    An extremely promising debut.

    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.

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

    Like many spinoffs from the Odd Future machine, it's a small piece of a larger puzzle, useful for obsessives concerned with keeping their catalogs up to date.

    This sprawling effort could sorely use some tightening up.

    Without that blessed cohesion that is the groove, Purple Naked Ladies is an alternately jaggy and listless dream, rather than the narcotic romp it is meant to be.
  7. 30
    When you boil it down, Purple Naked Ladies' biggest fault is that it's generic.

    I kinda enjoyed this album. 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. Expand

    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 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. Expand

    The Internet put out a decent debut some songs were listening to but others weren't. Syd's singing is ok she has some goods songs like Cocaine, Fastlane & she knows Expand
