CRITIC REVIEWS

70
Gigwise

Though somewhat repetitious, and slightly formulaic in places, on balance Harlow doesn’t rest on his laurels; rising above the noise of his critics and digging deeper, to produce a more cohesive sound, that tentatively strays outside the parameters of contemporary hip-hop.

Clash
‘Come Home The Kids Miss You’ contains more meat, more muscle than his debut, with Jack’s penmanship focussing on fame, relationships, and the struggle to survive amid the glare of the spotlight.

You’ll find a gem or two here and there, but this collection’s longevity is questionable.

Rolling Stone
He’s a smooth entertainer with a warm personality but the Louisville rapper doesn’t seem interested in much beyond dominating the charts.

HipHopDX
Jack Harlow’s sophomore effort was meant as a testament to his passion for the game but instead, it translates into a monotonous record that often plays out like a direct contradiction to what he’s claimed — and that contradiction is ultimately damning.

YIKES. I don't know where to start. I wasn't expecting much, this is bad though. First off, these beats are boring. Jack sounds bored, but the beats were baren. There needed to be more noise on this record. Jack's primary audience probably wants this to be more energetic. To be super blunt, he's another white rapper who is bringing nothing new to the table and is generally popular because he's charismatic and white. Don't get me wrong, I've found many clips of him very entertaining, but he is ... read more
