Pitchfork: Jack Harlow's new album is just terrible



Pitchfork reviewed Jack Harlow's new album and gave it a 2.9/10.

Some pull quotes that won't be making the Grammy campaign:

"His second album, Come Home the Kids Miss You, reveals that the showmanship is merely a distraction from some insipid, vacuous music. Harlow’s charisma does not translate onto the record, and, instead, we’re left with a one-trick pony without a discernible trick, a competent rapper who does not flow intricately or write impressively, a pop star who struggles to carry a song on his own."

"The worst [lyric] might be “Can’t lie, I’m on Angus Cloud nine” because “You know I like to dictate things, Kim Jong” is so obviously stupid that it must be a joke."

"Musically, it’s unfulfilling, lacking standout melodies or exciting rhythms. The sound of Come Home the Kids Miss You, in turn, is about as sophisticated and interesting as a Daniel Arsham sculpture, neat at a glance but vapid upon any extended interrogation."

"He is funny online and in interviews and knows how to grab people’s attention. Without much to grasp with his music, it’s easiest just to stare."
