Review Summary: Unlike Asher Roth, Earl Sweatshirt definitely isn't asleep in the bread aisle.

2 of 6 thought this review was well written

Quick! Name a 16/17-year old that can spit dope rhymes over hardcore beats. Earl Sweatshirt is the only answer to this question. Earl started rapping in 2007 when he was only 13 years old, and his talent shines through over this entire album. First of all, Tyler The Creator's beats are dope like In-N-Out Burgers, and Earl's rhymes are spicier than Taco Bell Volcano Tacos. Earl's lyricism can be threatening, humorous, and bizarre all at the same time. In the first single "Earl", Earl says that he was sent to Earth to "poke Catholics in the ass with saws", and to "knock blunt ashes into their caskets and laugh it off." He has a deep love for macabre storytelling and being completely different than other people his age. During the duration of these 10 songs, the listener will be intrigued at how a 16/17 year-old can rap this cleverly and shockingly. He is comparable to early Eminem and Redman, in my opinion. Earl Sweatshirt seems like the upcoming prodigy for hip-hop, and this album is hotter than Naruto Uzumaki eating hot ramen and drinking sake. (See what I did there?) Overall, download this through Odd Future's website, listen, and enjoy!

I've always thought an ICP comparison was at least mildly appropriate for Tyler and Earl

they straddle a fine line between genius and gimmick

yeah I tend to agree with you Yeti, but I still have to be in the right mood to really appreciate a lot of it (for some reason MellowHype's always good, even though I think Bastard is the best album from OF)
