Jan 18, 2023When Måneskin tap into the youthful exuberance and fiery eccentricity that got them here in the first place, though, they’re still utterly unstoppable.
Jan 23, 2023With Rush!, Måneskin make good on their Eurovision rock promise, delivering an album that's campy, inspired, and thrilling all at the same time.
Classic Rock MagazineMar 9, 2023None of the 17 songs waste any time getting where they're ultimately going. ... Seriously, it's time to believe. [Apr 2023, p.74]
Jan 18, 2023Thanks to co-producer Max Martin, who contributed to some of these tracks and knows his way around a hook, their version of rock is an aural food processor of stadium chants, processed-sounding beats, and wind-tunnel blare. Sometimes, an undeniable ear-worm emerges. ... It’s hard to tell how seriously Måneskin take any of this silliness. Certainly, being over the top suits them best.
Jan 23, 2023Pop uber-producer Max Martin is somewhat inevitably on hand to make sure the album gleams even harder than this sharp, lurid foursome do on their own. Unfortunately, Rush! is also a record that dashes about trying to tick all the boxes, with Måneskin’s English-language songs far outnumbering the Italian ones.
Jan 19, 2023Unsurprisingly, it’s overcooked in places. In addition to super-producer Max Martin (Taylor Swift, Katy Perry), an array of producers come and go on the 17-track record that nearly stretches to a full hour. ... But little could possibly dampen the record’s spirit and spunk.
Feb 7, 2023Rush!, their first album recorded mainly in English, is absolutely terrible at every conceivable level: vocally grating, lyrically unimaginative, and musically one-dimensional. It is a rock album that sounds worse the louder you play it.

Feb 14, 2023Awesome Album. I love many tracks, Mammamia, Koolkids. Its a step back from the previous 2 albums but still very good

The tracks are powerful and engaging, attracting all musical tastes (with the exception of the elderly who cannot accept that rock has changed in the last decades). The order of the tracks are controversial and it could have more tracks in italian too. Moreover, stop trying to go back to the 1980s. Music and rock have changed and you need to accept this.… Expand

KOOL KIDS It's a nice, classic angst rock anthem. The lyrics keep the vibe, but add very little interest.
IF NOT FOR YOU It's a classic sing-songy heartache ballad. The strings are a highlight, but the lyrics lack ambition.
BLA BLA BLA This song has tongue-in-cheek songwriting with a complementary production. It is angry and unserious.
READ YOUR DIARY Another good catchy dark pop-rock track. Lyrics are good with a clear perspective.
FEEL A catchy rock song. It is simple and effective. Lyrics are repetitive, sort of like a high.
OWN MY MIND Nice, heavy, and catchy. It has sexy and dark lyrics, but not a unique story.
BABY SAID Pop-rock done really well. The guitar is a standout. The lyrics are catchy and effective.
LA FINE It's nice and steady. A bit soft, but still heavy and electric. The lyrics are good and fitting.
MARK CHAPMAN Fast, intense, and almost scary like a chase. Lyrics are a twisted, horrific obsession.
DON'T WANNA SLEEP A gothic pop-infused rock bop. Catchy with a nice guitar solo and drums. Lyrics perfectly match the chaos.
GOSSIP (feat. Tom Morello) Intense, punchy, and rebellious. Incredible guitar moments. The lyrics are another familiar tale of the dark side of Hollywood.
TIMEZONE It's an angst-filled love ballad, clean and perfected. The lyrics perfectly convey the despair.
IL DONO DELLA VITA Another great rock ballad. It's gorgeous with a mysterious post-chorus into bridge and powerful, poetic lyrics.
GASOLINE Dark and really heavy. Incredibly rebellious and provocative. Lyrics are a perfect match.
MAMMAMIA A perfect punchy production where all components work harmoniously. The verses grow in fury and explode into the chorus. Great bridge and a chaotic outro. The lyrics are far from safe or predictable. They complement the listening experience and add pizzazz.
SUPERMODEL This is pop-rock perfection. It's not groundbreaking, but it is the best of the best. The lyrics tell a nice, distinct story.
THE LONLIEST An absolute God-tier song. Perfectly done. The lyrics are beautiful and powerful.
Overall the album is a refreshing, pop-rock explosion. The influence of producer Max Martin is noticeable, bringing great hooks and clean production to the album. There are some sloppy lyrics that hold the album back from greatness, but it's certainly worth a listen. I give the album a final score of 8.0 out of 10.
I think what Måneskin is doing is cool. I like their aesthetic. I think their songwriting when it's deep, and I like their sound when it's daring. Their Italian songwriting is a highlight.… Expand

A Rock album that brings back old memories, but which the more experienced can recognize isThe power of showbisness has bewitched Måneskin. A Rock album that brings back old memories, but which the more experienced can recognize is not revolutionary. Revival of the past with calibrated production, but lacks some depth in the choice of terms, but that was not their goal. In order to maintain their success they went for commercial rock, rightly so, not to be forgotten two years after Eurovision. But they can give and must give more, if they do not want to make rock collapse in this rush to the ER to revive it.… Expand
