Ultimately, Odd Future fans can rest assured that Goblin upholds the crew's extremely divisive status: listeners are either going to love it or hate it.

Editor's Note: The original posted rating on this album was a site error. Tyler, the Creator's Goblin was rated as a 4 out of 5. Apologies for the error.

Hype is a tricky variable for burgeoning Hip Hop artists. While many outright flounder at game time due to misguided content or shiesty label execs, others are simply crushed by the overwhelming musical feats expected of them by rabid fans. In a very real sense, Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All’s frontman Tyler, the Creator finds himself at the crux of this dilemma with his studio debut Goblin.

It’s difficult to separate Goblin’s potential from the success of its 2009 predecessor Bastard; with Hip Hop consumers so distressed over the new vanguard of artists “misrepresenting” the genre, critics are inevitably going to draw lines in the sand over Odd Future’s legitimacy. Unfortunately for detractors, however, Goblin won’t give them the satisfaction of seeing OFWGKTA fail. While Goblin doesn’t live up to the fever-pitch hysteria that the group generated over the past year, Tyler’s ferocious rhymes and richly layered production make the album as exciting a listen as it is polarizing.

Goblin picks up where Bastard left off, as Tyler continues to duke it out with his therapist. Yet while Bastard maintained a certain sonic reserve that kept it grounded, Goblin spirals out of control into rebellious perversity. While Tyler, the Creator’s never been known to shy away from lyrical excess, Goblin revels in its absurd extremes and strives to put its listeners in a state of calculated discomfort. Tracks like “Radicals,” “Tron Cat” and “Sandwitches” lash out with anarchic discordance that put the listener on edge. Even the more subdued songs like “She” with Frank Ocean and the brilliant “Yonkers” embody Tyler’s middle-fingers-up attitude, as he twists perverted tales of stalking girls and “stabbing Bruno Mars in his goddamn esophagus” into anathematic odes to unbridled individualism. OFWGKTA’s fuck-all attitude may disassociate some listeners looking for friendly fare, but for those hell-bent on deconstruction and sonic disorder, Goblin will come as a sigh of relief.

While Goblin’s chaotic moments make it an exceedingly fun thrill ride, it’s the album’s more introspective moments that expose Tyler’s true gift as an emcee. The songs “Goblin,” “Nightmare” and quintessential album capstone “Golden” perfectly capture Tyler’s manic tendencies, as his innermost thoughts and emotions spill out with unimpeachable conviction. In addition, “Her” is a brutally honest confession from a hopeless romantic. While the track may be a bit too emotional for listeners wanting to hear Tyler scream, “Kill people, burn shit, fuck school,” it’s a breath of fresh air on an album populated with rape, murder and cartoonish degeneration.

Tyler also reaffirms his uncanny prowess as a producer, crafting jarring off-kilter cuts that blend the hardnosed aesthetics of Lex Luger with the venomously carefree antics of punk rock. “Tron Cat” is a panicked exercise in expertly assembled discordance, complete with growling bass, screeching 16-bit synths and repeated snare hits that kick the song’s energy into overdrive. Once again, however, Tyler’s subtler moments are what make the album really shine. The lead single “Yonkers,” in addition to cuts like “Nightmare,” “Golden” and the space age instrumental joint “Au79,” find Tyler stripping his production to its bare elements, with the former track employing a simple grating noise juxtaposed with melodic piano key shifts that the song a sense of musical gravitas yet to be achieved by many established Hip Hop producers.

Goblin is hardly a masterpiece, however. The project suffers from a few dull moments the reveal that Tyler and company still have room to grow. Despite their fun rambunctious qualities, “Transylvania” and “Bitch Suck Dick” do little to add to the album’s frantic tone, while “Fish” plods along rehashing the same crazed-rapist persona that Tyler exhausted on the earlier half of the LP. Perhaps the strangest shortcoming on the album is “Analog,” which sticks out like a sore thumb with its pop-oriented production and hokey song content.

Ultimately, Odd Future fans can rest assured that Goblin upholds the crew’s extremely divisive status: listeners are either going to love it or hate it. But at the end of the day, there’s little use in complaining about how the project isn’t quite as exhilarating as its previous companion piece. Tyler, the Creator still achieves an engrossing dystopian vision of Hip Hop that refuses to compromise to what fans and industry critics demand of him.

    I really am feelin Odd Future, especially Tyler, The Creator. I think people give him WAAAAY too little credit (although some of his guests should actually put a least a little drop of sweat into their "lyrics"). Still I really love the theme of "Goblin" because in a way, I can relate (not the rape and murder or none of that). I mean in that Tyler gets frustrated and angry at himself and the whole world and really needs someone to talk to, and in the end, he really helps himself. I know I probably sound mad corny right now, but I really love this record. His lyrics are funny and on point, the storyline is funny (especially when he kills his friends), and the ending is superb. Tyler really deserves a lot of credit for his hard work.

    rap is about lyrical content, I wanted to like this as a fan of horrorcore but tyler just doesn't always get the job done for me on this one, some alright tracks, his fan boys are a bit too hardcore too, make me not like him at all

    Not hip hop here's why, a rubric for a no samples used album: Melodies and chord proggession: 5/5 Ability to create Atmospheric synths: 4/5 Additional instruments appeal to underlying framework: 0/5 Climatic hooks: 0/5 Bass: 3/5 Drum framework: 2/5 (rarely uses drums and you call this hip hop!) Drum sounds: 2/5 Use of percussion sounds in a complimentary way(to create a smooth/funky/krunk rhythm) fashion: 1/5 P.S. This falls under the genre garbage. From someone who listens to more than just hip hop.

