The prevailing line on Frank Ocean, the R&B-minded Odd Future affiliate, is that he's the one most likely to experience a mainstream breakthrough, thanks to making music that could maybe be played on the radio. I'm not sure I 100 percent buy that, but I do know this: Domo Genesis and MellowHype haven't been reviewed as extensively as Frank was this Sunday by Jon Caramanica in the New York Times. Ocean's Nostalgia, Ultra was reviewed, along with a discussion of his label woes. It's an interesting read, and it's cool that this is one of the few articles about Odd Future that doesn't mention the violence in the group's lyrics. You can read it here.
