  1. 9.0 |   Clash

    It’ll soundtrack this summer, but don’t be fooled into thinking that its time will be up by September. It’s just common sense

  2. 8.0 |   Crack

    A notably polished album which pairs joyous dancehall (Bouf Daddy) with bashment and even smooth G-funk swagger, with decadent flourishes in the form of trumpet solos and sparkling piano chords

  3. 8.0 |   The Guardian

    While the gunshot-littered Clartin and Goodies are far harder than any recent grime track, it’s the upbeat window-winders that really bang. The sound of the summer? You know it makes sense

    A rich, zeitgeisty debut

  5. 8.0 |   Evening Standard

    There’s grime fury on the tougher Clartin’, but Common Sense offers so much more

  6. 8.0 |   NME

    J Hus’s prodigious genre-hopping means that – despite containing only four brief guest spots – his 17-track debut album remains energised and entertainingly unpredictable from end to end

  7. 7.8 |   Pitchfork

    A unique coming-of-age story that shapes the best of grime, Afrobeat, dancehall, and early ’00s hip-hop into a vibrant, wholly unique sound

  8. 7.0 |   Gig Soup

    The debut offering from this Stratford word-smith is packed full of catchy hooks, witty lyrics and tight and tasteful production

  9. 6.0 |   The Irish Times

    Common Sense is most of all about a rapper making his mark and verbalising with boundless confidence
