Without constantly conjuring up an air of controversy about their moves, Odd Future can sound decidedly dull.

You should skip to the final track on Odd Future's The OF Tape Vol. 2 to reach the project's climax. That moment, of course, is Earl Sweatshirt's rhyming return to the collective Odd Future fold on "Oldie," he cracks the hazy, hypnotic beat shortly after the seven minute mark, and blesses it with a subdued but intelligent performance. Lately, the hullabaloo about Earl's return has dwarfed the Odd Future hype machine, and Earl's shadow has cast doubt on the appeal of Tyler, the Creator's tykes now that their persona of menace has been blunted. The OF Tape Vol. 2 fails to help their cause: Without constantly conjuring up an air of controversy about their moves, Odd Future can sound decidedly dull.

The 17 tracks that precede "Oldie" are a hodgepodge of styles and line-ups; they're random in an ineffective way, with crew members seemingly shoe-horned together and the songs rolled out with little thought as to how the mixtape-slash-album plays as a whole. (The segue between Hodgy Beats and Tyler's industrial and abrasive "P" into Frank Ocean's largely a cappella "Snow White" is either ill-judged or simply annoying.) When Odd Future were first picked up by the mainstream, this sort of thing wasn't a problem. By positioning and promoting themselves as public and industry menaces they ensured that the focus was on the shenanigans and the back stories, not the music. But now they've settled into their role in the pop culture firmament (they have an Adult Swim show!) that aura of excitement has been extinguished, leaving their music bare and too often lackluster and flaccid.

Earl's verse on "Oldie" has rightly caught the headlines, but there's a nugget in Tyler's rap on the same song that's more telling of Odd Future's current plight. He sounds sincere when he raps, "This is for the niggas in the suburbs/ And the white kids with nigga friends that say the n-word/ And the ones who got called weird, fag, bitch, nerd/ 'Cause you was into jazz, kitty cats, and Steven Spielberg." But just like Odd Future themselves, there's little weird or outsider about Tyler's demographical characters. Odd Future have mined the online hype machine quite excellently to get to this point in their career - now they need to concentrate on proving their musical worth the old-fashioned way.

  • nate

    Tyler,the creator,domo genesis,hodgy beats, and earl sweatshirt are the only good rappers in the group.

    Odd Future is the shit. Some people can't understand cause its not made for you or they just have a bad taste in music

  • Anonymous

    they dont sound hungry any more

  • TdotFromDaBronx

    Never understood the hype over this group Tyler does what Eminem has always done and the rest of the group is not impressive at all but they go along with the beats that sound the same besides Frank Ocean I have yet to see potential or what the hype is about.

    • Aki

      Amen to that, funny how quickly people forget. Lyrically, slim shady LP and marshall mathers LP were fire, Tyler simply cannot spit. OF appeals only to those kids who missed out on early Eminem material because of their fascination with obscene and upfront lyrics.

  • gtfo

    leave hiphop alone for god sake

  • B91

    HORRIBLE. full of ignorant, lazy raps. they need to go crawl into a cave and die. where's the REAL music now a days??? the only good artist in the group is Frank Ocean.

  • arun

    fuck you all, there are some good songs on there, just need to give them time

  • shaminizzle

    expected much more from this album, maybe cause i'm a big tyler the creator fan and he didnt take over this like he shouldve. idk they just dont seem to care, seem like they recorded in basement when they could have used perfect quality. idk yo just wasnt as good as i hoped stil pretty entertaining wit the videos tho

  • Sliggs

    I fux with OF sometimes, but they got some really weak songs too

    The OF Tape Vol 2 is soo amazing! http://bit.ly/FRxZB8

  • J

    Don't like tyler and hodgy as much in this album like I do in Goblin (even though Rella was a sick video), but this album was better then their first odd future at least the second half was, Domo and Left Brain were my favorite and their's more Odd Future that I'll continue to listen too I also like that they put Forest Green in this album again too. (2nd best song next to 67 in the first OF album) Also a great album to blaze too.

  • Shelby

    I'd give this album a 5. This group is bringing chaos into the music industry--spicing it up a bit. I respect them. Their US tour videos shows how they connect with their fans and just how insane this group is

    • J'Highness

      Oops, meant to say "Left Brain and Tyler".

