tyler, the creator
Goblin is the second album from Odd Future's Tyler, The Creator and it's fucking amazing.
Something about his lyrics along with dark beats make the content of this album addictive and consuming. But let me warn you, not for the faint hearted would be an understatement as this record contains things that would make the devil cry. Nightmare-fantasy has been used to describe the essence of this album as Tyler lays down his conscience and narrates himself as volatile, humorous, moody, needy, even vulnerable.
Tyler expresses himself as somebody that literally does not give a fuck about what anyone else thinks. He goes into extreme detail of his life as he is "interviewed" by a figurative therapist. These songs are dope and even though they may push the boundaries of what is considered acceptable in society, he's doing it anyway and ripping the music scene apart at the same time. Every song on this album is worth your irrelevant time.
Currently the biggest hype in live music right now, I would do anything to see Odd Future perform. All I can do is continue to listen to Tyler's album on repeat and follow the other admirers as we witness this crew build momentum. Would definitely recommended this to any Hip Hop listeners as it's not something you can not afford to miss.
They're calling this shit "Horrorcore" and I'm loving it.
