87% 4WIM Rating
100% Slant Magazine
100% Nöjesguiden Precis som sin föregångare är Run The Jewels 2 en uppvisning i bestialisk arrogans, där råbarkade industribeats matchas med textmässig lekfullhet och ren raptalang.
100% Gaffa (Sweden) De drivna, hårda, lekfulla käftsmällarna fortsätter ösa på uppföljaren Run The Jewels 2 men på en kolossalt större skala.
93% Consequence of Sound Music, the two formed a friendship that we should all thank a number of deities for, spawning what is quite possibly the strongest working relationship between a rapper and producer since Dr.
93% The A.V. Club But isn’t braggadocio the easy route with what’s been a middling year in music, and with failures like Michael Brown’s death and the NFL’s domestic violence issues still fresh on people’s minds?
90% Pop Matters If the album has any shortcomings at all, it’s that El seems to have settled into a holding pattern as a producer.
90% Music OMH The music runs straight into Blockbuster Night Part 1 (there is no Part 2 on the album), a gem, no pun intended.
90% The Line of Best Fit
90% Exclaim! Music
90% Awful Sounds He managed to fuse elements of EDM into some of these beats but mostly what stuck out was just how the instrumentals on this album screamed for attention and stood out on their own.
90% Chicken Ham Music So this year’s Run The Jewels 2 is basically the sequel to this, but not the disappointing kind of sequel, it ain’t no Ocean’s Twelve shit.
90% Bearded Gentlemen With more emotional range and better guest features, Run The Jewels 2 further develops the formula of its predecessor.
90% Pitchfork For Run the Jewels, these people are what cocaine was to Clipse, sex to Lil Wayne, clothing to Cam’ron—their domain, their muse, a seemingly endless source of inspiration for the most viciously realized rap album of 2014 and most other years.
90% New Musical Express
90% Under the Radar Magazine Hamm "I'm gonna bang this bitch the fuck out," yells Killer Mike before the opening track of Run the Jewels 2.
90% Paste Magazine Hip hop hadn’t been this fun in a long time, and RTJ made it even more fun by offering their album for free.
90% Renowned for Sound Run The Jewels highly anticipated sophomore album Run The Jewels 2 is being described as one of the best hip hop albums of 2014 and after listening to the ground breaking new record its not hard to see why.
83% Absolute Punk
82% The New Zealand Herald Secondly, thanks to a fan campaign, they'll be releasing a version of this album made entirely by cat noises, called, Meow the Jewels.
80% Irish Times Music which rejuvenated his career and took him away from his Atlanta barbershop. For their second album, it’s a case of upping the ante all round and then some.
80% Shields Gazette
80% Rolling Stone Magazine (USA)
80% The Guardian The pair, who first worked together in 2012, delivered a debut album as Run the Jewels last year, and have kept the pace up with this sequel.
80% Drowned in Sound There’s something a little strange about writing this review, to a degree, seeing as one of the primary purposes of music criticism is to allow readers to form their own opinions before buying; RTJ2, though, is available free of charge to anybody who wants it.
50% Tiny Mixtapes My longstanding fondness for these two rappers is what ultimately makes me feel so ambivalent about the music they make together.
