CRITIC REVIEWS

Kerrang!

Calm and collected when it needs to be but by no means lacking in heart and passion, this album is a fine collection of songs by an artist intent on forging her own path. It feels like there’s no stopping WILLOW’s rise.

The Line of Best Fit

As carefree as it is frustrated, as playful as it is temperamental, WILLOW’s lately I feel EVERYTHING is a straight up lively hit of jaded emo bangers that will have a new generation of listeners whipping their hair back and forth.

80
The Independent

Her lyrics have a stream-of-consciousness style, as though she’s in the middle of composing a message to a friend or partner. The delight she takes in performing these songs is palpable.

80
NME

It was a risky move, switching from conscious R&B star to grungy punk beau, but WILLOW has knocked all doubts out of the park – again.

80
AllMusic

Initially thought to be a purely pop-punk exercise, Lately reveals itself as something more moody and angsty, the cathartic outburst of a young artist letting off some steam in a crazy world where she has to navigate regular human emotions and relationship woes against a backdrop of fame and privilege.

Clash

At just 26 minutes long, 'Lately I Feel Everything' is hardly a profound or even prolonged experience ... Overall though, hardly anything is forced and it all feels well presented and devilishly melodic.

70
Exclaim!

It's inevitable that lately i feel EVERYTHING will be relentlessly compared to its influences and predecessors, but Willow manages to pay homage to the subculture while putting her own spin on it.

70
Gigwise

Lately I feel EVERYTHING is an extremely well-crafted foray into pop-punk.

70
FLOOD Magazine

Despite the awkward tracking, lately I feel EVERYTHING still feels like a major success. For an artist whose first single was an ode to headbanging, Willow feels more comfortable with herself than ever before while screaming about embracing imperfection and growth.

The Forty-Five
Willow Smith whips her guitar back and forth on her fourth solo album, enlisting Travis Barker, Avril Lavigne, and Tierra Whack for a true pop-punk, alt-rock treat.

Pitchfork

Willow’s fourth solo album continues to unpack her lifelong struggles with the extremes of human emotion, using a trove of pop-rock stylings from nu-metal to pop-punk to somewhat mixed effect.

60
Crack Magazine

Willow achieves what so much of pop-punk has aspired to: catchy melodies that are easy to listen to, and even easier to wail along to.

60
The Arts Desk
With her fourth album, Willow moves towards a more caustic palette of sound, which is ear-pleasing, but the whole thing still sounds plastic and edgelessly mainstream
60
Spectrum Culture
Willow may not be completely in over her head now, but there remains a sense of inconsistency that accentuates how much growing she has to do.

Fruto da absorção natural de suas influências, WILLOW em 'lately i feel EVERYTHING' escorrega em vários momentos, mas não cai em nenhum deles.

WILLOW sabe trabalhar muito bem suas influências e ela deixa isso claro ao abordar com maturidade alguns temas batidos dos quais sempre se fizeram presentes na temática cujo o seu novo disco, 'lately i feel EVERYTHING' é guiado, rendendo ótimos destaques no meio de instantes de pura insanidade ... read more

Willow, a voice made for R&B and that somehow married EXTREMELY WELL in a punk sound.
This album managed to mix several elements from other genres and make something with its own characteristics. As much as it has a punk sound as its main vein, here we have elements of Nu-Metal, often Dream Pop, R&B, and her voice helped A LOT to make everything match perfectly.

I got to know Willow through their 2019 album Willow, and I was somewhat scared by the musical quality there. Quite honestly, ... read more

Willow's early 2000's rock experiment is the best call she ever did in her career. Not only the genre suits her voice so damn well, everything about this record exudes authenticity, Willow sounds confident and the production carries her all the way there, to that great point she's been looking for since her first album. Bringing Travis Barker to the table she delivered one of the best pop punk songs of the last 10 years with 't r a n s p a r e n t s o u l', he's also on 3 other tracks (all ... read more

Willow’s transition into pop-punk isn’t perfect, but it’s pretty solid and has some really enjoyable moments.

Willow was not an artist that was really on my radar, but I heard the single “t r a s p a r e n t s o u l” with Travis Barker earlier this year and was really impressed. I thought it was a great pop-punk track with a great instrumental and catchy refrain. I thought Willow’s vocals were the weakest part, but it didn’t really take away from the ... read more

They say if you say "travis barker" for 5 times in front of the mirror he appears in your house with a drum kit.

First of all, black women in punk rock? I'm here for it. As someone who only knows willow smith as an actor and also will smith's daughter, this is my first time listening to her music but i'm impressed especially because this is great for an artist who used to make music in a completely different genre. But i have to point out that there were some fillers in this record ... read more
