Questlove's "10 years ahead of its time" was nonsense
Dec 15th 2014

           way better than Voodoo after 1 listen is trying too hard
Dec 15th 2014

                Why do u feel the need to defend VooDoo so much?
Dec 15th 2014

Dec 15th 2014

Dec 15th 2014

Dec 16th 2014

      Van went full punk and lost me.
Dec 15th 2014

prince does black music fine, when he feels like it.
Dec 15th 2014

I probably should have said Pop Friendly Modern Black Music.
Dec 15th 2014
192
      i'd like that too.
Dec 15th 2014
195
           ask Carlos Santana about making Pop hits as a 50 something
Dec 15th 2014

           i feel prince is fine.
Dec 15th 2014
206
           right on. i'd dig that.
Dec 15th 2014

           you want that old sound, buy the old albums
Dec 15th 2014
207
                agreed.
Dec 15th 2014
216
                I don't want the old sound. I want new music that's good.
Dec 15th 2014
224
                     His new music is fine.
Dec 15th 2014
231
                     Nah man even his most ardent fans don't dig his new material
Dec 15th 2014
235
                          his most ardent fans are fucking insane.
Dec 15th 2014

the mood of the people, namely black america, that explains to the rest of America exactly how we are feeling right now that allows them to relate to us, and d boys from the block to corporate executive brothers, to ratchet hoodrats to Claire Huxtables are all touched by a message of empowerment and encouragement....and their are some singles to get the head bopping and the people dancing?

What if that happened?

D'Angelo Will Unveil New Album 'Black Messiah' at NYC Listening Party

The R&B singer will play the album in its entirety at an event hosted by Nelson George

By Jason Newman | December 12, 2014

After 14 years, numerous false starts and nearly two years of D'Angelo's next album being "99 percent done," the singer will unveil the follow-up to 2000's Voodoo this Sunday.

The R&B singer will play the completed album, Black Messiah, in its entirety at a listening session in New York hosted by writer Nelson George and organized by Red Bull Music Academy and Afropunk.

As Consequence of Sound notes, D'Angelo's manager Kevin Liles shared a mysterious teaser trailer to promote the album.
George and the singer sat down in May at New York's Brooklyn Museum for a public discussion. When the topic of "neo-soul" came up, D'Angelo hinted that he was embarking on a new musical direction with his own music. "I respect for what it is, but anytime you put a name on something, you just put it in a box," said D'Angelo. "You want to be in a position where you can grow as an artist. You never want to be told, 'Hey, well, you're a neo-soul artist.' Right now, I'm not. We're going someplace else."

D'Angelo also referenced his return to the spotlight, which began with a triumphant covers set at Bonnaroo 2012. Since then, whispers of a new album have appeared periodically.

Shortly after Bonnaroo, Questlove told Rolling Stone that D'Angelo had recorded nearly 30 tracks at Electric Lady, the same New York studio where the singer cut Voodoo. "He is about to take a radical 180 turn with this record," Questlove said at the time. "It's going to throw people off the same way that Prince's Dirty Mindthrew his R&B fanbase off. In the past few years, he's discovered Bowie and Led Zeppelin, the Beatles, Pet Sounds, Captain Beefheart and Zappa." At the time, Questlove said that the musician was experimenting with guitar arrangements and creating his own keyboard sounds.

In January 2013, Questlove told Billboard that D'Angelo's album was "99 percent done." "I would not be far off by saying this is probably my generation's version of Sly There's a Riot Goin' On," the drummer said. "It's potent. It's funky. It's an extremely hard pill to swallow.

"It's going to take you about 10 years to digest this record," he added. "Totally brilliant. Just the way this society works with music...being able to judge if something is a classic after the first listen, you can do that after 30 seconds on this. And the fact that we started this record in 2004, and it still sounds like it came out five years from now, it is a testament to the timelessness of it."

In a June interview, Liles said that the Bonnaroo show inspired D'Angelo to want to finish the album. "He very bluntly put it, 'Kev, the studio and the stage: that's my lifeblood. Now that I've touched it again, now that I see it again, I wanna be sure that the baby I'm about to have – the album – that I take it to the point where it's all it can be.'"

and keep up w/the soulless excuse for what is called R&B music today

Whether he can pull these disparate sounds all together to create something classic remains to be seen but I'm eager to hear if he can and will cop that ish in a heartbeat

Basically, like Duke said there are only two types of music, just hoping it's on the good side but it have no reason to believe otherwise.

75. "this is totally accessible imo"
In response to Reply # 73


  

          

Dont conflate the corporate controlled playlists of radio, with accessibility. Songs dont break because of accessibility, they break because they fit in with marketing trends. We've been here long enough to have had this conversation 1000 times and its worse now than it was in 2000. None of the music that brought us here 15 years ago would get ANY play on contemporary radio. Not TFA, not LWFC, not Reflection Eternal, not Lets Get Free, not Voodoo...none of it.

This is a funky, low key yet swinging, track that should have a lot of appeal across demographics.

Something i could slide up to a girl to at a bar, or that my dad could play in his ride.

I know you have talked about how much you like Disclosure, and Im right there with you. But the only reason a Chicago House / UK Garage revival album popped was the fact that EDM had been cresting below the level of corporate radio for like 5 years.

