4. Wonder, 2020
“This doesn’t seem like a mature album by a consolidated artist, it feels more like a promising debut from a new talent. That said, the album has been quite enjoyable for me, just a simple collection of songs that doesn’t pretend to be revolutionary. Decent album.”
3. Illuminate, 2016
“It is extremely rare to find a new artist like Shawn Mendes, who is poised, multi-talented, self confident yet humble, and good looking. He has produced an album that provides a great listening experience from beginning to end. Having owned radio stations, knowing that the music format, and the artists that you play within that format, makes or breaks the station, Shawn Mendes would instantly find his album at the top of our playlist.”

2. Shawn Mendes, 2018
“A huge improvement for sure. pretty much everything is better this time around, and there are way more memorable tracks than ever before. this album feels like Shawn finding his footing as an artist rather than being a cash cow for a label, which is great. it doesn’t work all the time, but when it does, it really does”
1. Handwritten, 2015
“Up until the end this album ranges from really boring to really bad, so i can’t give this album really any props. it’s exactly what you’d expect from a young guy who got a record deal off vine and was a magcon boy.
