EDITORS’ NOTES

Stepping away from both the pop songwriting machine and his former crew Odd Future’s stoned anarchy, Frank Ocean guides us on a meandering but purposeful journey through his own vast mythological universe on his major-label debut. Channel ORANGE breezes from sepia-toned Stevie Wonder homage (“Sweet Life”) to the corrosive cosmic funk of “Pyramids,” which stretches from ancient pharaoh queens to 21st-century pimps. Rendered in pristine detail with calm, dazzled awe, even his most fantastical narratives feel somehow familiar—at once unprecedented and timeless.

Parental Advisory: Explicit Lyrics.

Lost

I would not have bought this is I had know that end of song there is a radio announcement type ending. I don’t need taking or advertisements in the song.
Song is terrific. Just don’t like listening knowing the ending.

Yeah

Still one of the best albums to date. I personally think blonde is better but this is still a masterpiece.
