    ["I'll Be Yours" and "Move That Dope"] reinforces Future's status as the rap game's current MVP. [2 May 2014, p.63]

    Honest is transporting in ways that few records are, and no matter how strong the beat selection might be or how perfectly the guest list is curated, credit is due overwhelmingly to Future for being able to sustain and justify such a broad range of moods for the duration of the record.

    For an A-list rap album, Honest is refreshingly small in scope. It resists grandiose production flourishes, message songs, ambitious themes, run-on suites, and most of the other tropes rappers over-rely on to telegraph importance. Instead it just lets the bangers rip, freeing Future to cruise down his preferred lane unimpeded.

    Future’s lyrical sensitivity wouldn’t work without the album’s pitch-perfect production.

    Future stays true to himself and clearly shows where he stands. Even when he goes simple, there is an appeal, at least somewhere in there.

    An early contender for this year’s big summer rap album, we won’t be surprised if we are still hearing about Honest when the winter cold returns.

    Honest is a good deal more middle-of-the-pack for a post-Yeezus 2014 than its creator wants to admit.

    Future has crafted an album that shows that he's not the "autotune garbage non-lyrical repetitive-production rap nonsense" that people thinkFuture has crafted an album that shows that he's not the "autotune garbage non-lyrical repetitive-production rap nonsense" that people think he is. Future's lyricism has improved a lot with this album, as well as the production on this album. I didn't like the love songs that Future once stated he wanted to make more of, it really doesn't continue what Future is known for. However, I liked the majority of the songs on here, "Move That Dope" even being a revolutionary track that would have been popular 20 years ago. Grade: B. Highlights: "Move That Dope", "Benz Friendz", "How Can I Not", "My Momma". Worst songs: "I Be U", "Side Effects" Expand

    There comes a time you know that the money and fame of an official critic largely comes from paying lipservice to music they just can'tThere comes a time you know that the money and fame of an official critic largely comes from paying lipservice to music they just can't possibly enjoy. Let me say this as clearly as I can:

    this album is trash. Period. It's like p*ssy qu33fs over rnb/trap beats. Future is a terrible singer. Grab the next person you see and tell him to sing and he will outsing Future. Future is also a terrible rapper, he has absolutely nothing interesting to say. Very few rappers have the quality of being able to just rap 16 bars and still not manage to say a single memorable one and with his lazy, sing/rap delivery there is no way it will stick to anyone's head. The only good track on this album is ''Move that Dope'' but sadly, it has absolutely nothing to do with Future's ability. It has all to do with the perfectly grimey MWMI beat and Pusha T delivering another one of his amazing words, utilizing perfect wordplay, with his lowtuned, flow which just mix excellently. The features on this album, I feel like are here because they want money. It's so easy to tell that the Drake feature on this track is only there to have Drake listed.

    That future doesn't have more haters than he do is insane. He is without a doubt a result of the worst things of this generation.
