    Remids me of this tune:

    If I heard nothing else but this album and Frank Ocean's nostalgia/ULTRA for the rest of the year, I'd be 100% okay with that.

    Oh, and DJ Quik's upcoming Book Of David album too.

  • this shit is embarrassing

    I like the beat, but those lyrics are corny as shit. This"Novocane".

    Tell me who the hell this group is? I'm still not sure if I love it or hate it, but there's somethign strangely compelling about that video clip.

  • The album has been on constant repeat this week. Such a great debut! Wasn't that fond of it at first but the whole thing grew on me!

    Fav track right now:



    I think Frank Ocean is great but Weeknd is just a little bit better. Better lyrics, vocals and production!

    I ride for the Weeknd release. Actually prefer the first half of that song posted (House Of Balloons).

    I'm late to the party and it looks like the Frank Ocean release is not available to download anymore...anyone got a link?

    Was introduced to them via the track below which is bananas dope IMO, more beat wise than lyrically speaking.
    Rest of the album is lacking IMO - but they got mad potential. Heard that 40-whatevs (Drake's producer dude) was somehow involved?

    So you're mad 'cause it took The Dream longer to be as popular? Mmmmmkay.

    For the record, The Weeknd is one dude. Not a group.

    Singing Ryan Leslie > The Weeknd > The Dream >>>>>> Rapping Ryan Leslie

    Yeah I did. I never bought into the whole "The Dream is a musical genius" mantra a lot of you dudes subscribe to. It's rare that I find a modern R&B album that I can listen to over and over to right off the bat. Frank Ocean and The Weeknd - and Ryan Leslie a few years ago - just so happened to come out of nowhere and impress the hell out of me, moreso than The Dream ever did. As you can see, I wasn't the only one impressed. As far as an indie rock influence, I don't hear it and I'm not quite sure what that means other than an attempt to discredit it or whatever. Regardless of whatever influence it has, it's good.

    But you know, to each their own and all that good stuff.

    why didnt u say so?? R&B for people who dont like R&B

    Haha, I shoulda known...

    Anyway thanks for the heads-up on Dream, I'm downloading now.



  • I'm a bit tired of the weeknd - frank ocean comparisions. Both is r'n'b-ish but they both got something different going on.

    Btw, did you guys see that House of Balloons is a part of a trilogy. Part two called "thursday" is dropping soon

  • Hotsauce84Hotsauce84 8,451 Posts
    I don't think Frank Ocean and The Weeknd sound anything like each other. I just use their names together a lot 'cause I discovered them within a month of each other and they're both something that I thoroughly enjoyed from the first listen.

    Deej, I think it's more like "R&B for people who don't like overproduced, glossy R&B." For me, at least.

    Yeah, i was the one that said that and here is why.

    I too got into both around the same time ( a few monthes ago).
    Both of those songs are kind of sung/rapped super masochistic hedonistic songs in a very blase manner under 80's influenced synths/samples.

    that being said, i like both alot...and yes they are different.

    comparison makes sense to me even though they don't sound alike really. hipsteR&B.

    I don't hear it. What qualifies it as hipster to you? I can *kinda* see where you're coming from with The Weeknd, not because of the music but because of the way it's presented and the blog love and maybe even the cover art but Frank Ocean? Nah.

    I know blipsters, I've kicked it with blipsters, I've even been in love with a female blipster, and Frank Ocean, sir, is no blipster.

    Oh don't think I'm trying to take anything away from Ocean -- dude's dope. Love the mixtape. That question definitely opens up a massive can of worms, in regard to how I relate it to being "hipster", that would most likely go back to the dissection of the word we did on here a couple years back. It really just boils down to the aesthetic / feel of the projects. I'm sure it comes across as short-sighted / ignorant, but that term (hipster) really encompasses a vast majority of the musical efforts being put forth today from today's youth, that I'm seeing. It's my inner-old codger getting the best of me, I suppose. Just from looking at the cover art work of both and judging the material, it's sort of the sense/feel I get from both.

    What's great about Frank Ocean, though, is that certainly might not be the case for many, though. It's pretty open, probably why it's getting the great feedback that it is.
