  1. 9.0 |   Gig Soup

    Snoop is no novelty or gimmick. He is serious and fun and head and shoulders above his musical mates. BUSH proves it!

  2. 8.0 |   The Guardian

    Snoop back to doing what he does best: sleazin’ and steezin’ over sunny-side-up beats, slipping his name into as many refrains as possible, and celebrating being baked
    Read Review

  3. 8.0 |   The Observer

    Snoop is singing more than ever – he puts the ratio to rapping at 70:30 – but this just accentuates the melodic qualities inherent in his music
    Read Review

  4. 8.0 |   All Music

    One party starter after another rolls out, all of them singalong-worthy with Snoop's stingers and punch lines making him the undisputed Doggfather
    Read Review

  5. 7.0 |   PopMatters

    Bush is another consistent release from Snoop to add to his portfolio, with enough freshness to still be spinning his name in the clubs
    Read Review

  6. 7.0 |   NME

    It’s luscious on the ears, cleverly put together and terrifically good fun, but it feels off the pace
    Read Review

  7. 7.0 |   Rolling Stone

    There's a timeless quality to Snoop's goofy charm
    Read Review

  8. 7.0 |   music OMH

    When it is at its best, the record thrives on the combination of Pharrell’s accomplished production and the veteran rapper’s distinctive vocals
    Read Review

  9. 6.5 |   Beardfood

    Disco meets Parliament, and it is smoother than Malboro Lights mixed with double cream
    Read Review

  10. 6.5 |   Crack

    Bush came about a decade too late. Much like Snoop, the album is immensely likeable – just a little half-baked
    Read Review

  11. 6.5 |   Pitchfork

    Bush is designed to function as an old funk record that you can let run for an entire party’s duration, but its uniformity might make it less appealing over the long haul
    Read Review

  12. 6.0 |   Drowned In Sound

    It is expanding into new territory, but delivering the same result
    Read Review

  13. 6.0 |   The Irish Times

    What’s striking is the Dogg’s continuing embrace of the funk
    Read Review

  14. 6.0 |   State

    There’s nothing necessarily wrong with an artist just wanting to sit back and have a little fun, but this was Snoop’s (and Pharrell’s, let’s be honest) chance to retake the hip-hop crown
    Read Review

  15. 6.0 |   Evening Standard

    There’s a serene bounce to the thing and there are fun exchanges with Gwen Stefani and Charlie Wilson but it’s rarely inspired
    Read Review

  16. 5.0 |   Consequence Of Sound

    Although it’s well-intentioned, you’re very aware that the only reason you’re at this party is because Snoop invited you
    Read Review

  17. 4.0 |   The Music

    It’s competent disco-inflected pop – sure – but Snoop is phoning it in. He’s nearly anonymous
    Read Review

  18. 4.0 |   Time Out

    An aimless album that fills a gap nobody thought needed filling: the one between Magic FM and a teenage boy’s wet dream
    Read Review

  19. 4.0 |   The FT

    There’s nothing slapdash about the execution, with Pharrell Williams helming the production and appearances from Stevie Wonder and Gwen Stefani. But the transformation falls flat
    Read Review

  20. 4.0 |   Q

    Even with Pharrell's help not the Dogg's best day. Print edition only
