    Nobody expected Azalea to come back super talented and with an entirely new shtick. Nonetheless, In My Defense could have been a tad bit more introspective or at the very least, fun.

    Additions such as Kash Doll and Juicy J are perfect on paper, but beyond justifying their individual presence in the rap realm, do little to save a project which unfortunately suffers from the sophomore slump.

    The album is stacked with cartoonish approximations of what she thinks a rap song should sound like: shivers of bass, the occasional “skrrrt,” Mad Libs of designer brands and bodily fluids. Many sound like direct imitations of the rappers she admires.

    After a half-decade of life lessons, Azalea could have gone in a certain cathartic and mature direction. However, on In My Defense, she opted for a less gracious and, ultimately, exhausted route.

    An amazing growth from her previous work. Unfairly judged by metacrituc...but atleast the fans have taste and have rated it super high.

    So many catchy songs and clever lyrics. I’m leaving a 10 due to the fact that Critics need to stop sleeping on Iggy.

    Good rap for the Princess. Para ser un álbum independiente le quedó bien bueno. Rap del bueno

    Mal produzido o álbum é uma mistura de confusão , sem nenhum aspecto de criatividade.
