My girl Ariana delivering some quality, catchy pop tunes with excellent production values. This is rmuch more in line with what made Dangerous Woman work so well.

4.1 excellentSowingSeason STAFF | February 9th 19

In my Dangerous Woman review I lamented her inability to pull away from industry cliches. It was a breakthrough album for her stylistically, but it was still weighed down by trying to make every track a single, pointlessly featuring guest rappers that added no valuable content (Lil Wayne), etc. I wanted to see her create a cohesive album that featured consistent quality front-to-end, no obviously aggrandizing fluff, and that is also pure Ariana. This is that album, which is kind of unexpected. All I have to say, though, is this: Finally. She's got her style down pat, and has the confidence to deliver on her own without being buoyed by Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne, or Future. None of these tracks would have to be singles. thank u, next has its own vibe and all the songs fit in like equal pieces of the puzzle. Ms. Grande has grown into her massive potential, and even if it lacks a hit like 'Into You' or 'Problem', I respect her infinitely more for her work here. Young pop stars should take note of what she's done.

I roll up my sleeves and rub my hands in anticipation. A new Ariana Grande album has just
been released. I click the Internet Explorer icon on my taskbar and make my way over to
Sputnikmusic.com. I type Grande's name in the search bar, only after spelling her first
name wrong twice. I hurriedly click on her newest album - "thank u, next", is it called?
Hmmm, maybe I could do something about millenials, maybe a bit with that "u", perhaps? I
look next at the tracklist. Ooh, all the titles are in lowercase? Definitely something
there. Eventually, after some pondering, I scroll down, only to read a soundoff that
reads, "I roll up my sleeves and rub my hands in anticipation. A new Ariana Grande album

that reads exactly like all the soundoffs for all the top 40 albums that have come before
it. And I stop in my tracks."

there are sooo many generic junk songs on here with retarded lyrics, current avg is fucked. Even
with great production, it doesn't save bad songwriting

Ariana started dominating herself now she's dominating you. Thank U, Next continues the realness, self care, and positive vibes that were in sweetener, but subtly adds an edgier bite. After all the crazy publicity with highs and devastating lows surrounding her, the album was a perfect testament of dealing with it. Her follow up feels like the perfect companion piece to that album, with reflective lyrics and sonicically consistent. It's a real player as the first and could be the best pop record of the year.

Possible 1.5/5. Needin and Ghostin are inoffensive. Almost as good as Lemonade.

2.5 averagenotkanyewest | February 10th 19

AG has said that she'd like to put out music the way rappers do, and that makes sense to me. This feels like a decent datpiff era rap mixtape- 70% filler, 30% really inspired. The production is pretty limp and forgettable across the board, and I find the more hip-hop leaning songs, although she's obviously having fun making them, tend to play against her strengths.
