I've been trying but this record has never really "clicked" for me. It's too inconsistent and many of the songs aren't particularly attention-grabbing. Not taking anything away from Frank Ocean though, he is obviously incredibly talented and brilliant songs such Thinkin' Bout You, Lost and Super Rich Kids show this well. But for now the album is a little bit of a let-down for me.

Inconsistent, but "Pyramids" is a classic.

Pyramids and Bad Religion are some of 2012's best tracks, and Andre 3000 working his magic on Pink Matter is awesome, but everything else on the album is pretty standard

I liked it, but I think it was a little overpraised. The only thing that's really brilliant here is Pyramids. Thinkin bout you, Bad religion and Lost are very good too, but the rest was just OK for me.

I honestly don't know or care much about anything Odd Future related. I'm not going to lie, the enormous hype relative to people like Frank Ocean, Tyler the Creator, and Earl Sweatshirt is dumbfounding as from what I feel is anything explementary. Though, I do try to be ahead of the curve when being aware and I admit this is a year where I was mostly far behind due to a minute apathy for media beyond cinema. That said, Frank Ocean isn't certainly bad, but is he great on Channel Orange? I am thinking no for my own opinion on the matter. Frank Ocean has slick production yes, but he also has a matter of style and songwriting that get's criticized when it is released by R. Kelly, Usher, and Chris Brown. Sure, each of those musicians don't have the drive to implement influences that Frank Ocean does and tend to release the same song twelve times per record. Perhaps I'm a little biased in regards to contemporary R&B, but that's because its devoid of much soul in the first place and is partially responsible for killing the soul in soul music.

Channel Orange isn't a bad record, especially on songs like Pyramids, which features a overladen synthetic funk composition under Ocean's run-of-the-mill vocals. If this is what Frank Ocean has to offer then I'm honestly not interested. Of which is fine as he has plenty fanbase to go through and has a place in this era of soulless consumerist contemporary R&B. In the meantime I'll actually listen to records with soul, both nostalgic and progressive.

I'll pass on Channel Orange.

Contrary to the popular belief that the second half is stronger than the first on this album, I think that Frank Ocean and his production team did a great job in uniformly scattering all the average tracks and great tracks all around here and there into this record, and you don't even have to tell their quality by the lyrics in them. Just take a rough glance at the melody and rhythm itself and you can get it really fast. I like how consistent this sounds due to its evenly distributed quality and uniform atmosphere!

Comfortably the best album of last year. Probably best of the decade so far, just edging out the Suburbs.
