I hope this dude is okay! Haven't heard much from him since the various features (beyonce, kanye) hoping he'll release another full length debut. Channel Orange is quirky but quite a good modern-r&b record with much color.

I really don't get why this is so acclaimed on this site. Will probably re-listen at some point, but I guess pop/RnB isn't my thing.

the concept that he is shuffling through channels it's really original. pnly certain songs like super rich kids, thinkin bout you, pyramids or forrest gump, can work alone, the rest doesn't fit anywhere outside the album, not a bad thing though

The beginning of Channel ORANGE is too soft and cheesy but almost every song from 10. Pyramids until the end are very good and original.

Favorite tracks: Bad Religion, Forrest Gump
Less favorite tracks: Start, Monks

Great album, but sadly, I feel, overrated the year of its release. I think a lot of the songs (especially in the later half) just don't hold up over time and listenings.

He has a great voice, and there's a couple great songs on here, but maybe most people disagree with me, but I feel like a lot of it is filler.

His voice is soft enough to bring about a feeling of femininity in his songs. But also masculine enough to make you feel like a tough guy when listening, aside from a few tracks (Bad Religion and Thinkin Bout You) the lyrics are mediocre. But that's all I really have bad to say about this album. Instrumentals are tight and Earl is on it. All around pretty Pop/RnB vibes Throughout.

There's a definite dud or two in here, but songs like Thinkin Bout You, Sweet Life, Pyramids, Bad Religion, and Forrest Gump make up for the low points.

Bad Religion, Pyramids & Super Rich Kids are the top choices for me. Just perfection.
