"I Don't Like Shit, I Don't Go Outside" is the second studio album release from Earl Sweatshirt. After a mysterious disappearance due to being sent away to an at-risk school for boys in Samoa, Earl Sweatshirt took the world by storm with his first album release, "Doris". This follow up to that release is nothing short of a masterpiece - simple yet complex, Earl Sweatshirt proves that less truly is more!
"At just under a half hour, [I Don't Like Shit, I Don't Go Outside is] even more understated than its predecessor, with fewer guests, almost no outside producers, less variety—less everything, really. That may sound like a downgrade, but it’s not, since here the anti-spectacle becomes a kind of spectacle of its own, as Earl tests how far his music can retreat into itself. The lonely chords and curt drums of “Mantra” echo as if recorded in an abandoned warehouse. “Grief” is all broken tones, shrill and mistreated, a disquieting backdrop for Earl’s depressive accounts of loss and retreat. It’s gloomy stuff, yet there’s a mischievous wit underneath it all, a different manifestation of the same audacity that bore Earl’s rebellious early raps." -A.V. Club (album review)
