Bruh that one track with Mos Def under his new moniker Yasiin Bey and Black Thought from the Roots
is all money baby. Freddie lays down some dope rhymes and fat rhythms that borrow much of his new
production preferences he has been experimenting with in his solo stuff. This album is [insert
fire emoji] man ya cannot stop this duo from razing their contemporaries even with all the
firefighting assets in the world.

Album is such a grower. Pinata may have stronger individual tracks but I think that this one is stronger throughout.

This one will be throwing elbows for hip hop AOTY. The features here are pretty much perfect.

3.7 greatVoivod STAFF | September 17th 19

If it weren't from the infinite-replay-value "Giannis" single due to its superficial reference to the Greek Freak, I wouldn't come across this album... As a gangsta hip-hop release, the album stands out due to Madlib's ingenious placement of instrumentals/samples/what have you, along with Gibbs' one-dimensional perhaps, yet always gritty delivery. And yeah, guest artists give the album extra points, while the respective tracks - Education, especially - happen to be the best of the lot. Favorite tracks: Palmolive, Giannis, Education.

3.0 goodcjbizzlebizzle | August 29th 19

The spotlight is way too bright on Freddie Gibbs and his constant flow and treadmill of repetitive lyrical themes makes for an album that starts off with some potential but fizzles out somewhat early. Gibbs has good rap technique but damn does he recycle the same exact topics over and over and over again. The lyrics and rapping are just unrelenting and the beats, while really good in their own right, definitely accentuate this. The beats are technical and make great use of guitars, keys and a wealth of instruments but they often lack a prominent bass or bass drum. This dryness really shoves Gibbs into the forefront and exposes his repetitive style. Honestly, every single guest feature comes off like an oasis of variation and they all outshine the feature rapper here. 'Half Manne, Half Cocaine', 'Palmolive' and 'Crime Pays' live up to the hype but overall it is unclear how people chalk this up as an all-time great rap album.

4.0 excellentDoublez38 | August 21st 19

Bandana is not surprisingly a very good album. Everything is excellently produced, and sounds modern even if it's a return to old-fashioned sampling. Anyway, everything Madlib touches becomes gold. Both form an alchemy as breathtaking as ever. But although they have managed to change their formula and offer an unforgettable album, it is far from worth Pinata (and that's normal). It's really a mandatory detour of the year

2.0 poorRawmeeth38 | July 18th 19

Coming off of the superb Pinata... Bandana doesn’t come close. Freddie sounds alright with some good lines
here and there (also some stinkers) but Madlib must’ve been out of energy in the studio. Beats sound tired,
scattered, unfocused and unimaginative in comparison to his usual form. Freestyle S**t has to be one of the
worst openers this year. I was hoping that was gonna be the only hiccup but the first section of Half Manne was
equally terrible. If this had been released 6 months after pinata it would be acceptable but it has been 5 years,
yikes! “Shit so real gotta use fake names” my god Freddie, genius! You know it’s bad when the best line on the
album comes from a feature. Did however enjoy the snuffalapagus line, killer mike feature and Johnny Sac name
drop. Stand out track was “Crime Pays.”

Bump

4.0 excellentdedex | July 18th 19

Fire beats as always with Madlib, but I feel Freddie's not always at his best (eg Half
Manne Half Cocaine), and all features destroy him. Still an excellent output. 3.8

I've been spinning this constantly the last couple of days. Like it more than Pinata.

Bump

4.5 superbGABEMatic | July 2nd 19

Cements Gibbs? claim that he can rap over anything. Signature Madlib soul-infused beats that compliment the fantastic guest spots. Mos Def feature is nice as hell

Didn't really speak to me, but I can see the appeal. An okay album that might grow on me.

Bump

4.0 excellentchilledpunkrock | June 29th 19

Great album, as expected. Hearing Madlib's take on a trap beat was pretty interesting and production from front to back is excellent as is Freddie's rapping and lyrics (minus that stupid anti-vaxxer stuff). Overall, if you liked Pinata you'll probably like this, the biggest change is Freddie's delivery being a little more dynamic.