    The beats are garbage apart from Yonkers - how can anyone call this pioneering or groundbreaking or even creative? Esham was doing this kinda shit when Tyler was still in his daddy's ball sack. The production is boring - none of the beats are melodic or truly banging. I don't find him inspiring or charismatic - some of his raps are technically on point but really nothing special. As people have said there are MUCH better new emcees out there (Fashawn, J. Cole, Big K.R.I.T, Gibbs etc)

      i'd argue that it's regressing, rather than maturing. this is some juvenile, ignorant ass shit. new school artists- Skyzoo, Big Krit, Wale, Cyhi Da Prynce.... all of these artists pay homage to the old school while doing something definitively new and refreshing in hip hop. Without being terribly ignorant to hip hop and it's roots/culture.

    • gamma11

      it isnt so much as maturing as regressing into a childhood/highschool like state that is irreversable because the music industry is ruled by those tho music matters most to... highschoolers and college students... those of us outside that realm have other things... ya know like bills, children, spouses and work... least pac and them knew what work was... this fucking NIGGER probably has never done a day of work in his life... prolly just sitting around waiting for someone to hand him a meal ticket...

  • alfytitos

    I really liked most of this album. Allthough some songs were just stupid his main line of songs were really good and creative. Tyler has good word play and his psycho flow is something differnet and in a few songs he sounds alot like old em. This album was simply put a breath of fresh air from hip hop nowadays. I would personally rate it a 3.5 because alot of songs were just weak but it deserves a 4 for its genre

  • BIG FACE ITALY

    Fresh crazy creative concept album LOL 5/5.

  • Rory Patterson

    Is it just me, or does Tyler say the same nasty things over and over again just with different words? Cool video though...

  • Mu

    These dudes are talented as hell. A lot of yall will miss out on Tyler and OF by focusing on their crazy lyrics and songs and not focusing enough on the wordplay and rhyme schemes. A lot of yall made the same mistake with Eminem... don't make the same mistake twice.

    • Mu

      Here we go again... Everytime another rapper is simply mentioned in a comment, niggas start thinking comparisons have to be made. My point wasn't to say that Tyler is as good as Em, but that people often focus too much on content and not enough on actual talent. Tyler can straight out RAP better than most of these BS up-and-coming rappers.

      "And there's a million of us just like me who cuss like me; who just don't give a fuck like me who dress like me; walk, talk and act like me and just might be the next best thing but not quite me!" He's not in Em's category. Even If I find him talented.

  • jaketheshape

    besides his production skills, tyler is just doing detroit acid rap/wicked shit/horrorcore. KING GORDY would lyrically murder him on the mic, while offending people worse. dont belive me listen to Gordy or follow him on twitter and look at the shit he says compared to tyler. @KingGordy. tyler is just re-packaging esham and King Gordy for a younger generation. without production skills, hes just another shock rapper doin whats already been done better. he cant even get on esham's level production wise. he says hes not horrorcore, but really he's making safer, more marketable horrorcore.

    The people who say the album sucks probably didn't even listen to the whole album. In all honesty people say they don't like something because they don't understand it. "Listen deeper than the music before you put it in a box"

  • Adrian Bravo

    This album speaks talent. You either like it or not but either way it made you all say something on here. It made you comment made you listen to the music. If your speak the truth and say this is "wack" or "garbage" then theres a much simple solution for yoou which is to not comment at all or not listen either...seriously hating on a person's art makes you sound like that jealous fat kid in class who always bitched because he wasnt as smart as his class partner. At 19 he has done what a lot of you have dreamed of. This album is a story which a lot of you are to unaware to realize a following to BASTARD he tells stories and if your'e simple as close minded as to stick to demented hip hop faggetry hen by all mean go for it. However this album is quality in a whole new genre which is authenticity and storytelling. Please get out if you are just about to write a hate comment as well because honestly deep down you also know how much ignorance there is in that all well. Album was great. And equally excited for "Wolf".

    I once thought that Tyler The Creator was cool and that I could relate to him, but recently has become very stuck up and snobby on Twitter. He was never known to be one with class, but there's no reason to be such an asshole. I just think he should be more grateful, y'know?

    i have a $5000 audio system in my car, and enjoy playing my music at high volumes. this album does not sound good at high volumes and therefore it is not good to me.

    • Alex Hayford

      Let me guess, bass distortion? Looks like you spent $5000 for nothing. Tyler's production just exposed your subs. lol, just playing. In all seriousness though, the bass is ridiculous on this album, bordering on unnecessary. The other OF releases are even worse cause they weren't mastering the tracks in a proper studio environment. Those are pretty much unlistenable in my car unless I turn down the bass. Goblin has definitely been mastered better, but the bass is still a problem on a couple of tracks. It sounds way better on my home stereo though. :/

      you kind of got a point;i like tyler but to me the problem with tyler is that he's a "repetitive" rapper. mainly devil worship but i don't believe in god or any religion so my point is what if there was absolute proof that there was no god... then what would tyler rap about. just sayin

  • louie

    If eveverybody hates this shit so much why is this so discussed? this clearly has more comments than any other album. I mean when i see a soulja boy or gucci mane song or album posted i dont click on it because i dont like it. all u dudes that hate this odd future shit probably pay more attention to them than people who actually like them. which defeats your whole purpose of not wanting to listen to their music because u hate it.

