Aug 20, 2018A fascinating and sneakily complex pop album that adds new creative wrinkles to Grande’s already estimable repertoire.
Aug 24, 2018Confident and empowered, Sweetener illustrates once again that Grande is an unparalleled pop chameleon.
Aug 17, 2018Ariana’s core fanbase are bound to find an instant, sugar-rush of pleasure in this fascinating side-step from an artist who – until now – has made her name by stomping down the traditional pop path.
Aug 17, 2018The songs are shiny and catchy of course. ... Yet there’s an uncommon sense of self-possession to this album--a kind of ecstatic calm--that sets it apart from everything else on Top 40 radio right now.
Aug 17, 2018For the most part, though, the formula results in an album that's both consistent and refined, a reflection of Grande's growing awareness of herself as an artist and her place in the world.
Aug 17, 2018It sounds like the work of an artist torn between doing exactly what she pleases and, perhaps understandably under the circumstances, giving her audience what they want. But there’s no doubt which of these impulses is more successful artistically.

She’s experimenting with her sound, and that’s how someone can grow artistically. Her vocals on the album are so powerful, and she hasn’t only used her head voice (that gives me chills everytime), but her lower register too. Definitely a great album!!! Everything about it is perfect!… Expand

Grande com este álbum assume riscos em sua carreira ao unir-se com Pharrell Williams que vem de um vasto histórico de canções "fora de sincronia" do que está fazendo sucesso hoje em dia, explorando outras formas, como por exemplo em the light is coming que é totalmente diferente do que está no topo dos charts hoje em dia… Expand

I like the fact that she chose to take a risk and get out of her comfort zone to try something out of the ordinary. It shows that her and her music is continuing to grow and develop. Some people like change, some don’t. I definitely enjoyed the album and I’m now looking forward for other genres and sounds Ariana will surprise us with!… Expand

Jan 15, 2020Sweetener is one of those albums that grow overtime, this is definitely not Ariana's best album. Sweetener had 16 co-writers excluding nickiSweetener is one of those albums that grow overtime, this is definitely not Ariana's best album. Sweetener had 16 co-writers excluding nicki minaj and missy elliott. Pharrell was the main producer of sweetener, let's say, I am disappointed. His production within this album isn't great. I didnt enjoy a few songs, borderline, blazed, successful and Pete davidson. God is a woman, everytime, r.e.m, breathin and goodnight n go being my favorites.
I can see there are at least 2 filler songs, blazed and borderline. Sweetener shows her funky side whilst also being emotional, that isn't easy to do. Overall I think this album could've done better without pharrell, maybe with more max martin or even poo bear.… Expand
