Sorry, Mixtape. We're listening to it now. I like the Strawberry Swing bit so far. I'll have to hear Kids later.

Can someone explain to me what the difference is between an album and a mixtape? I assumed it was another name for an EP but it's album-length...

Mixtapes are, by definition, self-released and distributed via independent labels. It allows the artists artistic freedom re: samples and subject matter that they typically wouldn't be afforded on their official releases.

Ahh righto. That explains the heavy use of Strawberry Swing and Kids, and the collabs that keep coming out of Wu Tang.

I feel so conflicted listening to Frank Ocean. His songs are a little scatterbrained, and I get the sense that he's not much of a songwriter, so if he had the help of an artist like The-Dream, that would perhaps benefit him. And his beats are, at the moment, a little bit tinny and unremarkable. If he had Kanye behind the boards...

However, he's walking a fine line between extremely promising young soul singer and multi-platinum R&B ho, and he's likely going to have to choose one or the other if he wants to get anywhere. I'm curious about the guy, to say the least.

I really, really hope he goes the former. Maybe he can become the new Usher (before he turned to shit).

Yeah, if Made in America gets released as a single, his career will skyrocket.

Has She been released? I know Goblin did pretty well commercially in America, She would probably be a pretty big hit?

Yep, I definitely see him going down the latter path. He's got the voice for it. He's getting to know all of the right people to have the songwriting for it too.

I've heard it on the radio once already. Local hip hop station.

It's definitely among my top tracks on the album, and his hook is a big part of the reason why. It reminds me of College Dropout era Kanye.

Guys, in Welcome to the Jungle, when Jay-Z says "I'm losing my soul/I'm stuck in a moment", do you think that was a not-so-subtle nod to U2 in appreciation for his opening for them in Australia?

I don't think it's that much of a stretch, honestly.

You're def onto something. I thought No Church In The Wild was clearly inspired by Crumbs From Your Shuttle.
