Tyler, the Creator

Goblin (XL)


It’s easy to buy into the Odd Future hype. But their messianic leader, Tyler, the Creator’s new solo album falls flat compared to the work of OFWGKTA’s MellowHype and Frank Ocean. The beats are boring and the lyrics are overtly offensive. That’s not to say Tyler, the Creator isn’t creative. He’s good at marketing himself, and some of his rhymes are pretty clever, but it’s hard to believe him at the end of “Sandwitches” when he says, “We don’t make horror-core/Listen to the music before you put it in a box.” If it walks like a duck and talks like a duck, well, that’s a pretty homophobic and misogynistic duck.
