An absolute beatuiful,cultivated album. Franks superb vocals are showcased on every song, where each feature has been carefully selcted and used only used to enhance and improve each song rather than steal the spotlight.

A complete disregard for every pop music convention results in on of the greatest albums of all time. Haunting, gorgeous, ethereal

One of the greatest albums in recent memory; Frank kills it on every track with beautiful production bolstering him.

I disagree. I think Blonde is miles better than Channel orange. Pyramids is still my favourite song from him, but I find this album way more consistent.

Love how Frank uses features on this record. It must have been so tempting to give Beyonce and Kendrick Lamar bigger guest spots but Pink + White and Skyline To work really well with them just in the background. Also great that Andre 3000 gets his own shorter track, would've hated for that to be shoehorned into any of the other tracks here.

Frank took some risks here and they all seemed to just work. Great album. Hopefully we don't have to wait as long for the next!

People need to stop comparing this record to Channel Orange. I know, I know it's the same artist, but I feel Frank was in two completely different frames of mind when writing both records. It's apples and oranges.
CO is full of pop/RnB classics and even though Frank doesn;t necesarilly sound "happy" throughout that record, you can tell he's singing those songs through clenched teeth and a forced smile.
Blonde is Frank giving up on the smiles and the fakery of public image. It truly is a sombre record, unapologetically so.
Granteed, there is some filler and unnecesarry skits, but the emotion being emmitted here is just so devistatingly raw. "Ivy" and "Pink + White" are catchy, radio singles which fans of CO will love.
But as the record progresses it gets more and more devastating. I don't think a song has pushed me to the brink of tears quite like "Seigfried". Just hearing Frank sing "I'd rather live outside/ I'd rather chip my pride than lose my mind out here" then chase it with "I'm not brave!" is truly, utterly gorgeous.
The best record of 2016.
