Entertainment WeeklyJun 8, 2015It never sounds disjointed, thanks to the powerful adhesive that is Rocky's dangerous charm. [12 Jun 2015, p.74]
May 29, 2015Clearly, it’s also a druggy album, and the highs are high--noticeably on “L$D,” whose stunning production turns from submerged to soaring, the jiggy “Excuse Me,” and the sexy, aforementioned “Westside Highway,” which has A.L.L.A.’s only hummable hook. Despite those peaks, the overall tone is more despondent.

Applying several extremely cautious and well-written verses, Rocky brings everyone a new vision of himself, his career, life and all that he has to show. Rocky brings his artistic matured and this is undeniable.
Tracks like "Holy Ghost", "Fine Whine", "L$D", "Everyday" and "Max B" are more theoretical and comprehensive, with a darker tone and supreme. While "LPFJ2", "M'$", "Body Electric", " Wavybone" and "Canal St." are deducted in force, domination, dedication and evolution.
Rocky is by far one of the best representatives artist of the Rap/Hip-Hop currently qualitative. A pretty classic.… Expand

Mar 8, 2016Holy Ghost-
This is a great track with a catchy gospel instrumental and a few clever verses here and there. This is one of Rocky's mostHoly Ghost-
This is a great track with a catchy gospel instrumental and a few clever verses here and there. This is one of Rocky's most unique and well done tracks.
Another great track with a really good Bones appearance. The hook is extremely catchy The instrumental is well done and there are even more clever lines. It's definitely a ear worm track, and one of the best on the album.
The quality just takes a nose dive. Rocky's performance is boring and hard to listen to. The hook is nothing to write home about and then we have 2 AWFUL features from M.I.A and Future. Yes, this is EASILY 2nd the worst song on the album.
Rocky's singing might be boring, and the lyrics and instrumentals are not good at all, I grew attracted to it for some odd reason. This is an extremely laid back song that can actually be decently pleasant to listen to while you're going to sleep or even while you're making some bad decisions on some good drugs.
One of the best instrumentals on the track list here. It is for sure catchy, and the hook is pretty well done. While the lyrics are average and have some cringe worthy moments, it didnt take away much of my enjoyment.
It's 1:30 and is just filler. Skip it. No good lyrics or beat to save it.
Another short song, but it is one hell of a banger. It's an extremely fun and trippy song with no substance in the lyrics. But I do like the trap flavored instrumental a whole lot. I frequently listened to this song.
You think it will start off one way, and it just takes a sharp left turn. It's surprising and it's awesome. The great beat, which is A$AP styled, and the aesthetic are really good. SchoolboyQ does a good job on his verse, and he fits right in there. The end of the song, while the beat is still really good, the singing is just NO.
This song has a feeling that brings me straight back to the 90's and early 2000's. The beat and most of the lyrics are old school, while still maintaining that pop appeal. Kanye West had some great verses, and I enjoyed this song, A LOT.
Oh My God. Joe Fox and A$AP Rocky pair up with each other on these next 2 songs, and they're amazing. Max B is a very aggressive and dark song. The lyrics and beat are pretty fantastic, and we get to see a whole other side of Rocky we havent seen yet. His delivery is probably the best performance by an artist in 2015. (Snoop in One Shot, One Kill is the best)
An extremely chill song with very grimy bass, and it's fantastic. some lyrical moments are really good on this song too. joe Fox again is here to say that he is an amazing artist. A$AP has another great performance. Just listen to it.
Track after track Rocky has shown he can be a very good artist. Wavybone is probably the most artsy track on here. The beat has gospel like vocals to back it up with a very jazzy tone to it. I thought UGK and Juicy J had some really good verses, and Rocky proves he can be versatile when he goes in. The lyrics are good and overall, an amazing track.
West Side Highway-
This track is okay if you ask me. There is a hook that involves some pretty good and grimy vocals. The song didnt over stay it's welcome, which is good and made me enjoy it a little more. however, this is just a filler track and you don't have to listen to it. But you won't want to kill yourself if you do.
This song may take a while to start, but it's still a great track in my opinion. Not cause of the lyrics, but the beat and the aesthetic. The beat is this monotone piano riff that is so freaking catchy. Rocky has another spot on performance. While the hook is weak and the vocals on the 2nd half are just gross, it's still a good track.
Now, we have our first mediocre song after a while. M'$ has a great beat, but Rocky's performance is SO boring. The lyrics are awful and the quality is all over the place. However, I loved Lil Wayne in this song. The lyrics are still awful, but he goes in HARD, even though his vocals are full of effects.
Why we needed this awful interlude on here, idk. It's so bad. 2:17 is still long for this piece of crap. It's the WORST song on the album. EVERYTHING sucks.
But thank god, we have this saving grace. Everyday is a great track, and it is just so satisfying. Rocky has another great performance on here, with the best hook on the thing as well. The surprising performance from Rod Stewart just fits in a lot better than I thought he would.
Back Home- This is the finale, and it ends on a REALLY high note. This track has another great piano beat that is fast and snappy like the flows on this track. What a way to end a great record.… Expand
Aug 14, 2015Long Live ASAP was a great album but this one is much more. Its a clear improvement with his beats and production. The only complaint I haveLong Live ASAP was a great album but this one is much more. Its a clear improvement with his beats and production. The only complaint I have is his lyrics. While ASAP can make music interesting without really saying anything it still would have been nice to see an improvement in his lyrics. With this new album he's still saying basically the same thing he has been in his previous albums… Expand
Jun 1, 2015I just don't get it maybe. Maybe it's his voice, lack of lyrics, lack of hard driving beats....not sure. But when I listened to this Cd, II just don't get it maybe. Maybe it's his voice, lack of lyrics, lack of hard driving beats....not sure. But when I listened to this Cd, I kept fast forwarding to the next song, wondering "where is the sh*t everyone is clamouring about." I didn't find it. I did like the variety on the album and the appearances from others. But now, after listening to this last week, I can't remember one song.… Expand
