Just like his official debut album, Goblin, Tyler, the Creator's sophomore effort doubles as a production showcase, with all tracks helmed by the rapper/producer save one guest appearance from Tyler's Odd Future cohort Left Brain. What's different is the subject matter, as Tyler is less interested in "talking about rape and cutting bodies up" and more interested in "making weird hippie music for people to get high to." Expect Goblin's fictional therapist Dr. TC to return as well.
Rolling Stone (p.69) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]here's plenty to admire on WOLF particularly in Tyler's self-produced beats, where jazzy chords rub up against fractured noise."
CMJ - "More often than not Tyler also turns the camera on himself, chronicling his own insecurities, his fears and his inner turmoil."
