Frank Ocean - Blonde

'Blonde' is an incredibly mature, intimate, personal, complex and ultimately riveting piece of work imo. It's very stripped back and relaxing, even though the production here is really gorgeous, a lot of the songs here don't even have beats, just piano, synths, backing vocals etc. Frank's voice and lyrics are the main focus which I think massively benefits this album, it makes it feel a lot more personal, which when compared to Channel Orange, it is.

'Blonde' to me reads as an hour long musical journey into Frank's bare thoughts and consciousness, and he's graced these thoughts with fantastic songwriting and luscious production. 'Blonde' is one of the years biggest highlights for me and I definitely recommend giving it a try if you haven't already.