    • J'Highness

      I'm a big fan of what they represent. Their music isn't mostly great, but I love what Tyler and Frank has done. I've noticed all the other members have played a role too.(Left Brain and Domo got some dope beats) So, I didn't expect much from this album, I wasn't even waiting for it to drop. But I listened to it and liked some of it. I love Frank Ocean, but he wasn't a factor on this joint. And I always thought Earl was super nice, and after listening to "Oldie", he's nicer than I thought.

  • eric

    can't stand the fact that these faggots are compared to wu tang. fuck that shit. bunch of retards rapping about retorted shit. but i guess it's suitable for all the mindless tv raised retards that make up the new generation. whack ass fuck!!!


    I'm 28 years old. I grew up in the 90's listening to Wu-Tang Clan, a Tribe Called Quest, De La Soul, Onyx, The BeatNuts, Nas, Big Pun, Heiroglyphics etc. Basically Real HipHop. I like what Odd Future represents and I think Bastard, Radical and Earl were amazing mixtapes. Earl and Tyler are worth listening to. The rest of the crew doesn't hold up. I understand that in order for them to succeed they need to expand and build a brand. But like the article says, they need to prove themselves lyrically. As a collective, they suck, but Tyler and Earl are amazing compared to the rest of their generation. Hopefully as time goes on they grow musically. Everybody sucks when they're starting out. Give it some time.

  • innanet

    If you gave this a 5 you're a damn fool. I was looking forward to this and i'm really disappointed, as were a whole lot other people. "Oldie" was the only redeeming point. The production was wack, verses were tired and boring, I hope they can put out something better next time. 1/5

    Only nice ones are Earl and Frank Ocean. Like people dont realize Earl is dope as fuck but they categorize him with the rest of them. They all can be good too if they stopped trying so hard to be unique...but no they are not the calibur of Hippy or the Outdoorsmen..or Slaughterhouse

  • bmocon13

    In general, I think it's a strong album. The production value is much higher than their previous releases, and across the entire group the quality of their rapping has gotten much better. Plus they play a great live show. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XYI2I7gRIxk

    Let me get this straight. You give Cudi a 4 and call him a genius for using worn out boring melodies with a voice that sounds like an emo kid screaming with his throat slit. That's a genius at work. But this tape which actually knocks and has some bangers like the two videos already released with original beats is boring. No wonder no one takes your reviews seriously.



  • Anonymous

    If you dont understand how to properly review an album, why would you even try? Focus more on the music, rather than the order. And dont complain just because its not shock value anymore. HHDX set this shit up foreal. Picked a hater to review it, instead of someone who would actually do their job right. Phillip is a fag, the order he put this review in doesnt make any coehesive sense, i kinda didnt even read it, i just saw that it didnt look like it was put together well, without paying attention to the substance, so fuck him, and his mom.

  • ClaudeJulien

    I mean, the reviewer tried to criticize the way they formatted their album concept instead of actually tanigibily reviewing what it is...who does that? He made one criticism, and that's the order of the songs, which is SO MINOR anyways...WTT had New Day and That's My Bitch back to back, with that pink panther sounding interlude playing (to act as some metaphorical theme music of switching between their real roots and superficial rap). If you have actual criticism of the music, let's hear it, that's the point of a review. Instead he takes the easy way out of calling it boring, and being upset it wasn't a cohesive album...not kidding it isn't cohesiver...it's GROUPS of artists within a group who all have different sounds. It was meant to get the lesser known groups (The Jet Age of Tomorrow, The Internet, Mellowhype to a lesser extent) and rappers (Domo, Mike G) some spotlight alongside Tyler. The three most talented artists (Frank, Tyler, and Earl) were the three most underrepresented, and the most improved artists (Domo & Hodgy) are finally proving their worth. All the complaining was about how they relied on shock value, yet they finally put out a pure music release, and they get bashed for it. Ironic, huh? This is a flawed album, but it was supposed to be. It was a showcase of talent, and they succeeded in that. Everyone knows about Tyler and Frank by now, and everyone knows Earl's potential. What I didn't know is Left Brain is a pretty dope producer, Hodgy is one of the most improved rappers in the game, and Domo is capable of warranting a full album soon.

      Just music? When i look at a song i study every detail within. I take it as more of a lesson and/or inspiration. So for me and i'm sure many others it is like school. Not a huge fan of OF, but starting to warm up to Earl.

