Like vampires to True Blood™, Tyler and his band of OFWGKTA ragamuffins supplement their life force with stimulants, hallucinogens and ovary juice.

“Transylvania” – Review Of Tyler, The Creator’s Goblin

By | 127 Comments

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/?p=192184"> The Smoking Section Crew is all about giving the music sent our way a clean eardrum whether it's a review or a quick music post we throw up. With new music becoming more and more commonplace, the proper digestion period has become a thing of the past. Odd Future's Tyler, The Creator has a unique situation considering the fact that, exactly a year ago, he was releasing free music like the rest of contemporaries. And now, thanks in part to excessive publicity, he has an album--Goblin--in stores while many of those aforementioned contemporaries do not. But is it the actual music or just the newfound media darling's hijinks that is hogging the spotlight? Well as a crew, we put that question to the test by listening and then stopping to listen some more. The end result waged one of our usual roundtable discussions and like we've done several times before, we decided to let the readers in on the exclusive debate to see how Goblin's rating was spawned. <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2011/03/video-odd-futures-tyler-does-yonkers-on-piano"> <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/author/david-d/">David D</a>: I think my initial anger towards this album came from the praise that it got from the pseudo intellectual people that try to brainf*ck us into thinking that albums like this and Lil B are "brilliant.

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2011/05/new-music-tyler-the-creator%e2%80%93tron-cat"> Frank Ocean's appearance will lure many into checking out "She," slated to be the second single off Goblin. But rest assured, Odd Future's frontman Tyler makes sure that even his tales of caring are bugged out love affairs. Goblin drops on May 10 and there's been no faucet's sprung yet? Quite a remarkable accomplishment in 2011. Tyler, The Creator Feat.

Tyler, The Creator – “Tron Cat” x Goblin Album Snippets

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2011/04/tyler-the-creator-talks-royal-wedding-with-nme"> “Plan on either dying from suicide or my asthma, And being the only bastard buried in a box logo casket” Odd Future's everywhere, as depicted in the picture above. As unavoidable as their presence is I still contend they're worth watching. Maybe not deserving of the huge preoccupation and pats on the back as most have given them but that's the way the ball bounces. A few days ago, a friend of respected opinion and I were conversing. "I ride for them with an asterisk" was a phrase he shared with me and I agree. My listening involves taking a buffet-style approach to their music and retaining the joints I like and discarding the others. Like it or not, Tyler and friends' musical chops are developing but evident. Don't believe? Did you catch how other cats did their own renditions of "Yonkers"? In advance of Goblin's release, new <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/tag/tyler-the-creator">Tyler</a> found its way to the internuts on Friday.

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/?p=169004"> Ever listen to a piece of music or watch a clip and don't understand the righteous zeal others associate with it? My relationship with Tyler's "Yonkers" works that way. Chess said <a href="http://twitter.com/ChessNoCheckers/status/36067085490585600">"shock and awe,"</a> but I wasn't shocked or awed at all.
