EDITORS’ NOTES

Tyler’s willful ignorance of hip-hop's rules makes Goblin exciting. His productions reach outside hip-hop's realm to touch the belching industrial designs of Throbbing Gristle and the darkly seductive jazz of Roy Ayers. The lyrics are stream-of-consciousness yet highly crafted. The scenery here is ugly, beautiful, and sometimes terrifying—sometimes all at once. There are few albums that allow as much access to a young artist’s emotional and artistic landscape.
