Frank Ocean

Channel Orange


odd future's crooner frank ocean unleashes his album 'channel orange' much like last year's 'nostalgia ultra' the lushly produced songs on 'channel orange' are connected by tapedamaged interludes of dialogue and sound effects and warped snippets of tracks giving things an intimate homemade scope and feel the record begins with an upgraded version of 'thinking about you' now with gorgeous strings and also features previouslyheard tracks 'forrest gump' 'pyramids' and 'super rich kids' a distorted version of the tumblrleaked track 'voodoo' could be heard underneath the album's outro elsewhere ocean offers left turn after left turn from psychedelic soul a la sly stone to d'angelostyle keyboardbased rampb to a politicallycharged track delivered over a nimble beat reminiscent of a tribe called quest to something akin to a spacedout epic rock ballad in which a conversation with a cabbie inspires ocean to ponder some of life's big questions needless to say this is not your typical majorlabel rampb record so when andre 3000 showed up to offer some guest rapping and singing near the end of the album it made a hell of a lot of sense
