EDITORS’ NOTES

After kicking in the door as a 16-year-old rap phenomenon, Odd Future's Earl Sweatshirt, now 19, is unleashing Doris. His first full-length album further establishes him as a promising talent in hip-hop. With production from The Neptunes ("Burgundy"), drunken ad-libs from RZA ("Molasses"), rapping by Frank Ocean ("Sunday"), and energetic cameos from Tyler, The Creator ("Whoa", "Sasquatch"), Earl's introduction is assertive. Swerving among hard raps, smooth melodies, and jazz-infused chords, Doris is eclectic, elusive, and hard to pin down. By the time the record finishes with the sweeping soul samples of "Knight," Earl's outing makes for an entertaining ride.
