R&B just doesn't do anything for me. In most other genres there's a couple albums here and there that stand out and above the rest...but with R&B even the supposedly great ones just bore me.
At the very least, if you've listened to Pyramids, I mean you have to admit that song is stellar. I don't know how anybody could listen to that song the whole way through and not name it as a classic song right off the bat. It covers so much ground and is so crisp. It's one of the best songs I've heard in a long time. Mr. Ocean is R&B so if that doesn't do it for you, he won't do it for you....I however love rap and r&b, and this album is great for me because of that. Most of the popular music these days doesn't do it for me either...just sounds like effeminate guys whispering to themselves.
