It's a convo with a taxi driver bruh. That's why in the end you hear him getting out of the car and sh*t.
my b, i was thinking of Pink Matter... even still, Bad Religion is a CONFESSION to a taxi driver about his 'unreqited love' to his first love: the man he wrote about in his letter.

I could give a fu*k if he's gay, bis3xual or whatever, that's his business.

All that sh*t aside though, this album seems slightly overhyped imo. I mean it's a good album, some great tracks.. but on the whole I'd rate it as a 4/5 while some of y'all are acting like it's something genius or whatever.

Even if Frank Ocean is signing in the perspective of a man, Forrest Gump is so fu*king heavenly.
Really is. I'll just change it from "boy" to "girl" when I sing it out loud

Not saying that "so buff and so strong" line though

After 6 spins, I give this a solid 8 out of 10. Frankie did his thing. Favorite joints are Thinking About You, Sierra Leone, Super Rich Kids, Pyramids, Pink Matter and Forrest Gump

This is an amazing album.

It's a shame to see so much ignorance being thrown around here though. You don't relate through "he's" and "she's" on a song when someone is singing, you relate through the emotions. He could of said "he/him" instead of "she/her" on every song and it wouldn't of remotely changed my opinion on this album. We're human, just because Frank Ocean is gay does not mean that you cannot relate to his music because of that. Love, passion, loss, longing, etc, these are all emotions he sings about and just because some of them may be directed at a male means nothing because he's just expressing his emotions and feeling as a human being to another human being. That's all.

Even on Forest Gump, the most blatant song about his s3xuality, at the end of the song he sings...

If this is love, I know it's true
I won't For-get you (you)

Does it matter if that is directed at a male or a female? It shouldn't. If you can relate to the emotion, I don't understand why anything else should matter.

I think the saddest part about what I'm seeing, aside from the sheer ignorance, is the insecurity and desperate need for validity to enjoy this album from other members. I see so many posts from people whom clearly enjoyed the album or whom haven't downloaded it yet but want to that make posts referencing his s3xuality in a joking way but also eluding to wanting to listen to Channel Orange, kind of looking for enough people to tell them "who cares if he's gay, just listen to his album and see what you think!," as if they need the approval from others to make sure it's not "fu*king gay" to listen to it or something along those lines.

I truly believe that those who are brushing this album off because of his s3xuality are either extremely insecure with themselves or very religious and find offense to it (which is a whole other issue). I guess I'll just end with... I don't know if this is a classic album, I really have no clue but I do know that is a nearly flawless album, in my opinion, from start to finish. If I still feel the same way in 6 months, then I can speculate the whole classic thing but for right now, I'm going to continue to enjoy this album and hope that people can look past the bullsh*t and ignorance of society (and in this case, Boxden) and listen to this album from your OWN perspective. If you don't like it, cool, but at least you gave it a shot without a ridiculous bias.

Just my .2 though...

What more can i say..
