Your Review
A solid mixtape debut, from one of the best singer/songwirting artist in today's generation.
considering that this project rarely comes up in frank's discography recommendations you would think it would be an immature songwriter with some meh songs however that isn't the case
SLAP: Swim Good, American Wedding, Lovecrimes, Nature Feels

BORDERLINE SKIP: There Will Be Tears


VERDICT: Love the artwork, love the mixtape
fight me with this if you wanna, but frank ocean still didn't made a bad song to date, all his songs either are good or great or excellent. This is why he is one of the greatest songwriters of this generation.
If Channel Orange was Frank Ocean's pop breakthrough a la Lil Wayne's Tha Carter 3, then Nostalgia, Ultra. is Frank's Da Drought 3, due to its hype-building off of covers of other artist's material. Here, when Frank isn't turning modern rock classics like "Hotel California" and "Electric Feel" into songs about sex and partnership, he's churning out better new material. "Novacane" and "Songs for Women" are just as likable now as they were in 2011.
