Wired 25: The Top 25 Albums Of 2012
6. Frank Ocean – Channel Orange
Blah blah blah bravery. Blah blah blah courage. Blah blah blah Tumblr, we get it. We know the entire back story of this album from Frank Ocean. The bottom line is that this album is a cohesive, beautiful, and heartfelt R&B album with an edge made for the late 80s/90s babies. From the Playstation One introduction to the Dragon Ball Z-inspired “Pink Matter,” with Andre 3000; Frank knocked this out the park. Now bring home a Grammy, kid.
