Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Vinyl LP pressing. 2011 release from the ringleader of young Hip Hop collective Odd Future (AKA Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All).

Review

"The last thing you d say about the prolific young rap collective Odd Future is that they re boring. You could say a lot of things about them, but you can t say that they re just like everyone else.. You know what else? They re really good. Especially their ringleader, called Tyler The Creator. And another thing? It s awesome to see them play live." --Npr

This review is about the quality of this record, not the music. If you're looking to buy this on vinyl, you probably already like what you've heard from Tyler.

The overall packaging of this record is outstanding. The sleeve itself has more of a matte fabric feel to it instead of that a glossy photo feel that most modern records have. Instead of normal white sleeves, the records themselves are housed in sort of pouch-sleeve that has photography on it. Custom stickers are used for the grooves instead of having the record label. These records are pressed on 120 or 140 gram vinyls (I can't tell because it doesn't feel flimsy like a modern 120 gram) and contain the sound very well. The levels on this record sounded good to me as I did not notice any clipping or distortion in the music. Whoever mastered these discs knew what they were doing. Also, the LP comes with a download code for a digital version of the album, so you can't complain there. It is worth noting that XL Records created the vinyl release of this, and all other records I have purchased from them are of equal or greater quality.

Overall, I would say that this record is fantastic. The sleeve is beautiful, the insert sleeves have photography on them, the pictures in the gatefold have a cool photograph look to them, the music plays well and you can download a digital version for free. From a record collector's perspective, this whole package feels like a very well put together, and at the low price of $17 plus shipping, you can't go wrong with this release.

This album still makes me cry... by the last track you realize that you just bought an old school goth album hidden within a hiphop disc. Tyler, you sneaky bastard... thanks for existing. Hugs dude, hugs. This album is very touching, but also very egotistical... It is the soundtrack to almost every troubled teenager. It is a monster that cuddles it's way to your damned soul. Truly a SOGGY BOGGLIN. a mtha f'n goblin.........

Tyler raps about hurting women. He loves paradoxes and spends a lot of his time with the mysterious Dr. TC. For the uninitiated, Tyler is the defacto leader of OFWGKTA (Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All) and spends the majority of his time (especially nowadays) in the media's spotlight. This may be because he is only twenty years old, raps about raping and killing women and somehow, seems more charismatic than those twice his age. If anything, Tyler has finally created the album he's always wanted to hear.

Much like Eminem's public-service-announcement skits, Tyler opens with the aptly titled "Goblin," which on paper, could only be described as an extended skit that is backed by the progressive clinks of piano keys and the every-now-and then filmic-sounding strings of a digital/sampled orchestra. Put simply, it is all very cinematic-sounding. A nice start to the album. "Yonkers" features several odd samples and really, should be titled "Yonkers feat. Dr. TC" since he can be heard assisting Tyler throughout the entire track with his vocals (especially on the chorus.) This is a great example of what can be done with very little instrumentation and is probably the most popular track on the album. Frank Ocean makes an appearance on the track "She" which is heavily reminiscent of 90's R&B, though everything on the album sounds like it was infused with a dose of found-sounds. The hats and snare sound borderline tinny and stray from that surgical/clinical sound many high-production R&B tracks usually flaunt. "She" takes a nice break from the over-the-top energy of tracks like "Radicals" and "Yonkers" and sends us down to Mellow-ville for some much needed relaxation. This would be the slow dance song at an OFWGKTA concert.

"Transylvania" and "Nightmare" act like companion tracks.

GOBLIN. What can I say about this one? It's filthy. It's dirty. It's raunchy. It's hilarious! I'ts GOOD! IT'S NEW!

Tyler truly deserves his self proclaimed title of "The Creator", because he has created his OWN style of hip-hop. Alongside hip-hop super group Odd Future(which he "heads"), these "children" of hip-hop have taken the Earth by STORM! Whether you can feel them or not, they are here to stay, and they DESERVE their credit!

This album is innovative, provocative, nasty, funny, pioneering, and all in all pretty damn well done! The production is QUITE polished! The music is some GOOD STUFF! Tyler is truly a musician. His lyrical style and delivery are fresh, smart, and witty. One of the things I highly respect about Tyler is the fact that he does virtually little to NO sampling(a hip-hop staple, since its founding in '77)! He plays ALL of the music in this LP, except where noted.

I liked this album a lot. The only reason I'm not giving it 5 stars is the fact that, I feel, some songs(sort of like the 1st one) just seem to drag on and ON. Is this a "hip-hop classic"? I doubt it, but, and, we shall see. Is it worth your listen? HELL YEAH!

I was waiting for this cd to come out for a while since I saw the Yonkers video. So I popped it in and loved it. It's different from all the trash that has been coming out in rap music where all they do nowadays is brag about themselves and try to make a club hit. This will really only be appreciated by people who are not easily offended, who like to listen to lyrics, and want something different. I think the whole cd played from start to finish is a good story of someone who is struggling to find himself and understand himself. The cd plays this story as basically himself talking to a shrink and the ending seems to be a nice setup for another album that will be a new chapter in the character's self-exploration. I hope to see more albums come out from the Odd Future crew. Give it a listen if you are ready for some fresh hip hop and/or are getting sick of listening to hip hop radio stations that play all the same type of songs about the luxuries of being rich.
