Tyler, the Creator

Tyler the Creator’s Igor hit the shelves this past Friday and as unconventional an artist Tyler is, his latest record is just as much a reflection of that. Igor is received best if approached as an exploratory concept album that dives down pathways that Tyler has previously never explored. Igor is as much an album about love as it is fear and growth. The subject matter of Igor is pretty multi faceted and Tyler reflects that in the music itself. Mixing hip-hop with synth pop with R&B, Tyler proves (again and again) that he can’t be enclosed within any genre or box.
