NME

Taking everything that’s brilliant about Yungblud and amplifying it, album two is Harrison at his most extreme. It’s exactly where he belongs, too. Yungblud’s never seemed more inspiring or vital as he proves himself as one of the most important rock stars around. ‘weird!’ really is wonderful.

Gigwise

YUNGBLUD has indeed struck gold on weird!. The album expertly balances referencing the worst parts of society while taking part in an uninhibited celebration of the self and calling out to fans to do the same.

Clash

A rallying cry for alt-pop insurgency, at its over-sharing best ‘WEIRD!’ firmly places YUNGBLUD as a dazzling Catherine wheel of Top 40 deviancy.

Pitchfork
The upstart English pop-punk star’s second album buries his charm in clumsy genre experimentation, clichéd lyrics, and unearned bluster.

The Arts Desk

Pop-punky Brit singer's second album sounds fizzy and enormous but lacks rebel spirit.

Kerrang!

For all but those with the sweetest tooth, Weird! is a collection of good moments disappointingly hidden under an avalanche of sugar.

Yeah you are weird when you are a walmart matty healy that tries too hard to look like billie joe armstrong. You also fail miserably in sounding like gerard way.

You are not different and you are not weird. This is the most generic album that I've listened to in a long time.

No wonder the class thot who thinks she is special tags him on ig.

Best aspect: melody
Worst aspects: production and vocals

Favourite tracks: Love Song, God Save Me, But Don't Drown Me Out

I'm guessing a 14 year old emo girl runs NME?

I said before that I was going to seriously review this as I've seen only shitposts for this, but holy shit this was so bad I couldn't properly review it.

I can't stress this enough.

DO NOT LISTEN TO THIS. IT IS NOT ENJOYABLE IN THE SLIGHTEST.

Yungblud brings nothing new to the table, except for his annoying ass vocals. He has 0 strong-suits, his songs are overproduced, and I have to mention again, the VOCALS ARE HORRID. If you can look behind ... read more

I haven’t listened to anything by yungblud and I’m gonna keep it that way. Nothing you can do or say will make me listen to this.

I don't know. Melanie Martinez with a dick.

He just needs to stop writing as if he's 14 and see the world as it really is. And you also need to grow up guys, there's a lot worse from really bad people for you to hate around.

(and he will be sued by Oasis, Charity is Don't Look Back in Anger for strange teenagers)

Now if she touches like this, will you touch her right back? Now if she moves like this, will you move her like that?
~Yungblud feat. Machine Gun Kelly, 2020.
