Critic Reviews

Show All
  • Pitchfork

    The divisive pop star still gets bogged down in melancholy, but the charm of Post Malone’s third album is in his versatile voice and his ability to make a great hook inside pretty much any song.

  • The Ratings Game

    Post Malone is such a lovable artist, mainly because he comes across like an ordinary joe with an ordinary voice and ordinary problems. Somehow, this ordinary guy knows how to put together a song masterfully, so you can’t hate on him when he tries to expand on his artistry.

    It helps that he still has pop at the forefront of his consciousness. Those omnivorous sensibilities are what allow him to synthesize all these conflicting and contrasting styles into a unified sound.

    Hollywood's Bleeding is not a bad album. It not only proves that Post Malone can still create an impactful album but it also speaks to his curation skills.

    Malone’s rapping style is an acquired taste that grows more-ish if you can get used to it. And there are some high points: such as the Father John Misty hook-up ‘Myself’. But the self pity is exhausting.

  • The Fader

    There’s plenty of songs on here that are completely fine. But my main problem with Hollywood’s Bleeding, and maybe Post Malone overall, is that it sounds like it was made by someone who hates music to be consumed by other people who hate music.

  • CU Sentry

    It’s a shame that he didn’t come on the scene when everyone was having a folky, alternative-y, white-guys-with-beards- singing-around-a-campfire phase. Malone would have excelled in that genre for sure.

    “Hollywood’s Bleeding” is the addition Post Malone needed in his catalogue, proving he really is the multi-faceted artist he claims to be through the pop- and rap-filled tracks of his debut “Stoney,” to more rock-driven songs on “Beerbongs and Bentleys.”

  • Hawk Eye

    This is Malone’s most adventurous album yet, but it seems that he is unsure of what genre he’s in. In some songs, it seems like he’s a rap artist and in the next, it sounds like he’s trying to impersonate Blink 182.

    It could’ve been done better overall, and even though Hollywood’s Bleeding does have the flashes evident of a continually dominating force in modern music, Post has been more compelling in the past, and he’s achieved a lot more with much less.

  • MIC DROP MUSIC

    Overall Post Malone hits some high notes on this album but a lot of it comes off as repetitive and formulated. The more genuine songs naturally come off better- and if we cut out some of the fat with unneeded songs he could really make a stellar album. But for now we’ll just have to wait and see what he does next.