      I agree with this 90%. I am not sure how much Hodgy has improved though. I guess his flow is better but lyrically, he is still saying random stuff to make a rhyme. Not much skill in that. But I will say he did nothing to detract from the likability of the album

    Every review, it's the same story. People hate on it and then the dick riders tell them how stupid they are and that they don't know hip hop. Then tell them to go listen to Lil Wayne or Drake. Music is subjective and it only matters how it makes YOU feel. The fan boys need to stop attacking people when they shit on your beloved artists. If you were really confident in their sound and talent, you wouldn't have to justify it to some anonymous clown. However, it is funny to watch you bicker back and forth so carry on.

    I mean look the reviewer is clearly a old ass loser. Fuck yall hip hop elitist faggots, this the new sound yall old faggots still tryna advance its all over now TAKE IT LIKE A FUCKIN MAN BITCH

    WHO cares about these Satanic Clowns!!!!!!!!!

  • This is all pop music

    I got to agree overall with their opinion because they're sound is dull and the quality of the music that I've heard sounds cheap sort of like lil waynes lyrics when he goes off on one and starts talking trash, there's no real thought or heart gone into it, no soul!

  • bkstylz

    I disagree with this review, I don't think this is a great album, but there are a few decent cuts on here. Some of the crew members are pretty wack but I won't judge the group based on them. We all know Hodgy, Domo, Tyler & Earl are the guys who will make or break OF. I saw growth in Domo's lyrical ability, Hodgy is Hodgy (I can't understand what he is talking about), Tyler didn't disappoint on his beats or rhymes and Earl is dope as ever. I would give this album a 3.5 out 5 on the strength there are 7-8 solid cuts on this album which is more than I can say about a lot of them.

    these dudes are trying to make a movement like wu tang did but are failing miserably. No longevity. They are targeting a good market of kids, who think that because they can "relate" to these lames who put on a decent front of being hip hip, they too can form a fake ass identity of being hip hop. Simple as that. Get on some real shit that will inspire you to do better and give you real game on how to break bitches off. K.R.I.T, curren$y, Kendrick Lamar, jay electronica, j Cole. Hodgy beats is fresh doe.

      no nigga.i know lots of people of the darker skin variety including myself that like OFWGKTA.thats just like that stupid ass "all black folks like watermelon" saying.and what does it matter if you or ur fans are not from the ghetto?thats like me sayin FUCK TUPAC ALL HIS FANS ARE A BUNCH OF HOODRATS AND LOW LIFE BLACK DUDES WHO ARE ALWAYS IN THE PEN FOR RAPE AND MURDER!lol like really?every teen hood or burb rebels its natural.tyler gives plenty of food for thought you just never herd the tracks because ur heads too far up ur ass.no he really doesn't lol.if its not weed hes talking about its a sports car or money

      there fan bas eis a bunch of white suburban kids tryin to rebel they'll grow outta OF n be like what the fuck was I listening to, n on the real Curren$y maybe a weed rapper but he's giving more food for thought then anybody in OF with maybe the exception of Hodgy and Earl

    • Anonymous

      they are moving up and have a HUGE fanbase but ur saying they are failing?!?!what the fuck type sense does that make? "decent front of being hip hip"...no front at all.hip-hop is a culture ment for everyone of any style.curren$y is a weed rapper so no food for thought in his music at all.J.Cole talks about nothing but the opposite sex too much like we get it he likes women.the whole crew fresh doe

    Garbage mc's indeed. Even the square in the camp jacket says he's only rapping to make money, go get a fuckin day job nigga. Disgrace to the game all just to make some change from the hip hop stans. Hodgy beats is the only one I see with potential. Rap about some conscious shit and make it twisted if your gonna do it at all.

    i dont give fuck what no onesays.. thse kids aint that bad.... just different...... plus tyler ripped that shit at the end. hard!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! first time i hear him spit some real shit..

    • nick

      if thats the first time you heard tyler spit something real you dont listen to OF, his first cd Bastard was basically about him not having his father around and Goblin was all about not having Earl around.

  • Germanigguh

    They're pretty dope...tyler makes very interesting beats and some of them (Tyler, Hodgy, Earl) really got lyrical potential...stopt hatin', those guys are original, all you haters: go and listen to you random trap-rappers lol

    Loved it. Album is amazing, but, yes, it's not for everyone.

