  • Rolling Stone

    rapper’s posthumous LP is another reminder of his navel-gazing pop mastery.

  • Pitchfork

    The Chicago artist’s first posthumous release doesn’t feel like a final goodbye, but instead a continued look inside his world. It’s bleak and beautiful.

  • All Music

    Legends Never Die is as strong a collection of Juice WRLD songs as any, with already-searing songs made more intense by the shadow of their departed creator looming over the album.

  • The Tower

    Although the album itself does not provide fans with closure, many songs on the album exhibited Juice WRLD’s proclivity to fight the things that plagued his life. His melancholic lyricism often disguises the strength he exudes, both in his style of simplistic yet clever wordplay, and in his undeniable will to keep creating new content.

  • NME

    This release ensures that Juice’s estate is well taken care of, but the album does little to serve his legacy justice. It sputters and starts like a stuttering engine; it’s painfully obvious that the creativity behind the work is missing.

  • The Minnesota Daily

    From an overnight Soundcloud sensation to a strong contender for the hip-hop throne, Juice WRLD ensures his legacy lives on with “Legends Never Die.”

  • Medium

    My final thoughts would be that this album was very very good. I wouldn’t say it’s better than any of his previous albums but I’ve only listened a few times and it definitely has potential to be one of his best and definitely will be one of my favorites from the year.

  • HipHop DX

    Legends Never Die functions as a goodbye to and from Juice WRLD. His exact wishes for a post-death album might never be known, but this avoids feeling exploitative.

  • Thirstkey

    critically speaking, it's painfully repetitive and just way too long. The potential can be seen in intervals but it all feels weighed down by the lengthy tracklist.

  • Sputnik Music

    This record is pretty solid and it's better to stop while you're ahead. I think both Juice Wrld fans and casual hip hop heads will be satisfied with what this record brings to the table.

  • The Line of Best Fit

    This posthumous release, intended to bring together everything Juice was working on before his death, is both a celebration and a standing document to the intricate mind he truly was, and it indeed does justice to a unique mind.

  • Legends Will Never Die

    This is just a tad bit better than the latest Pop Smoke album Shoot for the Stars, Aim for the Moon. It was clearly put together out of passion rather than just money, but there are slightly more hits than misses during the 55 minutes of this final product.

  • The Odyssey

    This album was what every fan needed: One last album to be cherished by fans forever. If this was the last of Juice WRLD's music, it was one phenomenal piece of work.

  • The Guardian

    Barely 21, Juice WRLD was only just coming into his own as a man and artist, his talent still taking shape as he matured. Legends Never Die reveals a glum ringleader still finding himself.

  • Ratings Game Music

    Legends Never Die might be one of the most beautifully disturbing albums I’ve listened to in a while. Throughout it, Juice WRLD talks about depression, drug-abuse, and even dying. Matter of fact, while listening to the album, I truly thought to myself that we could’ve saved him. But just like Notorious B.I.G., Pop Smoke, Lil Peep, Tupac, XXXTENTACION, Mac Miller, and Nipsey Hussle’s work before they died, Legends Never Die feels like a cruel ending to a movie that you would want hundreds of sequels to.

  • Clash Magazine

    'Legends Never Die' is poetic, prophetic and poignant.

  • Urban Hotness

    All in all, Legends Never Die is exactly what his fans anticipated and needed. He continues to touch people from beyond the grave albeit bittersweet, as Juice is not here to enjoy the album’s success.

  • 25YL

    Perhaps his early death will solidify his legendary, voice-of-a-generation status in the way this album’s para-text seems confident it will, and by the end of what is easily his best record, that hype certainly seems convincing.

    As the album’s title states, “Legends Never Die,” and Juice’s legacy lives on in his catchy flows and familiar choruses.

  • The Puyallup Post

    Juice WRLD’s latest album is a libretto of eerie, emotional and explicit. The late musical artist leaves a career worthy of being called legendary.

  • PAN M 360

    There’s no reinvention on Legends Never Die, it’s an album for fans already convinced by his work. Even if it’s unlikely to generate new fans, it will serve as a balm to those still in mourning, some seven months after his death.

  • Afterglow

    So, with this new album, while it is a reminder of the pain Juice WRLD endured from anxiety, depression, drug abuse, and his eventual death, it is also a message from him that he cared about all his fans, and ultimately left the impact on the world that he intended.

    Ultimately, the 21 songs on this posthumous effort are difficult to listen to—even when they’re at their most redemptive.

  • Hit Up Ange

    ‘Legends Never Die’ was always going to be an emotional project, Juice really had a special impact on people while he was here and he still does now. He was inspirational and taught us to chase our dreams, Juice would laugh with us and cry with us. I do hope that there is more music from Juice to be released by his team as we know how much he did record and how creatively gifted he was. Legends never die, and Juice's legacy isn't going to disappear anytime soon.

    Ultimately, Legends Never Die, the second major posthumous rap album of 2020, is an enjoyable, fitting & well-rounded LP from Juice WRLD.

  • Barricade Magazine

    Overall, this was a pretty tasteful tribute to Juice WRLD’s memory. It's heart-wrenching that Juice was unable to continue his artistic vision himself, but it's heartwarming that this record can more or less represent what that could have been.

  • Ben's Beat

    It’s hard to say just how much more enjoyable this album would be if Juice were still here with us today. But much like most of XXXTENTACION’s posthumous work, it’s going to be hard to return back to these tracks without being struck with a wave of unfathomable sadness. Luckily, most of these tracks feel much more like Juice’s intentions were behind them, and a couple great new tracks to remember him by is much better than nothing.

  • Head Topics

    Sonically, compared with Juice WRLD’s early SoundCloud material, “Legends Never Die,” is positively lush — not over-produced, but comparatively elaborately arranged.
