    As a result, My Everything is a less cohesive project than Yours Truly, although its best moments eclipse the highs of Grande's 2013 debut.

    Turns out, so-called mini-Mariah can hold her own in 2014; and while the best songs here may not be timeless, they certainly feel right for right now.

    Despite its shortcomings, My Everything succeeds in its primary objective. This is a pop record, clear and simple.

    Despite a cast list that includes Childish Gambino and The Weeknd (and, if you're that way inclined, Harry Styles), there's often a facelessness that defeats even Grande's lush vocal performances.

    My Everything is so well-constructed and designed to succeed, it rarely loosens up enough to let any depth of character (or real surprises) surface.
  6. It’s all well and good to deal with tough topics through music, but My Everything puts on a breezy pop face that severely hinders the potential poignancy of Grande’s words, morphing them into a more disquieting figure.

    My Everything truly sound[s] like a grab-bag of ideas, lacking any sort of conceptual unity or overall theme.

    Another great album by Ariana Grande. Excellent vocals and addictive songs. She decided to venture further in pop compared to the previous album, Yours Truly, and the result was very good. Expand

    In this album, we can see an Ariana more ''mature'' but still innocent, personally I think it looks like that. I'm not an Ariana fan, but this album is absolutely-what-people-have-to-listen-now. It's time to leave the ''twerk'' behind, and listen people with talent.
    The magical Ariana's voice makes this album have sense.
    Songs like ''My everything'', ''One Last Time'' produced by David Guetta, ''Why Try'' Co-wrote by Harry Styles, ''Break Free'' Feat. Zedd, ''Love me Harder'' Feat. The Weeknd, really stand out in the album. Congrats Ariana, you will be on top of the charts for long.

    My Everything, is exactly what you can expect; though not as strong as her previous album, Grande's vocals still over weigh the flaws that come along.

    Ariana Grande's My Everything is the epitome of manufactured corporate pop. This album is garbage. She is a mediocre singer at best. As for her song writing abilities, she has none. Her label did all the work. She just showed up in the studio for 2 days to record songs written and composed for her by other people. She does not write or compose any of her music. All of her songs have anywhere from 4 to 10 writers. She is listed as a co-writer, even though she doesn't write anything, to give her false credibility. The lead single "Problem" is the worst pop song since Rebecca Black's Friday. The rest of the album is just as bad. Every song sounds the same. They are all generic bland typical pop songs that you hear on the radio. If you love garbage like Justin Bieber, One Direction, and Rebecca Black, you will love this album. If you love non-manufactured real music, you will not like this album. Expand
