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.

GIGsoup
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.

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