  3. 9.0 |   Exclaim

    .Paak and Mars each contribute their own modern take on the music rather than trying to mimic greats of the past. They're expert method actors who provide less of an album and more of an experience

  5. 9.0 |   Sputnik Music (staff)

    Through rigorous dedication to authenticity, some God-given talent, and a few style points, An Evening With Silk Sonic is looking more and more like an album worthy of the rich ancestry from which this whole project drew inspiration. Maybe Motown isn’t dead after all

  6. 8.5 |   Under The Radar

    In the world of Silk Sonic, the champagne never stops flowing, the grooves go all night long, and everybody is having a great time. It doesn’t get much more complicated than that, and it doesn’t need to. Take the trip back in time and you’ll find escapist pop at its finest

  13. 6.0 |   No Ripcord

    It’s not cynical and calculated enough to be a shameless cash-grab yet it’s not self-indulgent enough to be a vanity project. Perhaps it’s just a stopgap in the catalogues of two big-selling artists; an intended homage to the music that made Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak
