    Travis Scott’s third album is inarguably his strongest to date. His skill as a curator helps sculpt a sticky, humid, psychedelic world with dazzling production and odd pleasures at every turn.

  • Spin

    if there is a lesson anywhere on Astroworld, it’s there in the song title “Stop Trying To Be God”: the idol Scott has modeled so much of his career after will destroy himself to prove his place as an artistic deity, but Scott is fine just making music that people will eat up.

    The 3rd studio album from established hip-hop artist Travis Scott was one filled with hype and excitement, with some even considering him to take over where Kanye left off – Travis can be viewed as a direct descendant of the combination of seminal Kanye albums ‘808s And Heartbreak‘ and ‘Yeezus‘.

  • The Line Of Best Fit

    By emphasizing his vocal performances and finding the best middle ground he ever has with his bevy of superstar collaborators, he’s made Astroworld a theme park worth revisiting whether you came in as a stan or a skeptic.

  • All Music

    Astroworld undoubtedly feels more like a spectacle than Birds in the Trap did. The sprawling theme park concept, however loose, is a cunning way to rationalize the tactically hospitable variety of producers and featured artists 4/5

  • Sputnik

    Astroworld; 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. Which isn’t particularly characteristic of a great rapper, but is more or less the ingredients of great music.

    Travis has managed to nearly perfect his trap heavy, atmospheric sound, while also adding lyrics and themes that make you think a little more than the subjects explored on his last record, Birds in the Trap Sing Mcknight.

    With this album, I feel as if Travis tried his best to work on something new, both musically and lyrically. However it seems as if he fell back into his niche as the rapper who has the same cadence in 90 percent of his bars, as well as screaming “it’s lit!” after every single line.
