CRITIC REVIEWS

80
The Skinny

On Rush! Måneskin continuously prove that outcasts deserve a good time, and they are here to give it to us.

80
American Songwriter
With 17 mostly terrific songs (three sung in Italian), only one breaking the four-minute mark, the collection has the jittery intensity of a lion pacing before feeding time.
80
Kerrang!
Best of all, the unhinged rap-rock of La fine and Il dono della vita’s jazzy swell – both sung in emotive Italian – prove their credentials as ambassadors of the universal language of rock’n’roll. Bravissimo!
80
Classic Rock

Rush! is dazzling proof that Måneskin are capable of writing rings around most modern riff monkeys.

80
Evening Standard
These are mostly songs that are designed for the biggest stages, and surely destined to stay there.
80
The Arts Desk
They draw on the gloriously stupid, disruptive spirit of rock'n'roll as we used to know it.

Dork
Måneskin don’t waste any time trying to claim the throne on ‘Rush!’ – they already know it’s theirs.

AllMusic

With Rush!, Måneskin make good on their Eurovision rock promise, delivering an album that's campy, inspired, and thrilling all at the same time.

80
The Telegraph

Måneskin won their title largely through sheer excitement – big, loud rock ‘n’ roll thrills bursting with panache and style and charisma and sex. On third album RUSH! this modus operandi remains so: every OTT moment here is designed to dazzle.

70
Uncut

The self-assumed swagger that enlivens the 17-track Rush! emanates from the focus attack of the band members, whose playing thrums with attitude.

70
Clash
Exhaustive and exhausting, ‘Rush!’ feels like the definitive word in this unlikely rock phenomenon – at its best, it’s a feral reminder of how entertaining the genre can be.
70
The Line of Best Fit
The album feels and sounds like an unstoppable force, which is undoubtedly where Måneskin is at – and, if we’re to continue on this upward trajectory with them, what a ride it will be.
60
The Irish Times

Third album from Italian rockers has energy and charisma wedged into English-language songs.

60
The Observer
The Eurovision winners’ third LP boasts gleaming production values and nuanced songs, but tries to tick too many boxes.
60
The Independent

While it’s true that Rush! starts to feel amorphous, you’d be hard-pressed to find a single moment in its 50-minute runtime where you’re not enjoying yourself just a little.

60
The Guardian
The Italian quartet prove themselves sharp operators with an infectiously enthusiastic record inspired by a grab-bag of influences.
60
NME
The Italian band cap off a whirlwind period by sticking to their guns in the face of industry bluster and interference.
60
Gigwise

Rush! sees Måneskin pulling out all the stops and drawing on a range of genres, from glam-rock and punk to the power ballad, for an eclectic end product, but one that lacks the cohesion of their previous record.

30
No Ripcord
A miserable buffet of rock ‘n’ roll cliches, from saccharine ballads to off-color glam to bland MTV rock. It’s essentially homeopathic rock muzak.
20
The Needle Drop
At the very least, Måneskin should probably start flossing.

It might just be the fact that I don't speak or understand Italian so it comes off as more palatable when the music is the only thing I can judge on first listen, but Måneskin works really well when they stick to an energetic punk sound and EXCLUSIVELY speak in Italian.
However, they leave this Italian-only formula and make a complete English-only turnaround on RUSH! on 14/17 tracks, leaving you with a messy album chock full of questionable cringy lyrics, unfortunate mixing, and ... read more

Horny filler after horny filler after horny filler. Crazy how the only songs I liked on this album were all spoken in Italian. And while most of this album is just painfully mediocre, the bad songs are HORRENDOUSLY bad, like "BLA BLA BLA", "KOOL KIDS", and "READ YOUR DIARY". Not many songs make me physically cringe, but Maneskin managed to release three of them on this album, so I guess they have that going for them.

Ok so it has taken me a few days to actually figure out what I think about this new LP from Italian rock outfit Måneskin.
There is no doubt the band could've done better by leaving some tracks out and maybe rewriting a few.

When I first heard Måneskin win Eurovision in 2021 I was pumped and full of hope that rock would come a little closer to being mainstream, which some might dislike but as a rock fan I enjoy there being more of us. They for sure gained a lot of fans and so ... read more
