CRITIC REVIEWS

AllMusic
Those with a taste for R&B that's experimental and melancholic will find this an alluring debut, while others might balk at all the unexpected genre-jumping and stark sound.

Drowned in Sound

HXLT is an album that doesn’t really know what it’s doing. HXLT’s voice is neither angry enough to come across as punk, nor technically powerful enough to hold up as an R&B singer. His vocal melodies just don’t sit right and can’t fill the sparse production that is sporadically clicks and chimes in the background.

Pitchfork
Somewhere in him he might have a real punk anthem, but none of the songs on the record accurately bottle that energy.

HipHopDX
Too bad the album leaves plenty to be desired; lacking in lyrical content and creativity, shining most when HXLT embraces his punk roots.
