The better prog bands long ago realized that treating an album as a single piece of art with seamless transitions between tracks makes the entire thing work better than just slapping random hits and misses together. Tyler, the Creator has figured that out, too. He also refuses to allow his work to be caged down and on CMIYGL he plays whatever the fuck he wants and excelled largely each time. He's not a generic rapper, but an artist and this is his latest piece of art that has more in common with those old prog releases than pop ones.
Check out Tyler's latest, fantastic album when you get a chance.
