CRITIC REVIEWS

NME

Tinashe and her fans were kept waiting a frustratingly long time for ‘Joyride’, but perhaps it was this extra time that gave her the opportunity to craft the album into the sensual, star-ridden offering she’s released.

AllMusic

Nothing here is bound to pass "2 On" in terms of popularity, but the highlights are filled with rich details and seductive hooks.

Exclaim!

Joyride is finally here and it highlights the artist's promise and potential, while, at the same time, leaving us wondering what the wait was about.

The Independent

Joyride is a definite departure from Aquarius and even Nightride – Tinashe opts for moodier songs, less pop hooks and more experimentation.

The Guardian

Tinashe’s long-gestated second album is a mixed bag, best when her coolly focused sexuality is put to the fore.

Vocally, Tinashe is probably more musically adept than half of the artists she emulates. But she won't truly carve out her own space until she figures out who she is.

アートワークの素晴らしさには及ばないもののなかなかいいアルバム。アルバム全体に統一されたムードが感じられて通して聴くのに適している。

Tinashe's Sophomore album is finally out and that's enough reason to be happy. Compared to her previous releases, it's a lot weaker but I appreciate what it's meant to be. The car and journey metaphors sprinkled on a lot of the tracks + the general feel good vibe of the tracks means it's meant to be a fun album and she definitely has a fun, short and sweet album. For me ALL the features made their respective tracks weaker except fro Ty on Me So Bad though French Montana makes up for that with a ... read more
