Beerbongs & Bentleys contains banger after banger; it's an incredible drug-induced album.

The Needle Drop

On his sophomore album, Post Malone carves out his own niche in the auto-croon field with quality trap production, strong vocal performances, and a bit of a singer-songwriter twist.

Pitchfork

At times it’s almost impressive how long an album called Beerbongs & Bentleys can go without cracking a smile. It is more assured and impressive than its predecessor, Stoney, but it’s also more exhausting.

He is by all objective measures just not good. I do want to convince you though that he is, for better or worse, just a notch above average.

AllMusic

Beerbongs & Bentleys is an apt reflection of his lavish lifestyle and his subsequently begotten hardships, but its attempts at sincerity work only when Post Malone stops trying so hard.

Consequence of Sound

The makings of an incredible album are here on beerbongs & bentleys, but we’re just going to have to wait until Post has enough money, success, and artistic freedom to be able to make that special album.

NME

The 22-year-old singer makes the rockstar lifestyle sound beige on this directionless second album.

The Guardian

There are powerful choruses and strong vocals from the chart-topping, face-tattooed rapper, but his guests show him up as a weak lyricist.

Rolling Stone
With sing-song melodies and dreamy trap-lite beats, Post's songs re-package existent rap trends for people who might not particularly like rap at all – including, it would seem, the artist himself.

Highsnobiety
Its tracks are so homogenous, so repetitive, that you’re almost given the impression of being trapped in some claustrophobic, M. C. Escher-like landscape of stairwells and hallways, but without any of the tension or excitement that that situation would elicit. When one song ends, another begins – same chords, same tone, same melody, same Autotune – and the cycle begins again, like a slightly nauseating merry-go-round.

Okay... understand that as someone who HATED Stoney, I was really nervous about this album. However it completely nails what Stoney failed at. Jeeeeeesus this album is so solid front to back. I hated 90% of what was on Stoney, but here we get druggy, upbeat bangers on the front half, and a beautiful slowdown after the middle. People called Stoney a classic for some reason... but this album stomps that one out in every way.

It is very formulaic, and maybe a few songs could have been put on the ... read more

Overhated. I take this album for what it is.

Cover art looks like "Yeezus" mixed with the Monster Energy's logo.

My opinion on Post Malone is very divided. I've gone from thinking he is huge garbage to thinking he has a few good songs to considering him one of the best guys of mainstream contemporary R&B to hating him all over again. So yeah, it's definitely difficult. But I think a lot of people can enjoy Malone's music because he is extremely versatile.

I enjoyed "beerbongs & bentleys". Post Malone takes ... read more

Doesn't deserve the amount of hate it gets. There are classics on this album.

A Post Malone album that is actually fun, addictive, and druggy. It is full of trap bangers and also some slow songs. At the time of its release, the songs from this album that was being played in the radio are quite refreshing to hear. Nothing really unique, but very enjoyable to listen.

Few tracks are quite skippable, but the rest are just very addictive. Post's singing improve in this project, and the production are very hard-hitting. For an hour runtime of trap pop songs, I only find few ... read more
