CRITIC REVIEWS

80
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.

80
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.

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.

70
Clash
For those who dare to read beyond the headline, Drake has offered us glimmers of the truth, and the whole truth.

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.

Still Listening

Was Honestly, Nevermind as good as classic Drake? No. Is it one of the best house albums out there? Certainly not. Is it a vibe? Certainly.

66
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.
60
NME

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

60
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.

60
The Guardian
The Canadian superstar’s new album is surprisingly full of house music, but his passive-aggressive complaints get dull.
40
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”

Dear Drake,

Please, for the love of god, make better music. I'm sick and tired of these INCREDIBLY wealthy artists who waste their time with awful music when they could easily put their time and money towards a better project with better production, songwriting, lyricism, etc. I believe Drake does have a bit of talent that simply hasn't been tapped into yet due to the lack of passion for the art. Maybe this is what Drake wants to achieve, who knows, but from an outsider? Everything this man ... read more

Mr. Drizzy Drake, how do you manage to have a great 3 album run then proceed to throw it all away with this.

One of the shorter drake albums and he still manages to fuck it up by completely switching genres to house..

This entire album start to finish was fucking terrible. like really bad. Only song's that really stuck out for me was Sticky and Jimmy Cooks.

Best Song: Jimmy Cooks
Worst Song: Texts Go Green
