Quick Thoughts:

This little compilation from Frank Ocean is a collection of unreleased tracks, likely from his time being shelved at Def Jam/or just before the Def Jam sign. There are a lot of Brian Kennedy and Midi Mafia production 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 to good music on this at 64 tracks deep, so I can’t complain. While this compilation does have a lot of solid songs, a good 90% of this compilation does not stand-out.

There are only about 15-17 songs that I’d throw on my playlist 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
