No way will Voodoo go into any history book. Voodoo was not very good at all. It has some bright spots, but overall it's boring. Too much bass and too many voice overlays. You can't even tell what he's saying for half the damn album. Too may songs have the same tempo, same heavy bass, same sound, & same feel. The drums are too similar and the album is kinda flat.
Africa, Spanish Joint, GreatDayInTheMorning, and Untitled(give credit to Prince & the video for that one anyway) are the best cuts on the album. Besides that, it's monotonous. J_bhadra was right when he said that no one (common folk, not lonely horny groupies or family members) is bangin, or has/is been talkin high about Voodoo.
If you mention Erykah's album, folks are sayin they love it, when Lauryn's piece dropped everybody was straight diggin it, no one is/has ever really said stuff like that about Voodoo. Except mostly women fans who just wanted to see his naked-ass, and the jockriders on this site who use Okayplayer as an identity because they lack their own.
The album was not terrible, but it was by no means great or even good. Overall the shit was kinda boring. He better not wait a long time before he comes out with something else or he will soon be officially black history.
And my god, how in the hell can anyone even try to compare D'Angelo to Prince. That's so ridiculous it's funny. D'Angelo made one good album (Brown Sugar) and an overhyped mediocre one (Voodoo) and the groupies wanna compare him to a cat who has been creating and composing some of the best music you will ever hear in your damn life, for decades. No wonder D & ?uest are fans, they know who the real is. D'Angelo isn't a bad entertainer, but please, create at least 3 solid albums that the people (not your internet groupies) actually feel before you even think about comparing yourself to Prince. D'Angelo or Prince, what a joke. That's like comparing Jordan to Matt Geiger.
