A Tyler album that isn't a Tyler album

You’re doing yourself a disservice if all you can get out of this album is “edgy 17 year old”

Quite an underrated project. Nowhere near Tyler's best, but it's still pretty good.

FAV: Odd Toddlers, Pigs Fly, Slow It Down, AssMilk, VCR/Wheels,

LEAST FAV: Parade

i got bored very quickly on this tape. the production was interesting, tyler's lyrics were witty at times, but the speed of the album seemed much too slow, and i didnt think that tylers voice matched the beats all too well. the project is very impressive considering it was wholly self made by tyler when he was 17, but judging it as a piece of music shows the flaws in it. great start to his discography though.
fav tracks: french!

Tyler's signature eerie sound and abrasive lyrics just bore me at this point. On his debut, The production barely changes up, and most of what's being said here just makes me cringe. It also moves slow af.
This definitely sounded better at 16.

FAV: Bastard, Seven, Odd Toddlers, Blow, VCR/Wheels, Session, Sarah & Inglorious

LEAST: Tina
