Jul 6, 2021The 17-track project finds Tyler leaning into his rap prowess and flexing more bars than on previous efforts like 2017’s critically acclaimed yet sonically lighter album Flower Boy. ... The blatant dichotomy between emotiveness and almost blind arrogance peppers nearly every track, shedding even more light on who Tyler is beneath the surface.

Jul 8, 2021A tauntingly good hip-hop album, or a rewiring of pop DNA: “Call Me if You Get Lost” has it both ways. ... Intersections of cocksureness and anxiety are this album at its best. (Fittingly, the title “Call Me if You Get Lost” reads either as a statement of generosity or a plea, depending on your lens.) Songs like the less emotionally ambiguous “Sweet / I Thought You Wanted to Dance” are generally less impactful — Tyler thrives on discord.
Jun 28, 2021A good-to-great set of songs, that would make a fire mixtape if you cut the energy-draining bores "RUNITUP" and "I THOUGHT YOU WANTED TO DANCE"? A half-finished classic album, powered by reckless abandon and thrilling energy, but too scattershot to make it over the finish line? It's both, and neither, and I don't know, man. ... Call Me If You Get Lost is too busy shooting itself in the foot and calling it coming down to earth to be complete, but following along with its fragmented course down is still an exercise worth engaging in.

His satire, flow, genius instrumentals, and messages are close to perfection. Those that are offended by any of this do not understand the point of the satire.… Expand

Tyler continues to grow as an artist, although I don't think this album doesn't see him mature as much as he did on Flower Boy or IGOR. Simply, this album feels like a (well earned) victory lap for himself, and I'm all here for it. Enjoyed the project front to back.… Expand

Tyler the Creator is a very talented artist with nine total albums. His newest release being “ CALL ME IF YOU GET LOST,” is filled with deep thought and a creative background. This album has a lot of built up aggression and well thought out lyrics going into different genres. In this album Tyler goes by, “ Tyler Bauldelaire” after the French poet Charles Pierre Baulderlaire, using Charles as a role model in a way sets Tyler up to look as if he has mastered the art.
The album “ CALL ME IF YOU GET LOST,” although the album's beat can be harsh it is very well written . One line in the song “RISE” I enjoyed was, “ I could touch the sky, I didn't see any ceilings,” this just shows that everyone has goals and can touch the sky no matter what gets in the way yet, this album did not reach its full potential,many songs have too harsh of beats and the sound overpowers the singing. In the song “MOMMA TALK,”the beat throughout the entire song is too heavy and it becomes hard to hear the actual lyrics. The beat ends up overpowering the song and diminishing the lyrics' and the focus is drowned out in the background. At the beginning of the song the beat is not as loud, but after the third or fourth line of the first verse the beat ‘drops’ and becomes overwhelming. It is apparent that the beat was meant to be more prominent in this album compared to his others which makes some particularly interested or inclined to listen to “CALL ME IF YOU GET LOST,” again.
This album includes many talented artists such as, 42 Dugg, Youngboy, Lil Wayne, Brent Faiyaz, and Lil Uzi as well as many others. One song called, “HOTWIND BLOWS” features Lil Wayne. This specific song has a very “hypnotic” tune, it has slow but rushed instrumentals with soft flute and drums. Lil Wayne's voice is more calming than Tylers in this song and I feel that it helps out the whole album. Lil Wayne allows for a break per say, whereas the rest of the album can be very eccentric. Lil Wayne himself is a very talented artist and the collaboration between himself and Tylers has resulted in an amazing outcome. Although this song is more enjoyable than the others, the beat is still a very prominent issue. At the beginning it is a very soft and slow relaxing beat. As the song continues the beat becomes louder and distracting as many other noises are added in with the background. It diverts attention from the lyrics to the background music. There are “whoosh” noises and the sound of flutes come in at some point. Although it isn't as loud and prominent as it is in these other songs it is still distracting.… Expand
