    On ‘TYRON’, Slowthai roars.

    On TYRON, slowthai doesn’t make grand statements or platitudes like a politician. He simply offers his own story of perseverance, hand extended and Mona Lisa smile brimming.

    On TYRON, slowthai sounds more together and present than ever.

    TYRON feels like a necessary release for the controversial rapper. Even though he’s placed himself as the centre of attention this time around, there is still plenty of societal commentary to be gleaned from his autobiographical missives – and it’s no less urgent or energising.

    TYRON is an exciting follow-up project whose bifurcated structure encapsulates the duality of slowthai’s effervescent rap persona and the evolving interiority of Tyron Frampton.

    The result is both illuminating and one-dimensional in equal measure. ... Despite a handful of missed landings, Tyron still admirably inspires the kind of mosh-pit energy that feels nearly romantic in an era of closed venues and social distancing.

    For all of their obvious quality and intricate attention to detail, there is no escaping the fact that this album feels clumsy and disjointed. It isn’t an abject failure but flirts with this possibility on too many occasions for it to be even mentioned in the same breath as slowthai’s previous studio effort.

I think he perfectlyBeen waiting a while for this , I was interested in how slowthai would top his debut and what themes he would discuss . I think he perfectly continued on , with tyron being more about him and his character . Not only is it a very enjoyable listen but it's very well structured and goes deeper in who slowthai is. Expand

I was a huge fan of the two disc style, the second half being the better one. 'i tried', 'nhs' and 'feel away' were some standouts as well as 'VEX' in the first half. I think he's only going to get better as he progresses, I also love his political commentary to go along with his eye for good music. Expand

    Great Album, I have never listened to Slowthai before this project and I was very pleasantly surprised. The first half was fine, kindaGreat Album, I have never listened to Slowthai before this project and I was very pleasantly surprised. The first half was fine, kinda experimental British rap but It was nothing compared to the second half. The second half blew me away with how emotional and creative it got with great flows amazing beats and a nostalgic feel. The project overall really helped me understand what someone with ADHD may experience and I think that's a great thing to get out of a project. The first half however lacked some aspects that prevent this album from being as good as it could be. Expand
