5.0 out of 5 stars One of the finest albums ever released!, 13 Aug. 2009
By 
This review is from: Voodoo (Audio CD)
This is one of my absolute favourite albums. In this age of soulless processed synthetic music (much akin to processed food) this organic masterpiece by D'Angelo is musical nourishment for the soul.

"Voodoo" is an album of real depth both in a literal sense (the bass and low end being incredibly well recorded and present) and in its wide range of influences (Marvin, Prince, Sly, Hip Hop, traditional African music, latin jazz plus much more), which D'Angelo and his incredibly talented caste of collaborators manage to transcend and include perfectly.

If you are reading this review, deliberate no more - just add this to your basket and hit the checkout. If you are used to conventional song structures and catchy melodies, it might take a bit of getting into. But like an impressionist or abstract painting, if you just chill with it and keep an open mind (or open ears!), everything will come into focus and you'll appreciate the genius, sexiness, soulfulness and sheer funkiness of this meisterwerk!

Thanks for reading and enjoy!

PS. Recommended further listening: Mama's Gun by Erykah Badu. Although slightly patchier than "Voodoo", the best tracks have that same organic aesthetic (some even share the same Soulquarian production team) and if you haven't heard such tracks "Bag Lady" or "Time's A Wasting", well... ;-)
