TYLER, THE CREATOR / Wolf [2013]

Odd Future leader, Tyler, The Creator releases his third solo album, 2013's Wolf that continues his knack for being belligerently offensive.
Musically, Wolf is a huge step up from his previous albums.  Before, he had a dirty, fuzzy jazz sound that didn't quite work and sounded nothing but sloppy.  He's refined it now and while it still sounds distorted and dirty, it pieces together quite nicely.  It was the lyrics that had me going back multiple times before I rated the album.  Tyler's delivery isn't particularly great and his lyrics are bluntly offensive but never really seems to make a point or have a motive, unlike someone like Eminem who appears to be coming from somewhere when he spits out vulgarities.