  • cara

    i don't see what the big hype was. i loved odd future all day before goblin, but goblin was not a good album.

    ATTENTION: TYLER THE CREATOR IS REALLY A RICH BOY FROM ONE OF THE RICHEST FAMILIES IN AMERICA. ONE OF THE RARE FEW BLACK FAMILIES THAT OWNED A PLANTATION DATING BACK TO THE EARLY 1700s WITH TIES TO THE LEGENDARY ILLUMINATI. YOU ARE ALL BEING SUBLIMINALLY BRAINWASHED AND CONTROLLED FOR A GREATER CAUSE. HIS SECRET INFLUENCES ON SOCIETY ARE NO DIFFERENT THAN LADY GAGA OR JUSTIN BIEBER. I WONT GO IN DETAIL, BUT IF YOU USE YOUR MIND AND LOOK FOR DETAILS THEN YOU WILL SEE. PLEASE DO NOT BE MANIPULATED BY THE HIGHER POWER. NOTE: THIS WILL PROBABLY BE ELIMINATED FROM THE FACE OF THE INTERNET, BUT HOPEFULLY ENOUGH OF YOU READ THIS IN TIME TO SPREAD THE WORD. FAREWELL.

    tyler needs a father figure. burb nigga to the core. and he still fatherless. damn! cryin bout i need my dad, i love her she doesnt love me, ima jerk off and rape her bullshit over wack beats. beats is noise. kid cant rap. he aint catching bodies. nigga soft on the track. hes so funny and outrageous tho. i wanna give him 5 mics for being a wild surburban skater boy tho. but the music fuckin sucks so he get 1.5 mics. 1 for effort half for pity.

    To make history, you gotta do some shit that people will love and hate equally... 50/50... These niggas did that shit.

    • titooo

      Bekalu_w, you probrably right. But when you make a really great album or really great music most of the people would agree that ur shit is dope. In example, lot of us think Kanye West is stupid, but most of us also know that he's a great artist. Odd Future people might have some talent but till now they are really overrated

      so if i give my wife half my shit im making history? i dont make that kinda history SUCKA! you make history when the music is undeniably good. this shit is trash water. next time i fart in church, and its half and half, ima tell em im making history.

  • Tyler sucks dick

    This album is absolutely garbage. This shit is hip-hops version of Screamo rock. Tyler has good lyrics at times but How can anyone bump this? Id bump it if I was on my way to some sort of satanic ritual or about to drink some blood for breakfast to get me in the mood, but come on. This isnt music at all. This is annoying noise with some constipated, angry, ignorant nigga rapping over it. And all yall that love this and say "aw fuck that bubblegum shit like BoB and Bruno Mars and Lil Wayne." GTFO. Those guys are 100X more talented than this ignorant fuck. Bruno Mars can sing like crazy. Im sorry if you just dont appreciate good music. And BoB was everybody's favorite rapper less than a year ago. Then he blew up and now hes got haters. Lil Wayne, nothin needs to be said. Hes not the best out there but hes better than this shit. Go away, Tyler the Creator of awful "music".

    • Adrian Bravo

    • chris

      @anonymous B.O.B. made millions of dollars too? so why do you give a fuck that he made a pop album, homie got his money and still put out No Genre, one of the best pure hip hop mixtapes to be released last year. This album was very mediocre. so fuck outta here. comparisons can be made, just by the pure fact that they are simply better technical rappers than Tyler. He's only alright at rapping.

    • hip hop anonymous

      Used to be a fan of wayne's but lost me after carter 3 which had a weaker album review rating than tyler's goblin...his first album. not even a fan of tyler's. and you can't really compare those other artists to tyler for the fact that they make different kinds of music, both are easily digestible to the public.

    • Anonymous

      preach brotha the album fuckin sucks! and you cant compare this garbage to what eminem was doing when he first came out. eminem was killing freestyles, and was the deadliest new lyricist out. this nigga doesnt spit like early em, his flow is garbage and his lyrics aint as twisted. this fool sucks. eminem was dope. THATS the difference. fuckin odd future stans. odd future = rich black kids from the burbs. not hip hop!

    • Quincy Steel

      look man what you are saying is nothing, but hater propoganda shit. tyler is very far from scream rap or horror core. yes a lot of his songs have crazy and out there antics, but the kid has lyrical capabilities that is unmatched by up and comers you have to listen to the music instead of believe everything you hear. crazy talent ragardless of what you may think it does take a lot of talent to do what he is doing. it is almost the same thing as what Eminem did when he first came out. he took all his thoughts and laid them out. the only difference is Em is white and tyler is black. that means nothing though he is who he is, and if you think that Lil wayne and B.o.B are more talented then you are sippin on waynes leftover syrup because Wayne is not hot Corey Gunz shitted on that nigga on his own song and B.o.B was everyones favorite rapper a year ago until they heard his mixtapes from the previous couple of years and realized homie dumbed himself down to appeal to an audience of preteens and women the advertures of bobby ray was no where near as goos as may 25th, B.O.B vs bobby ray and who the fuck is B.o.B the homie sold the fuck out completely threw him lyrical prowess in the shitter and came out with a pop album and if you think that a rapper coming out with a pop album is good music then you should not be listening to music my friend, but then agains everyone is entitled to their own opinion.

