Frank Ocean – Nostalgia, Ultra
Odd Future member Frank Ocean may at first sound like some crazy hybrid of Trey Songz and Kid Cudi, but those comparisons will stop once you get through the first few tracks of nostalgia, ultra. Here’s the thing: this is a really good R&B album…there I said it. Frank Ocean is a singer who croons about his feelings, writes love songs, and in the process makes some quality music. The excellent songwriting and psychedelic production, combined with Ocean’s ear for beats and powerful voice make for a cohesive, melodically sophisticated concept album mixtape. For all you Drake haters, you should probably hit the jump, download the free, self-released-on-tumblr album, and re-affirm your love for that R&B swag
