CRITIC REVIEWS

AllMusic

Honestly, Nevermind is a welcome development in the Drake saga, a left turn off what was starting to seem like an endless stretch of trap-heavy highway. The destination is still sad and self-involved, but at least the scenery is colorful and never boring.

Rolling Stone

Drake takes a leap further into uncharted realms than any of his peers, offering a refreshing sign of what’s to come.

HipHopDX
He stopped making the Drake album we want him to make and made the Drake album Drake wants to make. Locked in with producers he trusts and letting his guard down, he sounds more focused and balanced than he has in years.

Clash
For those who dare to read beyond the headline, Drake has offered us glimmers of the truth, and the whole truth.

Exclaim!

"Falling Back" makes for a questionable lead-off, as Drake's falsetto has never been particularly strong, but Honestly, Nevermind rarely falters from there.

Spectrum Culture
Someday, Drake might expand his chops as a singer and a songwriter; he might even grow as an adult and a human being. But even if he doesn't, this is a much-needed and appreciated rejuvenation.

Entertainment Weekly
On his seventh studio album, the Canadian star all but abandons hip-hop for a melodic, downcast LP influenced by South African house and Baltimore and Jersey club music.

Pitchfork
A breezy Drake dance album sounds great in concept, but the half-measure house beats and lackluster songwriting keep it from really popping off.

The Guardian
The Canadian superstar’s new album is surprisingly full of house music, but his passive-aggressive complaints get dull.

NME

The Canadian's latest release surprises in many ways, ditching bland trap for house beats and some daring, if somewhat mixed, vocal takes.

The Line of Best Fit

Love-burnt and ambitious, Drake has produced something better than its predecessors, but without the fallback of crowd-pleasers, it is hard to see it standing the test of time.

Evening Standard
Too often, it sounds as if Drake simply isn’t trying that hard on his unannounced seventh album.

Drake heard Dawn FM and said “let me try that”

Black Midi has some competition 👀
Edit: Why did he bark at me??? 😭

After Certified Lover Boy, it’s obvious that this record will receive major hate no matter what. Many people claim that Drake has been making the same type of music since Views, but no one has that unique sound that Drake brings to the table. Although this record doesn’t sound iconic, it has a charm. Hear me out.

Despite the track Currents, which is absolutely hilarious, Drake’s production always sounds ... read more

Drake should have said "Honestly, Nevermind" before releasing this trash LP. Throughout this LP, Drake seems like he couldn't give a second thought to sound or mixing because it sounds like he recorded vocals using bandlab. Do better...
