Pitchfork

With Christmas as his backdrop, he gets to really unleash the chords without consequence. He tinkers with sounds in this low-stakes arena with all the excitement of a kid tearing through wrapping paper Christmas morning.

Tyler, the Creator leaves an awkward and weakly assembled Christmas EP under the tree.

I mean, it's bad but you can see he didn't even take it seriously. Why are people saying he's selling out??? It's a ten minute Christmas EP based on the fucking Grinch! Did you expect a masterpiece?

This would be more fun if Tyler could say "fuck"

Uh... this is basically a set of awful Flower Boy B Sides.

But like in sellout form... not saying it is a sellout... cause it feels less like a sellout than most artists making projects like this. However, it is insanely awkward front to back. on the second half, there is some sweet jazz. I think it is okay... but man could it have been better.

Best: Big Bag, When Gloves Come Off
Worst: Hot Chocolate

I'm scared that Tyler's next project will follow the sound of flower boy. Flower boy is amazing, but i want Tyler to stay creative. This doesn't sound like he's changing anything up. It's like a "Mediocre Mini Flower Boy Christmas Edition EP"

I don't see the hate. People are taking this throwaway ep to seriously. Tyler is not selling out.
