    Can't turn off this new catchy pop/hip-hop album. People seem to want to hate on this white girl from Down Under, but it's all unfounded. Not in quite some time has someone swaggered onto the scene this way. Iggy has style, charisma, and yes, arrogance, but she dares to challenge the status quo and what people expect from a person of her background. "Fancy" is endlessly catchy.

"Black Widow" is another of the album's pop highlights. Iggy also displays terrific flow on tracks like the previously released "Change Your Life" featuring T.I. Other highlights are "Lady Pasha", "Goddess", and for my money, the highlight of the album, "100" where Iggy raps confidently and even ingeniously beyond her years. Bring on the next album. Soon. Please. Expand

    Álbum muito bom que mostra que você pode fazer hip-hop /rap saindo das raízes e sendo inconvencional. Acho que a Iggy tem futuro no mercado musical e vai dar muita dor de cabeça pra sua hater numero 1 Azealia Banks.

    There's a range of songs to suite everyone, including the critically acclaimed 'Work' and new singles 'Fancy' and 'Black Widow'. The album is good for something different and isn't boring at all. Highlights are 100, New **** Work, Goddess and **** Love, all are classic Iggy songs!

    Great Debut Album! Great Songs! Full of fun and catchy beats! This rapper is going to go far in the music industry for her unique voice and for the many songs in the album that could potentially be hits!

    "The New Classic" um álbum original e pessoal, é bem aparente que Iggy pega suas experiências de vida e transforma em música, assim como Taylor Swift. O álbum é bem misto de Pop/Rap, mostrando que Iggy não se limita ao Rap, músicas como "Change Your Life" e "Bounce" mostram a ousadia de Iggy em misturar batidas pop/house com rimas perigosas de Rap.

    Best female hip-hop/rap album ever made. Period.
    Walk The Line, Work, Fancy, Black Widow, Bounce, Goddess, Impossible is Nothing & Rolex are masterpieces.

    Iggy Azalea's a fun girl booty-shaking a few morsels of neon, hashtag-spangled pop.

    The New Classic, though stacked from top to bottom with an impressive collection of production efforts, is nothing more than derivative delivery soaked in stylistic heresy.

    While Azalea drops the occasional zinger, The New Classic is the sound of an ersatz rebel playing to script, having a shot at the rap career Paris Hilton never quite got round to. [Jun 2014, p.123]
