CRITIC REVIEWS

83
Entertainment Weekly

With help from producers like Ricky Reed, she delivers wide-eyed pre-9/11 pop—and this throwback vibe suits her. 

80
The Arts Desk

On Thank You she demonstrates real dance-pop agility. Some of these songs will be moving feet for a good while to come.

70
AllMusic

Taken on a track by track basis, it can be silly fun ... but as a collective, Thank You turns into something less than the sum of its parts almost entirely due to the Trainor's tunnel vision.

67
A.V. Club

Self-empowerment can shade into self-aggrandizement when it isn’t delivered in a convincing way, and Thank You only periodically rises to the challenge.

60
Spin

Thank You is a major step forward from 2014’s unlikable Title, and someone you’re rooting against is in it to win it.

50
Spectrum Culture

Structure is an issue within Thank You, despite its catchy beats.

40
Slant Magazine

In her attempts to capture the girl-power theatrics of early-aughts Destiny's Child, Trainor also misguidedly rehashes that era's urban-pop production, all chintzy beats and grinding synths.

40
The Guardian

Ultimately, much of Thank You is a bit of a hotchpotch, after her initial efforts were rejected and main producer Ricky Reed called on to conjure up some hits.

40
The Sydney Morning Herald

The reparative self-love that once propelled All About That Bass now feels more like straight narcissism.

Pros.
-Stepped up production from Title
-Only 39 minutes long

Cons.
- It was 39 minutes too long
-The writing sounded like a chubby spoiled white 6-year old was given a mic and a Starbucks and told to sing about her life
