    A cushier, dammed near respectable take on his usual tortured soul-wronged mien, with enough caramel sweetness in a majority of its melodies to differentiate his past from his present.

    Post Malone curates as much as he creates, and there’s not a misplaced feature among the 10 spread across seven of these tracks.
  3. As Post tries new sounds on for size, some git better than others. Sometime it feels as though he’s still trying to figure this out as he goes. But it’s when he keeps things simple and goes beyond the clichés that he feels most like himself. ... Hollywood’s Bleeding is a playlist made for these times. It’s going to be huge.

    Even when he is stretching the boundaries of his sound, as he does in several places on “Hollywood’s Bleeding,” the results feel the opposite of experimental. When you’re an omnivore taking a mortar and pestle to six decades of pop music history and turning it into a smooth slurry, it’s nigh impossible to shock. ... Whatever someone might be hoping to find is in there somewhere. Post Malone is emotional tofu, a skill, not an accident. ... His ambiguity is of an elevated, refined sort.

    Post Malone still provides us with a sprinkling of the classics: bitches, butts and Millie on wrists, it’s appeasing. But for the most part, he created an insightful and eclectic record which is a testament to his versatility and willingness to do exactly what he wants.

    When he’s not wasting time trying to glower, he proves himself surprisingly versatile. ... There are a lot of guests on Hollywood’s Bleeding, and all of them sound engaged.

    It will be a surprise to learn which tracks aren’t singles yet; there’s at least five more hits to be spawned from this thing, and we’ll never hear the end of it.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Let's be honest man, I salute Post for his immense lyrical variety and ideas. I liked stoney considering he wrote some of it as a teen. But compared to beerbongs and bentleys, Hollywood's Bleeding is more exciting from the first song . Internet, Goodbyes, Circles, Die Fonwards Expand

This being his most diverse album, Post has quite possibly solidified his status as a hit maker with a vision; a vision that includes stories to tell and messages to send. The highlights include Hollywood’s Bleeding, Saint-Tropez, Enemies ft. DaBaby, Allergic, Die For Me ft. Future & Halsey, On the Road ft. Meek Mill & Lil Baby, Take What You Want ft. Ozzy Osbourne & Travis Scott, I’m Gonna Be, Staring at the Sun ft. SZA, Sunflower w/Swae Lee, Internet, Goodbyes ft. Young Thug, Myself, I Know, and “Wow.”; honestly. 9/10 = A Expand

    Thought this was okay when I listened to it yesterday but it's growing on me a lot. Love how anti-mainstream a lot of it is. Was skepticalThought this was okay when I listened to it yesterday but it's growing on me a lot. Love how anti-mainstream a lot of it is. Was skeptical about a couple of the features but they were almost all strong,(this is the best I've ever heard Future). also, Take What You Want is the best **** song of 2019 and deserves a Grammy.

    Best Tracks: Take What You Want, Die For Me, Hollywood's Bleeding, On the Road, Goodbyes, Staring at the Sun, Circles, A Thousand Bad Times, I'm Gonna Be, I Know, **** the Internet(the leaked Kanye version)
    Worst Tracks: Saint-Tropez, Enemies, Allergic, Wow.
