    • 35 Critic Score
    Taking into account the fact that there is probably 15-20 minutes worth of actual Kool Keith verses on this release it is completely unacceptable that this is being passed off as a full album.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 35 Critic Score
    For me personally their sound isn't progressive any more--it's regressive.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 35 Critic Score
    The fact that he duplicates his melodic inflections from previous albums in detail shows just how formulaic his music has become.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 35 Critic Score
    This is just a lot of well produced but unenjoyable noise.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    It will forever tarnish everything you ever liked about him, as you will suddenly view him as an eccentric crackpot who is more interested in making "Paper Bubbles" than good music.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Boy tries to stretch his simple repetitive beat production style across an entire album and it fails miserably.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Every single cliche held dear with the English language appears to have been right-click-Synonymed here.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    It's hip, it's slick, it's polished, and it's an utter waste of time.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    He can literally sleepwalk his way through a Trap House album. He does here.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    Beach House EP is cringeworthy, brainless hip hop at its worst.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 30 Critic Score
    We get predictable rock-rap joints like "I Need Church" and "Dead Man's Shoes"; embarrassing skits involving Robbie Williams; abysmal jokes at other celebrity targets; saccharin singles like "Lullaby" (which retreads most of "Read All About It") and "Little Secrets"; getting outshone on your own song by the Rizzle Kicks ("Name In Lights"); ripping off The Streets' old shit ("Fast Life"); a surprisingly soulful joint that clearly ended up on the wrong album ("Not Your Man"); the sound of a rapper all but giving up ("Shadow of the Sun") and subsequently ruining dope instrumentals like the title track.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 25 Critic Score
    This is, quite handily, so much of precisely "what is wrong with hip hop today"--tidily sequenced into an hour of mind numbing idiocy.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 25 Critic Score
    It's an album with no direction, no cohesion and a striking lack of energy.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 15 Critic Score
    "Occasion" is an abomination by all standards, but that it comes from such a respected entity as Kidz in the Hall makes it even more inexcusable.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 15 Critic Score
    Littered with ignorance, braggadocio and uninspired production, French Montana's debut release is less about him and more about the guests that his label have brought in to help hide his lack of skills.
