CRITIC REVIEWS

HipHopDX

Where its predecessor felt unfocused and distracted, Donda 2 hones in on every emotion and insecurity that’s arisen during his split with Kim Kardashian West.

Exclaim!
Even in the eyes of his die-hard fans, this feels like an accurate indicator of a project that will ultimately play in the same sandbox, albeit with some changed instrumentation and β€” hopefully β€” fleshed out songs.

Pitchfork
Released exclusively on a device called the Stem Player, the first version of Kanye’s 11th album is lackluster and undercooked. It does not bode well for any future updates or revamps.

The Guardian
Flashes of genius from the artist formerly known as Kanye West are lost amid unrefined production and tedious barbs at his estranged wife.

The Line of Best Fit

Ultimately ... Donda 2 is a complex of lacklustre ambling beats twinned with sluggish energy, only occasionally piquing (“We Did It”, “Too Easy”, "Pablo").

The Telegraph
The rapper-producer's creative hot streak stalls with a shambolic, miserable album fuelled by bitterness – and not much else.

A man who needs no introduction, Kanye West and I have had a complex relationship. He’s made music that I loved, he’s made music that I hated, he began the 2010’s with what I think to be one of the best albums of the decade, he ended the 2010’s with one of the worst albums of that same decade. However, album wise, he began the 2020’s with an artistic bounce back with 2021’s “Donda”, named after West’s late mother. I was more critical of the ... read more

Not even the biggest Ye fan can convince me that this album is good. What a fucking mess. I understand that Donda is bloated and sometimes has some tracks that are a bit excessive in its run time but at least it had one proper thing going: STRUCTURE. The majority of the songs had STRUCTURE. Donda 2 is just a collection of a bunch of unfinished and DEFINITELY unmixed songs that were crammed together for the sake of making an album. As I stated, the mixing is TRASH. There were some songs that ... read more

I do believe that this album is not as good as I wanted but was this to be expected? Definetley not, while donda was good when compared to Kanye’s other albums it’s not even close to what it could’ve been. We miss out on this due to comparisons to CLB and other albums realesed at that time. Donda 2 has some hits like True love and we did it kid but in the End lack of creativity and handicapped listening due to Stemplayer makes this album his worst or one of the worst yet.

Eu gostei bastante das músicas e das ideias que o Ye pôs em prática no album, tem bons feats, como o dos Migos, do XXXTENTACION, do Baby Keem, do Future, etc. Curti bastante a produção, ficou parecendo coisa que saiu diretamente de Yeezus ou de TLOP. Tirando as coisas boas que eu falei sobre Donda 2, o album tá incompleto, a mixagem tá horrorosa, os feats não são tão bons ou memoráveis comparados aos de Donda 1, nem ... read more
