CRITIC REVIEWS

67
Pitchfork

Written during a period of grief, Jhené Aiko’s 22-track LP turns her methods of survival—enlightenment, drugs, music itself—into an epic concept album. Some of Aiko’s most honest writing occurs here.

66
HipHopDX

The sophomore effort shows her willingness to settle within an aesthetic that’s become commonplace in the R&B world. With only a handful of standout songs in its 22-track roadmap, Trip exposes itself as a formulaic project instead of something truly special.

i always listen to this album separately in two times, 'cuz damn it who da fuck would do 22 songs and having 5 to 7 minutes long so if i'm gonna rate the first half, actually was perfect (81) and the second half i think about (66).
i'm really happy with that record i love it very much even though it's very long XD.
my top 3 songs are:
1- OLLA (Only Lovers Left Alive) [feat. TWENTY88]
2- Jukai
3- While We're Young / When We Love

Way too spacey and vapid to have the emotional potency that her last album had.

Best Songs: While We're Young, Jukai, Overstimulated, Ascension, Frequency, New Balance, Psilocybin (Love In Full Effect)

Worst Songs: You Are Here

Jhené vem com um album bastante coeso, que pode prender em algumas faixas como Psilocybin ou Sativa, mas peca em faixas cansativas como Oblivion, mas ainda sim é um prato cheio pra quem vai ouvir esse disco sob efeitos de drogas, que é a grande proposta de Aiko
