This debut shines so brightly in comparison to what Aminé’s contemporaries are passing off that it may be easy to forget that it is not exactly a groundbreaking album. Regardless, the rookie should be commended for crafting an honest, entertaining and revealing album.

A.V. Club

The record’s a triumph not so much of rapping or flashy production but an easy confluence of the two, of immaculate sonic choices that allow Aminé to stay in his Pharrell-like pop-rap comfort zone. Nothing’s quite as good as “Caroline,” but then, few things are.

Even if he’s not the most gifted creatively right now, he’s still in his early 20s and doesn’t confine himself to just hip hop for inspiration. The future looks as bright as the colors on his album cover.

Pitchfork

The Portland rapper’s debut album balances playful verses and cheerful wit with more revealing moments of introspection.

Exclaim!

Even in its weighty moments, the simple melodies, infectious hooks and liberal dashes of humour will keep your spirits up from start to finish. Good For You is a satisfying, well-rounded effort.

Good for You isn’t a pleasant listen because Amine is so gosh darn happy, it’s because it appears so out of step with a relentlessly negative and dour mood. We could all do with just that much more happiness in our lives.

Portland's own Aminé sells himself short on his mellow studio debut, Good for You.

Oh cool, more pop rap that will be jerked off for a month and then forgotten about by the time 2018 rolls around.

Good For You isn't a bad debut at all, and I think with this album it's been made very clear that Amine has a ton of potential to become the next big thing in rap music. He has a fun, unique and refreshing style, a lot of character and personality and some really interesting production choices in my opinion, and whilst his songwriting and lyrical skill is obviously far from being perfected, I can absolutely see this album appealing to a lot of people. It's biggest positive is it's incredibly ... read more

I enjoy this album a lot, and find myself returning to a lot of the tracks. People seem to think it's just mediocre, but something about it just works for me.

It's not revolutionary or even that different. Some tracks are definently better than others but I think that's okay. It's just a solid record, what more could you ask for honestly? I think he has a lot of great potential! Keep an eye on him!
