5.0 out of 5 stars Janelle Monae - The Electric Lady....2013s Sonic Masterpiece..., 10 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Electric Lady (Audio CD)
In so many ways The ArchAndroid was a debut that raised the game....hearing janelle Monae reall ydebut hard with that album the summer of 2010 was a breath of fresh air and it made impact...and truly became a modern masterpeice...how could she follow it up...and after having it a day only....The Electric Lady is another masterpiece in the making....the sonics, the messages, the flow of the songs...yeah Miss Monae has outdone heself again and in so many ways she deserves the worldwide attention and acclaim she needs i mean the material here showcases she NEEDS to be out there moreso than many of her "contemporaries".

The concepts, the idea of androids used as a social propaganda and the underlining themes across it is so mature and dealt with delicately and with humour too...the fusion of the SOul, Funk, Neo sounds continued from her debut...meshed with new Punkier sounds and Electronica vibes as well as her signature Orchestral/Classical music backing...and a Neon Psychedelia there.

This album is a beautiful follow up and truly is a LEAP ahead....not to mention the collaborations on here with Solange, Erykah Badu, Miguel, Esperanza Spalding and the one Formerly Known As Prince ;) delivering a genius piece reminiscent of his collaboration with Madonna on her masterpiece Like a Prayer album and his work with muse Sheila E. Wonderful echoes back and pushing forward.

10/10 modern class act! Well worth investing.
