Twitter Capsule: At times evokes joy, arrogance, and melancholy of making self-consciously cool art. More often feels cocky, under conceived.

VOR:   For all it tips into silliness, self-admiration, and sentimentality, Frank attempts an odd project, evincing more tones and interpretive possibilities as it goes.
