It hasn’t even been 24 full hours since Frank Ocean’s new album hit ITunes. There has been talk speculating if Frank’s announcement was a gimmick or publicity stunt. While the debate goes on, the album hits # 1 in the United States, United Kingdom, Sweden, Ireland, Denmark, Canada, Austrailia, Greece, Finland, Norway, New Zealand, Estonia.
I normally don’t write reviews, this case is an exception. This album is what we’ve come to expect Frank Ocean – introspective lyrics, his soulful voice and dynamic harmonies, and some double meanings etc. Standout tracks include Sweet Life, Pink Matter feat. Andre 3000 and Bad Religion to name a few.
No matter what you feel whether its gimmick, publicity stunt, or refreshing honesty one thing is for sure – numbers don’t lie. Well done Mr. Ocean!
