Jun 15, 2018It’s a welcome addition to a genre that has become so occupied with spacey, bare-bones operations and overly simplistic results.
May 25, 2018Throughout the 15-track album, he weaves from hip-hop and psych-rock to R&B and soul, proving that artistically, he will never be confined to a single box.
Jun 1, 2018Though the finished project is as loose and incohesive as its title might suggest, there’s a lot to like about Testing.
May 25, 2018Rocky similarly hopped between styles on his two previous albums, Long.Live.A$AP and At.Long.Last.A$AP, but Testing is a spottier affair. Too many tracks minimise his strengths. ... There are moments, though, when the dimension Rocky created for himself comes back to life.
Jun 12, 2018While in some ways Testing is more musical than anything we've heard from A$AP Rocky before, it's also more confused, with ideas and musical shifts colliding at times to the point of randomness.
May 30, 2018There’s something bewitching about this free-form section of Testing, but there’s still that feeling Rocky's stylistic adventurousness--however appealing--is overwhelming lyrics and flows that aren't as ambitious as the production.
May 29, 2018Instead of creating a new wave, A$AP Rocky has drowned himself in his own ambitions and lost his identity along the way.

He also brings that classic rocky sound with tracks like "Hun43rd" and "Gunz N Butter" . The project could be trimmed down a couple tracks and maybe some different flow may have benefited the album better but it's not to the point where it bothers me .For sure not for everyone but with enough listens it's something i truly believe will be looked back at fondly… Expand

A$AP Rocky's "TESTING" feels a bit rough, however, most of these songs are good. None of these songs, except "A$AP Forever" feels smooth. "Buck Shots" is a great song, but it feels OK. And "Distorted Records" feels like a amazing way to open this album. With song having buzzing sounds in the intro, it feels like if you put a cassette tape and it was completely broken. It's a very creative way to open a album.
Besides that, A$AP Rocky's "TESTING" is a album that feels like it falls short (it sorta does) but if you get pass that, some of the songs off here are good.… Expand
Jun 2, 201872- Which rounds down to a 7. The fact that A$AP Rocky decided to change the style of his music by experimenting with the sounds a bit is72- Which rounds down to a 7. The fact that A$AP Rocky decided to change the style of his music by experimenting with the sounds a bit is tolerable and respectable. But, he failed to execute this as well as he thought it would be. This album for me felt like a run-down version of Kanye West's Yeezus and also 808's and Heartbreaks, since it was not as good enough as them. There were many wasted tracks on the album such as Calldrops with Kodak Black which features Kodak Black "delivering a verse" on the phone. This approach was similar to what Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg did on Nuthin' But A G Thang, however, Calldrops was far from the legendary status of Nuthin But A G Thang. Kids Turned Out Fine is also another wasted track where A$AP Rocky sings through the album, probably striving to come close to the effect of L$D in his previous studio album ALLA. The best songs in the track are Distorted Records, A$AP Forever, Tony Tone, Praise The Lord with Skepta, Gunz N Butter with Juicy J and Purity with vocals from Frank Ocean and legendary Ms. Lauryn Hill. Although Purity was a good song, the vocals from Frank Ocean and Lauryn Hill were too auto-tuned and I was barely able to distinguish between them. In my opinion this is his worst album, however, in saying all that, I consider this album a good album and just like 808's and Heartbreaks, the more listens increases the enjoyment of the album.… Expand

The beats seemed very out of place withThough the project did look promising in the beginning, it did nothing but disappoint in the end. The beats seemed very out of place with A$AP'S voice and failed to give out any sort of pleasure. Most flows I heard were very generic and uninteresting. In all honesty, the entirety of TESTING fails to showcase even one unique song. Instead, the album is blended together into a forgettable mess.… Expand
