UK Release date
US Release date
  1. 9.1 |   A.V. Club

    All rippling synths, distant pulses, and purposeful empty space—his follow-up album is plenty downbeat, but it’s also gorgeous, an immersive headphone masterwork that’s tender and intimate
    Read Review

  2. 9.1 |   Pretty Much Amazing

    A farewell to the up-and-coming mixtape Drizzy and the beginning of a 25-year-old veteran having full command of his verbal arsenal
    Read Review

  3. 9.0 |   PopMatters

    Sure he’s corny, but he’s also an excellent songwriter, and he owns his quirks, which for my money is all I ask for from a pop artist. Especially if you’re going to make something as shiny and attractive to the ears as Take Care

  4. 9.0 |   Slant Magazine

    Remarkably consistent
    Read Review

  5. 9.0 |   The Line Of Best Fit

    Take Care is something approaching a minor classic
    Read Review

  6. 8.6 |   Pitchfork

    [His] unrepentant navel-gazing and obsession with lost love reach new levels on his second proper LP
    Read Review

  7. 8.5 |   BBC

    At its best, Take Care surpasses the impact of Thank Me Later
    Read Review

  8. 8.0 |   Spin

    With Take Care, Drake has his accelerated Kanye West moment — when a little too much ambition and all the asshole feelings he's got inside coalesce into an insular, indulgent, sad-sack hip-hop epic
    Read Review

  9. 8.0 |   The Independent

    He brings something new to the usual hip-hop parade of brandy and bitches, lasciviousness and loyalty
    Read Review

  10. 8.0 |   NME

    An affecting masterpiece easily on par with his debut
    Read Review

  11. 8.0 |   No Ripcord

    [Drake] is fast becoming a self-praising philanderer, the kind of guy who doesn’t see any reason to be apologetic to his girl because fame is his new game
    Read Review

  12. 8.0 |   Rolling Stone

    Take Care truly goes for it with luxe, expansive production
    Read Review

  13. 8.0 |   Consequence Of Sound

    Take Care shines bright, utilizing the same concepts and notions as its predecessor but with far more lethal and appealing results
    Read Review

  14. 8.0 |   State

    A mass appeal pop record with ambitious and progressive production
    Read Review

  15. 8.0 |   AU Review

    Drake has crafted an astute, cohesive masterwork
    Read Review

  16. 8.0 |   The Irish Times

    A bit of a masterclass in melancholic lyrical soul-searching, about lost love and spurned lovers
    Read Review

  17. 7.0 |   Prefix

    Drake would do well to spend less time looking in the mirror
    Read Review

  18. 7.0 |   Drowned In Sound

    Take Care is dense and takes a while to digest, but once you’re in Drake’s world there’s no escaping
    Read Review

  19. 6.8 |   Beats Per Minute

    He now seems trapped between the desire to create a product and a piece of music
    Read Review

  20. 6.0 |   Daily Telegraph

    Both silkily seductive and moodily narcissistic
    Read Review

  21. 6.0 |   Q

    It's great at times, but far more work than it should be. Print edition only

  22. 4.0 |   Rave Magazine

    Another album full of his guilt-wracked declarations of what awful things he’s done, blended with his usual artless come-ons
    Read Review

  23. 3.0 |

    Simply put, Drake isn't interesting and hearing him introspectively croon about his many qualities is like being stuck at a party with that guy who has no social skills
    Read Review

  24. 3.0 |

    Slickly produced and competently arranged. It's just that Drake himself comes across as incredibly arrogant and full of himself
    Read Review

  25. 2.0 |   The Guardian

    As a rapper, he is inert to the point of catatonia and his foregrounded voice becomes swiftly intolerable
