    Ultimately, it’s his own, most career-defining work to date. ... The record progresses--in every sense of the word---he allows himself to become more vulnerable, more considerate.

    Astroworld shows the evolution of Travis Scott as an artist and is his most refined, imaginative, and rage-worthy project yet.

    If Astroworld suffers from any sin, it’s a nearly endless ambition.

    While Astroworld has some slight flaws, the project is Travis' best, most-progressive and most-well-rounded album to date.

    Malone is an unmistakable presence on his songs, his otherworldly croon an essential element to his genre-hopping sound. Despite the considerable leaps in quality taken on Astroworld, it still doesn’t feel like Scott can muster that level of individuality.

    The music might take your breath away, if the worst of the lyrics don’t make you roll your eyes. He’s very good at what he’s good at, but he’s not what you’d call well-rounded. Still, not everyone who has something to say, says it in words.

    There's nothing to really get mad at, but there's not much to get excited about either. Scott is just "aight."

For all the fans of Travis' previous work, thisThis was probably one of the most anticipated albums of the year, and it clearly delivered. For all the fans of Travis' previous work, this album really went well with them. But Travis had teased before the album's release that we could expect some heavy rapping. The truth is that the album had something everyone. For lyrical listeners, tracks like Coffee Bean and Yosemite delivered in a deeper way while tracks like Stargazing, NC-17 and Sicko Mode were for those who wanted something to bump in their car. Now if you listened closely, you would have found that the instrumentals throughout the album were very interesting and extremely audibly pleasing. All in all, La Flame's experimentation really paid off and all together, this album had enough to shatter peoples' expectations. This is an album that will probably be remembered as one of Travis' best and one of the best hip-hop albums for a long time. Expand

    "Astroworld" is most definitely a return to form for Travis Scott. An admittedly messy and sprawling return to form.

    "Astroworld" is most definitely a return to form for Travis Scott. An admittedly messy and sprawling return to form.

    The album overall is very front loaded with bangers and then falls off more towards the end. There are still some nice tunes scattered throughout right up until the last track "Coffee Bean" which is a super groovy vibe. One other funny thing I noticed is the insane number of features on this record. James Blake, Tame Impala, Stevie Wonder, Kid Cudi, etc. Just insane!

    "Stargazing" opens the album amazingly and "Carousel" continues from here nicely. I also concede that "Sicko Mode" is easily one of the best songs on the album, however there are two small grievances I have with the song. The first beat switch is disruptively abrupt and stops the track in its place for a moment. And Drake's verse about responsibly taking a medication as prescribed ("took half a xan...out like a light") is laughably dumb. Musically though I am a fan of this track as a whole.

    Other highlights on the album would be "Stop Trying To Be God", "Skeletons", "Wake Up", "NC-17", and "Can't Say".
