31 Minutes To Takeoff Image
Metascore

Mixed or average reviews - based on 7 Critics What's this?

  • Band members: Mike Posner
  • Summary: Known as "Baby Timberlake," this Duke University student is a pop singer who stands on his own, going from a dorm-room mixtape to potential stardom with his new album.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 2 out of 7
  2. Negative: 1 out of 7
  1. 31 Minutes' breezy B-boy anthems may keep the man of the half hour around well past Labor Day.
  2. Think Justin Timberlake's less-talented cousin, or Andy Samberg.
  3. He toggles between petulant cad ("Gone in September") and wounded child ("Save Your Goodbye"), convincing at neither. He has a grating voice, heavily nasal, with a seeming inability to wrap his lips around all of the necessary syllables, meaning that even when he's at his angriest, he sounds as if he's holding back.
