CRITIC REVIEWS

DIY
As something cooked up on short notice, it’s a glorious postcard from an unprecedented global moment, and a wonderful teaser for what is to come.

Clash
The result is something genuinely startling. Raw, and often quite deliberately unfinished, the lyrics have a bullet point bluntness to them, with Simz aspiring to a level of direct communication other MCs can only marvel at.

Pitchfork

This confinement prevents the EP from reaching GREY Area’s heights, but Drop 6 still contains deeply affecting moments—particularly when Simz lands on cautious, conditional optimism.

NME
While musically not as memorable or gripping as we’ve heard from Simz previously, the stripped-back nature does play to Simz’s strength as a very relatable MC, drawing greater attention instead to her rapid-fire rhymes, earworm hooks and thoughtful turns of phrase.

At just under 13 minutes this release acts as more of an opportunity to check in with Simzy during this weird moment in global history rather than a fully-fledged, meaty project. Having said this, it’s the best isolation project I’ve heard so far.

Yeah, it’s no Grey Area but no one should be expecting something on the level of that because it’s an EP. I found this to be a pack of solid Little Simz songs that are just good. Nothing breathtaking or great but I enjoyed it a lot.

I mean it's great but i was expecting a lot more to follow up grey are which i believe is a masterpiece. It's very hard to follow up something like that though. I feel like everything about GREY area was better than this but let's not focus on the negatives here. We got a nice concise EP here. With some still great rapping ability and flow choices. It's very good. I like it but it'm underwhelmed.

It has some great, raw production and a few really good highlights. But after the rousing success of "GREY Area", one of the best albums of 2019, this EP feels disappointing. Little Simz, despite more of her talent coming through on this EP, suffers from some underwhelming writing that lacks the introspection of her last album.

Вот такого мне хотелось от данной серии ипих, а именно залипательных минималистичных бэнгеров. Да, может быть не слишком обязательных, но с хорошим продакшеном и скилловым перфомансом. Сразу видно, что за плечами Симз уже стоит такой альбом, как «GREY Area». Пока что мой ... read more
