Outside of a couple slight missteps near the end, this is an incredible pop record. Gorgeous, heartbreaking, catchy as hell, and far smarter than it seems to let on.

An instant classic of abstract hip hop and my highest scored album of the year. However, scores aren't everything and I'm going to step back on calling it my AOTY for a little while, allowing it to sink in. I've listened to this 6 times today and still in shock by how much I loved an Earl Sweatshirt album.

Feel pretty much the same as I did with Malibu. A crisp, well made jazz rap album that I have just above zero interest in revisiting.

About the best you could ask for from a fallen pop star nearing 50 years old. Some good ole capital R & B that is never revelatory but manages to relevant to the current pop landscape without seeming desperate.

I enjoyed it for the most part but it thrives mostly on up to date references and a brief run time.

Getting major Dookie vibes from this album cover. We'll see if that's a good or a bad thing.

With Post, Bjork proved herself by releasing one of the best albums of that year as well as some of the best singles of the 90s. How did she follow it? She makes one of the best albums of all time.

A dark an intense album that's consistently surprising. It's unpredictability and impeccable craft make it one of the years strongest first listens.

These three need to make this a full time gig because what they're doing here is pretty incredible.

I have to be honest, I'm pretty disappointed with this. After those two amazing lead singles, it was hard not too let the hype grab hold of me. The record only has one other song close to the caliber of "Missing U" or "Honey" and it comes at the very end. There are also a couple songs that are complete throwaways which is hard to justify on an album consisting of only 9 tracks. Robyn also struggles lyrically when stepping outside her particular wheelhouse. That being ... read more

I can throw paint at my walls but that doesn't make me Jackson Pollock.

Everytime I listen to"When I'm With Him", it's impossible not to hear I tried to fart but it just don't feel the same. But the album,yeah it's alright.

One of 2018's greatest surprises.

Dev Hynes is easily one of the most talented musicians working today. He just needs a teammate. He has very little range in his voice and it can grow dull, especially over 15 tracks. I also feel that, like Freetown Sound, we know the message he wants to get across but it's not executed as well as it should be lyrically. The Puff and Rocky features as well as most of the spoken word parts didn't work for me. But damn if some of the production on this isn't some of the most gorgeous music ... read more

A political record that doesn't suck. Sounds like if Cyndi Lauper ate a bunch of mushrooms.

Interesting at first but grows tedious due to nearly every song sounding exactly the same.

Not loving this quite as much as everyone else but it's still a solid release from one of this decade's most reliable and consistent bands.

Though not my personal favorite, this is probably the most flawlessly executed album of 2018. Nothing seems out of place and though stylistically varied, everything flows and interweaves perfectly, offering up something for everyone. This is my 60 year old dad's AOTY.

A slightly entertaining but disingenuous and weak imitation of Clipse's best work. The bleak coke raps and beef tracks now sound more like desperate attempts to stay relevant.
