93% Consequence of Sound With each record, Tyler has become more focused, honing his production skills and discovering that the art of crafting albums is more rewarding than shock value and banger clout.
90% Soundblab Alongside his Odd Future brothers like Ocean and Earl Sweatshirt, Tyler’s not content with just doing the same album over and over again, and now that IGOR is out in the world to be processed, it’s possibly his boldest statement to date.
80% New Musical Express While the lyrical content of ‘IGOR’ may not prompt as much discussion as its predecessor (‘Flower Boy’ contained a number of references to Tyler’s sexuality), Tyler still manages to hold our attention even while banging a very familiar thematic drum.
80% DIY Magazine Over the course of 12 tracks, we dance around funk, R&B and rap, recalling the spirit of Outkast or old bandmate Frank Ocean in the playfulness of his samples, meandering by way of small snippets of gospel vocal or sudden bass drop.
80% Music OMH So it seems somewhat poetic that, as we enter the dying days of May’s premiership, Tyler is allowed back into the country to promote his fifth solo album, Igor.
80% Under the Radar Magazine But where Flower Boy sought much help from Tyler's myriad contemporaries (Frank Ocean, A$AP Rocky, Lil Wayne, and Jaden Smith, to name a few), his likely final statement of the decade, IGOR, sees a singular vision in which Tyler takes full control of his craft.  While Flower Boy served as a "coming of age" record, IGOR shows a matured, considered approach during a difficult time in Tyler's life, a heartbreak.
74% Paste Magazine Relying on heavy, ominous low synth tones and complex percussion—a combination that’s featured prominently throughout the album—the mainly instrumental song is a bit of a change up from his past work, essentially combining the best aspects of Cherry Bomb with the emotionality and relative absence of Tyler’s rapping presence on Flower Boy to create a hangover record of sorts from the flamboyance of his last record.
67% Nöjesguiden Han har också varit tydlig på sociala medier med att Igor inte kommer att likna något av hans tidigare album.
60% The Guardian Yet here we are, over a decade since The Odd Future Tape, and the release of a Tyler, the Creator album is still an event.
