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.

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.

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’s Hip Hop Album. It has great hooks and colorful production...

My favorite and definitely their best album as they build greatly upon the highs of the first SATURATION.

that's more like it.

This record is more hip-hop leaning than the first instalment, which I think works in their favour tremendously; everyone sounds in their element here, even on the less appealing tracks. Great hooks (no surprise) and tracks dedicated to singing were used sparingly, which made the final track that much more satisfying.
