Frank Ocean – Channel Orange


Many love Frank Ocean for the fearlessness he brings in everything he does, that’s why the announcement of his first major label debut album – Channel Orange - sent many to a squeal of excitement. With bold stylistic maneuvers and instrumentation choices outside of the R&B range, Channel Orange dabbles with a variety of song layouts- occasionally presenting his audience with life’s big questions. With 17 tracks, the internet-famous Thinkin Bout You leads the album with Ocean’s clawing falsetto never failing to impress. Other notable tracks in the album are Sweet Life, Pilot Jones, Pyramid and Lost. Overall, Channel Orange is a reflection of the complexity of American life from the mind of a young vocalist and writer forging an unfamiliar path.
