    Beerbongs & Bentleys contains banger after banger; it's an incredible drug-induced album.
  2. 70
    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

    An interesting work. It pleases the masses without putting at risk its quality. A perfect balance. Nothing too deep, nothing too dumb.

    beerbongs and bentleys is a demonstration of how "flexing" beats talent on the charts, but he does show his incredible songwriting abilitiesbeerbongs and bentleys is a demonstration of how "flexing" beats talent on the charts, but he does show his incredible songwriting abilities on certain songs sprinkled into the album

    1. Paranoid, a song with Posty talking about how he is Paranoid while showing off soon after 4/10
    2. Spoil My Night, good vocals on a catchy beat, Swae Lee's lyrics are really bad tho 7/10
    3. Rich & Sad, how can the "Paranoid" Posty think making a song about him being rich is smart 3/10
    4. Zack and Codeine, very catchy song that glorifies doing drugs 8/10
    5. Takin' Shots, its just a filler song 2/10
    6. rockstar ft. 21 Savage, this is one of his best songs and shows his writing talents 9/10
    7. Over Now, a really boring song to sit through 2/10
    8. Psycho ft. Ty Dolla $ign, the typical Post Malone flexing hit song 7/10
    9. Better Now, an emotional song that may just be his best song 10/10
    10. Ball For Me ft. Nicki Minaj, Nicki's verse is great but otherwise its a basic song with a bad beat 7/10
    11. Otherside, filler 1/10
    12. Stay, another filler that tries not to be 1/10
    13. Blame It On Me, boring filler 0/10
    14. Same **** ft. G-Eazy & YG, really catchy but YG hurts the track 8/10
    15. Jonestown (Interlude), its a basic interlude 5/10
    16. 92 Explorer, love the chorus and the song is a good change from the boring second half 9/10
    17. Candy Paint, its a catchy song and nothing more 8/10
    18. Sugar Wraith, the wannabe Candy Paint 3/10

    Standouts are rockstar, Better Now and 92 Explorer

    Overall rating: 5.2 (rounded down to 5) Posty releases the most average album with really good and bad songs mixed together. i expected more from his second album.

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