This is an album to watch, buy and listen to…over and over again!
SELF-SERVING, ARROGANT, PRETENTIOUS, CONTROLLING, STUBBORN, INCONSISTENT, MORALLY GREY… GORGEOUS, MODEST, COMPASSIONATE, GENIUS, HONEST, KIND, RELIABLE, RARE HUMAN BEING.
i’ll take the positive and not so positive adjectives about me in stride.

Life of a Rock Star is overwhelmed by the smooth sounds of Frank Ocean’s new album. From the opening song, “Start” to the last song “End” we are enthralled by his captivating sound.
Channel Orange is that album you put on to decompress, have a glass of wine, read the evening paper…wait, does anyone even do that anymore? OKAY, throw back a shot of tequila, check your email, catch up on Facebook, and tweet your friends about how much you love “Channel Orange!”
“Pyramids” especially has us feeling the Frank Ocean love.
Lyrics from the Pyramid:
“& we’ll run to the future shining like diamonds in a rocky world our skin like bronze & our hair like cashmere as we march to the rhythm on the palace floor chandeliers inside the pyramids tremble from the force
cymbals crash inside the pyramids voices fill up the halls”
