But there's like 1 or 2 tracks where the lyrics are talking about men.

You can still relate to the other 15 tracks IMO.

That's why I wonder if people even gave it a shot.

If it wasn't for the obviously homo Forrest Gump song I couldn't find anything wrong with the CD. Haven't heard the Tyler bonus song though, and knowing how trash he is that might bring it down some

It's two songs; "bad religion" and "Forrest gump" . In "bad religion" he states,"I could never make him love me" ...those two songs are weird to listen too..

Yeah. Everywhere else they're calling this album and putting aside his s3xuality.

BX cool as fu*k, but when race/s3xuality is mentioned

Lotta retards in this thread. But, the album was not that good. It lacked anything experimental that made him dope and gave him his buzz in the first place. sh*t is way too safe and way too polished. I don't fu*k with this album at all, from a musical stand point.

It is suspect, but Frank O stans will pretend that subject matter has no bearing in the music that you chose to listen to. As if a grown man singing about loving his own gender is a "minor huddle", hell nah that's a mountain. The best soul music and R&B is a man singing about his love for a woman, or a woman singing about her love for a man. We criticize straight artists for their subject matter ALL THE TIME, hell Brian McKnight just got sh*tted on for that pus*y Works song, but then as soon as you say that you wont bump Frank Ocean because of his gay a.ss content you're labeled "insecure". I love how these sugarb00ty homos are changing the goal post for gay artists and making it where you cant even critique these motherfu*kers.
You aren't critiquing though, you're judging.

There's a huge difference between listening to the album and explaining why you didn't like it versus writing it off in it's entirety because of his s3xuality.

Well I personally don't like it because it doesn't flow together well. I also feel like theres to many interludes and unnecessary sh*t going on. & the lyrics are blah its more of a instrumental cd with a guy making sounds on it then anything else. When compared to his other projects this one doesn't create the visuals.

When nostalgia, ultra came on it set the tone and the mood was kept thru the whole entire mixtape/album whatever. When this one comes on you don't know whats going on you don't know the mood you don't no the direction and it just gets worst and it plays out.

"Thinking about you" is a great song but it came out last summer & it doesn't fit with none of the songs on this album at all. I wanna call it a whole bunch of songs he experimented with and threw on one cd, but then I can't say that because "The Lonny Breaux Collection" surpasses this album 12 times.

I said it once and I'll say it again the only reason everybody is all about this album is because of the hype around him right now. He has better and has done better I'm sure of it I use to be an avid Frank Ocean listener. But this just doesn't do it at all it's almost disappointing as we have no real feel to R&B music anymore.

To top it all off he's part of this new wave of the lets turn the world gay bandwagon.

the whole album is trash. Frank Ocean is just the latest fad. getting love cuz he came out the closet and had some features on Watch the Throne now everybody who never heard of him before (not us of course) is on his d!ck hard as fu*k. Say what you want but the sh*t is weak and if he keeps making sh*t like this he aint going nowhere.

Just listened to the album straight through and it is nothing special. It's a good r&b album, but that's about. I could care less if dude is gay cause Nostalgia was a dope tape and inward bumpin' that , but this just didn't have any songs that I thoroughly enjoyed. Also I was disappointed with Andre's verses cause I was really looking forward to that song and it was again average to me. Hopefully Frank can return to what brought him all the hype.

I agree, to a degree. How many Frank O fans would listen to some racist KKK homophobe artist?