  • ssssssssssss

    its usually white kids who are impressed by weirdness..dont think so? check out the majority of comments with facebook pictures.its always some kids from the suburbs.mmmm a few albums albums later the gimmick will fade away.lets say onksktfhg,what ever its called,is able to keep the hype alive for a next album....what then?more weirdness?im sure you kids are impressed if tyler ate bowls of hot dog shit but once his whole career is based on eating said shit,he becomes a everyday shit eater not an eccentric artist.the weirdness will get old quick.EX:eminem cant rap about killing family members cuz the shit got old.when this rap group finds out that the masses will want more tht the average weirdness then the other free loaders in the group who get paid in peanuts will have to find a fuckin job.fuck circus rap

      well my friend if you are a true person of hip hop you would know that most of wutangs hardcore members are white surburban kids. they have the money to go to the concerts and by the shirts for 40 bucks and but the album and the itunes exclusives. not niggas in the hood. true they may not be able to keep this up, but if you go to any mixtape website and type in OFWGKTA! you will find plenty of music from alteast 3 years ago i dont think that fade is going anywhere it just took some time to hit the masses. Artists evolve the homie is 20 and a weird 20 yr old, but that does not mean he is going to be rapping about the same shit 10 yrs from now. i mean look at snoop that nigga is a fossil and he is still rapping about the same shit he did in 95 and no one is complaining. its about appealing to your fanbase not the random ass hater bloggers of the world cuz if you do then no one will ever be pleased.

  • Raul Moreno

    I digged the album. Its creative and most of the album was really good. Songs like She, Her, Golden, Goblin and of course the two singles were my favorite along with some others. Some songs were just idk, i couldnt listen to them more then once. But overall good album from Tyler!

  • Anonymous

    I hate seeing all of these retarded comments. The lowest rating this album deserves is a 3 1/2 and the highest is a 4. Two tracks from the album should have been bonus tracks and replaced with the actual bonus tracks. Burger and Steak Sauce should have been on the album while Bitch Suck Dick and the second half of Fish. The main thing the album had going for it was cohesiveness of the story line, being his realization of fame and then slow breakdown. And I could have actually done with Burger alone being on the album rather than the other 3. All the existentialist songs were perfect and the strength of the album along with Yonkers and Sandwiches. The songs I would have removed would have gotten ride of the extra violence and rape (good songs, but not for the album). Also Tyler's style of beats is minimalist, they're not suppose to blow you away. I really don't know what beats in general you are all comparing them to since his beats are actually all sick... And stop comparing him to Eminem. It's silly. The only similarity is that they both did something that the rap game was accustomed too. And Tyler is not trying to be funny. He literally said it in song one. He also gave his very clear opinion of rape and violence in song one. I don't know why some of you are hung over on that.

  • @Deknowz

    I like their diversity but I enjoyed the OF mixtape alot more. The beats weren't shined up so the sound matched the lyrics, raw and gritty. Odd future has a bright future.

      KidSkrilla... you, my friend, are ignorant. Why is faggot an insult you want to use? grow up please. As for your comments about the album, I understand why you like it so much, and I understand why a lot of people do. it's different, and it's definitely got a lot of swag. but what every Odd Future stan fails to realize is that not everybody is impressed with "swag" and more often than not, people don't feel like listening to songs about raping bitches and whatnot. I enjoy the cd, however, it's not worthy of a 4. maybe a 3 at the highest. Complete underutilization of talent. And i checked out your music. I fart and it sounds better bro, step yo game up.

    You know what the difference between Tyler, The Creator and Bizarre of D-12 is? One is funny, tongue-in-cheek and while he makes subpar albums, at least is somewhat entertaining. The other is just named Tyler, The Creator.

  • chris

    I was extremely pumped for this cd to come out, based on Yonkers. I thought it was visceral, violent, angry, and above all, a great hip hop song. The production was intense, Tyler's flow and lyrics were great... it was just a great song overall. I enjoyed this album, so a 2/5 may seem like it's as though i disliked the album, but that's not true. It was an entertaining listen. But the album just wasn't that great. It becomes monotonous in large doses, and he's just not that funny with what he says. i see why people want to compare him to early Eminem, but Eminem was spitting with a purpose to his rhymes. When he said "Hi kids, do you like violence? want to see me stick 9 inch nails through each one of my eyelids?" it was not only hilarious, but it also pointed out that there is a problem with parenting. People are so quick to judge artists, but if the parents were better parents, kids wouldn't look up to these artists and try to be like them, but would just listen to enjoy the music. It was basically a fuck you to society, saying if they're not going to be parents, he'll be the role model. What's Tyler saying, other than I want to rape the bitch? nothing. enjoyable, entertaining listen, but ultimately, it's not that great of a cd. He could be great, just under utilizing his talents. 2/5

    Those ppl who haven't listened to the whole Album, and especially the bonus tracks, aren't in a position to give a full objective opinion on it.

