  1. 8.0 |   NME

    Migos are firing on all cylinders here, their new record a lush, chaotic patchwork that pops with primary colours. The fab three have done it again

  2. 8.0 |   The Guardian

    Weirdness and wonder between the iced-out watches
    Read Review

  3. 8.0 |   PopMatters

    Quavo sings, "Mama told me, 'Break out of these chains, son, and you'll go far'". Far they've gone, but they're still pushing forward
    Read Review

  4. 8.0 |   Q

    Delivers with a scale and swagger that's hard to resist. Print edition only

  5. 7.5 |   Consequence Of Sound

    The right medicine but the wrong dosage
    Read Review

  6. 7.5 |   The 405

    It's easy to look at the bloated tracklist of CULTURE II and balk, but Migos have striven to deliver on every moment of their ambitious sequel. Cash grab or not, it hardly skimps on thrills

  7. 7.5 |   Pretty Much Amazing

    Migos have mastered their craft, but they spend too much time delivering what we expect instead of exploring their more interesting caprices. They have the talent and they have our attention—we'll see what they do with it on Culture III

  8. 7.0 |   Slant Magazine

    Culture II is both bigger and bolder than its predecessor but with an inevitably diminished impact
    Read Review

  9. 7.0 |   All Music

    Migos could have delivered another culture-defining classic with just a little trimming. Instead, they've taken what should have been a potent, big league statement and diluted it

  10. 6.4 |   Pitchfork

    Where Culture was an event, its follow-up feels more like an occurrence, the quality of its songs handicapped by an album that plays like a long and formless grab bag

  11. 6.0 |   Exclaim

    Not unlike how they re-popularized that now-ubiquitous flow, we may have Migos to credit for the return of rap albums that run on the unnecessarily lengthy side

  12. 6.0 |   Crack

    It’s one thing to have everyone listening to your music, but it’s another to have them listening for all the right reasons
    Read Review

  13. 6.0 |   Spectrum Culture

    Really isn’t worth listening to more than once in full
    Read Review

  14. 6.0 |   Tiny Mix Tapes

    So the question remains: Are you honestly able to listen to Culture II straight through? The answer, on the other hand, means less than ever

  15. 6.0 |   The Observer

    Packed with star power, bragging and bling
    Read Review

  16. 6.0 |   Rolling Stone

    Ultimately feels less like a celebratory howl from the mountaintop than a transitional inventory dump
    Read Review

  17. 4.0 |   Sputnik Music (staff)

    Culture II sounds like a satire of every other rap album released by a major label these days, catering to the lowest common denominator of casual music listener
