EDITORS’ NOTES

As its title suggests (albeit a little backhandedly), Flower Boy explores a softer side of Tyler, the Creator. Not that he wasn’t thoughtful before, or that he’s lost his edge now—if anything, the dark wit and internal conflict that made Goblin a lightning bolt in 2011 has only gotten richer and more resonant, offset by a sound that cherry-picks from early-'90s hip-hop and plush, Stevie-style soul (“Garden Shed,” the Frank Ocean-featuring “911 / Mr. Lonely”). “Tell these black kids they can be who they are,” he raps on “Where This Flower Blooms.” “Dye your hair blue, s**t, I’ll do it too.”

FLY WITH THE BIRDS IN THE WIND

Tyler always switches it up, but he stays true to himself. Cherry Bomb is a highly slept on album and I know Tyler is gonna crank it up with this album. Awaken now, young child and take a listen.

Thank you!!!

These are the best singles Tyler have ever put out, I'm really excited for what we are getting. This will be his best album, if I'm wrong, I'll change my review.
