Jun 20, 2018Sonically speaking, EVERYTHING IS LOVE benefits from the sophisticated palates of two superstars and integrates reggae, soul, R&B and boom bap throughout but in a way that’s entirely seamless. Trustworthy studio gurus including Pharrell, Vinylz, !llmind and Mike Dean all pitch in for instrumentals that are both opulent and demure in their presentation.
Jun 19, 2018Everything may lack the emotional depth of Beyoncé’s last two solo records, but it more than makes up for it in holy-shit-Beyoncé moments. ... Only Jay’s own work with Kanye (and Drake and Future’s collaborative 2015 takeover of rap radio) even approach what the Carters have done here, at least as far as fusing their disparate personae into an appealing whole.
Jun 18, 2018With their new album as the Carters, Jay-Z (born Shawn Carter) and Beyoncé are once again a united force, celebrating their success on every front: artistic, financial, marital, erotic, historic. ... This is more familiar, less vulnerable and less exploratory territory than the zones where Beyoncé and Jay-Z ventured on “Lemonade” and “4:44.”
Jun 18, 2018On Everything Is Love the two flex their muscles like it’s an Olympic sport. ... The inside references and the happy proximity to current rap also work in service of a larger point, which is thinking about black achievement in the context of a cultural and political system designed to hinder it. ... Mainstream art makes too little room for stories like that, especially when the grown-ups in question are people of color. But the Carters won’t be denied on Everything Is Love. For them, this hard-won encore is also a beginning.
Jun 18, 2018Everything about Everything is Love feels superficial, from the artists’ constant pronouncement of their love for each other to their engagement with topics like fashion, art, watches (this gets its own category), social issues, how great their friends are, sports, and, indeed, their own lives. The most boring aspect of the album is its centerpiece: the couple’s obsession with their wealth.

It is very coherent, and listening to it is not overwhelming at all. Also, there is an incredible flow between all the songs that makes the album very smooth.
Jay-Z is just as great as he always is, There is something very special and unique about the way he raps and says the words, which proves great for all the songs on the album!
On the other hand, Beyonce.... I am actually speechless about her. There is absolutely nothing that she isn't great at! Whenever she sings or says a word, I become 200 times happier than I was tbh. In this album, she goes on to explore rap (which she has only almost done in Partition previously), and damn is she fine at it.
Although this is a collab album, it is easy to see that Beyonce is superior to her hubby, who is also amazing, but he falls in the shadow of Beyonce's triumph. That being said, the album still feels like a collab, and the bond between them is amazing. This album is truly a work of art, and it is a very pleasurable listen.… Expand
