    Pusha T has managed to elevate his art to new heights, signalling that the artist is nowhere close to being done. Despite being longer than ‘Daytona’, there is succinct preciseness to ‘It’s Almost Dry’ with Pusha’s lyricism, in particular, never left wanting. Alongside the outstanding production, it makes for an instant hip-hop classic.

    Push is in complete control of his flow, his delivery, and his pen game is sharper than it was 20 years ago. ... It's Almost Dry is the perfect complement to Dayonta, creating Pusha's very own gangster saga on wax.

    Despite being almost twice the length, It’s Almost Dry very much adheres to the wisdom of its predecessor: there isn’t an ounce of fat on the lean, mean machine that is the album, with every second aimed with a precise, sinister purpose.

    It’s Almost Dry, Pusha’s fourth solo album, adds levity to his troubled-conscious colloquies, presenting a well-balanced portrait of a complex man with some serious burdens on his heart.

    A broader, more nuanced experience than 2018 ‘Daytona’, Pusha T still reins in the creativity across the album’s 12 track span. Succinct and finessed, ‘It’s Almost Dry’ is a riveting journey, from first to last.

    It’s a musically varied and vocally impressive effort from an artist who continues to cut extraneous elements out of his songwriting, drilling closer to the core of his style.

    “It’s Almost Dry” is no break from form. While sonically much more cohesive than its chaotic predecessor, Pusha fails to push himself into new territories, making the entire album feel safe, rather than an attempt at growth. ... Still, musically, there are several outstanding moments that show off both Kanye West’s and Pharrell Williams’ production prowess.

    “Daytona”, his previous album, and “It’s Almost Dry” are incomparable for two reasons. First, Push experiments with fresh beats and a split“Daytona”, his previous album, and “It’s Almost Dry” are incomparable for two reasons. First, Push experiments with fresh beats and a split production approach in “It’s Almost Dry” from both Pharrell and Kanye. Second Pusha’s delivery in this album is more broad and experimental than that in “Daytona”. In all, it’s almost dry is a well developed follow up album to “Daytona”. Expand

    Pusha T comes thru with his most accessible solo project but continues to cater to his base.

    This album is going to be a staple of the year so far in terms of music, with top notch producing by Ye and Pharrell and features from manyThis album is going to be a staple of the year so far in terms of music, with top notch producing by Ye and Pharrell and features from many artists, this is a classic to be. I love the songs Dreamin Of The Past feat. Ye especially the chorus, Rock N Roll feat. Ye and Cudi which is bittersweet being Ye and Cudi's final track together but is one of th3 best, Diet Cokeand Scrape It Off feat. Lil Uzi Vert and Don Toliver is amazing. I love this album, though some songs like Just So You Remember are a bit weak and some audio is a bit off like Ye's verse in D.O.T.P, I think it could be another homerun from Pusha since Daytona.

    I thought the album was sonically weak. The music and beats were subpar. I am a huge Push fan but this was not a good album.
