Any thoughts I have about this beautiful piece of work have already been expressed at a far more articulate level than I could ever imagine, so I'll just say this: close your eyes, open your ears and give it a go. You may just find yourself completely lost in "channel orange".

From NickyTBlizzad 10/22/2016 16:27
I heard so much hype about Frank Ocean and significantly, this album. So I decided to take a listen. I'm not a huge fan of the R&B genre, but this album changed that. Each song is golden (some more golden than others i.e. Pyramids, Thinking About You, Lost) Frank Ocean is like the Radiohead of R&B. Both artists create such beautiful music and know what to add and what not to whether it's something super complicated or just plain simple. And the lyrics carry such deep meanings that will stick in your head. I love how Frank Ocean mixes many genres into his work. I've never thought that I would be hearing some spacey, psychedelic form of R&B in my life and I just found it. This is just a beautiful piece of work you'll surely enjoy.

It took me 10 listens to work out exactly what I think of Channel Orange. Every time, I've found something else I must have missed on the previous listen. I knew from the start that I loved it, but I wasn't sure why. Now, I think I do.

Channel Orange is grounded in a pertinent realism that Ocean integrates into every song on the album, strengthened by his brilliant voice that acts as the focal point for much of the record.

The lyrics and themes of his music constitute one of the key parts of the album; they feel relevant and important, and by telling things from his own perspective (often with narrative), it brings awareness to these subjects and encourages you to think along as Ocean preaches.

And as well as all that, surrounding all of this is a incredibly complex and detailed sound that builds on classic RnB influences, but incorporates a countless number of other styles.

Mix these things together and you have a borderline masterpiece.

The quality and confidence of Ocean that is shown in successfully pulling this off is why I love this album. It stands as both a pinnacle and turning point for the genre. He is living in his own world on this album, but it remains inviting and welcoming. So many opposites that are balanced with effortless brilliance.

This is by far and away one of the most interesting takes on RnB of all time. Whether it's Ocean's lyrical subjects, genre-pushing music styles or outstanding production quality, this album will capture you in its genuine and thought-provoking grasp.

Took me 4 years to understand this album. I've always thought it was great, but not the modern masterpiece it has been revered. But after 4 years, 4 years, and some dark nights, I think I finally understand it.

I dare any other musician in this genre to create a song as perfect, bold, and personal as Forrest Gump

Quality, chilled R&B that harks back to the experimentation of Wonder et al from the 70s. The style is smooth with the vocals often gliding like the richest of velvet over the porcelain-like electronic background. Displaying obvious depth, Channel Orange is one of the best albums I've heard from the genre in recent times.

A landmark of modern RnB music. Beautiful pop melodies and structures seamlessly blended with subtly brilliant lyricism. I'm proud to be passionate about this album.

Can someone recommend me music exactly like this?
I always feel that this album drags on for too long, or just has incomplete ideas, though enjoyed greatly the top-rated tracks.
