2.0 out of 5 stars What's all the fuss?, 7 Jan. 2013
This review is from: Channel Orange (Explicit Version) [Explicit] [+digital booklet] (MP3 Download)
Okay so maybe I'm missing the point here! Who cares? My review is based on what I hear,mostly.
If you're idea of an excellent album,which,lets face it,this is far from,despite the glowing reviews,is a bunch of incoherent,unfinished interludes,a few decent enough songs and a couple of excellent songs,then maybe either this is the album for you OR you are very,very easily satisfied.
Some great lyrics,some excellent production values and franks awesome voice are not enough to credit this debut with four or five stars! I agree,it does show some brilliance but those moments are few and far between.
This album shows great promise for the future and hence why I feel this album only gives us a slight insight,like he has popped his head around the curtain and given us a few flashes of what's hopefully to come. It's nowhere near as accomplished an effort as industry insiders would have us believe.
Apart from that,and call me cynical, but, so what if he's gay,so what that he wrote a letter explaining with vibrant honesty about this ' issue' . Quit making it an issue and maybe one day,it won't be one. Being heterosexual isn't an 'issue' for jeez sake!
Coincidence that this letter was written to coincide with the release of his debut album? That is for you to decide but, basically, his confessional wasn't needed right now,wasn't asked for and is certainly not important to the outcome of what the albums content came to be! But I bet it helped shift a few more units!
Try harder next time mr...put the effort into the music,it's there alright but it needs some fond nurturing!

I would give the album 3 stars but I pretty much agree with this review - acouple of excellent songs and a few decent ones. I was disappointed having expected more because of all the fuss. For me the best song by far is Pink Matter.
