    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.

    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.
  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.

    More well-executed than his previous releases and undeniably catchy, Hollywood's Bleeding is a huge step forward for the guarded superstar, one that doesn't sacrifice the essential elements that made him such a surprise hitmaker, and pushes him even further into the pop-savvy landscape where he belongs.

    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.

    He made something for everyone on this record. Mix of rock, pop and hip hop. I think it's a great album and I'm digging the route he's going.

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

Muito coeso, Post Malone sempre envolvido tanto na produção quanto na composição do album. Muito bom pro seguimento Pop/Hip-Hop masculino que está um pouco fraco até o momento. Ao contrário de outros artistas do mesmo ramo, Post Malone soube distribuir muito bem a ordem das faixas, não exagerando no conteúdo e mantendo a qualidade, que na minha opinião não é ruim. Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Astronomically better than Stoney, but not as good as b&B. This album comes with very damn good cuts with interesting collaborations but it also has a lot of songs that feel like fillers like "Internet", "I Know", "Saint-Tropez"(one of the worst songs in this album alongside Internet), Sunflower (which felt so out of place), Myself and Wow. That's my only complaint about the record. The rest of the songs, specially Take What You Want, Hollywood's Bleeding, Circles and Allergic are are excellent. Expand
