    Honestly, Nevermind is a welcome development in the Drake saga, a left turn off what was starting to seem like an endless stretch of trap-heavy highway. The destination is still sad and self-involved, but at least the scenery is colorful and never boring.

    A small marvel of bodily exuberance — appealingly weightless, escapist and zealously free. An album of entrancing club music, it’s a pointed evolution toward a new era for one of music’s most influential stars. It is also a Drake album made up almost wholly of the parts of Drake albums that send hip-hop purists into conniptions.

    The album achieves something mischievously unguarded: a collection of blissful dance tunes constructed for embrace and abandon. Drake takes a leap further into uncharted realms than any of his peers, offering a refreshing sign of what’s to come.

    A puzzle that will take a long time to fully unlock, ‘Honestly, Nevermind’ stands on these immediate listens as Drake’s most daring gesture, a devastating about-turn that will fascinate and frustrate in equal measure.

    Instead of taking a much-needed left turn and cranking it up to 11, he's settled for something safe — something too smooth, too worldly.

    Honestly, Nevermind isn’t a bad album, but it is disappointing.

    Drake breaks no new ground here, and retreads the same tales of love and regret so many times that the songs bleed together. If you just want background music for making love, this is your album. If you want to have your imagination captured by fantastic tales or be taken on an emotional roller coaster, don’t bother. There are no highs or lows here. We’re on medium the whole time.

    It's not very good. I get what he was trying to do, but my god did he fail. It's okay to try something new, Ye did it with 808s and again withIt's not very good. I get what he was trying to do, but my god did he fail. It's okay to try something new, Ye did it with 808s and again with Yeezus, but Drake is no Ye. Drake's strength comes from his easy-to-listen-to rap. It was nothing truly exceptional, but it sold. Drake was never groundbreaking, he didn't have to be. This, however, is not very good. It's generic, trite, and all-around disappointing. Expand

    After CLB (which I thought was okay) I was hoping Drake's next album would be one of his best. Pretty disappointed by this one I can't lie. IAfter CLB (which I thought was okay) I was hoping Drake's next album would be one of his best. Pretty disappointed by this one I can't lie. I guess he deserves credit for switching up his sound but he did not do it well in my opinion. This could've been a great album and it has its merits but everything about it is extremely underwhelming overall. I don't like the album as a whole, and the few songs that are okay are nowhere near Drake's best. Even his other albums that I would consider on the weaker side have at least one or two songs I really like that bring me back to it, but I can't say the same about this album. I hope his next is better. Expand

Drake continues to prove that he doesn't give a damn about his music anymore and proceeds to curse our ears with these abhorrent sound waves coming into our ear canals, vibrating our eardrums, producing a sound that he has the audacity to call quality music. Avoid this album at all costs Expand
