    Honestly, it was hit-and-miss. A lot lighter than Goblin and it certainly showed Tyler's maturation as an artist and it was also, in my mind, a better album than Goblin. The production was solid throughout, but the album's a little too long, in terms of there being quite a few "filler" tracks. The best tracks are not all that great, either, but they at least have replay value. The amountHonestly, it was hit-and-miss.

    If Wolf were a narrative, it would be a classic. Just like Goblin, Wolf continues the story of Wolf Haley, Sam and Salem. But because it's so relevant to Goblin, I felt like I was listening to Goblin all over again. I do however praise the production of the album and how creative it was. The album is best described as a rollercoaster experience, it has it's highs and lows but enough lowsIf Wolf were a narrative, it would be a classic.

    It's complex, conflicted, and bipolar. Paranoid, even. Most of all, it reveals the harmless and empathetic character behind Tyler, the Creator's complicated persona.

    He just keeps getting better at writhing around in this narrow space of homage and usually lands somewhere just between endearing and brilliant. [May 2013, p.67]

    Wolf’s production features a more textured and subtle sound than we’ve ever heard before.