"You can't be great when you settle for a flea bargain, unless you're a thrift Hipster bitch in a leotard" "This just in, Tyler, the Creator and Justin Bieber was just in the room flipping Selena Gomez, go Head give some pucker up, Ill fuck her up till the Kids come in"

    4 is too high for this. I mean thats almost putting it near a classics rating. Tyler is a decent producer and his lyric,s are average, but the album lacked subject matter and it's theme is repetitious. I understand the I don't give a fuck attitude an all that I'm young myself. Dude is a rookie and a 4 is a bit too high.I understand his skills will grow but I can name far better rookie albums from cats around his age for better rookie albums from cats around his age such as Illmatic, 2Pacalypse Now etc. I listen to odd future but a 4 come on.

  • Anonymous

    I like Bastard (it being one of my favourite albums released in the past 2 years), BlackenedWhite, and The Journey to the 5th Echelon (yes, I know the later 2 aren't Tyler's records) but listening to Goblin everything seems tired and it's a mission to listen to the whole 73 minutes plus bonus tracks. After 30 minutes and hearing 7 songs with beats that try nothing new on the album or what he's previously done on Bastard, you just want to turn it off for being boring. Hope we don't have to wait too long for the next artist who's going to have some decent creativity and focus to make it big

      I agree with the production thing If your comparing him to mainstream producers like Stargate and Bangladesh. If you talking about Pete, Premo, Madlib etc then your not sound or aware of what Hip Hop truly is, which is cool because Odd Future is at the end of the day Alternative rap group. For anyone that wants to know the origin of their style(Its not even remotely like eminems) do a youtube search on a uk mc called Terminator. From the beats to voice alot of Ofwgkta stuff is sounding jacked.

    3/5 After the first 5 tracks, the beats and lyrics start to sound the same. Can't really bump it in the ride and it won't get much radio spin. Plus, I just don't want to hear this murder murder murder, kill kill kill, rape a broad music.

    The only difference between him and Eminem (early) is that Tyler is black and ppl dont expect a black guy to rap like that...

    I've been quite the fanboy up and until now, but this album is just too much. It should be stripped of the repetitive tracks, instrumentals and some of the concept conversations should be removed. Bastard was fucking awesome, mostly because he didn't make the same song twice, which he tends to do here, like fish, transylvania and tron cat who are too similar.

    I agree that you're either gonna love it or hate it....It's not for everyone. On the other hand, Tyler and OF are bringing back that hardcore sound that groups like Wu-Tang brought in the early 90s. It's about time too...the soft R&Bish and millionaire rap songs have saturated the game for a minute already. I know there are some underground rappers that have been doing their thing for a while; they just haven't turned too many heads like OF has cause they sound like other underground acts. What I respect the most about these guys is that they are doing their own thing and sticking with it. It's dope, original, and creative. Goblin is a good album too. There are a couple of tracks that are mediocre, but they're still worth a listen. I'm happy with my purchase and I'm in my late 20s. You don't have to be as young as these cats to appreciate what they're doing. OFWGKTA!

    Tyler is not a role model. Not some sellout rapper wearing and rapping about prada and Bapes and stupid fucking jewlery, Tyler Is actually a musician, and can actually make fun of himself alot of rappers can't do that. Tyler admits in Basterd "I'm tall dark, skinny, my ears are big as fuck, drunk whie girls the only way I'll get my dick sucked." Every song I seem to hear by alot of popular rappers is about how they have so much money and their stupid rims on their car and the next one is how hard their life is in the ghetto when they don't even live there anymore. stop bitching about how he's not better then some other artist and judge GOBLIN on its own merits. besides I don't think Kanye or Lil Wayne or Eminem would have the balls or imagination to rap about half the shit Tyler raps.

      Eminem already has..D12 already has.. this whole tyler the creator thing has been done before. Fuck, even tech n9ne and brotha lynch hung go to extremities like this. Tyler really isnt that good. he makes a bunch of punchlines that dont make sense and overall its just whack sounding. They on they grind tho but i dont gotta listen to 'em. Btw listen to the words of Yonkers...bullshit lyrics and bullshit punchlines...

    I think OF is quite intriguing. It's really not my cup of tea but the nigga is creative. Young black man shocking the fuck out of America with his anarchist rebellious attitude and theatrics. I just saw the Yonkers video for the first time minutes ago and I was disturbed yet strangely drawn towards the dark outlandish shit he presents. Reminds me of a horror flick, hard to watch but I can't turn away.

    The dude is doing him, leave him be. Everyone knows how he raps and says the same shit about every song he makes. Shit ain't gonna change haters. The man below me saying you don't have to listen to the same artist with the same point of view was on point. Why can't someone make music purely for enjoyment? Why does everything have to have a deeper meaning and teach someone something? I'm not even THAT big of a fan of Tyler or OF but I respect what he's doing and encourage it. P.S. Tyler is nothing like Eminem, even when Em was on drugs and said crazy shit. Eminem was more "well-rounded" and switched topics. Tyler is more demonic and if you don't like it, go listen to lupe or eminem or Wu or whoever the fuck you like and quit hating cause you don't make a difference. I'd give this album a 4 for quality just FYI

    Anyone who likes this album either has a lower than average intelligence quotient or is simply just easily entertained. There is nothing new or exciting about this album. Yonkers is the only song with a beat worth listening to, and the rest of it sounds like a series of cheap synths layers over each other. This guy thinks he's a black Eminem. Well, guess what? There's only one Eminem, fag. You're a fail and a lame. The people who buy this album are nothing but followers. Oh look!! Goblin is a trending topic! I better save my lunch money. This album is the most uninspired piece of overhyped garbage since Roll Up. I feel sorry for your CD collection and life. Sad life.

