Tyler the Creator│Blogspot

As the mouthpiece and figurehead of Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All, the teenage hip-hop outfit that's courted controversy and well-nigh governed the blogosphere for the better part of two years, Tyler the Creator is facing down an especially large degree of expectation surrounding his first major-label release. His self-released and entirely self-produced 2009 album, Bastard, made waves for its shock value, but also boasted some genuinely inspired moments that went some way toward vindicating his crew's cult following. His new album, Goblin, is a much larger platform for Tyler's polemical rants, and it will likely be the mainstream's first taste of the OFWGKTA sound. Goblin is just as disturbed and twisted as Tyler's debut. And, moreover, it's every bit as outrageously brilliant. If you can manage to stomach his debauched musings (the album is marinated in misogyny and bigotry), it's impossible not to be awestruck by Goblin. The material visits some truly dark and troubled places, and Tyler's prose is eerily mesmerizing from start to finish. As with Bastard, Goblin is framed by exchanges of dialogue between Tyler and his fictional therapist, whom Tyler voices himself. This façade works to give the album gravity and context, but one gets the impression that there's more than meets the eye with this illusory relationship. In Goblin's more intimate moments, the 20-year-old prodigy wears his heart on his sleeve and exorcises his demons with unnerving candor.
