8. XXL: "Kendrick Lamar’s major label debut is a future classic…"
7. FACT: "Listening to the seven minute Bildungsroman "Cartoons & Cereal" (not featured on the LP), it’s clear Lamar has a genuinely avant-garde, legend-minting classic in him. Good Kid, m.A.A.d City might be a wide-ranging, far-reaching success, but one suspects it won’t be his best record."
6. Pretty Much Amazing: "The word “classic” will undoubtedly be thrown around in reference to this album. I’d say that’s fair, but it is also premature."
5. AP: "Up-And-Coming Rapper Drops Classic Debut"
4. SPIN: "It's hard to say if good kid will become the stone-cold classic that Lamar is so clearly aiming for."
3. Kendrick Lamar, to Complex: "It's classic worthy. Once it gets a few years behind it they'll be looking back saying "Yeah, Kendrick Lamar made a classic his first album."
2. Grantland: "I can’t remember the last time I experienced a piece of art about the experience of being within and without something so desperately. Illmatic? The Third Man? The Great Gatsby?"
1. Hip Hop DX: "This isn't just a debut album. This is a shot at history."

5. ...her costar in the video, fellow New Yorker A$AP Rocky, represents Kennedy but also Barack Obama and gangster rap, incarnating both the right-wing stereotype of black power and the liberal voter’s fantasy of Obama-as-messianic-prince—a limousine liberal worthy of his vehicle.
4. According to Rocky, the video is “some swag shit . . . some 2015 shit,” suggesting its vision might be so contemporary that it could take a while to properly digest.
3. In a typical pop/hip-hop collaboration, Rocky would be allotted thirty seconds to voice his own desire and thereby reclaim the phallus.
2. I have no reason to doubt that Del Rey was born with those lips, but if it’s the case that they got extra help along the way, I’m thankful someone had the presence of mind to correct nature’s mistake.
1. Her unwinking enjoyment of her own perversity would be enough to qualify her as a great queer performance artist; her astonishing television debut on Saturday Night Live last winter, in which she covered her own hits as though she were a drag-queen impersonator, put her over the top.

3. Lisa Armstrong: “But for me—a journalist who has never seen one of Slimane's menswear shows—what was most surprising was that it was so unsurprising.
2. Suzy Menkes: “…this was supposed to be a summer collection. A tufted, zigzag-patterned fur over a red blouse gave a jolt of brightness. Then the ceiling flaps went down — and up again — to reveal colorful long dresses. But even they were not enough to give the show a triumphant ending. Perhaps Mr. Slimane can use the YSL codes next season to move forward from homage to something more dynamic.
1. Cathy Horyn: “Considering that Mr. Slimane was an avatar of youthful style, I expected more from this debut. I had the impression from the clothes of someone disconnected from fashion of the past several years.”
3. Hedi Slimane: "Miss Horyn is a schoolyard bully."

4. “Appreciate every single person. Look at them like a golden, million-dollar baby.”
3. “And real talk, like, seeing these ants and studying them and respecting them, it’s like, man, they’re in their own community too. They’re trying to survive. They love. They fight. They telling themselves something. We can’t understand, but one day we will.”
2. “Life is hard, kinda.”
