    Beerbongs & Bentleys contains banger after banger; it's an incredible drug-induced album.

    There are occasional intrusions of other ideas, like the agonized rock on “Over Now,” and when far more formalist artists like Nicki Minaj or G-Eazy arrive, they sound like teachers trying to enforce order in detention. But in total, Beerbongs & Bentleys is admirably committed to form, one long song of the decontextualized now.

    This moment of fuzzed-out, fucked-up pop music with questionably scant odes to rap music is not designed for posterity. To his credit, Post gets that, and is content to make overlong albums where every song can be a single. Not every song on beerbongs and bentleys can be a single, but there’s enough of them hiding in there to make it one of 2018’s more rewarding releases.

    By no stretch of the imagination is Beerbongs & Bentleys a good album, but it’s admirable in its commitment to its strangely singular dirtbag vision of L.A. luxury. It isn’t consistent enough to mold Post Malone fully into the Soundcloud rap version of Ed Sheeran, but it will certainly allow him to stick around for at least a few more years.
  5. 42
    “Same Bitches” sounds like a song Ty Dolla $ign once made and ultimately scrapped, and Post was more than happy to turn another man’s trash into his treasure, no matter how awkward or forced he sounds among more natural fits G-Eazy and YG.

    The 18 tracks of Beerbongs become an ouroboros of new-money narcissism: Post's obsession with flexing, partying, and banging groupies feeds a growing paranoia that the people around him only like him for exactly those attributes. And it is no small irony that the album's most convincing moments occur when he drops the cool rapper pretense and gets all lonesome cowboy.

    Beerbongs & Bentleys’ defects might be less evident in smaller doses, if you consider it less as an album than a collection of songs made for picking and choosing, for filleting on to playlists, then the aforementioned hooks, choruses and production touches might well outweigh the repetitiousness and predictability.

    Stoney was an absolute mess to me. it had no depth and I could never get a true feel for it, however though B&B has its dull moments I feltStoney was an absolute mess to me. it had no depth and I could never get a true feel for it, however though B&B has its dull moments I felt compelled to give it a perfect score based on the growth alone. Post Malone has gone from a wannabe soundcloud rapper to a potential artist. Watching him perform "Stay" live in Nashville has convinced me that Mr. Malone has some great potential. As I said before, the album itself is by no means a perfect 10, rather more of a strong six to a light seven. However, his growth as an artist is so intriguing that I gave it a 10. The transformation within two years is amazing. I'm excited to watch this man grow more and perhaps create a true 10/10 piece in the future. Expand

I don'tWhen people ask me what my favorite album is, I'll tell them... "beerbongs & bentleys". This album was AMAZING, start to finish. I don't understand why people are hating on this guy. "Stoney" was a great album. I feel like they didn't give it a chance. They just decided that it was going to be bad because Post released songs that came after "White Iverson". But, those were good songs! Stop hating on this man and give him a chance. Expand

    I like Austin as a person the more i see of him (h3 podcast folks wassup!) but I don't know if I get down with the trap that's kind of takenI like Austin as a person the more i see of him (h3 podcast folks wassup!) but I don't know if I get down with the trap that's kind of taken over what's popular at the moment, it seems like to grow as a musician he needs to take more risks and innovate more and develop his own sound. He seems like he's keeping up with trends more than he's pushing boundaries and he needs to get raw and real with his audience and somehow translate that thru his music. Still, he does what he does better than some of the other folks and soundcloud rappers in the game. I'd give it a 7 based on that. Expand

    A decent album, with catchy-yet generic lyrics, Post Malone delivers a much stronger performance than Stoney.

    While the album does have fairly good songs most of it simply blends together with the same ideas and same sounds. You've heard postWhile the album does have fairly good songs most of it simply blends together with the same ideas and same sounds. You've heard post previously and this is more of the same from him. Certainly not terrible and also not great. Expand

    This is not an album, it's a Spotify playlist.
    This guy has no talent what so ever. Stop making stupid people famous!
