Pitchfork
The Japanese fashion designer’s passion project is characteristically stylish and star-studded, featuring contributions from Pharrell, Kanye West, Tyler the Creator, and the late Pop Smoke.

The album has more misses than hits, and even the better songs are by and large footnotes for Nigo’s famous friends. It’s clear this A-list team fails to live up to the standard Nigo has set in fashion.

This star-studded affair ends up being as hit-or-miss as one would expect, but the best tracks make it worthwhile for fans of any of the artists involved.

This is a pretty enjoyable collection of tracks with some great guests and solid (for the most part) production from Pharrell, even if it can be kind of hit or miss.

If this was a 5 - 6 songs EP this rating would be a lot higher, there's some pretty great bangers in here, but not everything hits like I'd wish I guess.

Sad that the Clipse joint didn't do much for me.

Yo, Paper Plates is ass water bro, that shit is horrendous wtf.

Pretty interesting collection of hip-hop tracks with various features. Some of them incredible, some of them OK. The production is pretty awesome I will say. All in all, worth checking out.

This stuff is good. Best song is Hear Me Clearly.

Arguably the biggest hit or miss album of the year. Only really about 3 tracks warrant another the listen. The rest is a poorly mixed and produced mess that leaves the listener questioning why they weren't listening to something else instead.
