Pretty Much Amazing

Where Saturation feels more upfront, II feels more mischievous, a willingness to twist things to their own perception.

Each member secures at least two or three singular victories that will plant themselves in daydreams, playlists, and year-end debates. However, the biggest win is in the team striking lightning twice, a group of individuals demonstrating in one summer that they’re destined to create together.

The Needle Drop

Brockhampton offers more of the same with the second installment of their Saturation trilogy, which is fine because the group's sound is still so refreshing and cutting edge.

PopMatters

Through two albums this year (and a third on the way), they’re solidly established in their identity as a group. Saturation II is a major step in that development as it confirmed they’re capable of putting out quantity and quality. But trust in a formula will only get them so far.

AllMusic

Overall, the Saturation trilogy is something to behold -- a fun, thoughtful, and unexpected experience from a group of highly creative young musicians -- with Saturation II its standout installment.

BROCKHAMPTON re-tread the same ideas, but with more proficiency and more urgency than before.

Pitchfork

The sequel is not vastly different from its predecessor, but it is an improvement. Whereas the first Saturation preached self-assurance, the second actually collects on it.

The writing on Saturation II is often witty and revealing, and even when it’s not, each member of the boy band manages to sound enthusiastic.

This whole trilogy, as a result of the group's determination to scream their brains out and show the world what they're made of, comes off like the perfect conglomeration of their greatest hits. The "SATURATION" trilogy is an outstanding realization of their strongest talents and their might as a unity.

SIMPLY. STELLAR.

Saturation II is equally as great as its predecessor, however both albums shine in different places. first of all, while sat1 seems to focus on all members working together and showcasing their chemistry, sat2 gives every individual member their chance to shine. i don’t think one of these ideas/focuses is better than the other. the focus on working together showcased the members’ chemistry very well, the focus on individual members showcased the musical diversity of the group as ... read more

BROCKHAMPTON BINGE PART 2: SATURATION II.

Saturation II is the second album in BROCKHAMPTON’s Saturation series, released roughly 2 months after the first. The project mostly keeps the same quality that the original Saturation has, and even if I like it a little less than the original, it’s still a great project that I mostly enjoyed.

The project is another helping of the same introspective, hardcore hip-hop that was delivered on the first Saturation project, but it opens very ... read more

🤍TRASH SATURATED IRIDESCENT SUGAR #3🤍

With all of these mini van lines, i'm starting to think that their least favourite car is a mere van. Wait.

sToP sh00tING uPPerCASE.

The middle entry of the trilogy, is, so far, the best. SATURATION I was mote original in sounds, but the second part elevates a lot of my favourite aspects of the band and improves on their debut album. It's exactly what a sequel needs to do: take on what they did before, make it better and make it sound updated. ... read more
