    These are dance songs so strident that no one could ever hope to move to them, pop songs so thin that no one could choose lines worth singing along to, rap verses so fumbly that practically anyone could rewrite them and make them better.

    Kreay indulges the full breadth of her influences, turning Somethin into a series of wan genre studies.

    Sure, there's Somethin 'Bout Kreay, but it's not good.

    There's only so much blood to be squeezed from that stone, so instead, Somethin 'Bout Kreay contents itself with using that stone to bash listeners over the head.

    [An] utterly vacuous, unlistenable album.

    It's a pop album of awful pop music.

    A good album overall. Really under-rated. There's 13 songs on the album and when you listen to it, you'll feel like you're listening to 13A good album overall. Really under-rated. There's 13 songs on the album and when you listen to it, you'll feel like you're listening to 13 different albums, all merged into one. Kreayshawn pays tribute to her Gucci Gucci flow on tracks 'Left Ey3' spitting rapid verses over an electronic beat, whereas on tracks like 'BFF' and 'Luv Haus' we see Kreay drift into a more R'n'B/Pop genre, keeping her eye out for a more mature audience. A great album and personally I believe this deserved a lot more than '20K copies' in America. Collapse Full Review »

    If Kreayshawn was out to make an inspirational, meaningful album to cure world hunger and start the ball rolling for her presidency campaign,If Kreayshawn was out to make an inspirational, meaningful album to cure world hunger and start the ball rolling for her presidency campaign, she would have received a 0 for this album. However, if she was out to make an album of fun, twerk music (Which is pretty evident as even one of the tracks is called 'Twerkin!!!') She receives a 5, it's still not amazing dance music compared to Rihanna or Iggy Azalea's efforts, but it's still not dreadful. Positives of the album are that no two tracks sound remotely similar, and 10/13 tracks are twerkable and fun. A big positive is that Kreayshawn has mastered auto-tune. Whereas artists like Lil Kim or T-Pain overdo auto-tune, Kreayshawn has just the right amount to sound good yet not tacky. The singles (Gucci Gucci, Breakfast & Go Hard) are the highlights of the album, an opinion which other critics share, and guest appearances from 2 Chainz & Chippy Nonstop are also appreciated.
