CRITIC REVIEWS

AllMusic

Just as potent and lasting as Fearless and Love Me Back, Reality Show completes one of the most impressive first-three-album runs.

Pitchfork

アメリカを代表するR&B歌姫が約5年ぶりにリリースした新作。これが長いブランクを全く感じさせないエネルギッシュかつバラエティ豊かな一枚に。中でもMeek Millのクールなバースが映えるM2は必聴。

Reality Show is a showstopper. With an infectious vocal style, Sullivan is at pure ease under every demanding pulse that shoots from her veins and into the singer's powerfully gorgeous record.
