over quite a bit with his last full-length effort, B&B! As a ... read more

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.

Post Malone is Charli XCX for the straights.

...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

Kids use their phones while shitting. Men read shanpoo ingredients. Posty "looks at his plaques when he shits."

To be honest, I was kinda scared that this will be awful because of the singles, and my first reaction to the tracklisting was like this : " Why the fuck is there a Future X Halsey, a Meek Mill X Lil Baby, and a Post X Dababy? And how can you unironically put the song Wow. as an outro for an album called Hollywood's Bleeding?."

And now that I've listened to the ... read more

Postys most bland and uninspired record to date.

This thing is chocked full of boring ass yet somehow monolithic pop rap bangers. The features feel super out of place. Having songs like “Wow” and “Sunflower” on the record do absolutely nothing to help it. This whole thing is just a mess honestly. There is no sense of organization and no sense of purpose other than sales that I can find. I cant think of a single meaningful message that Posty conveyed on this record. He ... read more

Something just isn't right...

I don't really know why, but I didn't enjoy this as much as his last album. There wasn't a single track I thought was too interesting in any way. Even for Post Malone standards, this just sounded incredibly generic and by-the-numbers. With Beerbongs and Bentleys, even with it being longer than this album there were some absolute standout tracks on it, some really fun druggy bangers and some incredibly catchy hooks. It was just all around an incredibly fun album. ... read more

Wow, this is boring...
I have never really enjoyed any album from Post Malone and I didn't care for this one either, but I decided to check it out, because the singles weren't actually that bad.

After listening to it I still think that Austin's music is not for me. Some songs on here feature really bland and lifeless trap beats with Post's vocals that sound pretty much the same on all of them; Other songs are more of a rock and pop tunes, but they all are reallly uninteresting. However, I ... read more

Post Malone is one of the most consistent and inconsistent popular artists of this decade. I like the guy. He seems to be just having fun and not trying to take himself too seriously. In 2015 and 2016, I could not stand it because of his awful debut, "Stoney". Then 2017, we had "beerbongs & bentleys", eventually became one of my favorite emo rap albums, containing Posty's best songs such as "Candy Paint." Malone is one of my favorite popular artists and at the ... read more

Hollywood is Bleeding is made up of songs that never quite reach the heights of B&B (besides Goodbyes) nor the lows of that album. What it is is a pleasant album that sees Post making his most vocally intense and mainstream material yet. I came out of this a bit underwhelmed as my high expectations after the release of Goodbyes were not met, but the target audience will love it and i can see it growing on me. For that reason, I curve belled the score to account for my predicted enjoyment in ... read more

NME is certified high at this point. Literally at what point in this album does Posty sound like Julian Casablancas or '70s FM radio?

This whole project is one of the biggest snoozefests I've heard all year. Nothing about it is strikingly bad, per se, but it's all just so monotonous. Even with the help of people like DaBaby, Ozzy Osbourne, Travis Scott, SZA, Young Thug, Kanye West, and even Josh Tillman, this project fails to generate anything even slightly interesting outside of a few of the ... read more

Alright, this is a mess. Whereas "beerbongs & bentleys" was a collection of druggy trap bangers with some of the catchiest pop hooks this part of the decade, "Hollywood's Bleeding" feels like a poorly planned set of ideas that range from great to bland. There are definitely some tracks that I really liked, though. "Circles" is a great indie pop track with a solid bass groove and gorgeous vocal melodies, the title track is a great opener and "Take What You ... read more

It goes pretty hard, bro.

When I jump into a new Post project, I'm not really expecting ambitious statements or tracks with 5000 man hours poured into them, that's just not him.

I really liked this one, and wouldn't mind listening to whatever he's got for the future.

From looks of it, this album is probably going to get some pretty polarizing reviews. For the most part I enjoyed myself during HB and there’s definitely some good moments and honestly those moments come from Post himself as I think he’s lyrically and vocally gotten stronger. There’s a good balance between the usual pop songs and spacey, druggy, atmospheric songs which is good to see as well.

However there’s a few problems that bring the album down such as the songs ... read more

An album in which there are bright flashes of crisp production but a complete lack of versatility, creativity, and genuinity.

Sonically, there are at least some pretty strong moments here. The album has a consistent vibe and doesn't ever necessarily sound poor. It would be a decent album to put on in the background of a party and allow to keep the energy up. However this is really the major praise I have for this record.

The production inevitably falls into the realm of hollow, as the ... read more

This pretty much confirms to me that I'll never understand Post Malone's appeal. This album could not be less interesting to me. There is absolutely nothing impressive here besides for the production being somewhat nice and a COUPLE of the beats getting a head bob out of me. But man, everything else about this album sucks. Post Malone is so nondescript as a lyricist and rapper. There's no real emotion or soul to these songs, it's just one flat, monotone trap beat after another. No real flow or ... read more

Mediocre

Post Malone comes out with one of the most versatile records in his career, mainly switching from sad rap tracks to bouncy rock anthems. The track list is very miss-matched and jumbled, making the overall experience feel even more bloated than it already is. Some tracks are seriously great, but everything else is generically boring and redundant.

I'd call myself a Post Malone fan. Sure he's overrated as hell but come on...the man knows how to write a catchy pop tune. He's also just a cool guy that I've been familiar with since way back in his days with the SkyDoesMinecraft gang. Beerbong's & Bentley's was one of my favorite albums of last year, so I really wanted this project to at least match up with that.

Sigh...but it didn't. While there were a handful of tracks I really liked, Hollywood's Bleeding is mostly a mixed bag of ... read more

I audibly laughed when I saw the tracklist and saw that Ozzy was featured. Overall, I was just really feeling a stinker coming up. God, I was wrong. This is great hip pop. There are a couple tossaway tracks on here, but for the most part the aesthetic stays consistent and vibrant. The couple of tracks where Posties vocals go off the wall are great. Yeah, Post is definitely more pop than ever, but I really don’t care. He’s still doing what he wants and doing it well, and that’s ... read more

It’s alright, the title track is a really great opener, when I heard it I was excited to hear the rest of the album but unfortunately, most of it feels flat. I love post’s voice but it’s starting to get a little boring and lose its magic after 3 albums. The lyricism is nothing special, clever bars here and there but nothing stand out tbh. The production is good but again, nothing really stands out besides maybe the track produced by Kanye. Some of the features on this album ... read more

Post Malone makes one of the most generic albums of the year. While it's not like Stoney that every single song sounded like a terrible extension of one long song, there is still a lot of filler that could have not been included on the tracklist. There aren't any above average songs from Posty on this one unlike Beerbongs and Bentleys which had quite a few amazing tracks. The closest I could see this album coming to an above average track is Goodbyes. Overall a mediocre project.
