CRITIC REVIEWS

91
Entertainment Weekly

At.Long.Last.A$AP is a fantastically dense hip-hop album, worthy of its association with recent instant classics like Lamar’s To Pimp a Butterfly and the aforementioned Drake surprise album.

80
Complex

All things considered, this is a solid album. Fans of old Rocky will be happy to hear he hasn’t left them behind and new fans will have a plethora of options to choose from.

80
The 405

On A.L.L.A, Lord Flacko's pen-work is cavernous, production multifaceted and theatrics opulent.

80
HipHopDX
This one has the distinction of being an album that will require time to unpack and grasp with more listens. It has such a diversity of sounds, vibes and subject matter that it sets itself apart from Rocky’s previous works.
80
Billboard
This album is more expansive, more inclusive and much deeper, with a palette that dips into blues rock, Wu-Tang Clan, G-Funk, psychedelic folk and more. It’s the perfect experiment -- a confident, well-executed one -- for a format-less, niche-happy, streaming-playlist world.
80
AllHipHop

At.Long.Last.A$AP is a project that shows growth within A$AP Rocky. Although the Harlem rapper rose to stardom from being inspired by southern Hip Hop, his sophomore project is a diverse project with surprising sounds.

80
AllMusic

The bold effort unfolds as it wants and deserves, so think of the album as A$AP in Wonderland, or the cloud rap genre revived and improved, or a sunshine kaleidoscope album à la Prince's Around the World in a Day that also comes with a touching and bittersweet tribute.

80
NME
‘ALLA’ is a thrillingly focused follow-up that betrays its anxieties even as it mostly makes do with extolling the virtues of vice.
80
Exclaim!

A.L.L.A makes the best and most natural use of a diverse cast of cameos since Kanye West's My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.

80
XXL

On At.Long.Last.A$AP., he takes a creative risk and lets the fans reap the rewards. At long last.

80
The Line of Best Fit

At.Long.Last.A$AP feels epochal. It has the strange sense about it of a new rap monument being erected.

80
The Guardian

Some might call it retrograde in the year of To Pimp a Butterfly, but rap is big enough to contain multitudes – including self-regard when it’s this perfectly delivered.

80
NOW Magazine

A raw masterstroke, A.L.L.A. is a depiction of underground millionaire culture that should have "think of the children" conservatives shitting their pants.

78
Pitchfork
At long last, a real sense of identity has begun to coalesce in Rocky’s work.
75
Consequence of Sound

While this record certainly echoes the who’s who of designer brands name-dropped on Long.Live.ASAP, A.L.L.A is Rocky’s “locked in the studio with a sheet of acid” record.

75
A.V. Club
Rocky may not have totally gotten it this time, but he’s getting better. Thus the legend continues.
70
Spin

Brush those lowlights aside and what remains is a glossy, surprising album, albeit one without the obvious radio hits of 2013’s studio debut Long.Live.A$AP.

70
Rolling Stone

At.Long.Last.A$AP takes the gritty East Coast classicism and syrup-drippin' Houston screwiness of his killer 2013 debut, Long.Live.A$AP, and adds an extra level of psychedelic sprawl via a newfound taste for acid.

60
DIY
The strength of ‘A.L.L.A’ is when Rocky dodges the conventional diss tracks and instead tells his story without any strings attached.
60
Tiny Mix Tapes
At 18 tracks, it sweats out ambition. Yet Rocky chooses to forgo elements of that very aspiration altogether through a careful attention paid to not taking himself too seriously, a feature that serves to be one of record’s few saving graces.
60
Clash
As a collected body of work 'At.Long.Last.A$AP' is far from dreadful, but taken as a whole it lacks the elements of depth and star quality that - having set the bar incredibly high with his debut - many expect from A$AP Rocky.
60
Mojo

For the most part A$AP Rocky deftly negotiates the difficult second album hurdle, switching up his braggadocious flows with the nonchalance of an old stager.

50
Pretty Much Amazing

Perhaps the apathy of At Long Last ASAP signals some sort of finality for Rocky as a bonafide threat within contemporary rap music.

50
PopMatters

People will dig for meaning and find it if they want to, but if Live. Love. A$AP. was the start of Rocky’s trip, then At. Long. Last. A$AP. makes for one hell of a disappointing comedown.

The production on this album is some of the best production that has possible ever come out of a hip-hop album

I hate the fact that the reviews on this album are so mediocre. This album is phenomenal and for me Rocky's best work. The whole moody, dark and druggy vibe that the album wants to offer is executed really well. Just chill and listen to this. The album itsself rides u slowly but constantly well from beginning to end. It really feels like a chilling trip to another universe. The production is god tier level I love almost every fcking beat on this, also I DIDNT KNOW WHO JOE FOX WAS, BUT NOW I ... read more

Much stronger lyrically than Flacko's last project. The beats may not be as exciting, but this isn't all about girls and drugs. this is less bragging and more "storytelling" in a way. i felt that Ye was out of place on this album, as his verse wasn't strong at all compared to the other features. not all tracks were great, and some were even hard to listen to (see L$D) but this was far from a sophomore slump. I like the direction A$AP Rocky is heading, and am excited to see where ... read more
