Music Writer Writes About Music

“The part that feels worth underlining is the way that, whether he’s writing about himself, about characters, or about the worlds around him, Ocean does amazingly little posturing, amazingly little audible management of persona, glamor, or cool — he seems to point a clear, calm eye all around, as if there’s more than enough in the world to notice without trying to act out something attractive about himself.”
 — Nitsuh Abebe has written the best piece I’ve yet read about the subject that everybody’s writing about, which is Frank Ocean’s new album Channel Orange — a subject that warrants all the writing and reading about. It is so, so, so good.
