Flower Boy is a quintessential modern hip-hop album with jazz and soul influences. Tyler's lyrics explore concepts such as identity, loneliness, his new wealthy lifestyle, and most prominently, cars. The laid-back atmosphere of most of the record provides an easy listen to that especially sounds great in the spring/summertime but is still enjoyable year-round. The features of the project are carefully selected and done with Kali Uchis and Rex Orange County giving great performances on songs like See You Again and Boredom. the first ten tracks are complete bliss culminating with 911/Mr. Lonely, is a beautiful song and highlight of the album that has an extremely relatable and grounded message about loneliness.
The last few songs including November and the instrumental Enjoy Right Now, Today are some of the weaker pieces on a phenomenal record but the end also has songs like Droppin' Seeds with an impressive Lil Wayne verse and Glitter a sweet song about one-sided love. Other highlights include A$AP Rocky on Who Dat Boy and Garden Shed, establishing Tyler's bisexuality. Overall, Flower Boy is an enjoyable record and one of the most fun albums in modern hip-hop.
