I listened to this album the week it came out and couldn’t really get into it. Then I was at a Noname concert and “Doves in the Wind” came on while I was waiting for Noname to start and I really vibed with it. So I went back and tried the album again and it really bumped. I love TDE and SZA is a great addition to the crew.
Great, fun pop punk that squeaked into 2017 with just a bit of flare to make it stand out amongst the masses. I enjoyed this album every time I threw it on, no matter the circumstance.
Tyler made QUITE the transition from screaming the f word and being quite homophobic to becoming for all intensive purposes a super positive, happy rapper. It’s nice to see him grow and nice to see the younger generation being influenced in a nice happy way as opposed to the “burn shit, kill people, fuck school” mentality of Odd Future’s younger days.
I have a bad habit of sometimes of getting stagnant with my listening and only checking out rap and emo music and Ibeyi was a welcome change to my normal listening. I won’t try and genretize this album so as not to insult the musicianship needed to create such an eclectic project, but the dance elements as well as the pop and R&B elements made it fun and easy to listen to, allowing myself to break up the monotony of my normal listening.
