CRITIC REVIEWS

Exclaim!

If 7G was the vast orchard, the diminutively-titled Apple is its ultimate issue, the most fully realized version yet of Cook's iconoclastic take on pop, polished to a sheen.

80
Clash

Slimmed down to forty minutes split between ten tracks, Apple has the feel of one cohesive whole when compared to 7G’s daunting monolith.

The Line of Best Fit

In the way that 7G meticulously unpicked Cook’s innards so fans could see the master’s mind at work, Apple weighs out the specifics and pours them into the meting pot.

Loud and Quiet

Cook is clearly a master of sonic manipulation, but at times Apple proves that the old-fangled classical skills aren’t beyond him either.

Though sprinkled with bops, ‘Apple’ doesn’t pack the expected punch.

Who would have thought A.G. would follow up his 7777777 hour long debut album with a tutorial on how to smoke weed out of an apple????

The singles are a good spread of the sound of Apple, ... read more

Prior to 7G, I, and I’m sure most people, only ever heard A.G.’s production through Charli XCX tracks. Tracks which were all phenomenally produced. So I was expecting quite a bit from Cook. But ‘Apple’ is not what I expected at all, and I think DIY said it best: “Though sprinkled with bops, ‘Apple’ doesn’t pack the expected punch.” That being said, those aforementioned bops are bops and can’t be ignored. It’s just, I wished the ... read more

I gave this album a listen due the pure obnoxiousness of Xxoplex (which I love), I didn't expect A.G Cook to sing or have vocals on his album since I knew him as a producer.
Apple has a lot of ideas maybe to much for its own good, as a producer and the backbone of pc music; but I see him more a backstage director then the main actor.
The project still has its highlights and low-points too like the lyrics are quite simple.
