Once again - greatness from the bald headed diva!!
Me'Shell is truly an understated genius - who has surprisingly managed to go all this time relatively unnoticed. This album combines the best of ndegeocello, fantastic bass licks from the talented bassist, controversial yet hard hitting lyrics, the low sensuous alto voice, and brilliant musicianship. Cameo's from Marcus Miller - adding his touch of bass and clarinet, Caron Wheeler (remember her from Soul II Soul), Talib Kweli, and yes the ever present Missy Elliot who's production of "pocketbook" surprisingly manages to fit in with the rest of the album.
Why other colleagues in the "organic soul" field haven't jumped at the opportunity to work with Me'Shell is beyond me, as is the question as to why she remains largely underground.
If you're new to her music this is the best CD to start your collection with!

MeShell NdegeoCello is an awesomely talented musician. Beautiful voice and able to let her bass sing. I only discovered her only this year and ordered all her albums. The best decision I made, really. Make no mistake, this is intelligent stuff. 'Cookie' is a joy to listen at with many layers to discover time after time. From Raw/funky/swing to sensitive/ sad. It goes deep with "Akel Dama" which is impressive and so sadly true. To me, this song sets her apart from other (famous) artists.

Heard one track at a friends and thought I'd give it a go but it's not my thing at all, too much swearing, and too much rapping for my tastes.
