4.5 superbNine | March 5th 19

Little Simz made a "Venom" that's miles better than Eminem's. Nice stuff here.

This is definitely the best album released so far this year. The beat to 101fm has been stuck in my head for days.

this album was amazing from top to bottom. Little Simz was on point with the lyrics. definitely album of the year along with CZARFACE.

Definitely like this a lot. Seems easy to throw on; wonder if further listens will reveal depth in the lyricismr

4.0 excellentuntitIed | July 29th 19

On this project, Simz covers a variety of topics ranging from gun violence (see ?wound?) to mental health (see ?therapy?) to being a woman in the rap industry (see ?boss? and ?venom?). The instrumentals show a mixture of classic hip-hop and grime influences and prove to be effective templates for each vocal performance. On that topic, it?s the vocal performances across this thing that are truly the main point of attraction. Simz manages to be both explosive and technically impressive throughout, rarely giving off even a hint of lyrical stumble. There?s nothing to complain about here, aside from perhaps a lack of any grand over-arching theme. What the album lacks in ambition, however, it more than makes up for in precision. GREY Area is a considerable testament to the potency and directness of hip-hop when done properly. It?s also most likely Simz? best work to date. 84/100

4.5 superbDoublez38 | June 25th 19

Little Simz is one of the most talented female rappers currently, each project is a step forward. This one is probably her apogee (for the moment). these 35 minutes are carefully calculated and leave no room for waste. she musically and lyrically pays tribute to the boom-bap by adding some touches of modernism. she should by her talent have more impact commercially but she lacks something to achieve it

3.5 greatcjbizzlebizzle | April 29th 19

This album blows you away in the first half and slowly fades away in the second half where it is still very good but loses consistency and focus. Offence, Boss, Venom and Selfish are all fantastic and show just how great of a lyricist and rapper Little Simz is capable of being switching flows and rapping over great jazzy beats. The bass in the first two tracks, the guitar in Wounds and the strings in Venom are all highlights and produced in the context of a rap-centric album so very well. After Venom things just don't feel as clean and focused with Pressure being a standout of the second half but the last three songs on the album all feeling like B-sides from another EP that don't fit quite as well into the album as a whole. Grey Area has three of the best hip hop tracks of 2019 thus far but fades off considerably in its second half.
