    Thanks to her Valley Girl charisma and omnivorous sexual gaze she mostly succeeds. [Dec 2012, p.73]

    The Oakland MC's debut explores her skill at giving hormonally bonkers post-Odd Future shock rap a bratty, ashtray-Madonna spin.

    Her delivery--nasal, slightly nagging--inevitably begins to grate long before the album's running time is up. But there are points of interest that take Kreayshawn beyond empty attempts at swag.

    She's best when playing it kinetic and in complete violation of good taste, so whittle this one down by half for the ultimate in bird-flipping, rave-rapping, and repercussion-free living.

    Over 13 tracks, though, Kreay's 'thing' wears waaay thin.

    It is the preponderance of bland dance tracks (the inane 'Go Hard (La.La.La)', 'Twerkin'' and the abysmal 'luV haus' et al) lacking the wit of her previous singles, which consign this debut to a failure.

    There's Something 'Bout Kreay is the sound of a record company trying to turn 15 minutes of fame into a career, and spending way too much money in the process.

    It's not a very good listen, but it's kind of fun to watch someone be so free.

    The problem with Somethin' Bout Kreay is that the record is inevitably one of novelty, and it wears thin fast.

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    This is an okay album. The problem with Kreayshawn is that most of her songs have no sense she said that she makes music for fun ONLY.This is an okay album. The problem with Kreayshawn is that most of her songs have no sense she said that she makes music for fun ONLY. Highlights:

    Gucci Gucci 3/5
    Summertime 4/5 (V-Nasty is the problem)
    Luv Haus 5/5

    The rest of the album is completely garbage.
