  3. 8.0 |   NME

    Last year's 'Changes' saw the singer take a wrong turn, but here he's back at his best, tapping into his personal experiences – with powerful results

    Justin has finally found himself again

  5. 7.2 |   Pitchfork

    Underneath the ill-advised MLK quotes, you’ll find an earnest pop album that unearths the charisma and agility that helped make Bieber a star

  6. 7.0 |   All Music

  13. 4.0 |   Vinyl Chapters
