  2. 10.0 |   The Independent

    The third solo album from the US artist stars an overwhelming number of (uncredited) guest features, producers and co-writers, but, ultimately, it’s his own, most career-defining work to date

  4. 8.5 |   The 405

    There is no other word for it: this is an event. It’s no exaggeration to say that from pressing play until the last note, the listener emerges feeling they’ve been on a ride. The album is a world to itself, endlessly explorable

  9. 7.4 |   Sputnik Music (staff)

    An hour of ambitious song structures, disparate vocal and instrumental performances, and lyrical esoterica concerning Houston, tied together by Travis Scott’s affection for autotune and lowest common denominator rhymes and flows

  10. 7.0 |   Spectrum Culture

    It doesn’t work because of truth and depth and pathos but because the right people and a big enough budget came together to make something spectacularly entertaining
