May 17, 2019The production here is superb. Tyler has never been one for traditional song structure, but on IGOR he’s like the Minotaur luring you through a maze that twists and turns around seemingly impossible corners, drawing you into the thrilling unknown. ... This is Tyler’s best work to date.
May 17, 2019The trademark visceral beats, scathing lyrics and the general feeling of anger and aggression that peppered his previous albums have been replaced with slower beats and irresistible soul hooks. At first this change in tone, and pace, is jarring and you are waiting for it to kick off, but as the album progresses you get into it and dig this new Tyler.
Jun 27, 2019For the most part, Tyler has opted out of his rapping heritage, preferring pitch-altered singing vocals which will split some opinion. However, this elevated IGOR beyond the mere confines of genre, to a substantially great work of art, cementing Tyler's case as one of this decade's most essential artists.
The WireJul 11, 2019Things improve markedly when he plays to his strengths with the nuanced narrative of “A Boy Is A Gun”, but ultimately such moments [are] hard to hear over the pitiable “Puppet” and “Earfquake”, functional pop wisely rejected by Justin Bieber and Rihanna. When the narrative sags and his mind seems to wander, it just isn’t enough, no matter how stylish the trimmings. [Aug 2019, p.68]

Coming off the success of Flower Boy, it obviously would be extremely difficult to even top it. Tyler managed to do it and even made a couple surprises. The lyricism is vivid, and filled with deep commentary and a complex yet easy to follow story. The production is rich, and Tyler has done it all himself, being the first chart topping rap album to do so. This is also a very important t]project to me, as I've felt as he has once before. This is a modern classic, and it will be treated as such for generations to come.… Expand

It’s an album that’s accessible to anyone and Tyler pulls out all the stops here. This is probably his most experimental in my opinion. His lyrics take a back seat to the music in many cases and I feel it lets the listener feel the music more. When I start thinking upon the topics, that’s where I found his lyrics were useful. The album really plays like a movie. The choruses and hooks set the mood perfectly and then the music paints a picture. His lyrics are the story behind the picture and it’s a beautiful one. It’s a solid 8.5-9 album.… Expand

Beautiful sounds and well thought lyricsPrepare yourself for a twisted journey in the mind of Igor, one of the many Tyler's personalities.
Beautiful sounds and well thought lyrics are going to blow your mind and transport you into an unexplored world. This project is Great but yes... can get irritating at some small points. (not for me tho)
If you love Tyler and his mystic sounds and personalities, this album is going to feel like fresh simphony in an era where everything sounds the same.
prepare yourself for an incredible Journey!… Expand
