Tyler, The Creator, IGOR – Album Review

Tyler, The Creator’s latest album release “IGOR” is a musical delight that will leave your soul wanting more. From the onset, Tyler The Creator’s “IGOR” attack your senses with the musical onslaught. Layers of instruments are abundant and it creates this blanket that wraps your mind and immerses you in an experience only Tyler can create.

The title track “IGOR’S THEME” comes in hard with well-placed drums and arpeggiated synths. The undertone of gritty pads, bleed-through and help to smack you in the face with a wall of sound.

Moving on to “EARFQUAKE”, the album takes on a more melodic tone. Utilizing beautiful vocals and fantastic melodies, this song lets you know that this is not your father’s Tyler. As an artist Tyler has evolved into his own sound, taking a page out of recent releases such as Childish Gambino’s “Awaken, My Love”, Tyler seems to have a multi-layered experimental approach.


The album takes you through a range of emotions from a dance vibe with “I Think” all the way to a super gritty track titled “NEW MAGIC WAND”. This album pulls no punches and you better be ready for an eclectic ride along musicianship.

I highly recommend Tyler, The Creator’s “IGOR” to anyone who wants a break from the monotony of contemporary music. I look at this album as a palate cleanser in the sense that you will hear something new each time you take a listen. The variation of tracks and Timbre changes helps keep you on your toes. The song arrangement keeps you wanting more, and lyrics provide introspection. Go give this album a listen!
