Wow. This caught me by surprise. Tyler has definitely gotten better over time, along with evolving musically. Flower Boy is a departure from his notoriously gruesome earlier albums and is definitely his happiest album, and also his best album. It seamlessly transitions between being happy sounding with a happy theme, and happy sounding with a deep theme. This is an album that can both be listened to as background music, and can be listened to closely. This album also had a surprisingly good Jaden Smith feature on "Pothole". Even though I'm not a big fan of Jaden's music, he fit in perfectly on that song.

FAVORITE SONGS:

BOREDOM, I AIN'T GOT TIME, 911 / MR. LONELY, WHERE THIS FLOWER BLOOMS, POTHOLE

From Kurtco
Ok, this album is not perfect ... Tyler is not as explosive as before, everything is too clean, he did not reap against the company. In fact this album is not a real rap album, it's a kind of mix of all kinds of music: hip-hop, pop, r&b, electro, jazz, trap and even Andalusian music. Yet the whole album seems homogeneous. In reality, this album is the culmination of a movement, a vision of the music of the 2010's. In fact, today, many artists are inspired or copy old artists and can not find again new sounds. Tyler, in "Flower Boy", mixed old sounds with the sounds he had created earlier. What makes "Flower Boy" an album perfectly produced. This also underlines the artist's desire to present a purified opus where the listener can focus more on the fluidity of the feelings that animate its author. Sincerely, I think that "Flower Boy" is one of the best rap pop album of the decade. "Flower Boy" is a stroll through an almost hallucinatory world oscillating between reality and fantasy, the founder of Odd Future releases tension by creating a real universe.

I do love his voice but I'm not enamoured on the arrangement of all the vocals on all the parts. He definitely has a unique style of delivery. There is a really interesting conversation/theme between beauty, nature and sorta the more horror/darker parts. The variety is definitely welcome, not all the songs just succumb to the typical pop-y simple structures. What's interesting to me is, thematically, it deals with a lot of super typical human emotions and the whole idea of stepping back and realising the modern world we live in, which within itself is not unique, but yet it is so different to other modern hiphop records like Because the Internet. This album has quite a bit more nuance and sophistication to the sound, and definitely gels with me better personally than Because the Internet or Blonde. This is one of the best albums of the 2010s for me. Definitely go listen to the NPR Tiny Desk concert!

Favourite recent album I've listened to and I regret putting it off for so long, I love the whole concept of this album, Rex Orange County's features really make it what it is and it's probably the best thing that came out of 2017

Favourite tracks: Foreword, I Ain't Got Time!, Glitter

Great change in direction for Tyler. He has shown flashes of this in the past but now he seems that he is finally putting it all together. There are some surprisingly pleasant vocals from Tyler himself and I think Rex Orange County's appearances go a long way to making this album what it is.

When thinking of best ever albums of all time, I'd never think that something new could come along to breach my top 20, let alone my top 10,but this album does just that being my 4th favorite of all time.I have such a soft spot for throwback 80's style synths, and this album just has an astetic that not only uses those, but all sorts of instrumentation that's just gorgeous. But of course, this is still a rap record, so that isn't the main attraction (even if it is my favorite part of it) but the bars Tyler lays down are so personal and endearing that I just sympathies with this man who feels like even with tons of people, he'll always be lonely. Just a great listen the whole way through, and for you hard core Tyler fans, don't worry, he's still got a couple of bangers on here.

With one album, Tyler completely changed the world's perception of who he is as an artist and as an individual. To do so after his vast collection of offensive material is no easy feat. How did he do this? He dropped an incredibly personal, vulnerable, artistic, powerful, entertaining and unique masterpiece.

Flower Boy is a dive into the parts of Tyler's soul never-before-seen. Poetically, he reveals the darkest parts of his struggles with mental illness, sexuality, friendships, loneliness, identity, and more. Not only do we get a first-hand view of Tyler's internal conflicts, he challenges the listener to do the same to themselves. When I listen to Flower Boy, I can't help but explore my own soul and how I react to my own struggles and identity crises. Tyler puts an emphasis on feeling lonely despite having everything he ever wanted. Even when he's around his friends he still desires a stronger intimacy with them. There's truly nothing more important in life than intimate relationships, and Tyler recognizes and explores that theme.

From JulianR
I want to really like this album, as I have enjoyed some of his earlier projects and like the work of OF members Swatshirt and Ocean, but this one hasn’t grabbed me so far. It’s pretty good, but nothing really stands out to me so far. I will have to give it a few more listens to be sure though.

75/100 (Above Average)
