Mate, Frank Ocean made us wait how long for this album? Come on! By the time it came out, people were expecting fairy dust and unicorn zoos. These things don't exist so it was clearly not going to happen but I think he came pretty close (tooth fairy level).
I'm going to review with the help of my friends (whose permissions I did not obtain in advance)
You start this thinking 'mate if this is what I'm looking forward to, it's sick!
You know that song in the album you know that you're going to skip after the first few listens? This is it.
03 Pink + White
He said it best.
04 Be Yourself
One time I was listening to this album at 6am in the kitchen and my mum came and started talking to me and this came on and it just cast this nice holy veil on my head. Same thing happened with my friend, but with her driver.
"In hell, In hell, there's heaven" , theres context for this lyric but based on my social conditioning, I still feel guilty about it
08 Good Guy
This is one of my faves because it comes up at a point where I've stopped listening to the thing and my ears perk up again
I think this is the first easy fave - until pick + fucking above (please see above)

LOL- this asshat with this French accent
Love- this is actually one of the longer songs and after all the snippets almost, you just want that
