Score:87

User Score:8.4

Consequence of Sound - 91

Of course, the album is a highly polished product and not some diary page. But it feels lived in, truthful, authentic.In full:https://consequenceofsound.net/2019/02/album-review-ariana-grande-thank-u-next/

Pitchfork - 7.9

Released five months after the catharsis of Sweetener, these songs of affirmation feel lighter, freer, and more fun, carried effortlessly by Grande’s undeniable voice.In full:https://pitchfork.com/reviews/albums/ariana-grande-thank-u-next/

 

___________

 

All Music - 90

A singer who not only knows what she wants but knows that she's wanted, and that attitude unites and propels thank u, next through its ballads and R&B jams, turning it into an album that embodies every aspect of Ariana Grande, the grand pop star.

Slant Magazine - 70

Thank U, Next is easily Grande’s most sonically consistent effort to date, even if that means some of the album’s sleek R&B tracks tend to blur together.In full:https://www.slantmagazine.com/music/review-ariana-grande-embraces-her-flaws-on-thank-u-next/

The Guardian - 4/5

One Criticism levelled at Ariana Grande is that while her gymnastic, Mariah Carey-level vocal is impressive, it also acts like a gilded cage.In full:https://www.theguardian.com/music/2019/feb/08/ariana-grande-thank-u-next-review

INDEPENDENT.CO.UK - 4/5

It lacks a centrepiece to match the arresting depth and space of Sweetener’s 'God Is A Woman', but Grande handles its shifting moods and cast of producers with engaging class and momentum.In full:https://www.independent.co.uk/arts-entertainment/music/reviews/ariana-grande-thank-u-next-review-new-album-stream-pete-davidson-mac-miller-grammys-a8769931.html

The Line of Best Fit - 90

It’s contradictory, assured yet tender. It’s delicate but strong. It’s sweet pop music wrapped in an unbreakable metal shell. It’s beautiful but vulgar. It is, frankly, much more than we could have ever hoped for from her.In full:https://www.thelineofbestfit.com/reviews/albums/ariana-grande-thank-u-next-album-review

 

___________

 

Los Angeles Times - 90

Thank U, Next flaunts Grande’s emotional healing; it’s suffused with the joy of discovering that what didn’t kill her really did make her stronger. ... As eager as she sounds on Thank U, Next to embrace new ideas and attitudes, the album shows that she can still do the old-fashioned stuff--the big vocals that connect her back to Mariah and Whitney and Celine--when she wants to.In full:https://www.latimes.com/entertainment/music/la-et-ms-ariana-grande-thank-u-next-grammys-20190208-story.html
