Favourite Song on Album:

Listen to This Album When You’re:

Looking for absolutely ridiculous, angry, original hip hop.

Thoughts on Album Cover:

Hilarious, I love it!

Want to Own on Vinyl?:

No too uneven.

Final Thoughts:

Making any album to have more tracks than 12 songs is ambitious, but can really backfire on you. On Wolf I feel like too much was packed into one sitting. Tyler, The Creator is incredible, don’t get me wrong, but there are two albums here forced to be on one making the whole thing seemed a little mish-mashed and unfocused. When he hits the pocket though it’s so much fun to listen to; Tamale, Parking Lot, and Answer being great examples of his diversity. Tyler is angry, and he’s going to piss people off, that’s kinda his gimmick (niche), if you are easily offended by language or political incorrectness this is not your album. If you take lyrics with a grain of salt and are into crazy flows/beats you’ll feel at home.
