    Any which way I look at it, I see in its 45 minutes all the signs of a true classic, an album whose daring attitude and commitment to odd sonic luxuries future emissaries of the great tradition of experimental hip-hop music should only hope to emulate.

    Song to song, it’s genuinely exciting to see where JPEGMAFIA might go next, and you never quite know what to expect. JPEGMAFIA’s third album is his most accomplished record yet.

    All My Heroes Are Cornballs is not only angry but also gracious, humble, worried, and self-conscious. In other words, it is human.

    Lyrically ‘All My Heroes Are Cornballs’ feels very stream of consciousness full of political commentary, the concerns of living in American 2019, whilst being engaging, humorous, and informative.

    All My Heroes Are Cornballs serves as an electronic manifesto for his fans, guerilla warfare of the auditory kind. Umberto Eco would be proud.

    For those not attuned to Peggy’s ability to tap into the zeitgeist, All My Heroes Are Cornballs won’t provide a lyrical turning point. But as a showcase for his skills as a producer, it should win over even the most dyed in the wool critics.

    JPEGMAFIA's flashes of brilliance are obscured by a bloated tracklist, but they're worth digging out. [Nov 2019, p.111]

    Another amazing work of art from Peggy. Sardonic humor in the lyrics, eccentric instrumentals, energetic and vulnerable. Everything that madeAnother amazing work of art from Peggy. Sardonic humor in the lyrics, eccentric instrumentals, energetic and vulnerable. Everything that made “Veteran” a great album but with more variety and better executed. This is now my 2nd favorite album this year behind “IGOR” by Tyler, the Creator. Expand

    Trash, absolute garbage. Whole album is a mess!
    This is the worst album I've heard in 2019, he goes from rapping to singing to screeching.
