"Channel Orange, his beautiful first full-length studio album, will be released this month, and it's rife with the sting of unrequited love, both on the receiving and inflicting ends. Mr. Ocean, 24, is an extremely unflashy songwriter, avoiding big proclamations and broad brush strokes, instead leaning on conversational gambits and the power of detail. He makes warm, cloudy soul with echoes of Stevie Wonder, Prince and Pharrell Williams..." - The New York Times

"Frank Ocean's Channel Orange Is Awesome" - The Fader

"Much like last year's Nostalgia, ULTRA, the lushly produced songs on Channel Orange are connected by tape-damaged interludes of dialogue and sound effects and warped snippets of tracks, giving things an intimate, homemade scope and feel... Needless to say, this is not your typical major-label R&B record." - Pitchfork

"His official debut gives prominence to his songwriting prowess and sonic versatility, as he intertwines the parallel styles of soul, R&B, jazz and even a bit of funk. Ocean feeds his appetite for different sound types by focusing more on sonics than structure and lacing Channel Orange with a mixture of bass lines, electronic synths, keys and flowing melodies. And don't forget: this is Frank's debut album." - Billboard
