Growing stronger with each play, this album sees Me'Shell Ndegeocello back to a more soulful, less mournful approach than the previous two albums and still proving to be one of the most unique and outstanding musicians of a generation.

Meshell Returns To Truly Explore Her Realm Of The Music Eclectic 4 Jun 2014
By Andre S. Grindle - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Bassist/vocalist/songwriter Meshell Ndegeocello is one of those artists of whom I admire her musicality while occasionally questioning her creative motivations. Especially in the case with an artist with as strong a creative vision and aestetic as Meshell? There is a slight tendency to be just a little bit too musically eclectic. Sometimes she is "alternative" simply for its own sake. After finding her 2007 release The World Has Made Me the Man of My Dreams downbeat and unsatisfying in the extreme? I simply lost interest in Meshell's music. All the while still admiring her paying tribute to Nina Simone among other things. But never purchased a new album of hers after that. Until now. Earlier this week while online,I noticed that NPR was doing a live stream of this album. While no way to get a full impression,I did really like what I hear and decided to give this new album and Meshell another chance. This time around? I have to say I am not at all disappointed.

"Friends" opens the album with a fan faring,digitized electronic jazz/funk treatise on the old statement of "with friends like that,who needs enemies"-building the heart back up from a sense of deep mistrust. "Tom" is a melodically tender gospel/soul inflected mid-tempo song with a smooth high bass line and a mild early 70's Willie Mitchell type production. "Good Day Bad" is an acoustically oriented heartland style folk/rocker while "Forget My Name" is an slow crawling dub reggae style piece that actually strips down the usually heavily produced subgenre. The title song combines dub with a strong funky element right out of the early 80's Compass Point studios approach-again with a strong jazzy instrumental flavor. "Continuous Performance" keeps building on a spiky sounding bass/guitar riff that builds into a rather mainstream pop/rock style chorus. "Shopping For Jazz" comes to terms with the jazz/folk/rock fusion while "Conviction",one of my favorites here mixes reverbed bass and guitar for a very Rolling Stones approach to disco-ready funk/rock. "Folie A Deux" discovers the blues in a similar instrumental context while the quiet "Choices",the slow Ska influence of "Modern Time and the probing psychedelia of "American Rhapsody" end the album.

While continuing to follow in Meshell's path of pursuing her own musical approach,everything she does on this album comes together and seems to work. Her emphasis on exploring new ways in which to project dub reggae is particularly interesting. Reggae is a musical genre that can be easily limiting. Unless one is very creative in terms of being able to expand it beyond its own inherent confines-which Meshell is able. Not only that but she also takes on a number of underexplored funk/rock/jazz hybrids that were first hinted at by everyone from Joni Mitchell,The Rolling Stones and Bill Withers. And the best part of this album? Something I've noticed that's been a bit lacking in her recent work? Is that Meshell takes the time out to rediscover her own variation on the Afro-Futurist funk/soul/jazz hybrid sound that she helped to champion when she first came out in the early/mid 1990's with Plantation Lullabies and Peace Beyond Passion. This side of her musical personality always seemed to be a better platform from which to extend her musical talents than the sometimes morbid alternative rock variations of her post millennial music. And this album shows the possibility that the different sides of Meshell's musical face are coming together into her own coherent art.

Don't waste your time trying to figure out what it is, just be glad it is 4 Jun 2014
By J. Horne - Published on Amazon.com

You can't define what she does musically - but it transcends so much of what if offered up today. When night falls, this collection climbs the walls and passes the borderline, a temporary camp around a colorful fire...you should buy and listen repeatedly.

Don't Be Afraid To Take The Journey With Her......... 20 Jun 2014
By darrell johnson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Let me say that Meshell is my all time favorite artist. She touches a part of me that no other artist ( with the exception of Prince ) can reach. As diverse as her catalog is, I can always find something to love about each release. It's hard to pick one that stands above the rest as my absolute favorite. I tend to have more affection for her jazzier or jazz/funk arrangements. With that being said, her output in recent years has been somewhat of a departure from that sound. Starting with the Devils Halo release, her music has been more subdued and mature. She has forced me to adapt with her as she has gone through this transition. Once again she does not disappoint! Eclectic, lush, and beautifully played. She challenges the perceptions of both genre and song structure but the end result is always in the end Meshell.....

Favorites: Comet, Come to Me is hypnotic, Shopping for Jazz is groovy, Conviction is classic "Meshell", and Folie a Deux is haunting.........Enjoy

Comet Came To Me 4 Jun 2014
By Joe Nathan - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
MeShell Ndegeocello is a rare talent and artist. She defies definition. She isn't rock, she isn't pop, she isn't hip hop, she isn't jazz, she isn't blues... she's all of it and more. After Devil's Halo (which I thought was fantastic), Comet, Come To Me just adds to a stellar discography that started with Plantation Lullabies and hopefully won't end any time soon.
