The Electric Lady is perhaps not as instant as the Archandroid, and the tracks don't gel as well together but who cares about any of that when the tracks are so good? The collaboration with Prince - Give Em What They Love is the highlight here but there is not one filler track on here and Janelle proves herself to be a stylistic chameleon here. The intro which starts off as an almost spaghetti western theme tune and then evolves into a big orchestral score is a good indication of whats to come. Highly recommended, album of the year and I just hope she gets the mainstream recognition she deserves - a breath of fresh air, both musically and image wise, compared to almost every young female pop act I can think of.

I have been looking forward to the release of The Electric Lady literally for the past few months. How would it compare to The ArchAndroid? Had I hyped up the genius of Janelle Monáe so much that this was never going to live up to my level of excitement?

I needn't have worried.

The Electric Lady manages to add to the mythology of Cyndi Mayweather and the world Monáe created with Suites 1-3 of this pop symphony, while also being filled with infectious melodies and meaningful lyrics. At 19 tracks and 67 minutes long it doesn't skimp on quantity, and the quality is as high as ever. Highlights include Givin Em What They Love (a sublime and sexy opening number featuring Prince, of all people), Q.U.E.E.N. (promoting self-acceptance in a much more glamorous and exciting way than anything by Lady Gaga - says a confirmed Gaga-fan), Electric Lady (so good it's contagious). In fact the only song I dislike on the album is Ghetto Woman - the vocal line is nice but the backing seems like a jumble. However, disliking one track out of nineteen is a pretty good ratio.

If you enjoyed The ArchAndroid, you'll enjoy this. If you enjoy soul, funk, pop, r&b, or - indeed - any kind of good music at all, you'll appreciate this.

To sum up: The Electric Lady is the best £6.49 I ever spent and, without doubt, the best album I've heard since The ArchAndroid, it is fantastic and I urge anyone to buy it.

Delicious, diverse, unique. It's only the irritating and unfunny interludes that let this CD down. Janelle Monae is a very talented lady.

Can Janelle Monae match 2011's masterful "The ArchAndroid"? The answer is too right she can. Ms Monae may cut a diminutive figure but has a talent as big as a continent and the best funk songwriting credentials this side of Prince. The purple genius is also to be found on this new album "The Electric Lady" crooning along with the Atlanta chanteuse on the blues funk of "Given them all my love". It is one of many sterling collaborations on a record which is a daring and massively inventive throughout. It places Monae in pole position when it comes to producing wildly commercial psychedelic funk pop. Hover your needle over any part of the 19 tracks on "The Electric Lady" and rich rewards flow. From the joyous rush of "Dance Apocalyptic" full of pounding rhythms and zombie references- to the nasty funk of Q.U.E.E.N featuring Eryeka Badu - this new album is a veritable jukebox of potential hits.

Again underpinning the album is Monae's playful concept of the personality of Cindy Mayweather her messianic android alter-ego. If you like that sort of thing then fine, but frankly it's the music that counts. Infectious is the key word. The classic pop of "We were Rock n Roll" absolutely defies you to sit still. The joy de vivre of tracks such as the summer fun of "It's code" demands a compulsory smile with Monae often sounding like the young Michael Jackson. Things slow nicely on the eerie ballad "Look into my eyes", while on "Victory" she shows what an impeccable soul talent she is with the best vocal on the album. One small negative are the DJ interludes spaced throughout the album, which you will either love or press fast forward in high irritation.

I've been a bit out the music scene for the last couple of years because I haven't found much to go gaga over. I've found my reason to start listening once again, this album is just fabulous all the way through so much depth and excitement and raw energy spews from Ms Monae's vocals as well as clean yet surprising production. It's even better to see her live which I was fortunate to get a chance last week. A true artist on all forms. This will be a classic in many years to come.

Thank Ms Monae for restoring my faith in music.

I didn't think anything could top Janelle Monae's debut album the Archandroid, but somehow she has done it! This is very much an album of two parts, the first suite is a guest-star laden collection of hits (and future hits) with some funky grooves and synths reminiscent of very early Prince (who is one of the guest musicians). The second suite is more of a slow burner, and the influence of Stevie Wonder shines through in the jazzy chord progressions of several tracks, in particular Ghetto Woman. All in all, a wonderful album which leaves me eager with anticipation for Ms Monae's next album!
