Frank Ocean - channel ORANGE (2012)

Reason for Listening:
Frank Ocean was one of the artists in the "fans also like" section for Childish Gambino on Spotify. I love "Thinkin Bout You" and "Forrest Gump" so I decided to listen to channel ORANGE even though Blonde appears to be more popular.*

*A whooping six out of the ten most popular tracks for Frank Ocean on Spotify come from Blonde (while only two come from channel ORANGE). Additionally, Blonde also performed better than channel ORANGE (219 weeks on the chart vs. 61 weeks on the chart).

First listen.
Hehe. "My TV ain't HD, that's too real."
4: "Forrest Gump";
3: "Thinkin Bout You";
2: "Not Just Money"; "Super Rich Kids" (ft. Earl Sweatshirt); "Lost"; "Monks";
1: "Sweet Life"; "Pilot Jones"; "Crack Rock"; "White" (ft. John Mayer); "Pink Matter" (ft. Andre 3000);
0: "Start"; "Fertilizer"; "Pyramids"; "Bad Religion";
-1: "Sierra Leone"; "End";

The album had some interesting sounds and tracks, but it wasn't cohesive. In hindsight, I should have listened to Blonde instead.

Overall Rating: 3.4/5
Favorite Song: "Forrest Gump"