  • Still Swag

    2.5 DX really Doms, White and Oldie all were gems but the Hodgy Assault on the album totally gets over looked and his progression as an artist. DX all niggas failed on this review big time. oh and PHILLIP MLYNAR you just a hating ass bitch, fuck you critics, eat a dick. GOLF WANG!

      so just because you listen to outkast you think ur a true hip-hop head?smh.listenin to Outkast and callin everything thats new and different wack does not make you a hip-hop head you poser. Diggy flopped thats a horrible example.nigga Hodgey got bars!outkast could make a album of nothing but fart noises and you fake hip-hop head nazi's would call it a classic lol.

    • Anonymous

      dont call yourself a hip hop head you said Hodgey has verses as nice as Andre and Big Boi on ATLiens you don't know shit about hip hop, a tru hip hop head doesnt give a fuck about sales Diggy had pretty solid first week of sales that mean he a good mc?

    • WTF

      " I dont want OF to be clone I dont respect new artists that do there own thing that actually got lyrical talent" WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOW HATER ALERRRRRRRRRRRRRRT!! ok stop dick riding Kendrick.people on this site always cry about how much they hate Odd Future and then get on some rant about how they dont sound like Big KRIT or Kendrick Lamar or J.Cole so they are wack.fuckin stupid.stop suckin those niggaz dicks!J.Cole's debut didn't outsell OF Tape Vol. 2.goes to show that ur golden boy emcee's are not all they are cracked up to be.big krit has all these dick riders but i bet his debut wont sell cuz his fans are poser hip-hop heads

      nigga big boi's B.o.B. verse compared to Hodgey's Oldie verse...dont dick ride outkast like everyone else on some wana-be hip-hop head poser/follower tip i dont fuck wit that bricksquad shit so fuck off with that assumption.

    • Anonymous

      what little validity you had as a hiphop head left with that comment, Hodgey verse as good if not better then Andre or Big Boi? Nigga please if you actually think hodgey is as good as Andre let alone Big Boi i dont wanna hear your opinion cause your stupid n don't know shit about hip hop n lyricism keep listenin to your Gucci and OJ n telling yourself these guys got dope lyrics. I dont want OF to be clone I dont respect new artists that do there own thing that actually got lyrical talent, like Kendrick or Tanya Morgan there not jackin anyone's style but got serious content

      ur right dude...it makes them better for the fact that those "legendary" "real hip-hop" "top lyricists" "the greats" blah blah blah...are on the dick! i have ATLiens muhfucka!whats ur point?just because they dont sound like outkast clones they are wack??that sounds lame. any Hodgey verse is just as good if not better than any Big Boi or Andre verse.dont place something vintage in hip-hop on top just because its old.

    • Anonymous

      I don't give a fuck if Wu-Tang Supports them n Nas has recorded shit with them (which i dont know if I've herd that), doesnt make them as good as wu-tang, doesnt make em as good as nas, the fact that you would even consider these fools in the same class shows your lack of hip hop knowledge go listen to ATLiens n tell me that theres even one verse on the entire OF album that is even close to the worst verse on ATLiens

    • WG

      typical.just like every other poser naming old cats but yet dont own any of the material. and you think there is nothing wrong with those artists?you think Odd Future should be the main ones lynched but those artists aren't exactly perfect. Wu-Tang was on Odd Future's dick when Tyler dropped Yonkers Nas has recorded a few records with Odd Future. Common talks about the same jazzy up lift ppl shit that everyone from his time talked about as well. no1 listens to Sha Stimuli. Big KRIT still isn't past his rookie stage regardless all the co-sign's and ppl on his dick who most likely won't even buy his album but claim to be a krit fan. J.Cole is not what he used to be.Mr. Nice Watch is a perfect example of where he's guna go which means hes guna be another oh look at me i got bitchs and im ballin type rapper. Blu is boring as fuck Live!!and his music isn't that great either. Fashawn has no fans at all.

      obviously the classics like Wu-Tang, Nas, Common and Outkast, but modern stuff Kendrick Lamar, Sha Stimuli, Big K.R.I.T., Honors English, J. Cole and anything produced by Exile so Blu and Fashawn all those artists are way better lyrically n Big K.R.I.T's beats > OF beats

  • Tommy

    Haters man. Props to Tyler for producing most of this album

  • lame

    These guys are incredibly overrated, i liked them when they first came out a year ago, but over the months it became obvious they just wanted attention, and to me there whole "shock rap" isn't nearly as appealing as when Eminem was doing it in his prime years. These guys have an incredibly boring sound and flow, and aren't nearly as likeable as an Eminem. These guys are a bunch of clowns, and honestly it's obvious there on there 14th minute of fame and pretty soon will be forgotten. Only one of these dudes i like is Earl, rest are annoying and stupid.

