So with Frank finally releasing his second studio album after the longest wait known to man, I was thinking that now may be a good time to have an Ultimate Frank rate, celebrating some of the stunning work of the 28 year old thus far. He has truly become one of the biggest and most hyped stars of modern day R&B and rightly so, but which tracks really get you going? Now it's time to rank your favourites and the highs across his fantastic discography.

Firstly, 'Endless' will not be appearing within the rate due to it being mainly interludes and not being well known enough. On the same rule, any interludes from his discography included will be removed to make the process much simpler and easier. This rate is allowing 2 11's and 2 -1's (if anyone even dares) throughout, as well as half points (although 10.5 will not be included). Obviously I know not everyone will know all of his discography (many may not have heard 'Nostalgia Ultra') but try and rate as many as possible. As 'Blonde' is still very fresh and new I am aware that many people will still be forming solid opinions on the songs so this rate will be staying open for at least a fortnight; whether this will be extended or not will be based on interest levels.

Without further ado, let's get rating!

Since I'll probably give everything a similar score, I'm going to rate the songs relatively.

Nostalgia Ultra

08.0 Novacane
08.5 We All Try
07.5 Songs 4 Women
08.0 Love Crimes
10 There Will Be Tears
08.0 Swim Good
07.0 Dust
07.5 American Wedding
07.5 Nature Feels

Channel ORANGE

10 Thinkin' Bout You
07.0 Sierra Leone
09.5 Sweet Life
10 Super Rich Kids
09.0 Pilot Jones
08.5 Crack Rock
11 Pyramids
09.0 Lost
10 Monks
10 Bad Religion
11 Pink Matter
09.5 Forrest Gump

Blonde

07.5 Nikes
07.0 Ivy
09.0 Pink + White
08.5 Solo

07.5 Self Control
09.0 Nights
08.5 Pretty Sweet
09.0 White Ferrari
08.5 Siegfried

Channel Orange is probably my favourite album ever.

I really wanted to give one of my 11's to 'There Will Be Tears' but I can't deny either 'Pyramids' or 'Pink Matter' an 11 either.

I take it upgrading the number of 11's to 3 is a no-no. kink.gif

What a discography.

Nostalgia Ultra

08.0 Strawberry Swing
09.0 Novacane
10.0 We All Try
08.5 Songs 4 Women
09.0 Love Crimes
09.5 There Will Be Tears
10.0 Swim Good
07.0 Dust
10.0 American Wedding
07.5 Nature Feels

Channel ORANGE

11.0 Thinkin' Bout You
08.0 Sierra Leone
09.0 Sweet Life
09.0 Super Rich Kids
08.5 Pilot Jones
08.5 Crack Rock
11.0 Pyramids
10.0 Lost
09.5 Monks
10.0 Bad Religion
10.0 Pink Matter
10.0 Forrest Gump

Blonde

08.0 Nikes
09.0 Ivy
09.0 Pink + White
08.5 Solo
07.5 Skyline To
10.0 Self Control
09.0 Nights
07.0 Pretty Sweet
08.5 White Ferrari
08.0 Siegfried
09.0 Godspeed
07.5 Futura Free

Not even kidding with my rate for the last half of Channel ORANGE. So wanted to give 'Monks' a 10 as well but didn't want it to appear stupid.

Looking at my rate it is really showing how amazingly consistent he is. For any other artists the scores I have given track by track for 'Blonde' would be amazing but here they look unusually disappointing for such amazing work and one of my favourite albums of the year.

Bumping to see if anyone else wants to get involved.

Only 6 rates doesn't make for that exciting results. C'mon people who made 'Blonde' thread 13 pages.
