CRITIC REVIEWS

The Line of Best Fit

This posthumous release, intended to bring together everything Juice was working on before his death, is both a celebration and a standing document to the intricate mind he truly was, and it indeed does justice to a unique mind.

Clash

'Legends Never Die' is poetic, prophetic and poignant.

80
AllMusic

Legends Never Die is as strong a collection of Juice WRLD songs as any, with already-searing songs made more intense by the shadow of their departed creator looming over the album.

HipHopDX
His exact wishes for a post-death album might never be known, but this avoids feeling exploitative.
71
Pitchfork

The Chicago artist’s first posthumous release doesn’t feel like a final goodbye, but instead a continued look inside his world. It’s bleak and beautiful.

70
The Needle Drop

Legends Never Die effectively honors Juice WRLD's style and legacy.

70
Rolling Stone

The album shines brightest when Juice stops navel-gazing, when he tempers his fatalism with a sense of hope and togetherness, the yang to his depressive yin.

NME

Jarad Higgins was brilliant at conveying adolescent melodrama. Too bad this 21-track collection stutters and starts without him at the helm.

The Guardian

Barely 21, Juice WRLD was only just coming into his own as a man and artist, his talent still taking shape as he matured. Legends Never Die reveals a glum ringleader still finding himself.

I mean it’s definitely better than most posthumous releases that have been coming out as of late, but Juice’s stuff wasn’t that amazing to begin with.

Still, this dude was undeniably influential and it’s sad to see anyone go so young. :/

Legends Never Die is finally here, the posthumous album from the late Juice WRLD, an album that I was pretty sceptical about when going into it. I liked a lot of Juice WRLD tracks, he had a potential that most Emo rappers usually underutilised or squander, he was capable of putting out catchy hits most of which were freestyled, but why would I be sceptical? Well, Juice WRLD was never an album artist for me, I liked a lot of tracks from his albums but every time I listened to a Juice WRLD ... read more

JuiceWrld was the soundtrack to some of the happiest years of my life & I hold his debut record in very high regard.
I just have to say: i’m sick of posthumous albums. Very rarely do they actually portray what was originally intended. Mac Miller will be the golden standard for years but Circles was almost completed and Mac had a vision for that when he passed.
Some of these production choices on Legends Never Die are so anti-JuiceWrld its sort of comical. And ... read more

First half was kinda weak but I think the second half did the trick.

The interludes are really corny, but if you brush those aside this actually feels like a complete Juice WRLD album/passion project and not a record label cash grab. For that, I commend this highly. This is a great sendoff to Juice, and despite some duds (whoever let Marshmello on this... why), I thoroughly enjoyed this. RIP Jarad, I never was a huge fan of your stuff but you were really gone too soon. Godspeed sir.
