My opinion on IGOR, I believe that Tyler showcases a more polished iteration of the hazy pop he’s been perfecting for years. Even though some might be disappointed that he’s becoming more of a singer than a rapper; I'm not, this project should encourage more artists to disavow labels and relish in taking risks.

My opinion on IGOR, I believe that Tyler showcases a more polished iteration of the hazy pop he’s been perfecting for years. Even though some might be disappointed that he’s becoming more of a singer than a rapper; I'm not, this project should encourage more artists to disavow labels and relish in taking risks. My favorite song of the album is “EARFQUAKE”, it showcases a wide range of vocals from Tyler and also features Playboi Carti. Carti has not released music since 2018, so when fans like me heard a newer version of him we instantly considered this song a favorite. Tyler’s part on this song is melodically sung and is the “catchy” part of the song. I would not recommend this album to someone who is new to rap because of at the abstract beats, it simply is too much to handle for someone who doesn’t listen to rap in the first place. however, if someone has been listening to rap for a while and wants to listen to a more complex album, I would definitely recommend IGOR. Final rating: 3.5/5

IGOR is the fifth studio album by American rapper Tyler, The Creator released on May 17, 2019. You can find it off of Freegal. I would rate it 5/5. IGOR is based off of Igor - the vibrant fictional character Tyler created and portrays in his animated concerts. The album is immaculately arranged by Tyler – each song blends into the next which gives listeners a flawless auditory experience. IGOR is experimentally different than Tyler’s previous albums, but he does not disappoint. In fact, melodic runs and harmonies accompanied by Tyler’s superb bars make this undoubtably one of his best albums. The hit single “EARFQUAKE” featuring the trendy verse by Playboi Carti was a breakthrough hit that allowed Tyler to enjoy worldwide success and even secured him a Grammy! There is absolutely nothing I would change about this extraordinary album and I hope to see other artists take this experimental approach to their albums as it worked out so well for Tyler. Listeners that enjoy alternative hip hop and artists such as Frank Ocean and Earl Sweatshirt would love IGOR. It’s the type of album you can listen to by yourself but also when driving or hanging out with friends. In my opinion, IGOR is the best album of 2019 and I hope to see more like it in the future @LuLuD of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

Igor is Tyler, The Creator's 2019 album and also won the Rap Album of the Year at the 2020 Grammys. This album is not your typical rap album as it features very little rapping with the only real ‘rap’ songs being “What’s Good” and "New Magic Wand". In this album Tyler experiments with his vocals and instrumental in turn creating sounds we have never heard before. The album tells an interesting love story as it travels through breakup and what comes after. The album is very melo and includes many slower tracks but not to the point where it becomes boring. Overall I would recommend this to all music fans and give it five out of five stars.