  • Mr. Wallace

    That rating was too low IMO, I never really liked OF, only Tyler's guest spots. This tape changed my wind, these dudes are dope.

  • The Ice Cold Phenom

    2.5 Stars no doubt. Odd Future is taking the wrong approach to this music thing. I would consult but hell my services are not free of charge lol. But at least they did create some mainstream buzz which is plus when considering how many acts never get this far.

    When I saw Philips article on instrumental hip hop I could have slapped him but after seeing this, I have nothing but props. After all It will only take a couple more bad albums/reviews and extremely poor sales to get rid of this garbage that is odd future.

    A short review, and all they had to say was, "its not as controversial". Never mind that the production has greatly improved on this album. Sometimes HHDX really has no clue.

      They forsure dont rip off wu-tang, just because they all have they own style and are a group and dont want to work with mainstream f**k boi artists doesnt mean they took any ones style. and for eminem, tyler, earl, and hodgy have always been influenced by the MMLP but in my opinion they still dont sound like em, if you looking for someone whos biting eminem hop on hopsins dick

".yet you had a conversation with yourself saying you won this arguement when you really lost."that really wasn't me but ok lol ya know its not impossible that someone thought i was right and you are a lame ass hater.like i said haters automatically lose." Keep telling yourself that im a fan because i know the names of songs or what they do because according to you theres only one hiphop site to get news from."LMAO you never stop with the dumb shit.you just put yourself on blast.you know song names and what they do and apparently you go to other sites and read up on them and bash them because inside you really like odd future? b.o.b....dumb ass Tyler fired the first shot.hopsin disses everyone and never gets responses cuz its a desperate attempt for promotion lol so he doesn't matter.he is cool with justin beiber oh no we must kill him now lmao you hate tyler because he is cool with justin beiber?do you also hate females because they like justin beiber?lmao wait.dont answer that. " He also says mainstream rappers and then collaborates with Game and says he talks to lil wayne on a constant basis"...he also says WHAT ABOUT mainstream rappers?nothing.hates underground rappers though.cuz he likes games music.because he likes lil waynes music.a bitch made crew doesn't start riot's,sell 50k first week sales,no.5 on charts,get arrested all the time,say what the fuck they want and do what the fuck they want,sell out shows,punch on muhfuckaz that talk shit to em.if you call that bitch made then you got it twisted.Frank and Hodgey would beat ur ass so it would be pointless the rule them as your favs lol you forget Tyler basically gave them a successful career, you better recognize dude.really if you wana keep tellin urself that i was just talking to myself then go ahead and throw a party about it i dont care lol.lmao dude you are in denial bad!!went down in flames....HAHAHAHAHAHA your fuckin dumb.if i have perfect facts and comebacks to every dumb one you said how is it im the one goin down in flames? sad is you coming to the article just to talk shit and be a hater.but you would never call me that to my face though pussy. :)

      Yeah apparently i lost when the only one getting mad is you, you butthurt teenage bitch. You say i have no life then you analyze everything i say, then you say i have no life again because i came back to the first page to write a comment...yet you did tue same thing....then again i apparently i dont have a life because i made up two fake people on purpose....yet you had a conversation with yourself saying you won this arguement when you really lost. Keep telling yourself that im a fan because i know the names of songs or what they do because according to you theres only one hiphop site to get news from. You like a dude who wont diss rappers (b.o.b and hopsin) but disses a r&b singer (bruno mars) but he also thinks justin beiber is his dog. He also says mainstream rappers and then collaborates with Game and says he talks to lil wayne on a constant basis. You listen to a bitch made dude with a bitch ass crew that has no skill besides Frank and Hodgy. You can say you won and make up another fake name to say you did but you know you went down in flames with this argument, mainly because youre a sad hypocritical bitch.
