Clash

‘All Over The Place’ swaps the focussed UK rap of his debut for something broader, balancing soulful guests and slick production in the process. While not everything here excels, it’s a bold record and cements KSI’s place as a key player in UK music.

The Independent

At times ... All Over The Place flails in the absence of a singular distinct voice. Portions of the album feel anonymous – a mushy amalgamation that sounds vaguely like all trap-pop in the charts right now.

The Observer

The YouTuber’s genre-hopping second album is let down by corny lyrics.

NME

This second stab at musical longevity is exactly what it says on the label: all over the place. But at this point in his musical career, that’s not necessarily a bad thing.

KSI doesn’t necessarily disappoint with his newest album All Over The Place: there are some good tracks ... Realistically though, the album is lacking both in the majority of its features and overall execution. Like its predecessor, it's a bit of fun and it's...fine.

For better or worse, All Over the Place lives up to its title.

It may deliver on its promise from it’s name “All Over The Place”, but it seems that KSI barely makes any artistic growth and in some aspects takes a step back and puts himself in a strange position in the industry. The sophomore effort by KSI tried to pick too much more than it could chew and ended up lacking in most fronts.

Rather than digging into what made this album not reach out to what it looked for, I will be talking about how improvements can be made. To go into the ... read more

All Over The Place lives up to its title.

I had heard of KSI as a YouTuber, but I didn’t actually watch his videos and didn’t really know who he was until he started releasing music. When he released “Dissimulation” I was intrigued, as I saw some notable features and wondered what the YouTuber turned musician would sound like. And it was about what I expected it would be: a mediocre album with generic production, some boring performances from KSI, and phoned-in ... read more

'All Over the Place' is KSI's sophomore album and it's such a disappointment, feeling like a rushed project with a lack of effort from KSI. The singles to the album were solid, teasing at a new direction as KSI had moved more towards the pop genre from the rap genre, a change I wasn't a huge fan of initially but grew on me as the singles dropped. I do have to appreciate the experimentation that KSI attempts on a few songs such as 'Patience' and 'No Time' as those honestly turn out to be the ... read more

KSI's "All Over the Place" is...yeah, not good at all. All the things that were problematic about "Dissimulation", a lifeless, albeit promising release from the British artist, are still largely prevalent here. But, KSI seems to crank up these problems even more, making it actually a step down from his second release. I mean, the tracks on this project are so, so boring, not leaving their comfort zone for even a second. The beats are incredibly generic and immediately ... read more
