Thoughts on Album Cover:
One of his best album covers yet.
Want to Own on Vinyl?:
Flower Boy is Tyler, The Creator’s best album yet. We’ve ditched anger for regret on this release, and it makes the project much more approachable then some of Tyler’s other work. Not only has the tone changed, Tyler seems to have taken mistakes from Cherry Bomb and added the genre he was going for with some laid back flowing on it making it more of a hip hop album then Cherry Bomb. There are even a couple songs that made me double check my iTunes to see if it was actually Tyler, a few of them reminded me of the now trendy King Krule. Tyler has compromised on Flowerboy, what the fans want and what he wants to make, and it makes for a fire album.
