Rightfully so. It is an incredible piece of expression from start to end. If you haven’t listened to it yet, please do, you won’t regret it.

“channel ORANGE” isn’t just another album, or just another album trailed by a cloud of hype and ludicrous expectations—this album is bringing people to a stop and making them listen closely, sparking e-mail threads and text-message chains. Listeners are tweeting lyrics from the album as if they were scripture, and a conversation is growing, independent of what critics are or are not saying. - Sasha Frere-Jones
