This is among my favourite R&B albums of all time, a fantastic body of work right here imo. Kinda sucks how we finally find a great songwriter in mainstream music, and then he goes and ditches us.
EDIT: never mind he back
dude how are Earl's features always fire
Frank has been in hiding since the tail end of Channel Orange's runaway success, and it's easy to see why. It's a big album to follow up, and there are high expectations. Channel Orange is an excellent record, decidedly one of the best R&B albums in a long while, if not the best. Frank has one of the current era's most distinctive songwriting voices, and that talent is what makes the album so good. There is hardly a track here that isn't great (apart from "Monks", which has always ... read more
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.
NOTHING CAN BEAT THIS ALBUM
Ocean always sounds fresh on this record, appealing to our humanity and creating great romantic classics.
An ambitious album, executed brilliantly no matter the mood.
pyramids is a masterpiece within a masterpiece
Best Track: Thinkin Bout You, Super Rich Kids, Pilot Jones, Crack Rock, Pyramids, Lost, Bad Religion, or Forrest Gump
Worst Track: Monks
Most Overrated Track: Sweet Life
Most Underrated Track: Sierra Leone
Thoughtful and detailed, the 26-minute stretch from Super Rich Kids to Lost is one of the greatest moments in all of contemporary R&B
Frank Ocean's voice is not the greatest thing is the world. But when the production gives him room to breathe, he can really give a good performance. And speaking of the production, it's done very well throughout. I can definitely see why everyone thinks this will become a classic, even though it took a few listens.
Best Tracks: Thinkin Bout You, Sweet Life, Super Rich Kids, Pyramids, Lost, Bad Religion, Forrest Gump
Worst Tracks: Pilot Jones
FAV TRACKS : Thinkin Bout You
Super Rich Kids
EDIT: Still think this is an amazing album. Honestly, I can't see anything topping this in pop or r&b within this decade. There's pretty close to nothing wrong with Channel Orange, but god I really wish Fertilizer was a full track. It has such an infectious and upbeat melody and terrific production. Frank had the potential to be this generation's Michael Jackson, but unfortunately that never came to fruition. He's still one of the most talented pop artists of the 2010's though, and ... read more
Frank Ocean knows what he's doing in Channel Orange and he does it amazingly well. His songwriting abilities could deceive you into actually thinking he was a friend who is discussing topics that make you think about what life is really worth.
This is an amazing, personal, emotional, and wholly satisfying album. Frank Ocean absolutely killed this album and I don't think he'll top this album for a while.
• Super Rich Kids
• Pilot Jones
Acts as a commentary on contemporary life, yet does so in a way that is not only original but beautifully crafted.
Simply the best R&B album of this generation, and in the conversation for THE best album of this generation. Simply beautiful from front to back.
Best Songs: All of them except...
Worst Songs: Not Just Money, End
Top R&B Artists; amazing voice, able to communicate person pain that is able to be related to, despite the circumstance being so different in so many ways.
Fav Tracks; Thinkin Bout You, Pilot Jones, Lost
Es inevitable, al hablar de Frank Ocean, hablar de uno de las caras más visibles del R&B internacional. Entrábamos ya en 2013, incluso en 2014, cuando decidí darle una oportunidad al rap, y poco después llegó a mis manos esto. Channel ORANGE. Un disco que en poco tiempo, tanto a nivel objetivo como sentimental, se convirtió en uno de mis discos favoritos. Si bien sigo adorándolo tanto como el primer día, la experiencia y las escuchas ... read more

almost overwhelmingly easy listening. lush but uneventful
A lot of my friends love this album but to be honest I think its overrated. Maybe its because I cant relate the lyrics or maybe its because normally I cant stand R&B. His voice is obviously very good but quite poppy and timberlake like at times. The beats are simple and standard and nothing risky about this album at all. I can see why the iTunes warrior would think this is the best thing ever but in reality its overrated. But the album is an easy listen and quite pleasant on the ears and ... read more
