Great stuff, brilliant lyrics from Frank, along with some deliciously smooth singing.
This album is a travel between the earth of R'n'B and VOcals and the moon of adventurous music and genious lyrics!
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.
AMAZING ALBUM. one of the best (if not the best) i ever Hear.
Some of my less adventurous friends spurned Channel Orange when I showed it to them. After many conversations about it, it came down to this: "It's too forward-thinking, too immersive, too honest, too non-stereotypical." Yet that's what I love it for. I think Frank Ocean scares them. Such a talent is terrifying to anyone with an aversion to anything that could get them to think or feel rather than blindly listen. Maybe Frank and I will never win them over, but I'll keep seeing orange anyway.

no matter what the genre - great music is great music, a mixture of excellent songs and brilliant songs, the singing is exquisite in places, each song is superbly produced, sumptuous grooves throughout
In this case, the critics got it (mostly) right.
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. It can be provocative, lost, fucked up yet dreary at the same time. This dude is a genius in combining words into lyrics in one song: “taxi driver”, “allahu akbar”, “shrink”, “bad rel
The honest emotion throughout the album is enough to carry it through some of its weaker songs. Thinkin' Bout You is quite possibly the greatest love song of the year.
Great album, looking forward to hearing more from Frank Ocean this is only the beginning
Another Odd Future member continues the group's evolution from horrifyingly bad rap music to what sounds like top 40 radio garbage.
a spectacle.An important record in the r&b industry.
Even amidst the improved production and stellar moments, it's still Frank Ocean himself and his charisma that wins you over.
