    True to Self may fall short in terms of being a showcase of Bryson Tiller’s maturation, but wins in terms of its aesthetic and addictive refrains.

    He struggles to let his guard down, and ironically, operates best when he keeps it up. Tiller comes off not as the passionate lover, but as the sappy everyman—too bland and full of tropes to be the new hero pouring his heart out in a thunderstorm.

    It makes in confident swagger what it lacks in memorable hooks, but at 19 tracks, it's too imbalanced and stuffed to be considered a classic.

    ‘Run Me Dry’ plays a la mode with a loose dembow rhythm, but, as with the rest of the album, there are plenty of others out there who’ve not only done this already but done it more engagingly.

    On the surface, Tiller still gives off that wallflower baller vibe; the brashness of the debut largely remains. The lack of connection made on the one stylistic shake-up--the lightly jutting "Run Me Dry," a cousin of Rihanna's "Work" and Drake's "One Dance"--suggests that Tiller will likely be better off continuing to refine the sound for which he's known.

    Tiller thinly stretches himself to 19 tracks with no added dimension. It ultimately amounts to a checklist for Broke Boys-turned-Hurt Boys, with Tiller listlessly ticking the boxes.

    Bryson Tiller's new album is not at good as TRAPSOUL but still has good songs that could compete with the singles from his debut.

His debut album brought something fresh to music. This sounds like scrapped songs from TRAPSOUL. There are some decent tracks but none that are standout and make you want to listen on a regular basis. He released it a month early but he could've kept it in order to give us better music. Expand

I liked them a bit, so I gave this a shot. Wasn't all that good. It was rather boring. Not anything all that original. I don't suggest it unless you want some OK R&B trap. Expand

    It's okay. A couple really catchy (and sometimes great) songs, such as "Somethin Tells Me" and "Don't Get Too High". But even at his bestIt's okay. A couple really catchy (and sometimes great) songs, such as "Somethin Tells Me" and "Don't Get Too High". But even at his best moments, Bryson Tiller is a carbon copy of petty Drake and probably won't ascend above that, as evidenced by each one of the 19 songs (19 songs! Why so many?!) on this album.
