Repetitive Songs And Near-Silent Lyrics Ruin A Previously Good Artist,
This review is from: Voodoo (Audio CD)
"Voodoo" takes a step away from D'Angelo's previous work, "Brown Sugar" and, unfortunately, focuses less on what made the album successful. The second album fills itself out with a repeated bassline and drumbeat, while D'Angelo whispers vocals. This blend creates a hazy sound that draws its listener into the music, for a while.
The songs themselves, however, venture too long on the same sound and begin to blend in quickly, with the next track being hardly distinctive from the last. By result the album quickly falls apart with disappointment that it could have been half the length and double the result.
"Voodoo" is a poor effort because of too much excess, and a disappointment from an artist who is capable of so much better.
