This little compilation from Frank Ocean is a collection of his unreleased tracks, likely from when he was shelved at Def Jam/before the Def Jam sign. There are a lot of Brian Kennedy and Midi Mafia spots as well as a few guest features (which are not credited). I’ve probably heard more Frank Ocean tonight than I ever though I would, but there was nothing but decent-good music on this – 64 tracks deep. While this does have a lot of solid songs, a good 90% of this does not stand-out. There are only about 15-17 songs that I’d throw on my iTunes out of the 64, and since I went through the mission of listening to and rating this, I’ll save you the trouble of listening through this 3 hour compilation and just list the tracks I deem worthy of numerous replays. Enjoy!


Standout Tracks (listen to these, if anything)

Go Up
Greedy Love
Hardest Thing
Holly Baby
If I’m In Love
*Love On My Piano (my personal favorite from this project)
Miss You So
Richest Man In The Room
Scared Of Beautiful
She Won’t Say Hello
When I’m Done
