While IGOR may not be a perfect album in itself, it is the most perfect album Tyler could have made right now.

Tyler continues his development of "Flower Boy" seamlessly and cemented his status as one of the most artistically exciting musicians in the US scene. "For Real This Time."

This rich and messy melange of rap, funk and driving beats sees him shedding the guise of vulgar internet provocateur, revealing the genuine artist underneath.

Like a non-relationship, the psychedelic soul-inspired album feels endless and all-encompassing, then hard not to put on repeat.

A psychodrama less about repression than about romance.

This is not only Tyler’s best album, it’s an early contender for 2019 year-end lists.

The wildly inventive set pulls together the 28-year-old multifaceted artist’s love of sensual R&B, lopsided rhythms and candid confessions in a crisp, sonically restless 40-minute set that rarely hews to expectations.

IGOR is a commendable, yet flawed album, one that further challenges what we can and should expect from a rap album in 2019.

This is his album, his truth and his vision, and while it may be a slower, more winding ride than we're used to, the scenery is gorgeous.

As Tyler chronicles on his 2019 masterpiece, IGOR, the present isn’t always paradise, and love is more complicated than our daydream idealizations.
