  1. 10.0 |   NME

    ‘Dear Annie’ is a stunning odyssey through hip-hop, R&B, pop and beyond, one that will lend itself to both wintry nights in and blissed-out parties this summer

  2. 8.0 |   The Irish Times

    For too long there were too few Rejjie Snow songs in the world. Now here he is on album number one, attempting the impossible task of defining love over 61 minutes and producing a piece of work as impressive as it is thrilling

  3. 8.0 |   Crack

    One of the most delicious debuts of the year so far

  4. 8.0 |   Q

    It's the album's introspective second half which delivers the punch. Print edition only

  5. 8.0 |   The Guardian

  6. 7.0 |   music OMH

    Overall Dear Annie is pleasant, with other highlights including Mon Amour, Pink Lemonade (mostly for its gorgeously woozy production) and Egyptian Luvr, but it could have benefitted from losing some filler and gaining just a little more dynamism from Rejjie himself

  8. 6.0 |   Evening Standard

    At 20 tracks, it’s a sprawling debut, though his collaboration with Norwegian singer Anna of the North shows a sure touch for potential pop hits

  9. 6.0 |   Loud And Quiet

    Rejjie is a loveable rapper with a lot of promise when we can hear his personality, but he frequently fades into the background on his own album

  10. 5.5 |   Pitchfork

    This Irish rapper's debut suggests great potential, even if he's limited for now by the obvious influence of N.E.R.D. and Tyler, the Creator
