    Princess Nokia's genre-surfing might be attention-grabbing, but it's her honesty, openness and clarity of expression that make her a musician you can really invest in. [May 2020, p.111]

    Recorded over a week in New York, Everything Sucks is the brash, unapologetic sister to the more sensitive Everything is Beautiful.

    The decision to segregate different moods and styles into these contrasting releases was a risky one, but it pays off in that both records remain interesting for their duration. Princess Nokia is for the most part a great rapper, but can sometimes lapse into an artless earnestness, as this enjoyable but patchy diptych demonstrates.

    Everything is Beautiful/Everything Sucks is a fun album that allows Frasqueri to show both sides of her personality. ... The main problem with Everything is Beautiful/Everything Sucks is that it doesn’t contain anything as devastating as ‘G.O.A.T.’, ‘Tomboy’ or ‘Kitana’. The songs never quite hit the same vein of intensity, catchiness and lyrical abstraction. There are moments when it comes close.

    Everything Sucks was made primarily in the span of one intense week in New York, with friend and producer Chris Lare (aka owwwls), and that tight turnaround is evident. Its 10 songs are a locust swarm of angst, restless and frantic.
  6. There are moments of brilliance on both records. ... Thematically, ‘Everything Sucks’ and ‘Everything is Beautiful’ fail to deliver anything new.

    The first half of the album really seem like a noisy and glaring draft. This part clearly made me lower the score. The second half is moreThe first half of the album really seem like a noisy and glaring draft. This part clearly made me lower the score. The second half is more agreable to listen to. Lyrically, Princess Nokia doesn't disappoint us: she is still sharp, precise and intelligble, even if she barely reaches the harshness of her former album 1992 (with titles like 'Brujas', 'Mine' or 'Kitana'). Production and instrumentals are awesome as they always were in a Princess Nokia piece of work, and are perfectly oriented to a darker style and lyrics.
    The idea of publishing a double album the same day is brilliant and makes a lot of sens in Princess Nokia's experience of life.
