Yes, Tyler The Creator has done it yet again and released another legendary album: “CALL ME IF YOU GET LOST”. Since this has been the first album to be released in over two years by Tyler, it is safe to say that the media has gone crazy over this one, especially due to its features of popular artists including Lil Wayne, Lil Uzi Vert, and Pharrell Williams. I found this album to fit more of a chiller vibe when compared to his previous albums, which is arguably what the world needs given the multitude of stressful events it has endured over the past year with the pandemic.
The opening track “SIR BAUDELAIRE” in particular was a perfect opener to set the “chill” mood, given the slowed, reverbed, and almost psychedelic sounding beat. Although, I was taken by surprise with the second track “CORSO” with its aggressive fast-paced beat that reminisces many of Tyler’s earlier tracks. I believe that it is also important to note how Tyler explains his rise to fame in this track in particular but also decides to hint at the downsides of his stardom when he adds that he’s “bout to spend millions just to fill voids up”. As the album continues, there are added “tracks” that are only about a minute long, which is the perfect touch to keep the listener’s attention. Overall, I would consider this to be not only one of Tyler the Creator’s most advanced albums but also one of his most emotional albums considering some of the darker lyrics. It is unbelievable to see how Tyler has grown as an artist over the past few years, and I think that I can speak for almost everyone when I say that the world eagerly awaits another release by him.
