Released: Apr 2013
Label: Odd Future
Wolf finds Tyler in a more generous mood than 2011's Goblin. He lobs a few nasty epithets like before, but he spends more time reflecting on fame ("Awkward") and rabid fans ("Colossus") while trying to convince us he isn't homophobic ("Rusty"). He overuses a keyboard melody inspired by N.E.R.D., but he works up some clever rhythms, too, on "Ifhy" and "48." While sticking to his meandering confessionals, and missing his long-lost father on "Answer," Tyler seems to understand that maturity means he can't repeat the bratty provocations that made Goblin so infamous.
