CRITIC REVIEWS

Clash
Whilst the initial surprise felt on the original ‘Saturation’ may have subsided, the erratic excitement and experimentation on that album has been executed more confidently on each subsequent chapter. The LA group are everything progressive rap music should be; forward thinking, energetic and perhaps most importantly, exciting.

A massive union of fiery verses, melting pot beats, and compositional experimentation, Brockhampton continues to rule with the grand finale of the ‘Saturation Trilogy’.

Consequence of Sound

Saturation III is the shortest, hookiest, and best ... for no better reason than they are cooking by now, pithily commenting on police brutality, drug addiction, and receiving head.

The 405
This is Brockhampton at their funkiest and most playful, but it’s also Brockhampton at their finest.

The Needle Drop

West Coast boy band Brockhampton round out their Saturation trilogy with their most versatile and melodic album yet.

Northern Transmissions
Boasting huge party tracks with dark undertones and some menacing grooves, this album is a constant swirl driven by the band’s seemingly unlimited creativity.

HipHopDX
Luckily for fans and followers, this trilogy-closing album doubles as the best album in the series and their strongest release to date.

Pitchfork

They’ve so far struggled to translate their ideology into a working piece of art but on Saturation III, the collective’s objective begins to come into focus. They still paint in broad strokes and their songs sometimes still lack continuity, but they’re truly moving as a unit now, and the star power is all but obvious.

A.V. Club
Like its predecessors, the album is hit or miss, but the batting average remains uncommonly high for a project like this.

While they may be overzealous and inconsistent and pandering, there’s a certain gratitude reserved for the fact that these people, these dynamics, this electricity, all ended up in the same place at the same time: a trashed and cluttered share-house in California.

AllMusic

SATURATION III featured more left-field production and samples (including the Nintendo Wii music for propulsive, sax-driven lead single "Boogie") as well as the crew's typically inventive and self-aware rhymes.

After trashing SATURATION, Pitchfork are trying to amend for their mistake and jump on the trend without seeming too obvious lol

The ending of a trilogy has to be perfected, a strong closure to a collection of highly regarded music. Something to look back on that you don’t seemingly regret it not living up to its own legacy. “SATURATION III” is not only a strong cessation, but it’s also the most impressive and substantial album of the Saturation series.

No doubt, this is the group's best album yet. A lot of the magic from it for me is that it ended the series perfectly, on the highest note that ... read more

They end off the saturation trilogy with a bang delivering their catchiest, poppiest and loudest tracks yet. ofc not to forget their slower songs aswell

SATURATION III is more of the same with BROCKHAMPTON, but rather than getting old, it feels very welcomed. The SATURATION trilogy is just fantastic, man. It's three separate albums, but it is absolutely one experience. That fact was extremely true at the time of release, as hardcore fans will tell you, but the fact that it's still true even five years later just goes to show the power of what the boys had. Oddly, my ear can pick up on quite a few stock samples, but I sort of don't care, as this ... read more

This is a lot of people’s favorite SATURATION album and I can’t blame them lol. This is INSANELY good, even if not my favorite.

“BOOGIE” is like a triumphant victory lap where everyone just has fun. “ZIPPER” is kinda goofy, especially on the part of Joba, but it’s still an amazing song. “JOHNNY” has some funny bars and is pretty good but isn’t that memorable and could’ve been on SATURATION II and I ... read more
