Jul 29, 2019The Big Day is a rare bouquet on full display; a stunningly realized array of color, sound, and sensation that swallows the room. Any structure at risk of pop cliché finds new life through Chance, whose mastery of composition creates spins on existing musical archetypes like new synaptic grooves being carved out for the very first time.
Aug 6, 2019TBD, on the other hand, wrangles with value-laden mindlessness in a manner that is both fun and endearing. TBD succeeds, in other words, on the merit of its recontextualisation of current trends into a project that is equal parts soapbox and sellable product.
Jul 29, 2019With 22 tracks over 80 minutes (including a few skits you’ll skip after the first listen), it’s way too long. It’s themed around Chance’s wedding to his longtime partner, Kristen Corley – a rite of passage that mirrors the “big day” of his debut album release. And like a wedding in which the priest’s sermon is getting in the way of the dinner buffet, you can really feel it drag.
Jul 29, 2019The fact that it’s 22 songs only highlights how disorganized the project is. There are some tracks that I actually like scattered throughout, but none that really compare to the best from his previous projects. His two mixtapes were also similarly eclectic, but these collaborations feel less exciting and more calculated. ... The Big Day will go down as one of the biggest disappointments in rap in recent memory, in no small part because Coloring Book was so great.
Jul 27, 2019just an overall slapper. chance doesn't try and do too much outside of what he already done, but thats saying a lot considering he hasjust an overall slapper. chance doesn't try and do too much outside of what he already done, but thats saying a lot considering he has expanded the genre past its limitations. his music is an artform; the type that may be seen as odd or unorthodox. but its these characteristics of his music, and more specifically this album, that allow for such an enjoyable listen.
the "preachyness" of his music is what makes it unique. and in an era where hip-hop consists of an unhealthy amount of mumble rappers that drone on and on about the same things, that use the most basic of trap beats, and die out in less than a year (Lil Pump, Blueface, etc.) this album is both refreshing and joyful.… Expand

Jul 29, 2019One of the most disappointing highly anticipated projects in recent memory. I've been a fan of Chance since "10 Day". After waiting for thisOne of the most disappointing highly anticipated projects in recent memory. I've been a fan of Chance since "10 Day". After waiting for this to come out for over 3 years, I really wanted to like this. But it's just such a major step down from all of his previous work. The flow of the album is extremely incohesive, which is a first in his entire discography. There is tons of filler on this thing that should've been cut from the album. The album felt like it took over 3 hours to get through. Only 5 songs that really stood out to me on a 22 track project. The production on several songs sounds downright boring. Lyrically, Chance also sounds mostly uninspired. A huge disappointment of a "debut album".… Expand
