About this deal

A pity for the mix on "Puppet" though, I guess Kanye's vocals will never fully be heard, but Tyler's art cover similar to the aesthetics of Bowie is heard loud and clear now after "Flower Boy", as much as hip-hop would love to keep Tyler, "Igor" shows genre expansion doesn't always have to be a bad thing, as long as it's genuine.

Igor (album) - Wikipedia

Following the release of Flower Boy (2017), the album was primarily recorded in California, with recording sessions also being held in Lake Como, Italy, and Atlanta between 2017 and 2019. At first everything sounded fine, and then through certain songs, the vocals seem to be drowned out by the instrumentals, which wasn’t really there in the digital version.Eventually our protagonist comes to the realization of being used and accepting that his love slipped away in "Gone, Gone / Thank You". The second half where twinkly synths feel as though they are climbing is so cool, and snaps are so random and interesting. The weird and hazy, yet incredibly boppy and fun synths so perfectly blend with the perfect bass tone and lines. Sonorities are tauter and brighter in Paris, the string sound less opulent and the brass tight and gleaming, all of which gives a sense of aeration of texture. Igor's Theme" incorporates uncredited elements of "Attention", performed by Head West; and "Scatin' ", performed by Dâm-Funk.

On June 3, 2019, Tyler announced his forthcoming tour for the album, which was supported by Jaden Smith, Blood Orange, and GoldLink. The rest of this disc contains an interview, in English, between the conductor and Martin Bookspan conducted in 1957 which has been released before. All I ask is that you listen to the album completely through multiple times (ideally at least five to ten times if you can) before writing your review.The Prague is warmly accomplished too but there’s a rather greater sense of sonic and interpretative personalisation in the Paris Haffner. Igor is Tyler, the Creator's fifth studio album release on a record label; however, Tyler has referred to the project as his sixth album, considering his debut mixtape Bastard as an album. I still agree with nearly everything in my original review, except there I downplayed the sound quality.

TLOP-ing, for those who don’t know, is the act of making significant changes, such as changing lyrics, noticeably remixing, and/or adding and subtracting songs on an album already released to the public. No skipping, only two slight bumps at the very end of "Earfquake", but other than that a flawless record. I’ve listened to this album so many times, I know it note for note, lyric for lyric, I’m completely and utterly convinced by its story and emotional depth, and the production is so beautiful and layered, so seemingly simplistic and yet so busy. The starting point of the four paradigmatic works featured on the double album is the music of Johann Sebastian Bach.These recordings, as previously noted – and I’ve only noted some of those that have been reviewed on this site – have appeared before on CD. Plus it has a lyrics booklet, which is uncommon on albums from hip-hop artists (if Tyler is even that anymore).

Even if we completely ignore every perfect vocal performance, or any story or conceptual additions to this album it would still likely be in my top 10 of all time. In a mixed review, The Guardian 's Dean Van Nguyen stated: "It's no bad thing that Igor downplays Tyler's indomitable personality – but the writing and execution do not quite replace what has been lost. It was a widespread critical success, being named among the best albums of 2019 in many publications' year-end lists, and it won Best Rap Album at the 2020 Grammy Awards, becoming Tyler's first Grammy win. Ronald Stevenson (1928–2015), was a Scottish composer for whom the DSCH motif provided the basis for a spectacular survey of all manner of pianistic and stylistic possibilities over a span of more than three hundred variations. No 34 sports a plushly affectionate slow movement and Markevitch interpolates the Minuet from K409, probably on the precedent of the suggestion in the third revision of the Köchel catalogue that it was intended for the work, for which there seems no tangible evidence.

The song cuts off seemingly out of nowhere, at a depressing lull in mood, where Igor ceases to speak at all. This song even includes a MASSIVE beat switch, as the song descends into an 808 filled wall of noise as Igor describes psychotic visions, near death experiences, and seeing the light, as the beat falls away to reveal a spaced out piano outro.
