Frank Ocean - Blond(e) (Boys Don't Cry Records)

4 years after the stunning Channel Orange, R&B UFO Frank Ocean is back with his second album, Blond(e), released on his own label Boys Don't Cry, a few days after Endless, a demo tape mostly aimed at fulfilling his contractual obligations to Universal.

A hyped profile inherited from his terrific debuts, a long list of prestigious guests, high expectations following such a long wait since his debut LP: this kind of recipe often spells disappointment. But the 28-year old singer & producer strikes another home-run with a nostalgic journey tainted with lo-fi shades of folk & soul, supported by another remarkable singing achievement.
A true concept LP ideal to shelter you from post-summer blues.
