    Ms. Banks is one of the smartest artists around. Using 90's-like house beats mixed up with clever rap wordplays, she accomplishes a hard-to-get feature: an EP that's strong from the funky title track all the way to "Liquorice", which celebrates men's fetishes for colored women. It's a win for Azealia!

    This is a very unique Ep. I love the style of music and the lyrics of Banks. If her debut album anything like this EP it should be a very great one. She has some great lyrics. EP album of the year. This album is a very great Hip Hop/R&B Album.

    A fresh and tasty bite that makes you want more. An exciting EP which promises a great deal of fun and delivers through every little sound. Keep an eye on her, she's going to change the game.

    Azealia Banks is an original and fresh addition to the current Hip-Hop movement. Her Rap skills are very refined, her lyrics are unique, and she has a very good singing voice on top of it. This EP is great; I definitely recommend. Download her FREE Mixtape, Fantasea, though Facebook (It's very good as well).
    Favorite tracks: "212" and "Liquorice"

    I don't really care that the EP has four tracks. They are all amazing. "1991" introduces the EP, "Van Vogue", a slower rap song comes next, Azealia's breakout hit "212" follows, and sassy "Liquorice" closes.

    From the cover to the last second, 1991 is pure freshness. She's in her own lane and like she already said, this sh*t been hers. Favorite: Van Vogue and Liquorice.

    This is one of the best EPs I've heard in a while. Her rapping skills are undeniable and she's a talented singer too. Each track uses shrewd and clever lyricism and marries traditional hard-core Rap with Electronica, Dance/Pop and House. Out of this holy union comes nothing but pure excellence. Her upcoming mixtape and album should not disappoint. The '1991' EP sure didn't.

    Banks proves herself a fierce songstress with a talent of ingenious lyricism. The 1991 EP is bold, salacious, and superbly produced as an immaculate jewelry box of infectious gems. This ambitious debut helped pave the way for equally and rightfully acclaimed mixtape, Fantasea.

    1991 is all about the bubble-popping lushness of "Van Vogue" and the hall-of-mirrors shimmer of "Liquorice." It's also about the summer, and showing more of Banks than just her breakout hit.

    Quick-tongued, lascivious, catchy, and delighted with itself, there hasn't been a more pleasurable record all year and probably won't be‑-not even by her.

    Banks continues to get away with her obnoxiousness--and while the quality of the music remains disproportionate to the hype, it does make her bratty rejection of the rap establishment feel that much more thrilling.
