    Take the jokes for what they are and discover that Felix's style-shifting is refreshing at album length. It may even make He Was Kings the finest full-length effort he's ever created.
  2. For the most part, He Was King emphasizes pop accessibility--and it often does so with catchy, likable results.
  3. Masterfully bleak and hyper-stylized, He Was King is music for the robot age.
  4. He Was King is tasty candy, to be sure. But it's the sort of candy that only makes you want something more substantial. Like cake.

    Felix Stallings Jr. bounces back by sampling, quoting, and paraphrasing other people’s rubbery tunes, and showcasing them in similarly elastic settings.
  6. Felix’s work has been steadily declining since then, and He Was King does nothing to reverse the trend.
  7. Ultimately, He Was King is electro-pop on autopilot.
