Agreed. The production is especially great.

Really loving it thus far. Nice and concise with plenty of replayable tracks. The whole thing kind of reminds me of the fuzzy, distorted coda from Kanye's "Runaway", but it feels like a natural progression from his last album. I think I heard it could become the first entirely self-produced solo album to reach #1 in the US ohmy.gif

I'm gonna try and listen to the rest of this album some time soon but I've at least checked out 'EARFQUAKE' for now - Tyler really cannot sing at all but he somehow makes it work anyway?? It is reminding me a little bit of Kanye's 'Runaway' which is a very good thing. Also loved Playboi Carti's part.

The music video is hilarious as well.



Loving seeing Tyler getting so much success (and with seemingly such a bold and experimental album this time).

I feel like Pitchfork have been really conservative with high ratings lately, kind of like they're afraid to commit to definitive high scores to albums so soon after they're release (in case I dunno, the album doesn't stand the test of time), but they can't delay the reviews because then they'll get less clicks. It felt a bit off when they only gave To Pimp A Butterfly a 9.3 in 2015, and then they spent the rest of the year seemingly realising they messed up, and proceeding to give Tame Impala, Sufjan Stevens & Jamie xx all that exact same score. Any higher and it's making a statement that they wouldn't be willing to back up. It's such a far cry from when they gave My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy a 10.0 the day after it came out. So it's all a matter of whether or not they'll correct themselves come end of year(/decade!) with IGOR.

haha, I adore them both, but P4K put one at #1 and the other at #6 in their End Of Year list so it's clear where their allegiance was tongue.gif

'I Think' gives me "Graduation" type vibes. I thought of "Stronger" while I was listening to this.

Got around to hearing this now and I absolutely love this album, maybe even overtaking 'Assume Form' for my favourite album of the year wub.gif The first 8 songs (ignoring the interlude x) are fantastic in particular and the production is on point on every single track. Definitely hearing a lot of Kanye influence throughout, especially on 'A BOY IS A GUN*' which is basically 'Bound 2' part 2 (even uses the same sample).

'A BOY IS A GUN', yes really like this also from the album. I wonder what Kanye would think of it.

He won the Best Rap Album at the Grammys. A joke that that was his only nomination but at least they didn't snub him on that one ~

He then proceeded to call out the Grammys' lowkey racist genre classifications in an interview after the ceremony, specifically calling out the word 'urban' as a 'politically correct way of saying the N word'. I'm forced to stan.

Such a deserved win, shouldíve been up for album of the year too.

One of my favourites of the last five years, I feel like itís the true successor to My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy in terms of scale, production, impeccable guest features.

His performance last night was incredible too, heís at the top of his game right now.

This is absolutely amazing. It's exactly what I want from a hip hop album, so inventive in its production and the lyrics are more relatable to me than hip hop albums often are. It's like a perfect hybrid of Kanye and Outkast.

I can't believe I've been missing out!!!

I'm glad you have joined the IGOR appreciation — it really is a fantastic album, and one of the best of 2019.
