5.0 classicSlex CONTRIBUTOR | December 20th 17

A deep focus rumble of effortless cool and crackling heat, Kelela creates a transportive world of sounds and voices that conveys longing, passion and independence on her own ever-shifting terms. A stunningly generous and singularly alien album.

4.0 excellentliterallyzach | October 6th 17

Damn this is a slick fucking record. Effortlessly combs the spacious R&B she's lifted into a creation entirely her own.

2.5 averageBedex | August 9th 19

Again, very mild and bland record, but nice and never unpleasant. Because there are very few sections I dislike it does not deserve to be below 2.5 range, but it really is near the bottom of it. Most tracks are ok but just forgettable. 2 is the only one that kinda struck my interest, it is a cool song. Other tracks try (8,11,13), but fail to ever be near jam-level. 13 is a particularly bad idea. This record feels outdated and like a copycat of other thnigs (stripped-down Submotion Orchestra without jazz elements or prominent drums?), but again I did not really dislike it per se. 2.35

4.0 excellentmoodbrew | March 27th 19

Truthfully, I found this album boring on the first listen. With the exception of a few songs such as "Waitin'" I didn't see the appeal. Listening through a second and third time highlighted the amazing varied electronic backing to the album consistently throughout. A very interesting mesh of RnB and electronic that rewards further listens

2.0 poorNerfHerder | January 13th 18

An extremely well crafted album. Unfortunately, except for a couple of choice cuts, it's nothing but the same old electronic rnb drivel. Shame.

3.0 goodcjbizzlebizzle | December 29th 17

A long Alt. R&B, UK Bass journey that overextends itself as it all seems to be based on one idea that is repeated throughout a 54 minute runtime that could surely be trimmed down quite a bit. Take Me Apart contains some really solid tracks (Frontline, LMK, Truth Or Dare, Altadena, Onanon) that present passionate, lush singing and intense deep bass grooves but none of these songs feel like they will stand the test of time and they don't come off as instant classics. Beyond the standout tracks there is a lot more content which finds Kelela sticking to her talents and similar well-polished bass-centric beats. Considering how most of the songs stick to this formula, listening to the whole album is a chore despite how pleasant the overall sound is. Kelela has major potential and there are actually a lot of good songs here but in the end the album in it's entirety leaves room for improvement.

Her mix tape is fire and then this is ice. Super chill.
