“Usually I listen to 5/10second snippets on Amazon for songs and if they don’t catch me within that time frame I move on to check something else. I was definitely going to download Better but saw the price of the LP/EP and thought well let me check the other songs. Many Suncity is amazing and so is Motion and well worth the purchase price of the LP/EP – whatever this is. If you love Better you’ll love the other two songs harmonics and melody which is the unique sound Khalid has mastered sonically. My hats off to another masterful EP I’ll be jamming to in my ride.”

“Phenomenal album. Khalid once again perfectly encapsulates sounds and feelings of youth throughout the album. Hit singles such as Better and Talk show Khalid’s developed sound while tracks like Bluffin’ and Self adds a liberating sentimental layer to the project.”

“I am an absolute Khalid fanboy and am writing this review after having heard the album multiple times. This is easily my favorite album of all time, and I doubt much else will be able to top it. Khalid’s soft and soothing voice is the kind of thing that can calm you down from the heights of rage and bring you up from the depths of sadness. At least for me anyway. The production compliments his singing very well, and I can genuinely say I dislike no songs on this album.
