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.

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.

One of the most creative albums that hip-hop has seen in its recent explosion of maximalism and heavy fusion with jazz and soul. Tyler's lyrics are poignant and honest. We are finally seeing a true new side of him and he's not only very relatable, but very entertaining. This is one of the greatest albums of the decade - don't miss it.

Hands down the best surprise of 2017. Previously I had thought of Tyler as someone who was a little too reliant on shock value (the original title of the album came across as being chosen purely to provoke some kind of reaction). However, this mature and articulate album, as fresh as the blooming flowers he sings of, has completely transformed my opinion of him.

As a hip-hop fan, I am more attentive to beats over lyrics which means that this album is perfect for me - the rich instrumentation seen on tracks like “See You Again” perfectly conveys his sentiments, which is a testament to his skills as a producer.

At certain points, Tyler and his fellow creators come across as being slightly saccharine, case and point “Glitter”, however this is compensated by some of the relatively grandiose tracks on the record, i.e. “Garden Shed” and “911 / Mr Lonely”.

Overall, this record left a remarkable impression on me thanks to not only its production but equally to Tyler’s transparency as far as love and relationships are concerned. Can’t wait to hear what comes next.

Great album. It's my favourite Tyler The Creator album. It's definitely better than 'Cherry Bomb'.

My favourite album of 2017, and although I started listening to it at the end of that year, it was definitely one of the albums I listened the most, and I still can't stop. Its so beautiful, creative and delicately crafted, with incredible songs and an unique style from Tyler. There are a lot of strong emotions portrayed in these songs, with some being more intimate than others, with excellent songs like Boredom, 911, Who Dat Boy or Foreword and just incredibly beautiful tracks like See You Again and Garden Shed.

Masterpiece
