Album is great, but the average AP user sees it as the holy grail of hip-hop, which it is far from being.

As far as pure rapping goes, Earl > Tyler > Hodgy > Others.

As far as overall talent/entertainment/swag goes, Tyler > Frank Ocean > Earl > Hodgy

i would say overall it's earl > tyler > frank > hodgy if we're just talking about those 4 but that's just me

It means you clearly haven't done your homework.

What Tyler tracks have you heard? They can range from completely awful (filler like Bitch Suck Dick, although it's tongue in cheek) to great (Bastard, Yonkers, Splatter), and the great ones definitely outnumber the shitty ones. The names aren't clownish for the most part. Tyler, the Creator is a pretty cool moniker, Earl Sweatshirt sounds a little weird but isn't totally bizarre, Hodgy Beats, Mike G, Left Brain and Domogenesis sound like standard stage names in hip-hop... Not sure where you're coming from there. Taco and Jasper the Dolphin are the only out-of-left-field ones and they're not the main attraction of OFWGKTA at all.

If you think their beats and flow as a whole are no good, well, this track oughta put that notion to shame: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YhycjXvFDy8

Don't judge Odd Future on Tyler alone. Earl and Hodgy rap circles around him. Frank Ocean is the best R&B singer I've heard in a loooong time.

I'm a fuckin' walkin' paradox, no I'm not
Threesomes with a fuckin' triceratops, Reptar
Rappin' as I'm mockin' deaf rock stars
Wearin' synthetic wigs made of Anwar's dreadlocks
Bedrock, harder than a muthafuckin' Flintstone
Makin' crack rocks outta pissy ***** fishbones
This ***** Jasper tryna get grown
About 5'7" of his bitches in my bedroom
Swallow the cinnamon, I'mma scribble this sinnin' shit
While Syd is tellin' me that she's been gettin' intimate with men
(Syd, shut the fuck up) Here's the number to my therapist
(Shit) Tell him all your problems, he's fuckin' awesome with listenin'

Might be the worst nonsense I've ever heard delivered over an incredibly boring and bizarre beat in a 'I sound like Aesop rock would if he rapped really slow about retarded stuff that doesn't make sense' kind of voice.

Pussy ***** fishbones?!?! lolwut?

And before anyone says I hate hip hop I don't. I just like when the lyrics are written like poetry in the english language. Not whatever the hell that shit is.

Also, I listened to this (from the album in question)

Craptastic also.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jQaE7q6NY8s <---------- this right here is what I consider good hip hop.

I'm pretty sure the original is better, "Hell", "Loco", and "Chordaroy" were too solid of songs to leave out.

AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA... except no

Slang, dialect, all that stuff is cool, but just rap about something that makes sense please.
Cunninlynguists, cyne, a tribe called quest, jedi mind tricks, people under the stairs, nas, mos def, common, jurrasic 5, grieves -- all quality hip hop.

And what is 'white people language'? There's english and there's english. White people can sound just as retarded as tyler the creator and if they did it on CD form I wouldn't listen either.

There are a million punk songs out there with some lyrics that don't make any sense, and they're still great punk songs.

While Goblin is hit and miss, I think it has a lot more substance than Blackenedwhite. Hodgy's verses on Goblin all have more content than anything he says on this album. Not to say it's not a fun album to listen to, but I just don't think I'll come back to this one that much. I like pure rap boasting to an extent, but it does nothing for me like Tyler who, while also nonsensical at times, can tell a dark story very well that takes you into the mind of an insane person. But really, the albums can't be compared. One is for fun, the other isn't. It'd be like comparing Nostalgia/Ultra to Goblin. Just because they're in Odd Future doesn't mean they have to be stacked against each other. All have their own qualities.

MF DOOM has abstract lyrics that "don't make sense" and is a huge influence(so is Madlib) on Odd Future sooooo yeah.

this. while, MBDTF was pretty dope, people need to shut up on rap if they haven't listned to albums like Nas' "Illmatic", Biggie's "Ready To Die", Big L's "Lifestylez...", or anything KRS-one or A Tribe Called Quest.

having said that, I'm not a big OF fan but out of the bunch I liked this record the most.

Why? Why should they shut up?

I hate this musical superiority complex. "I've indoctrinated myself into the history of hip-hop, so my opinion means more than yours. In fact, don't even form yours because nobody (re: I) don't want to hear it."

Shut the fuck up, seriously. I love all of the artists and albums you mentioned, but if I had never heard of them? I'm still allowed to critique Odd Future, and I don't need to shut up on rap.