    Hip-hop fans are some of the most closed minded people on the planet. No matter what subgenre of hip-hop they listen to, it seems that they all believe that everyone else should listen to what they like and everything else is garbage. I know it's hard to believe but you can like multiple artists. Not everything has to be intelligent. It doesn't always have to be violent. There doesn't always have to be a story and not everything has a deeper meaning. With that said, I dig OF. I also like Lupe, Nas, Atmosphere, Waka Flocka, P.O.S., TI, Tribe, etc. You know why? Because not every emotion in my life is fulfilled with one artists. If I listen to the same shit all the time, I become close minded. Point is, it's ok to like different artists and not have to compare them to one another. So stop judging everything that is different or what you don't understand because all that hate is just making you a bitter ol' fuck behind a keyboard.

      I'm glad you said that. Not many people are too open about new artists, especially if they didn't give them a listen. I comment on a lot of different artists' reviews, songs, singles and what not, not because I like the artist but to give everything a listen before I knock it. I still can't get into Tyler and OF because of the fact they are so rebellious (against everything, particularly religion), but at the same time I can respect the diversity they're bringing to rap (which is sadly going pop). I hope more artists continue to bring different styles to the table...keep hip hop alive

Regardless if you're not a role model; don't try to be by saying stupid ignorant shit like that. Tyler is a faggot and his music is not only demonic, but garbage minus the 666 and all.

    "Shock for shocks sake" You hit it right on the head with that one. I can tell that he has some skills but it seems that theyre too caught up on trying too hard to be different and trying to be different is not the same as being different. Ive listened and some of the beats are dope and I actually think the song tron cat sounds pretty dope but the content or lack of is blatantly obvious. Its a bunch of random lines thrown together that are just either twisted or disgusting and just seem a little too obvious that theyre meant to try and shock people.

    eminem even used shock value to get noticed when he cam out with songs like "kim".. the sound of the the album is something i liked a lot because its different, it doesnt need the shock value but it will help it generate the attention it deserves.

    • Malik

      Except Em was 29 years old and dealing with a woman he has a child with that has had constant interactions with the police just because of that relationship. Tyler talks about raping girls because someone he asked out to prom said no.

  • Psyntax

    I haven't listened to the album and I wasn't planning to but judging by the comments I think the same way I liked Kool Keith on Dr. Octagon, is what these listeners are going through.(I seriously doubt that the production is as good, it was one of the best produced albums of the 90's) but Keith wasn't really saying anything other than talking about crazy shit (not as violent though). While this may be disturbing to the older generation, this type of music seems to aim for the same thing Kool Keith did: talking about stuff that nobody else does. I don't' like it when people talk about rape. I'm sure he would feel different if it happened to his mom or sister, but I can't really be that mad at him for doing something along those lines.

  • will

    I heard the albume and I have to say, it is not meant for everyone. This is a subgenre specific piece of work. The production is a mix of Def Jux and Punk. The lyrics are an extension of Em dynasty: shock for shocks sake. There isnt much of a takeaway point to any of his lyrics, that is if youre a sane adult. Now, for all the these teen weirdos running around, and insane nutjobs who can hold a real job, it is a masterpiece.

  • Anonymous

    The reason he made this was because HE wanted to, Obviously there's going to be immortal technique comparisons but HES DIFFERENT. That's something people need to realize. You can say "Oh technique would destroy this kid" but seriously it doesn't matter at the end of the day because they're both doing their own thing. Second if you don't like Tyler listen to someone else trolling on someone isn't going to score you points. Third the album is great TO THE FANS, obviously if your not a fan your not going to enjoy it. Last who the fuck cares if he doesn't believe in God? like seriously, it isn't even that serious.

  • Murdock

    I'm not the biggest OF fan, but I do like a lot of their joints. Especially Earl, that dude has bars for days. But this album was pretty weak and watered down in beat selection in my opinion. I just couldn't get into it. After a while, the lack of subject matter and content is pretty apparent. Hopefully Tyler comes back stronger with his next release.

    • Brian Andrew Smith

      Honestly, I want to like immortal technique, but everyone of his albums that i have listened to, multiple times but not in recent history, have been overall duds. He might be a good lyricist and have a really progressive and in my opinion he has a good political outlook and attempts to convey the issues that he feels strongly about, and is without a doubt extremely DIY and holds to that core belief, but he doesn't branch out. He has the same shtick on every record. Now this is not a defense of tyler or OF in anyway, but a critique of Immortal Technique. He has a lot of the same ideas and agendas as many other politically motivated emcees, yet he is unable to convey that to the greater public. There is nothing wrong with creating mainstream(ish) songs if the content is able to hold up to the ideals. Look at PE, Kweli, Common, Mos Def, Dead Prez, Lupe, and many more. Though I may not be the biggest fan of all of those that I said, they have been able to express strong political views through their music and exceed at bringing their messages to the greater public. Furthermore, one of Immortal Techniques most powerful and controversial songs included Mos Def (and Eminem)and that may be one of his most mainstream songs to date. You can save and believe whatever you want but if no ones listening, its nothing more than the fallen tree in the woods.

