Selena Gomez’s third album is a smooth and confident pop record that delves deep—but not that deep—into heartbreak, resilience, and self-love. –Quinn Moreland (Pitchfork)

A varsity-squad production team, including various Max Martin-affiliated Swedes and the ace songwriting duo of Justin Tranter and Julia Michaels, bring their considerable contributions — though their job, of course, is to make Gomez sound like nothing less than her own woman: a girl interrupted but now returned, in Rare form. –Leah Greenblatt (Entertainment Weekly)

Rare is made up of near pop perfection: catchy songs with fun hooks and dance-y tracks, all with emotionally charged, relatable lyrics that keep her dedicated fanbase coming back. –Nina Braca (Consequence of Sound)

There is a lot to like about Rare. But it never quite gets out from beneath the shadow of half a decade of behemothic bangers. –Alexandra Pollard (The Independent)

The pop star returns with a very listenable, if occasionally drab, dance-pop album –Ellen Johnson (Paste)
