AlmostAGhost’s Top Albums Of 2012: #26. Frank Ocean – channel ORANGE

Frank Ocean - channel ORANGE
all the peaches and the mangos you could sell for me

While I do think channel ORANGE is generally overrated–he’s hitting the top of many year-end lists–I still dig it, and respect Ocean’s brazenness. Any album brimming with this many ideas is bound to be worth a listen. It feels both classic and modern, timeless yet unique, innovative but standard. Different genres float in and out, all on a minimal bed of electro-sounding R&B. Though I won’t deny, some of it confuses me (a song about Forrest Gump? in 2012? wtf).
