CRITIC REVIEWS

Pitchfork
Younge presents whole thoughts that move with a fluidity that he's seldom exhibited in the past. In short: he's gotten better at everything he does.

AllMusic
Though a couple cuts aren't as quick to stick to memory as the sweet and sour soul displayed throughout the stunning 2011 album, this less novel but engrossing sequel is another worthy addition to the Younge discography.

HipHopDX

So then Something About April II is the rare record that allows you be spirited away without feeling dirty or voyeuristic.

Exclaim!

Where the original Something About April was a show a prove lesson in sample creation, part II is a dirt-off-the-shoulder proclamation of songcraft.

While we may have heard it all before, can we really deny a reproduction that’s been sculpted with such love and diligence?

Only decent songs are Sandrine and Hear My Love. Most of the songs lack any creativity at all, and pretty much all of the features (this album has a lot) completely suck as they're trying to be as "nostalgic" as possible without any regards for rhythm or sounding in tune with the instrumental.
