Some of my less adventurous friends spurned Channel Orange when I showed it to them.

Channel Orange is engrossing with original and demanding flavor from the superb and talented new kid on the block, Frank Ocean. 2012's best? Without a doubt.

I’ve never heard RnB/Soul song that lasts almost 10 minutes long (Pyramids 09:54). I’ve never heard words like “Allahu Akbar” sang by an RnB singer. The song is called Bad Religion. It’s not about religion at all. It’s unrequited love song. Gay love song. Forbidden one. This song also has multi-interpreted lyrics.
