  1. 10.0 |   Pretty Much Amazing

    When Pusha T calls Daytona “Album of the motherfucking year” at the end of “The Story of Adidon”, it’s not an empty boast – it might very well be

  2. 9.4 |   Sputnik Music (staff)

    Daytona is the sound of Pusha-T being pushed to pursue perfection

  3. 9.1 |   A.V. Club

    By the time the album’s over, he sounds like the last rapper on earth. He’s voracious, barely stopping to breathe from the moment the record begins

  4. 9.1 |   Consequence Of Sound

    Coke rap’s poet laureate continues to amaze as he rhymes about the hustle and grind
    Read Review

  5. 9.0 |   Clash

    By staying small, focussed and concise here, he makes the biggest statement of his solo career so far - going against the excess and all-you-can-eat approach that’s trapping the rest of the game is truly a stunt. Pusha T is timeless

  6. 9.0 |   Earbuddy

    Bereft of filler and perfectly paced, it is easily Pusha-T’s best album since Hell Hath No Fury

  7. 8.5 |   The 405

    It’s evident that Pusha T is at his most confident on DAYTONA; his rhymes carry confidence and clarity paired with a high head and a release that was well worth the three-year waiting period

  8. 8.3 |   Pitchfork

    Produced entirely by Kanye West, the spare and serrated solo album from Pusha-T is a near-airtight exercise in flair and focus

  9. 8.0 |   The Guardian

    Kanye ably props up rap's best drug storyteller
    Read Review

  10. 8.0 |   Rolling Stone

    In many ways, Daytona replicates Jay-Z and No I.D.'s 2017 rap highlight 4:44: two older men who simply practice their craft, their legacies already secure

  11. 8.0 |   NOW

    Seven tracks long (like apparently all upcoming G.O.O.D. Music albums) with a sombre and workmanlike tone, the album is stripped down in the best possible sense

  12. 8.0 |   Exclaim

    All the controversy gives elements of DAYTONA some delicious extra novelty, though thankfully its core ingredients are more than fulfilling on their own

  13. 8.0 |   PopMatters

    It may not be the most woke album of the year. But nothing is going to touch the "YUGH" factor of Pusha T's DAYTONA this year

  14. 8.0 |   Mojo

    Stands loud and proud among Pusha T's best work. Print edition only

  15. 8.0 |   All Music

    It's a testament to the rapper's excellence that he can release a 20-minute album that withstands West's ostentatious art direction and shoddy guest verse

  16. 8.0 |   music OMH

    This is not the King Push we were led to expect, but it is a quality record in its own right

  17. 7.8 |   Gig Soup

    In 7 tracks on a project barely reaching 20 minutes, Pusha T makes the fans want more
    Read Review

  18. 7.5 |   Spectrum Culture

    It’s a fascinating flex, taking three years to release a project this petite, but as with the narcotics Pusha has rapped about for decades, it’s not about volume, but purity

  19. 6.0 |   The Observer

    Rarely has he sounded so urgent
