    Khaled sticks to what he knows best throughout this LP and that’s creating hits with ease. The 22 songs on Grateful aren’t anything out of the ordinary for Khaled or any of his featured guests but they remain hits nonetheless.

    The first half of the album, Khaled showed precise execution, stacking banger after banger. Had he sliced the album down to 15 or 16 tracks, he could have secured a very special project.

    With so much talent and so much content, it’s frustrating that he couldn’t deliver a higher-quality product.

    Sadly, nearly every song is made worse by Khaled’s inane shout outs of “another one” or “we the best music”, making you yearn for a Khaled-free version.

    Many of the songs on the second half slide into each other in a forgettable jumble, but Grateful’s best songs are here, too.

    It can be taken as a full listen, and it rolls along easily enough, but most likely listeners will just queue the songs they like and ignore the rest of the filler.

    The diversity he curates quickly turns messy, though, as a surplus of talent doesn't guarantee musical versatility.

When listening, you stumble onto some very strong and impressive songs (Wild Thoughts) but then next thing you know, the album has been contaminated with Bieber and Quavo. I think to say your 8-month old baby produced an album is quite unbelievable however it is really cute to see Khaled proud. I was however upset by the digital cover. I don't think it is appropriate to have one's son paraded topless in a hot tub. Expand

    The singles that came out before the album are all fantastic, but after that the rest of the album is very hit or miss.

The trap songs are definitely the highlight of the album, along with the very cool Calvin Harris collaboration. Expand

    Don't waste your time. The only songs worth listening to here are the ones already released as singles (specifically 'Wild Thoughts' ,Don't waste your time. The only songs worth listening to here are the ones already released as singles (specifically 'Wild Thoughts' , 'Shining' and 'To The Max'). The rest of them are just endless loops of recycled sounds punctuated with endlessly annoying shouts of 'DJ Khaled' and some other irksome associated phrases. 2/10 Expand

    Future is on this record five times. Rick Ross is on it four times. Realising this made me also realise that without collaborators DJ KhaledFuture is on this record five times. Rick Ross is on it four times. Realising this made me also realise that without collaborators DJ Khaled is nothing. They seem to have realised this too, and basically made some noise into the mic before calling it a day. Shining is such a laughable waste of one of the best female technical vocalists of our time, and it really sets the bar for the rest of this 90 minute train-wreck.

    Favourite track is Wild Thoughts. God help us.
    Least favourite is I Love You so Much (don't ask why they didn't capitalise the s, no-one will ever know).

    You want a summer album? Listen to Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1. It's a much more consistent record and is a genuine blast to listen to. Two points for making tracks that are kind of competent at best.
