  1. 9.0 |   Gigwise

    A true masterpiece in almost every way imaginable
    Read Review

  2. 8.0 |   All Music

    As both a symbolic avatar for her life changes and a strong empowerment statement, I Disagree celebrates Poppy's rebirth as a pop-metal alchemist and unabashed rule-breaker

  3. 8.0 |   The Music

    By further diversifying her melodic experimentations on this release, Poppy has found a new and intriguing way to hook you into her bewildering world

  4. 8.0 |   Kerrang!

    For every comparison you can make of individual moments, there is little here that you can honestly say you’ve heard before, and little that can be judged on traditional terms. But that’s what makes her such a fascinating force. Pop is dead – long live Poppy

  5. 8.0 |   music OMH

    With I Disagree, Poppy releases her version of Lemonade; both channelling the pain of her recent controversy, sticking two fingers up to the past and translating her performance art into music

  6. 8.0 |   NME

    While all our favourite rock bands are going pop, Poppy is unapologetically embracing her desire to go heavy. It might be inspired by the bands she grew up listening to, but there’s not a moment on ‘I Disagree’ that feels like a throwback

  7. 7.0 |   The Quietus

    She roles out her bubble-gum persona, and she shoots her with metal, power electronics and rage. The result is very convincing; as much a young artist finding her voice as an AI besting the machine

  8. 7.0 |   The Line Of Best Fit

    Essentially, this is sugar-rush, hyperactive pop music for people with the attention span of a gnat

  9. 7.0 |   PopMatters

    Poppy lays bare a necessary reminder to reject conformity and encircle empowerment. Whereas I Disagree explores what is confining and liberating - the latter is the album's unequivocal focal point

  10. 7.0 |   Clash

    This album is going to seriously divide opinions across the spectrum, from the trvest of metal sugariest of pop stans. But Poppy remains a daring and divisive artist making daring and divisive art, and ‘I Disagree’ is the perfect shot of adrenaline to kick start a new decade with

  11. 7.0 |   Slant Magazine

    The album tosses the singer’s pop aesthetic into the shredder with heavy metal and industrial rock

  12. 6.5 |   Pitchfork

    The cryptic YouTuber’s new album is the first to fully embrace the upsetting qualities of her video works, folding elements of nu-metal and grindcore into her seasick melange.

  13. 6.0 |   Q

    Flits between nu-metal and saccharine pop. Print edition only

  14. 6.0 |   Sputnik Music (staff)

    I Disagree is a record you’ll want to enjoy, but not necessarily analyze. It’s perfect for a romp down the highway at 90 MPH, or engulfing your personal critics in flames

  15. 5.0 |   Exclaim

    I Disagree also functions as an unwitting satire of how far clout can get you
    Read Review

  16. 4.0 |   Loud And Quiet

    Chalk this one up as an ambitious failure
    Read Review

  17. 2.0 |   Punk News

    The best thing I can say about this record is that it’s an occasionally-proficient pop star (albeit one who isn’t to my tastes), making a poor attempt at filling a gap somewhere between Bring Me The Horizon, Billie Eilish and Babymetal
