Eternal Atake is a good mix of hard bangers, auto-crooning, cloudy production, nasally and quirky vocal inflections over drowned out beats. Uzi’s voice is intriguingly used, improving his use of auto tune, and deploying skittery flows that lead to some creative rhyme schemes. The biggest thing this album has going for it are the beats, as they’re some of the most eclectic and memorable in recent memory. Despite a few flaws, Eternal Atake feels very worth the wait. – Jared (7.5/10)

Sticking out like a sore thumb has been the epitome of Lil Uzi Vert’s career, dating back to its infancy in Philadelphia. His brashness has never been as concentrated as it is now, in the form of a prolific double album that’s brought out a vibrancy we haven’t experienced fully in almost three years. Even setting aside the vignettes presented at the end of its tracks, Eternal Atake expresses the alien that Uzi sees himself as, both personally and musically. With this release, Uzi has cemented himself with the likes of Young Thug and Future as those at the cutting edge of trap music. As simple as it is, your differences define who you are. Lil Uzi Vert, a man who’s been learning for so long, has finally mastered how to adapt without compromising who he is. – Ben (Synth) (7.5/10)

If you feel like you’ve been hearing about this album for two years, it’s because you have. After many delays, leaks, and changes, the final product more or less delivers on its promise. Lil Uzi Vert cruises through this album with high-powered performances, emptying out his bag of tricks over eclectic production choices. It was worth the wait and met expectations, but didn’t quite exceed any of them. – Enth (7/10)
