GONE, GONE / THANK YOU
To be honest, I love all of the songs on IGOR in their own way.
However, one song that stuck out to me on his album is “GONE, GONE / THANK YOU,” Tyler has done this on previous albums where the tenth song of his albums are “double songs.”
This is my favorite song because of the overall nostalgic and happy feel of the song, the light guitar in the background as well as Tyler’s voice in the first part.
I enjoy the second part of the song, “THANK YOU” which is a more sad-sounding song which balances out with “GONE, GONE.”
While all of his albums are good in their own way, Tyler´s IGOR album is the best in my opinion.
Throughout his album, Tyler tells a story through his songs about an alter ego, Igor caught in a love triangle and how his relationships with others changes.
According to a poll, 57% of Leesville students listen to Tyler, the Creator.
I love everything about IGOR from the different genres of music used in his album — soul, hip hop, electronic and R&B music. Flower Boy is a close second for me.
