It honestly seems more than 3 years ago since Earl Sweatshirt's debut project Earl was released, considering everything that has happened to him and Odd Future. But what makes the 3 year gap between Earl and Doris seem most suprising is the immense growth of Earl as an artist...

From a more raspy, dark, multi syllable delivery of lyrics to even producing his own songs (Under the alias randomblackdude) Earl feels his most comfortable musically. With his new style being perfectly flexed on songs like 'Molasses', 'Hive' and 'Centurion', Earl even gets introspective with subjects such as love ('Sunday' with Frank Ocean) and the pressures that have faced him since returning from Somoa ('Chum') and making this very album ('Burgudy').

From beginning to end, the 15 track offering fails to dissapoint any fan of Earl's or of Odd Future's with Earl being lyrically and sonically outstanding throughout. Even when the majority of the song is given to his guest features (Tyler on 'Sasquatch', Sk La' Flaire on 'Pre' and Mac Miller on 'Guild') Earl never seems like a guest on his own album.

The only flaw of this album (and it is a small one) is that most of the songs on the album are under 3 minutes long, and when every song is as amazing as the one before it you sort of think "come on Earl, just one more verse!". However, saying this, no song feels rushed or premature, definitely a case of "less is more".

Awesome, favourite tracks Burgundy, Sunday, Hive, Chum and Guild. Big step up from first album, great features on this album eg. Frank Ocean, Mac Miller,Tyler The Creator,Vince Staples and Casey Veggies. Also has production from The Neptunes (Pharrell Williams and Chad Hugo) and BadBadNotGood. Complex verses so maybe those who prefer Tyler's style might not be a fan of this. This album definitely requires many plays to get used to but overall i love it. Looking forward to Earl's next album already!

Probably not for the average Odd Future fans, but more for those who have always appreciated the poetry behind Sweatshirts unique lyrics and beat styles.

I Love this album, but others hate it.

Earl's cult status has grown hugely over the past few years, mainly because while Tyler,the Creator and the rest of OF made it big, Earl was AWOL (OF Fans know the story). Doris shows that there is far more to Earl than this and his disturbing self titled mixtape. Right from the beginning, Doris is Low key. He raps in a low voice with understated yet clever rhymes. He raps with an honesty and sincerity especially on tracks such as 'Chum'. Right from the start this album gets better and better and by the time 'Centurion' kicks in with its Dj Shadow style drum beats and tales of armed robbery, its obvious that this is a truly brilliant record. Tyler, the Creator, Frank Ocean and RZA all make great guests and the production is brilliant all the way through. Much like Earl himself Doris has a cult status that is set to grow and grow. This is one of the best hip hop records ever made.

An amazing hip-hop record, full of humor, pathos, and thoughtfulness. It's also a light-year ahead of his first mixtape, earl. It's well worth your time.