    • OForlife

      The most important thing that anyone has said is that Tyler makes his shit for himself. doing that he somehow ended up with a record deal and generating hate from idiots like you two. he is who he is for no reason other than to please himself. ask him if he thinks hes a good rapper, hell say no. but his talent and level of genius is unquestionable and unmatched. if you dont like his songs, you like his beats, if you dont like the beats, you like his videos, if you dont like the vids, than you like his "dont give a fuck attitude, and if you dont like any of those... than youre fucked up

    • Gary Rue

      YES Ryan is the winner on this site for the correct response to this sub par turd. I made better songs in 1994 when I was 17 and now I am an old bitter asshole and still make better music by far. But seriously he will be punched sooner than you think !!!!

    "Mediocre at best. This kid is messed up, his lyrics are for shock value only, no substance.And don't start me on his delivery.Wak as fuk.2/5" i agree, his lyrical content is strictly to shock, he even states this is various interviews.. no substance, his content is just as bad as those who rap about benz beamers and bentleys and dont even got 'em, make believe shit. the beats are original i suppose but its like trying to fuse dubstep with hiphop with almost horrorcore style put to it. i do not enjoy this, his shocking content does not shock me, rather annoys me. and to those that say someone who hates this probably like drake an wayne.. i fucking hate both of them, i stick to the real shit, the classic shit, and to me tyler the creator is not putting out some classic shit, just an effort to be as strange an different as possible, sometimes that is not the best approach.

    • fuck

      I didnt say that he actually does that shit i said that those are his most raw emotions.. it doesnt mean he acts on them he just expresses them in his music fucking around. yeah it has shock value too but it isnt complete bullshit

    • say what??!!

      actual views and emotions??? i call shenanigans .... he really wants to rape , kill, murder, whatever all the bullshit he is saying.. yeah right. its called shock value . you see it and are tricked by it. "oh wow he is so real" suckers. i see the talent , it being really raw and the kid is still green by hip hop standards. he is not anything special. goblin was a huge disappointment only because the hype was so big.

    • e3i8am

      If youre saying his rhymes are purely for shock value you clearly havent payed much attention to tyler as a person. Most of these "shock Value" rhymes are directly taken from his actual views and emotions, just in their most raw and unedited form. Hes being as real as he can possibly be. The line about killing b.o.b and haley williams is exactly how he feels about the song airplane and most of the chord progressions used by artists. I admit the album is a bit too long but this review is completely fair. His artistic talent is undeniable.

    • i bet a nigga would

      music is falling big time. give it some time and people will be shitting on tyler calling him bubble gum, when the next retard starts rapping about putting bananas in his ass. and all the kids will think that is funny and cool and revolutionary. odd future is no wu-tang, odd future is no tribe. as time goes by the rap game will just continue to get weaker and weaker

    impossible to HATE the album unless u are a genuine hater. It may not be to your taste BUT... OF make their own grimey (dope/not commercial) beats, write their own rhymes and do it differently to anyone else who's out. My favourite rap group ever are Gang Starr, I went to see Black Star last night... BUT I salute OF for making their own lane, creating their own sound, doing something creative - something hip hop hasn't done for nearly a decade! Support these kids, if you dont like it go out and make something original and creative because that is what Tyler and his crew are doing right now! 4/5

    Definitely different, definitely not the best but it's like hardcore alternative hiphop. Sonically OFWGKTA is filling a void that mainstream rap was ignoring. Being that these boys are so young and have that "don't give a fuck" attitude, Drake/Wayne fans will hate it while others will find it a refreshing change.

      I dont think its only the lil wayne fans. It also seems to be alot of anti-hipster, pro lyricism groups. You're probably very likely to find that the lil b fans are the same ones as the odd future fans. The concert turnouts are a true reflection of this. I wont go further to say Its only suburban white kids listening because Its not. There are actually alot of sick black people lapping up the content aswell.

    HIPHOPDX, yall have just completely redeemed yourselves!!!! I was thinking, the rating had to be much higher than this (previous error of a 2). And I'm a Hip-Hop Purist forever....

  • Only time I ever agreed with the editor's rating

    Basically this album is the Slim Shady LP with less lyricism and better production. Yeah there's a little filler, but there's so many more great tracks. Sandwitches is a fucking anthem, Tron Cat, Yonkers, Golden, Fish (smoke to that shit), Transylvania and She are all great fucking tracks. Nightmare is nicely honest too. What Tyler lacks in rhyme scheme and complex lyricism he makes up for with crazy punchlines and divine production. This man can make some fucking beats. So much more than just Shock Value.

    • TCM

      Better than Dr. Dre production?

    • Bubba

      I haven't listened yet but comparing this to slim shady lp is probably a stretch i'm sure. Quadruple Platinum and Rollingstones top 500 albums of all time... I don't see Tyler reaching either of those marks. I'll listen to see what all the hype is about but you gotta keep things realistic.

    tyler is a mediocre, repetitive rapper but his beats are good. the only mc worth anyone's time in odd future is earl. earl is/was sick, all of the tracks on his album are mad. i like mellowhype too though. hodgy's got good flow and left brain's beats are as good as tyler's if not better. see: most of yellowwhite, that new song 64.

    Shit is tight, fuck the haters

  • Suggamatic

    Oh c'mon DX. I thought you were better than this. 2 stars? its ATLEAST 3.5 objectivly. There's room for improvement, but over all tyler's rapping is good. It may not be "new" but its better than flocka flame, and fucking wiz kilfa. If you want something different, thats outcome isn't based on what some A&R or record producer says, Just listen to this album. it may surprise you.

