Jul 29, 2019The Big Day is a rare bouquet on full display; a stunningly realized array of color, sound, and sensation that swallows the room. Any structure at risk of pop cliché finds new life through Chance, whose mastery of composition creates spins on existing musical archetypes like new synaptic grooves being carved out for the very first time.
Aug 6, 2019TBD, on the other hand, wrangles with value-laden mindlessness in a manner that is both fun and endearing. TBD succeeds, in other words, on the merit of its recontextualisation of current trends into a project that is equal parts soapbox and sellable product.
Jul 29, 2019With 22 tracks over 80 minutes (including a few skits you’ll skip after the first listen), it’s way too long. It’s themed around Chance’s wedding to his longtime partner, Kristen Corley – a rite of passage that mirrors the “big day” of his debut album release. And like a wedding in which the priest’s sermon is getting in the way of the dinner buffet, you can really feel it drag.
Jul 29, 2019The fact that it’s 22 songs only highlights how disorganized the project is. There are some tracks that I actually like scattered throughout, but none that really compare to the best from his previous projects. His two mixtapes were also similarly eclectic, but these collaborations feel less exciting and more calculated. ... The Big Day will go down as one of the biggest disappointments in rap in recent memory, in no small part because Coloring Book was so great.

the "preachyness" of his music is what makes it unique. and in an era where hip-hop consists of an unhealthy amount of mumble rappers that drone on and on about the same things, that use the most basic of trap beats, and die out in less than a year (Lil Pump, Blueface, etc.) this album is both refreshing and joyful.… Expand

Jul 30, 2019While the production on here is often terrific, the vast majority of this project is filled with terrible bars and bad experimentations. ItWhile the production on here is often terrific, the vast majority of this project is filled with terrible bars and bad experimentations. It was a complete slog with just a few good tracks and a few decent ones in an overlong tracklist. The skits were terrible and the features were hit or miss. I also feel Chance came off as obnoxiously preachy. The album was a major, major disappointment considering his talent level.… Expand
