EDITORS’ NOTES

Stepping away from both the pop songwriting machine and his former crew Odd Future’s stoned anarchy, Frank Ocean guides us on a meandering but purposeful journey through his own vast mythological universe on his major-label debut. Channel ORANGE breezes from sepia-toned Stevie Wonder homage (“Sweet Life”) to the corrosive cosmic funk of “Pyramids,” which stretches from ancient pharaoh queens to 21st-century pimps. Rendered in pristine detail with calm, dazzled awe, even his most fantastical narratives feel somehow familiar—at once unprecedented and timeless.

Parental Advisory: Explicit Lyrics.

WOW

Frank Ocean really just shocked me with this album. Album of the year with Cruel Summer.

Amazing Album

Frank Ocean is one of the greatest talents of our time and this album is an instant classic. Earl Sweatshirt is literally one of the most talented rappers I have ever heard, and Andre 3000 is already a legend. 5/5 Stars. OFWGKTA.
