    They finally turned their funhouse mirrors inwards and crafted a Mature Album in a way that only they could, refracting their own past work through the same broken prism that they’ve spent years pulling pop and rap through.

    Though scattershot emotional mayhem, this album is a resounding triumph.

    It’s all bolder, fuller, and, well, better.

    So though it does often feel like JJ have hit a wall on V, when they're able to scale that wall and dance with the stars, the album's a treat.

    You have to admire the experimentation and musical audacity demonstrated on this album--i’s a shame that it doesn’t always work in jj’s favour.

    The duo's intoxicating sense of endless sonic possibility remains, but the many lovely moments rarely amount to memorable songs, and several shout-outs to its still-enchanting debut fells like cruel teases. [No. 112, p.57]

    As a whole, the albums works on a cohesion, transitioning from stronger, more powerful tracks (“Dynasti”, “Dean & Me”, and “All White Everything”) to the remaining eight cuts, which are breezy, quiet, and, sadly, quite boring, thanks to cheesier lyrics and lack of production effort.
