    Growth since his previous effort is obvious, both for the good (writing skills) and an arguable definition of bad (Penthouse Forum might even balk at some of the aggressive sex talk here).

    To Careless World's credit, at its worst it's an album that's really hard to feel any sort of way about. But it's also hard to completely ignore how well made it is.

    Tyga isn't a gifted lyricist, but he has a few key things going in his favor: a workmanlike ability to ride a beat, a solid singing voice, and a great ear for melody.

    Attempts to keep one foot in the streets and another in the mainstream, and largely succeeds. [May 2012, p.102]

    Tyga's strength isn't in introspection, but curation.

    As a whole, though, Careless World is simply mediocre.

    [Tyga] flings just about everything at the wall here. [9 Mar 2012, p.80]

    The result is a slick, accessible rap record that's about nine songs too long.

    Even though he remains a cipher, his surroundings are lush.

    This is a clear and definitive evolutionary improvement from his solo debut on "No Introduction," which is all a listener or review could have really asked for.

    It's serious when necessary, occasionally triumphant, and impressive enough that you have to consider him a force to be reckoned with.

    Even with so many features, Tyga rarely lets the album get away from him, remaining in the driver's seat even when next to young stars and legends.

    Beyond his mic skills, King also hints at Tyga's more seriously minded side, a side that surfaces again and again throughout the album.

    I am baffled and at the same time fascinated at the atrocity of this album. I have not heard such... utter nonsense since toot it and boot it and this somehow tops it. I am unsure if I should be handing it to a scientist to examine or a priest to exorcise. Rack City has to be among the worst songs to ever be released. It's the same three words over and over again and not catchy at all. Faded should also be in the rank of the worst because it's practically the same thing. I would not wish these horrors on my worst enemies. Be afraid people. BE VERY VERY AFRAID. Full Review »

    Great album still not better than No introduction. His lyrics hasn't changed that much. His mixtapes are really good and he should of used his mixtape material on Careless world. Overall careless world is a great album. but for future albums he should focus more on the lyrics and less on the beats and Features Full Review »

    Tyga has improved greatly from No Introduction but still isn't great lyrically and the production is very mediocre. Songs like Rack City and Far Away are still too poppy to make him a good lyricist. Also adding features like Nas only outshines his work. Full Review »
