17 Songs, 1 Hour

EDITORS’ NOTES

An album we’ll be listening to and talking about for years. As enigmatic as its author, Blonde is a daring set of ambient post-R&B that slips into your bloodstream. Though it’s rich in luxurious wordplay and melody, Ocean favors impressionism here, from the mood-altering moves of “Nights” to the velveteen drift of “White Ferrari.” The result is oblique yet surprisingly emotional and intimate—a tour de force that sneaks up on you.
