    An extremely promising debut.

    Turns out Odd Future benefits greatly from this duo anchoring their wild universe, as Purple Naked Ladies is one of the collective's more sensual and sensible releases to date.

    Ladies is a strong debut and, overall, it presents a pretty unique environment to get lost in.

    While the production is woozy, stop-start delirious and off kilter, the lyrics, sung by Syd in an appealing, unpolished style, are cutting.

    This slippery debut from Odd Future's Syd the Kyd and Matt Martians embarks on a journey into Twilight Zone pop, with a lovelorn story arc that transitions from giddy crushing to it's-over melancholia.

    The problem is that it's just too light on hip-hop, and too close to the other experimental work they've already done in other side projects.

Most of the songs are listenable and it's a nice start for The Internet. There are points where Syd's voice was off and on the track Visions, Coco (who was featured) was out singing Syd by a lot. It's a nice start and hopefully they can improve from here. Full Review »

    Sid tha Kid and Matt Martians come out of the Odd Future work with this new innovative ideas, but the problem comes from the first listenSid tha Kid and Matt Martians come out of the Odd Future work with this new innovative ideas, but the problem comes from the first listen because the production is too confusing and not very convincing. But not all garbage, "Cocaine" and "Fastlane" are good tracks to remember. Perhaps the result is not the best but can improve. Full Review »
