* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: Of all the work released by the collective, ''Bastard'' is the most highly regarded.
** ''Earl'' has some of the best lines ever. And that was when he was ''sixteen.'' And ''then'' [[GrowingTheBeard he got back]] [[SerialEscalation from Samoa]]...
** ''Goblin'' also received a lot of praise, despite its status as a somewhat ContestedSequel.
** ''channel ORANGE'' seems to be riding a wave of acclaim, much like its predecessor ''nostalgia, ULTRA'' a year before. ''Blonde'' even moreso.
** ''Wolf'' has Tyler GrowingTheBeard in almost every department, and its acclaim is beginning to rival ''Bastard''.
*** Domo's verse on "Rusty" is widely agreed to be his best one yet, and even somewhat overshadows Tyler's and Earl's. ([[spoiler:If it weren't for the fact that Earl gets shot by Samuel half way through it.]])
** ''Cherry Bomb'' has also gotten notice for Tyler's sonic diversion and experimentation. When "Fucking Young" and "Deathcamp" were both dropped in the same video, the Internet was understandably hyped.



* CrowningMomentOfAwesome: Tyler winning the Best New Artist [=VMA=].
** [[HesBack "Aaaand I'mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmback...]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z2nKDkSBepk Bye."]]
* CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming: Tyler accepting his [=VMA=], you can tell he never expected to win it.
** Their video for "Oldie." ''The entire group'' (or at least most of it) appears in the video, with all the members hanging out and playing around with each other. Everyone is obviously excited to be there, especially Tyler, who dances with Earl at one point and does a weird standing stage-dive at the end. The song itself could also count, especially the final verse -- it's Tyler rapping about starting Odd Future and how [[TrueCompanions it is his family.]]
*** The dedication at the end of "Oldie" is also pretty heartwarming.
** The outpouring of good will for Frank in the wake of his coming out. Hip-hop and R&B took a big step forward.

*** On ''Loiter Squad,'' most of the cast employ BadBadActing. In Mike G's case, it's ''[[DullSurprise Bad]] BadBadActing''. However, [[TheStoner his]] [[CloudCuckooLander personality]] just makes it even funnier, [[StraightMan especially since he's such a laid back guy]] in a group of {{Large Ham}}s.

* SoOkayItsAverage: Some of the members' technical skills often get this criticism from some Rap fans. One of the things that makes them TheScrappy to a lot of communities is their perceived [[ItsTheSameSoItSucks lack of progression]], though even on this very page, several of their members are listed under GrowingTheBeard trope. Their reputation as such seems to be fading as each member grows, though.

* WhatTheHellCastingAgency: Tyler collaborated with The Game on the latter's track "Martians vs. Goblins." Tyler, a goofy alt-rapper, and The Game, a usually dead-serious GangstaRap artist, are somewhat of an odd match.

** This is especially depressing when you consider that one of Tyler's biggest musical goals has been to eventually win a Grammy.
