    Album of the year: Blonde -- Frank Ocean

    Have to say, I'm a huge Frank Ocean fan dating back to his nostalgia ultra mixtape and I was heavily anticipating his growth as an artist. His style has always been impeccable and refreshing, especially in this genre. He has a way of telling stories in such a unique way that you have to listen to his tracks more than once. After years of silence (literally not giving his fans any bread crumbs), he drops a visual album following Blonde a couple days after

    Most albums are bland; they'll be equipped with 20 something tracks, have a couple bangers, 5-6 skippable tracks, that's it. Blonde is thoughtful and provoking. Its the type of album you simply can't zip from track A to track B. Each track has a different vibe to it and it still manages to follow the same theme. Huge credits to the production for making each track have a different landscape and overall enjoyable. I find some tracks from other albums have the same sound with different lyrical content, while Blonde simply has masterful production along with different lyrical content

    Blonde doesn't sell short on the features. The album has a wide array of iconic artists to help depict the story he's trying to tell including Kornrow Kenny, Andre 3000 (best feature on the album), Beyoncé and Yung Lean. It's easy for me to pick someone like Tory Lanez' album by virtue of being a huge fan and supporting Toronto. But I appreciate game changers and something refreshing and I think Blonde fits the bill perfectly.

    Honorable mentions: A tribe called quest -- We got it from here, Childish Gambino -- Awaken, My Love!, Solange -- A seat at the table

    great post, his arrangements on the album were like cocaine to the hears, I also dug the collab with Andre 3000 -- too much truth in one track
