It's a pretty good album. It's in my top 15 of the year, but I didn't find it revolutionary or anything.

That's been my biggest road block. I hear all this "modern classic" stuff, and the songs I've heard sound like they could easily fit on a number of R&B albums from the '90's. I guess Ralph Tresvant, Vince Gill, and Seal would blow hipster kids minds these days.

I did like the songs I've heard though.

It's not revolutionary at all.

But it is the best damn R&B album I've heard in an extremely long time.

Despite the above, I am still going to check the album out.

Best R&B album I've heard in a long time would be "Stone Rollin".

Does The Lady Killer count as R&B?

Blowing your mind, and wanting to blow your brains out are not the same thing.

Fuck yes. I've got to check out his earlier work.

Best R&B album of recent years = House of Balloons for sheer innovation, but Channel Orange is worthy.

I preferred Miguel's album a great deal to Frank Ocean's. It's not that I didn't like Channel Orange it just kind of felt a little overblown. PROBABLY because of all of the hype.

I gotta listen to that Miguel album again, I've heard it once and liked what I heard.

Channel Orange isn't terribly innovative, but it is a fantastic album full of memorable tunes. Regardless of how many words have been beaten about it, there is a certain indefinable pleasure of hearing an r n' b song about same sex love without an ounce of mass-pleasing campness. But even taking that away, it's surely as solid as any album released this year.

Is it weird I think a large number of the album covers on Pitchfork's "best album covers of 2012" belong in the worst list?
