Tyler the Creator – Cherry Bomb

cherry bombBefore you read the rest of this review I’d like you to do me a favor. Somehow get access to the song “Deathcamp”, put it on whatever mobile musical device you use, walk anywhere with the volume up, and try not to pretend you’re walking away from an explosion.

Tyler the Creator’s previous album, Wolf, features more than one track that I would consider to be among my favorite hip hop songs of all time. It was constantly swinging back and forth between deeply personal tracks, such as “48” and “Answer,” to wildly angry and violent tracks, like “Pigs” and “Thrashwang.” All of the songs on Wolf were fantastic in their own right, but never could perfectly meld together. Cohesively, it didn’t work as well as when listened to full than it did when listening to a couple of songs at a time. Regardless, I absolutely loved it.

When you play the first track to Tyler the Creator’s newest album, Cherry Bomb, you are immediately confronted by a track that sets the tone for the rest of the album. The distorted pounding beat of “Deathcamp” coupled with Tyler’s boastful, furious lyrics sets the scene for everything else that is to come.
