nostalgia, ULTRA by Frank Ocean REVIEW

Frank Ocean. Nowadays, say these two words and pretty much everyone knows who you are talking about. He has been featured on songs such as "No Church In The Wild" and "Made In America" off of the collaboration album, "Watch the Throne" by Jay-Z and Kanye West. This was a fantastic mix tape from Frank, the odd man out in Odd Future.

Songs, including a chilling rendition of Coldplay's "Strawberry Swing" make me really believe that Frank is the next big thing in the music industry. Frank, it seems uses his music to get his views across, such as in the song "We All Try". Frank sings with such emotion that is not really seen in today's music industry except in a few cases, such as Adele for example. My personal favorite on this mix tape is the track, "Songs For Women". It starts off kind of layed back, but then gradually gets a little more serious, and the lyrics are brilliant. Frank's lyrics in all of these songs make sense and I really like them. 

This is a mix tape that I would definitely recommend downloading and is a great addition to the young musicians career.
