die erwartungen waren gross, doch sie würden mehr als erfüllt. riese scheibe des r&b-künstlers, der sich wenige tage vor release geoutet hatte. musikalisch riesig. eines der grössten werke des jahres.
*****
As a big fan of The Weeknd, I find this to be somewhat familiar territory. If I could think of a key difference, it's that on Channel Orange, Frank explores a far more diverse palette. The production provides a wide variety of styles with melodies held together by Frank's ever so smooth vocal talents. This lives up to the hype and is deserving of all the accolades.
*****
A very good album.

Frank Ocean combines various and bravura styles in this album and mixes it up a bit. A lot going on in this album. The thing about this though, is that it's more of a flow and sequential type of album, rather than a compilation of tracks/singles. The only negative about this album is that some of the songs just don't make much sense, and that they seem rather basic.

Other than that, a well produced debut album from a rising star.

Ganz grosser Müll.... natürlich wirds all den Adele-Fans gefallen

Angenehmes Album ...

Wenn man bedenkt, dass dies nicht meine Musikrichtung ist, so ist meine Wertung fast schon sensationell.
Das liegt weniger an den Songs, viele würde ich gar nicht als "Songs" bezeichnen. Sondenr vielmehr an Franks toller stimme, die mich des öfteren an den guten alten Lenny Kravitz erinnert und da sind wir wieder bei meinem Musikgeschmack.

While it's by no means my favourite album of 2012, I can understand why the critics like it so much. It has this whole moody undertone thingie going for it and lyrics with hidden meaning and the like that critics love. But to me, it just didn't hit home like I thought it would. There are more songs on here that I enjoyed than songs I didn't (loved Thinking Bout You and Bad Religion and liked most of the second half of the album) but there are just little bits that I thought didn't connect for me. Maybe it's just not my thing...
*****
Boy has this record received the instant-canonisation albums rarely receive, and there's definitely a good reason for songs as simultaneously innovative and emotionally captivating as Pyramids, Sweet Life, and Bad Religion. I don't love it quite as much as others are, but it's a welcome addition to a new movement of stunning innovation in R&B music.

It has a very few highlights for me and I feel it was one of the most over rated album releases of 2012.

48/84
