OKPlayer reviewed Lasers and gave it a 82/100 rating. Check out what they had to say about the album below:
Musically and thematically, Lasers really wants to be a statement album, bursting at the seams with explosive keyboards, thrashing guitars and grand sentiments. “The Show Goes On” and “Beautiful Lasers” appear to hit the desired bull’s eye with stadium sized arrangements and anthemic choruses, augmented by subtle crevices in which Lupe can weave his intricate flow.The power of the lyrics come more from personal resonance than his trademark wordplay. “Words I Never Said” unfurls like a soundtrack to the digital apocalypse, with Lupe delivering some of his most overtly political rhymes to date, over pounding war drums and sinister keys.Fans of Fiasco’s conceptual opuses will find themselves hitting repeat on “All Black Everything,” a utopian portrait of a bizzaro world in which the slave trade never existed, and, among other plot twists, “a black woman voted head of Klu Klux Klan.” The slightly off kilter strings, atop Wizz Buchanan’s stuttered drums evoke a dreamlike serenity without being cloying.
