Everybody Looking
Everybody Looking
received generally positive reviews from critics. At Metacritic, which assigns a normalized rating out of 100 to reviews from mainstream publications, the album received an average score of 72, based on 13 reviews.[16] Neil Z. Yeung of AllMusic gave a positive review, stating " Everybody Looking
Everybody Looking
is one of the best examples of Gucci Mane's contributions to rap in his highly prolific catalog."[17] Narsimha Chintaluri of HipHopDX
HipHopDX
said, "Mike WiLL Made-It and Zaytoven construct a cinematic backdrop, but Gucci's execution is a bit wanting. Regardless, it's a clear step in the right direction, a completely different beast than the b-side littered mixtapes he's sanctioned from behind bars over the past three years, and begs for repeat listens."[20] Christina Lee of Rolling Stone
Rolling Stone
said, "Everybody Looking, Gucci's ninth album and first after a two-year stay in federal prison, is a compelling left turn, the sound of a veteran innovator reclaiming his territory not with larger-than-life charisma and off-the-wall imagery but fresh intimidation tactics."[24] Julian Benbow of The Boston Globe
The Boston Globe
wrote: "There's less party and more perspective. He sees the troubles he went through before prison for what they are."[27] David Drake of Pitchfork stated, "It will please fans looking for Another Gucci Mane
Gucci Mane
mixtape. Everyone else will likely find it a bit spotty. Certain songs fall into familiar—now six- or seven-year-old—formulas. His vocals, no doubt out of practice, sound a bit rusty. But most of all, it just feels unfinished, rushed."[22] In a mixed review, The Guardian's Lanre Bakare stated: "As usual, he's at his best when things get a little weird."[19] Michael G. Barilleaux of RapReviews.com said, "While the beats are relatively mediocre and not at all unusual for this brand of hip hop, they do a decent job matching the dark picture Gucci paints. Unfortunately, that picture is more of a rough sketch as Gucci steers more toward unrefined flows and bland, mechanically arching vocals rather than a more thought out approach."[23] In another mixed review, Damien Morris of The Observer said, "The eerie emotional electricity and forensic detail of the single "1st Day Out tha Feds" dissipates across 14 songs that desperately lack variety and humour, and choruses that aren't just Gucci grimly repeating the song's title."[21] Commercial performance[edit] Everybody Looking
