Let’s continue our 2012 recap with Frank Ocean.
When it comes down to music genres, I’m usually not the biggest fan of hip-hop, rap, r’n b, etc.
But this is different. This is much better than anything else.
Channel Orange is a stunning album and Pyramids is with no doubt its masterpiece. If you have to listen to only one song, it should be this one.
Pyramids is an epic 10 minutes long track combining various influences (electronic, slow jam, r’n b, etc.) and developed into two movements.
It has been one of my favorite song of 2012 and I’m sure I’ll still spend some few hours listening to it.
If you like it, don’t hesitate to have a listen to the rest of the album. My other favorite ones are Lost and Pink Matter.
