Frank Ocean – channel ORANGE

A week earlier than expected – Frank Ocean‘s debut album is finally out!

channel ORANGE was supposed to answer many questions. But it does not, it still leaves me confused. Is this really a guy who comes from the hip-hop background? I have found a way out of this though.

The solution is not to ask yourselves those questions and that is hard because they naturally arise when an artist gets a bit too much attention before he actually releases his debut material (James Blake?). And when I put off all the expectations, I got an amazingly well written r&b album with interesting collaborations (Earl Sweatshirt, John Mayer and Andre 3000) and magnificent track Pyramids (already mentioned on OSoM Blog’s facebook page). Maybe not my kind of music but still something worth giving a chance.