  • msterB

    Pathetic. Of all the trash you give 3 stars and you hate on this? You wouldn't know interesting music if it slapped you in your fkn face.

      Exactly!!!! Hating just for the sake of Hatin on something that has quickly generated "buzz" in Hip-Hop. Real Talk son....

  • K.O.

    I honestly love this album. I don't see where the hate is coming from.

    man tyler i like ya shit bro good job

    Doesn't shock me, doesn't offend me...it just sucks. And contrary to what a lot of people think, this isn't revolutionary. shock value/horrorcore is an old ass trick. While Tyler isn't the worst rapper in the world, he damn sure isn't anything new. There's minimalistic beats, and then there's just random sounds put together that sound like an 8-bit video game soundtrack. This is unfortunately the latter. Certified garbage. Oh, and remember kids, nonconforming is conforming to nonconformity. You're just as bad as anyone else. Think for yourself.

      About as dumb as you for taking the time to think that stupid ass argument up. Go fuck your mom again!

      Hey Coolin and CoolinFTW, don't try to be philosophical and shit when you a fucking fool. Im offended because you're a moron who distorted my words.... First of all, Tyler the Creator and Odd Future are not fucking Nonconformist... You an idiot dawg b/c they have a huge following (which automatically means they're not nonconformist). 2nd, Tyler doesn't even like many Underground artists... 3rd, this Nigga specifically told you asswipes not to categorize his music and place it in a fucking Box. Only reason this Nigga being rebellious is because so many of yall critics (and a lot of you are lame Hipsters) feel great about condemning this nigga, his personal life, just because his songs are weird and he likes to vent. People who do this are spiteful, judgmental, miserable, and intolerant. How dumb do you feel right now huh?!

    • CoolinFTW

      That's what I was going for!!!! Almost, but it's cooler if you say faggot cause it sounds meaner LOL

    • Coolin

      Another brilliant joke...you sir are truly original AND rebellious. Tyler would be proud. Here let me try...you are gay. Did I do it right? Am I cool yet?

    • CoolinQueefs

      Thanks!

    • Coolin

      ^good one...you are so cool because you can act just like Tyler! keep being a "non-conformist".

    • Coolin is a bitch

      "Doesn't shock me, doesn't offend me...it just sucks." Kinda like your mom, except she also takes it in the ass

    • yesss

      agree with you 100%

    I know that most people don’t care anymore and that they are going to curse me out for saying this stuff. No wonder this country is messed up, when people listen to this kind of music with profanity, sexual garbage and violence, they think it is all right. First of all don’t give me that crap about freedom of speech, freedom of speech is not about behaving or acting like this, if the founding fathers who wrote the freedom of speech found out that it would end up like this they would be devastated. When I look at the kids today they all have filthy things coming out of their mouth with no respect for anyone, sleeping around with everyone, no wonder half of them are suffering from STD’s and other sexual diseases. This kind of crap has to stop, again I know you want to curse or beat the hell out of me, but I know that there are still decent people out there who think that this kind of stuff Is wrong and it is wrong. We have taken freedom of speech and threw it in a toilet ball with raw sewage swimming around it. The way society is going the way it is (Lack of respect, STD’s, Violence, Divorces, anything goes and nothing is wrong any more) imagine how bad it is going to be in another 25 years, we have to change our ways and become decent with high morals or this country is going to go down. Again I know most of you reading this don’t give a crap and are laughing at me really hard, but that’s the truth.

      What's your degree in? Being a douche on the internet?

      Brando, don't continue to make an as out of yourself! What if you believe the Founding Fathers were evil (just as much if not moreso than Tyler)?!! Slaveowners ughhhh....... 80% of them owned other people, except they weren't viewed as such and were treated like cattle. Fuck you Nigga (Brando). And before you try to flame me bitch, I'm a black man with a 4 year University Degree and I'm so not ignorant.

    • Slaverly

      Founding fathers endorsed slaverly...don't put them on a pedestal.

    • Eat a dick

      You should've just stopped after the first sentence, fuck you faggot

  • Brando

    Odd Future is complete trash. Tyler the creator is complete trash. How can any of you bump to this satanic, dark bullshit? hes got some decent lyrics but damn. this shit isnt listenable. his voice ruins it all for me anyway. hope this flops so these guys die off. Not hatin. Theyre doin their thing, and I respect that. its just that their "thing" is garbage "hip-hop".

    • Brandos Vagina

      Now all em does is yell on record and try to cash in on "turning his life around" he sucks the industry's dick harder than anyone now, fuck him

    • Brando

      Eminem is so much better than these clowns. in Em's MM LP, SS LP days, he was spittin shit similar to this. but it was easier to listen to. Ems was satirical. it was funny. he had a VOICE that didnt sound like Darth fucking Vader. he had substance. These clowns are just spittin nonsense and dissin artists left and right for the sake of being "different" and supplying shock value. well theyre not different. this shits been done before, and its been done in a much better manner.

    • Brando eats shit

      You're wrong because alot of people do listen to it, the noise your mom made when I fucked her was unlistenable btw some people like "satanic, dark bullshit" remember d12, early eminem, grave diggaz, brotha lynch, etc. fuck you

    • NA

      Maybe some people like dark, satanic bullshit? Dumbass
