    A very good overall album, especially considering there are 18 songs and only about 3 to 4 songs you'd want to skip. Odd Future's rapping skills have improved dramatically. Its a very diverse album, from the first song being sort of a rap battle with Hodgy Beats and Domo Genesis with a nice beat, to songs like "White" and "Analog 2" that break up the pace.

Each members rapping is way beyond anything they've put out before, and the beats on these tracks are crazy good. A definite buy if you are an Odd Future fan, and definitely one you should take a look at if you are a hip hop fan in general. Expand

    Are you a fan of OFWGKTA? Then prepare to be impressed. Tyler and the gang have become much more musically proficient, as their beats sound a lot more thought out and their lyrics still as slick and clever as ever. Tyler sure seems to have something going on with Jerry Sandusky in this album ;). Highlights of the album are: NY (Ned Flander), 50, Snow White, Rella, P, Oldie.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Odd Future's new tape isn't exactly the best representation of the skill the collective has. It's a mixture of sounds that are either grand and trash. To begin with, I think Hodgy Beats makes a really great impression on this tape. He just has a dope and likable flow. He proves that on "Lean", "P", and "Snow White." The first track after the intro however, is ruined by some truly annoying production. Hodgy and Domo spit over some god awful synth-like sound on that one. Thankfully, "NY" is dope enough to keep listening. "Forest Green" has a nice beat but Mike G is really just a mediocre rapper. Frank is kind of disappointing in this tape, singing lines that are out of place and never really singing anything noteworthy. Syd delivers some ODD trash, but still trash. The tape has some plain and dull drums sometimes like on "Analog 2." Yet sometimes, it's dope as **** like "Rella." So the production is really as mixed as the rappers in OF. You can pretty much blame Left Brain for the on-off production. Domo does his thing which is surprisingly pretty good throughout. The most disappointing track is probably the Tyler-Taco-Jasper track. Listen to "Tina" from Bastard, now listen to "We Got Bitches." Can you actually say you enjoy WGB as much as Tina? I mean, I know Taco and Jasper aren't rappers but regardless, there is no reason Odd Future should sound anything like a waka ****in flocka flame wannabe. It's like they ACTUALLY tried to be good on that track. Where's the humor? That brings me to Tyler. Tyler spat some pretty decent lines,sometimes in a comedic way, although nothing anywhere close to what he would rap if he was alone in a dark room. That's what sucks about Tyler, his complexity is absent once he has company. However, that's why Earl is such an outstanding rapper. Earl, regardless of how sub-par some of his friends are rapping, continues to do his high-vocabulary-dope-as-**** lyricism he had before leaving to Somalia. It's a shame he only showed up in "Oldie." In the end, the tape never really sounds unified. It sounds like Hodgy, Tyler and Domo just got in a room to record...and the rest of the members added what they could to that. I mean, Mike G's only track was recycled from an earlier tape for Satan's sake. So in all honesty, if you want to hear something that proves the talent of Odd Future...Go listen to "Radical." Expand

    Really good record. There are a lot of songs on this album but some aren't that good. It's pretty diverse and the production is really good. "Oldie" was one of my faves from this album.

    Overall, Odd Future's shock value rap style comes across less intense on this project. [#252, p.89]

    OFWGKTA are talented, if not as ground-breaking as they think. [Jun 2012, p.85]

    Here the stylistic plurality advances beyond likable ADHD-antics to the point where it no longer leaves the listening value unscathed.
