redleafgoldteeth 100 Word Review: Earl Sweatshirt – I Don’t Like Shit, I Don’t Go Outside
IDLSIDGO shows us that Earl has driven himself away from the MF DOOM-esque rhymes you could hear in Doris. You can still hear the influence in the music, but it feels as though he has come into his own when spitting his bars. Every track on this album is produced by Earl (some with the help of Left Brain). The mixing to some may seem atrocious, in matter of fact sometimes it is, like on “Grown Ups” with Da$h, where it was hard to tell if it was Earl or Da$h rapping because of the clashing frequencies. However, for most tracks, this unique choice in mixing leaves the songs with a more organic lo-fi feel. Everything about this album is cohesive.
Standout Tracks: Mantra, Grief, DNA, Wool
Overall, the thematic material, the song transitions, and the features all flow together without any big surprises. This type togetherness makes the album feel as though it’s just one big song rather than multiple unrelated pieces. Definitely worth the listen!
