Critical reception[edit]

Pitchfork[6]6.8/10

Writing for Pitchfork, Dani Blum said SiR took a darker approach with this album claiming it is a "sad and gauzy R&B collection", saying "at 14 songs, the album feels bloated. Its swirl of features are hit or miss. Smino and Kendrick Lamar inject life into the spaces SiR hollows out." The writer continued to say "The effect is an album that bristles with paranoia. SiR creates conditions in which actual relationships are impossible: He's always in the wrong place at the wrong time; he replays conversations that never happened; he waits for calls he won’t take."[6]
