Peppa Pig’s album has been rated higher than Travis Scott’s latest record Utopia

Pitchfork’s Alphonse Pierre dubbed Utopia a ‘shiny, empty spectacle’ that fails to deliver.

Pitchfork has rated Peppa Pig's album higher than Travis Scott’s Utopia.

‘Higher Ground’...well, not according to this music publication.

The rapper released his fourth studio album last week and it features some impressive collaborations, including Playboi Carti, Future, Beyonce and SZA.

It was one of the most highly anticipated records of the year, however one review website says it doesn't live up to the hype.

While the album is receiving ‘generally favorable reviews’ from most critics, Pitchfork’s Alphonse Pierre dubbed it a ‘shiny, empty spectacle’ that fails to deliver.

“The marquee features and shiny production are good at masking the fact that Travis is an emotional blackhole on the mic,” he wrote.

Pierre added that the mogul needed to rely on ‘knockout guest appearances’ as he can’t carry an album himself, adding that his new album sounds ‘fake as hell’.

“That’s not asking him to suddenly be a lyricist, but one of the basic attributes we expect from rappers is to be real with us, or at least convince us that they’re not purely bulls****ing’,” he continued.

Pierre continued that the album should feel ‘seismic’ or at the very least ‘impactful’, but Scott instead ‘waters down the cutting-edge sounds of the past’, which flattens the Houston rapper’s southernness.

"He feels like he’s from nowhere,” he added.

The verdict? Ultimately Pierre gave Utopia a 5.7 rating out of 10.

Pretty brutal, right?

Well, just to make matters worse, Peppa’s Adventures scored higher, with a 6.5.

Offft. Sorry, Trav.

A Twitter account by the name ‘We Love Rap’ posted these ratings, which of course, sent the internet into a frenzy.

One person wrote: “Their review was actually pretty good although I do disagree with the concluding number TO BE HONEST.”

Another said: “Let’s be honest, that album was not that great. Pitchfork did not lie. Going from Astroworld to Utopia was very underwhelming.”

However, some slammed the publication as one person shared: “It’s hilarious how the Peppa album has become a litmus test on the quality of an album.”

Another said: “This was a crime against humanity.”

While a third commented: “Pitchfork writers are modern-day man-babies that think they know more about music than the people that actually practice music.”

I mean, no doubt Peppa put out a banger but I think we can all agree art is truly subjective, folks.
