CRITIC REVIEWS

Spin

With such a gratifying front end, it's easy to dismiss Roman Reloaded's subsequent pop tracks as a paying of the piper

74
Paste

While Roman Reloaded may be scatterbrained and uneven, it nevertheless shows Minaj putting her money where her mouth is. 

70
musicOMH

If there was ever an album so utterly representative of current mainstream music trends and an aptitude for nailing itself into the heart of radio playlists, it’s Roman Reloaded.

67
A.V. Club

As it stands it’s an intermittently great, but ultimately scattershot effort that’s undermined by its efforts to please everyone. 

67
Pitchfork

In her quest to avoid becoming just another female rapper, she inadvertently settles for being just another pop star.

60
FACT Magazine

Roman Reloaded feels more satisfying than Pink Friday by some distance: it’s not a classic album, but its contents implicitly argue that the concept of a “classic album” has become irrelevant in 2012 anyway. 

50
NME

With so many duffers, you have to wonder why the album is 19 tracks long

50
Drowned in Sound

Pink Friday: Roman’s Revenge isn’t bad because of Minaj’s cross-dressing it is bad because she often tries on some very banal, characterless outfits.

40
No Ripcord

If Pink Friday’s main fault was that it tried to tick too many boxes, then Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded repeats that mistake and then some.

20
Consequence of Sound

Minaj forgot who she was, odd and proud, in the journey to be not only something she’s not (a stereotypical pop songstress), but something she’s far more interesting than. 

10
PopMatters

If Nicki Minaj were Tracy McGrady, this would be the point in her career where her back gives out and she unceremoniously fades from the highlight reels and marque.

when Nicki said on Roman Holiday "AJAJSKKSNENEKZslskskks IIIIIIII AL KSJSJ HOEEEE", I felt that.

pink friday (the first one) was an actually good Pop Rap album, with catchy songs like Moment 4 Life and Check It Out, and braggadocious bangers like roman's revenge, but pink friday: roman reloaded is just a big let-down.

PF: RR is an album jam packed with bland radio Pop Hits made to chart in the Top 40. it still has some great pop bangers that make me kind of nostalgic like ... read more

I'm re-reviewing this bc my feelings towards this album have changed.

Sure it's extremely poppy and mainstream, but Nicki shows strong passion in this album. She is not making pop bullshit to make money or to chart high, she is making it because she has a genuine love for the music. She is a creative, wacky, unordinary artist who isn't afraid to show her true self to the world, much like Kanye West. This is her pinnacle as far as artistry and is somewhat the equivalent of what MBDTF or Yeezus ... read more

Nicki's second album, although it is quite a radical change, helped her to expand his fan base and to compete with the most popular pop artists of those years such as Katy Perry and Rihanna, at times exceeding them in sales of singles.
I feel that this album is divided into 2 very clear parts and that they are represented in its title: 'Pink Friday' being the more Rap/R&B side and following the formula of her very successful debut album, which would be the first nine tracks of the album. ... read more
