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.


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.

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.


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.
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.

Beerbongs & Bentleys.

Beerbongs & Bentleys sees Post Malone begin his reign of dominance over the music industry, an iron grip that he continues to hold to this day. Shifting away from the general monotony of his previous record Stoney, Beerbongs & Bentleys sees Post Malone lay down banger after banger, with insane consistency might I add. This record is just extremely impressive on all fronts, with the memorable flows, iconic choruses, great singing, and banging beats Post ... read more
