The 405

His latest album, and his best one at that, Who Told You To Think??!!?!?!?!, is a fifteen track epic exploring the height of Milo's capabilities as an artist.

A.V. Club

Milo’s still firmly making experimental hip-hop, bridging various through-lines of mind-expanding boom-bap, but he’s also etching his way toward the center, his art getting clearer with each step.

Pretty Much Amazing

While Milo’s lyrical wit has remained sharp over the years, the beats he raps over have gotten better and better with every release, culminating in Who Told You To Think??!!?!?!?! as the best batch of beats he’s rapped over.

Tiny Mix Tapes

This is the crux of the album’s difficulty: it feels personal and scans as though it should be, but time and time again, it leaves me not quite sure whether I know a single thing about milo, the person.

Pitchfork
milo is a sharp-tongued rapper whose wordplay rewards close listening. On his third and best LP, the Maine emcee carries the flag for the underground rap scene that birthed him.

The Needle Drop

Following up on its predecessor's sense of urgency, Who Told You to Think??!!?!?!?! is another thought-provoking abstract hip hop album under Milo's belt.

He has taken the worst qualities of his previous album ie His Ego and made an album for it, at this point you're just listening to this guy because he uses interesting words, really not worth it, considering his words are completely empty and bloated by his insecurities and the ego he has created to protect said insecurities.

To compare Milo to Earl Sweatshirt is just a crime.

Just the same song and dance for Milo. This time, his effort in Who Told You To Think??!!?!?!?! shows no such thing. It's too minimal and boring to feel intrigued the whole way through.

This album is boring. There is a serious problem in parts of the hiphop and underground hiphop communities where any rapper that is lyrical or conscious is automatically good and immune to any hate. This album is boring and at points can barely be considered music. Milo definitely has lyrical substance and interesting philosophies and opinions. Beyond that there isn't much to take away from this album. The beats are lo-fi to the point of being indistinguishable at times, the song structures are ... read more
