BBC Review

"We don’t f***ing make horrorcore you f***ing idiots. Listen deeper to the music before you put it in a box."

Welcome to the world of Odd Future. They rap, they skate, they offend, and right now the adolescent LA crew of artists and producers can be found adorning magazine covers and tearing up stages to sold-out crowds. What began as bored kids posting mixtapes and albums for free download has spiralled into a tornado of hype, climaxing around the anticipated Armageddon of their leader, Tyler, the Creator’s Goblin release.

But with great hype comes great scrutiny, and Goblin is an album ready to enrage even the most liberal of listeners. Having already earned accusations of homophobia and misogyny on debut album Bastard, Tyler shows no signs of apology, instead fanning the flames he knows will burn his name with a run of shock tactics reminiscent of every past public enemy from Eminem to Marilyn Manson.

Lyrics like "Rape a pregnant b**** and tell my friends I had a threesome" (Tron Cat) leave a mark of open-mouthed stun. It’s difficult to determine whether his tongue is deep into his own cheek, but there’s certainly a knowingness here.

Radicals opens with a disclaimer: "Don’t do anything I say in this song / It’s f***ing fiction / If anything happens don’t f***ing blame me, white America." A pre-emptive strike at the inevitable backlash for a chorus chant of "Kill people, burn s***, f*** school."

There are many arguments for and against Tyler’s mouth and mind, but once the language barrier is crossed and ears become numb, the real brilliance of Goblin can be heard. It’s in Tyler’s flow, his intricate internal rhymes, wordplay, and rhythmically shifting speech patterns. His delivery is musical; playing like a melody against the self-made harsh and stripped back beats and loops, it’s more Why? than Wu.

Goblin is old school for a new generation, a passion-fuelled breath of fresh air from the stale sea of radio friendly, over-produced and clichéd rap. It goes to prove you can’t box in Tyler, because you really don’t know where he’ll go next.

Like everyone else has been saying, Tyler is mis-understood in his song writing. He's not just talking about raping bitches and killing them it's all from different perspectives or alter egos (Wolf Haley, Tron Cat). If you watch some interviews with him he's a really really smart guy, who knows alot more than he makes out. His music is deep and thoughtful, plus he spits better than a camel on heat, buy this album!

Don't read or pay attention to the press reviews of this album before listening to it yourself. Majority of the pieces written on it just compare it to other works with little understanding about the artists direction. Tyler has often stated in interviews that he writes from the perspective of famous serial killers and that the songs are meant to be like scenes in a movie so don't take the content to heart like most people complaining about it. That said the production on this album is incredible and really cohesive making it very easy to listen to from start to finish. I also found it gets better with each listen. I'd recommend listening to it in a really good pair of headphones (I own a pair of Sony MDR-V6s and Grado SR60s) to appreciate the mixing and sonic variety.

My personal fav tracks are: Her, Analog, Goblin, Fish, Nightmare and Tron Cat.

Tyler the Creator has created a bit of a storm in the music world, with his homophobic and religous bashing lyrics. It's this storm the whole marketing machine was aiming for and succeeded in creating. All publicity is good publisity after all. I don't honestly think that any music could offend me and this doesn't come close, the people complaining about this record obviously haven't heard Vinnie Paz before who make Tyler look like a shrinking violet.

Aside from the blatant lines to cause a reaction their is some lyrical merit here and although he isn't the best spitter some of what he has to say will make you stop and think. For me the biggest problem with the lyrics are that they often decend in to imature rants, hooks like "kill people, burn s**t, f**k school" really sound childish to me. It's hard to empathise with this when you have been out of mainstream education for over 10 years, that's not Tyler's fault but if you past your teeen years its worth noting.

The production is generally quite nice and fairly original. It's certainly not mainstream in sound and is stripped back sampling with heavy dreams and eerie effect, similar to a lot of music from the label Anticon What I really like about the beats is the basslines which don't seem to find they're way in to hip hop as much these days.

My final point is about Tyler's whole alterego concept that run's through the album like Brighton in a stick of rock. It's a really played out concept having been done by, Eminem, Kool Keith, MF DOOM, RZA etc etc. Tyler doesn't bring anything new to the idea either so it's best left alone.

To sum up it's not for everyone and I would strongly suggest listening to some tracks on youtube before buying.

The songs and the story are creative. Each song tells its specific part in the story he has created and the beats and lyrics are stupidly good.

The CD format of this album is already up their easily as one of my favourite albums along with B***ard and having been an avid Odd Future listener for some years now, after acquiring my first vinyl player I purchased this. I have to say that listening to it on vinyl made me feel like I was listening to it for the first time all over again. It just made the whole thing seem a lot darker in sound. I would definitely recommend this to anyone thinking of purchasing.

Format: Audio CD
Every critic of Tyler gets preemptively answered on this album, and most of their comments so far have been pretty much invalid. It works both as a single body of work and as a sequel to 'Bastard'. The beats are fantastic, especially on 'Tron Cat' and the Left Brain produced 'Transylvania'. Syd The Kid's production is tight and balances the skits, vocal effects and noises almost flawlessly.

Lyrically a lot of the tracks revolve around Tyler talking about the frustrations in his life, and a lot of the 'misogynist' content can be seen as a by-product of this. Sometimes it's sad to listen to, sometimes hilarious. It makes you jump up and shout, or sit down and be mellow, and sometimes you think you're listening to the audio commentary on a film.

Journalists and reviewers need to stop using it to generalize modern music and stop comparing it to every other rap album. It is what it is.

And it gets better with every listen.
Wolf Gang.
