Hey I’ve had a terrible day and reading this made me feel better for a brief minute. Being a musician, or more accurately pursuing it, has been incredibly challenging and can often feel futile, but knowing that something I’ve helped create has made this kind of impact on even one person makes me feel like my efforts thus far have been worth it and adds motivation for me to keep going.
Also, really happy you put channel orange on your list. It’s my #1 of the decade and I sometimes feel like I’m like the only living person that not only still adores it, but doesn’t think blonde totally eclipses it.
I also think that CO is Frank's best work
can honestly say I'd be in a much worse place without it, and I'm glad you all took the steps that led you to it's release. and it's not just me yr band has impacted btw, I've gotten some of my friends to listen and love the album too, and I don't plan on ceasing to tell others about it anytime soon.
re: Frank, I listened to Channel Orange pretty late, like I think around the time Endless came out? so I don't have any sort of nostalgia for it over Blonde, but I really enjoy both. I think thematically CO is just something that resonated with me more than Blonde has so far, and I think they're very different but yeah, I also don't think blonde eclipses CO. they're two distinctly excellent albums
It means the world, honestly. Thank you. We’re not a band that’s had much in the way of label support or press/promotion or whatever, so having people who genuinely love us spread the word about us is the main reason we’ve managed to grow.
CO was a huge record for me when it came out for a lot of reasons, and it’s hard to seperate that for sure, but at the same time I do genuinely think aside from that aspect of things that the album is more cohesive and consistent than Blonde is. Not to say I don’t love that record too, I think a lot of Frank’s best work is on it and I listen to them both constantly.
After Moon River I want Frank to make an American Songbook album
yeah, this is probably the same for me, I think the interlude type stuff go a long way to linking the different ideas of Channel Orange -- or separating them as need, I suppose. i also feel like i have to be in a specific mood for Blonde. Blonde also has the distinct disadvantage of being played often at work so while I love it, I hate having the associating with it lol.
yooo this would be so tight, an excellent stop gap between albums. I'd take it for sure
Yeah, I think that’s a big thing for me. The interludes on CO work in the albums favor for me, whereas on Blonde they kinda disrupt the flow too much for my liking, I don’t think I’ll ever like the sequencing on the back half of that album.
Just kind of going off the top of my head in no particular order (I'm sure that I'll be missing a bunch of stuff):
Hotelier - Home, Like NoPlace is There
Hotelier - Goodness
Yellowcard - Self-Titled
Bayside - Killing Time
The Wonder Years - No Closer To Heaven
Lupe Fiasco - Tetsuo & Youth
A Tribe Called Quest - We Got it From Here... Thanks 4 Your Service
Rebelution - Peace of Mind
Kamasi Washington - The Epic
Anti-Flag - American Fall
Wow, that was really hard to narrow down to just 10.

I'm gonna do converge, bon Iver, Jason isbell, Joanna newsome and sturgill Simpson and maybe motion city soundtrack. it's all stuff that stood out to me as stuff I hear about a lot or am passingly familiar with a song or two, or stuff I keep meaning to check out but never got around to
i know all the good music so nothing has changed
Without repeats, no order
The Hotelier - Home Like Noplace Is There
Phoebe Bridgers - Stranger In The Alps
Mount Eerie - Clear Moon
Bon Iver - Bon Iver, Bon Iver
Sigur Ros - Valtari
James Blake - James Blake
The Menzingers - On The Impossible Past
Kendrick Lamar - To Pimp a Butterfly
mewithoutYou - Pale Horses
O’Brother - Endless Light
Fell in love with this album recently, beautiful record
Most underrated Sigur record imo
Whenever, If Ever > Harmlessness
nah, it's not close tbh, harmlessness does everything wie does better
I actually think the highs in Harmlessness are totally superior, but the middle section of Harmlessness is a snooooooozefest
what do you consider the middle section? after ra patera to i can be afraid of everything?
Snoozefest is harsh. im mostly saying that because i feel like the rest of the album is so so strong and then for me there is a noticeable drop off in that run of tracks.
it's weaker but i still think that section is still so so good. we need more skulls? willie? idk, that whole album is still so good
Love every song on Harmlessness. Far superior record than WIE
kinda wild to me that BI,BI beats out 22 for a lot of you
