New Music Review: Frank Ocean - Nostalgia, Ultra


Every so often a project comes along that is so starkly different from the norm that you have to stop and give it your undivided attention. Enter Nostalgia, Ultra. The debut offering from Frank Ocean (a.k.a Christopher "Lonny" Breaux), a noted songwriter for the likes of John Legend, Justin Beiber and Brandy, Nostalgia, Ultra is genre-bending piece that speaks to the inner thoughts of a 20-something male. With one of the most creative and distinctive writing styles in the music industry, Frank Ocean touches on every topic from the non-sanctity of marriage (on American Wedding) to the emptiness of growing up father-less (on the Mr. Hudson cover, There Will Be Tears). Associated with the burgeoning hip-hop collective OFWGKTA, Ocean has self promoted the quiet release, but if you value solid vocals and carefully crafted tunes, download the free album and let me know what you think.


Album Standouts: American Wedding, We All Try, Novacane, Dust
