    She’s made a forward stride with a story of indignation and despondence like little else we’ve heard in hip-hop.

    Megan is her own best advocate, and Traumazine is a testament to this principle. Elsewhere, Megan displays her penchant for bringing out the best in her collaborators, molding herself to bring out the most recognizable aspects of their style.

    Traumazine is an album that leaves you reeling slightly, both impressed and strangely grateful – convinced of Megan Thee Stallion’s brilliance, and glad you’re not on the receiving end of it.

    A thrill ride of a listen, a motley mix of slick bops and searing confessionals that wonderfully encapsulate all of her various vibes.

    Traumazine is a success in its own right, solidifying her position amongst rap’s big stars of the 2020s.

    As a concept album, Traumazine is uneven. But as an embodiment of the phrase “healing isn’t linear,” its significance couldn’t be more clear.

    Megan displays more vulnerability on “Anxiety” than she ever has before, letting the person behind the swagger show. ... Megan’s attempts at pop and R&B crossover are less successful. Traumazine’s production, full of cavernous piano chords and punchy 808s, finds a sweet spot that’s mainstream enough to appeal to a wide audience while still threatening to blow out your woofers.

    Great album from Megan. She was talking real talk on the album. Any denial of her talent is just hate at this point.

    Megan Thee Stallion's second studio album "Traumazine" is more multifaceted, a little soft and delicious, like "sweetest pie", after her debutMegan Thee Stallion's second studio album "Traumazine" is more multifaceted, a little soft and delicious, like "sweetest pie", after her debut album, giving power, Megan decided to go for a softer transition, giving the themes of sex and love in a diverse wrapper, from power up to airiness, and new onesthe collaborators perfectly complement the album, giving it their own zest, as well as a sound on the desks that correspond to this particular artist, for example, Jhene Aiko takes the song to the sound of his latest released album “Chilombo”.
    Megan herself does not lag behind, changing the movement of music from the synth "NDA" to the club "Her" and the rnb sound "Not Nice", while the reading is excellent as always, and the softening in the tracks is much cleaner than in the debut album.
    In the end, "Traumazine" may have become the more pop side of Thee Stallion, but it gave her more opportunities to reach her potential and a vibe that is more noticeable than on the rap artist's debut record, and the release accompanying problems with the label on which she is gives album, the confrontation that Megan Thee Stallion herself personifies.

    Not as good as her debut, but still some solid songs. Sweetest Pie ft. Dua Lipa is still unbearable in my opinion.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Boring, Megan hasn't grown as an artist. The title of the song is only captured in 3-4 songs out of 18. The rest she's just talking of the same old thing, iykyk....ah! Expand