87. "OkayReview:"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

http://www.okayplayer.com/news/dangelo-black-messiah-lp-release-review.html

Ho. Lee. Shit. I don’t know if I ever imagined I’d be in the position to actually tell someone that the D’Angelo had finally delivered on everyone’s except his own promise to redeem soul music wholly and forever with the follow-up to his turn-of-the-century masterpiece Voodoo. Well, good people of the Okay realm and abroad, it is with exultant joy and humility that I can say the day is here. And it’s every bit as sweet as I always dreamed it would be.What do you think?

It’s not like we weren’t forewarned or anything. If the last 14 years of our lives have proven anything, it’s that every 7-8 months or so someone you know (mostly Questlove) will chime in with the “Oh, I heard that new D from my boy who’s engineering the record. Shit is crazy!” whispers to set the jones in. But it wasn’t just Questo’s chirps and nudges that put the bug in us. Back in 2010, before the initial European tour, before the musical magnificence that was the Brothers In Arms tour, before Russell Elevado criminally teased us with 6-second clips from the studio, even before that spacey P-funked-out cover of Sound Garden’s “Black Hole Sun” mysteriously surfaced, OKP alum DJ Brainchild sat with the man himself and heard the words straight from the source :What do you think?

“I just want them to know that I’m coming. That’s all. I’m in the kitchen and I’m cooking up something real nice.”What do you think?

And now we’re faced with what once seemed virtually unimaginable; a full-fledged answer to 14 years of prayers. Who would’ve thought that a man that once claimed to be so detached from the digital landscape could manage to out-Beyoncé Beyoncé? Familiar Soulquarians like Questlove, Q-Tip and newcomer Kendra Foster make appearances (especially in the album’s writing credits). But what’s to say for this new, prism? This masterful blend of classic and contemporary soul, funk and blues, forged by years of refinement.What do you think?

Listen, I’m not even trying to put forth that this is the end all, be all album of our lives or that the rest of the industry should just pack up their shit and quit But as a mid-twenties D’liever who took to Voodoo like an inmate to 5% Nation after high-school and got through his first years of college reading Questo’s Voodoo Diaries over and over again, this shit is monumental.What do you think?

Lucky for you and me and the rest of the damn world, our very own Editor-In-Chief Eddie “STATS” was amongst the “first to worship” at the ultra-exclusive listening party, which took place in NYC just a few hours ago. You can read his thorough track-by-track review of the album as it was being played for the very first time below. Just be sure that come midnight you’ve got your card out, ’cause Black Messiah waits for no man or woman. The 15-years-in-the making follow-up to Voodoo hits iTunes at 12:00AM EST with CD and 2xLP vinyl release coming next week. Get your first taste of D’Angelo’s finally realized resurgence with a companion script below and check back at midnight for the link. May D be with you, good people.What do you think?

“Ain’t That Easy” comes in with an echoey ping-pong-crack snare, like a ball bouncing off the table and being exploded by a gunshot. The underlying Funkadelic blues groove is a recognizable progression from Voodoo’s anthemic “Chicken Grease,” but has a harder, darker edge both in the beat itself and the raucous guitar lick for D’s falsetto to ricochet off. The frenetic six-string work (which according to Questo is all D) tips its hat to Eddie Hazel on all levels. “1000 Deaths” commences with the preacher reciting the Bible’s description of Christ and a groove that knocks like Funkadelic‘s hard-nosed, loose-lipped theatrical rock tailored to a the finely-tuned, yet purposely slopped styles of J Dilla. It’s All held together by bomb squad-ish black noize sonics; a tribute to engineer and long-time friend Russ Elevado, showing that dissonant elements create a whole greater than the tracks. What do you think?

“The Charade” came to life with a spacey guitar intro — again distinct Hazel meets “Diamonds + Pearls dreamscape type ish — made spacier by backwards masking. But D’s unmistakable falsetto resolves the psychedelia into a sad soulful groove, while the claps in the beat recall church service or a ’60s boogaloo track. “Sugah Daddy” (which premiered in the wee hours of the morning) is a Harlem Globetrotter-esque hand-jive beat ala “Sweet Georgia Brown,” strutting (at time hilariously) as the funkiest shit you’ve ever heard with touches of Roy Hargrove‘s horn composing wizardry slathered all over.What do you think?

String adagios with tape noise and barely audible voices open “Really Love,” the album’s halftime lullaby. Spanish guitar comes in and we are officially in Desperado country, but the strings resolve into a pizzicato groove with post-Dilla slow banging clap-on/clap-off beat, unclear how the parts will resolve until D’s voice says “When you call my name…” and the emotion brings all the parts together with that walking bass line. Kinda like Jay Dee and The Roots’ “Dynamite” in slow(er) motion, evoking a more wistful mood and capping off Side A with a bubbly improvisation.What do you think?

Side B is truly the b-sides. Where the former is comprised of practically all single-status cuts, the flip is made up of deeper and somewhat darker cuts, socially sharp and politically poignant. “Back In The Future (Part I)” reestablishes that D’s signature is falsetto ad walking bass, continuing the cosmic feel that’s permeated throughout the record and features more lilts of string arrangements. “Till It’s Done (Tutu)” features big drums from Questo and psych-rock guitar through-a-window-fan-warble. Or is it D imitating guitar with a rhodes as he’s known to do? With Miss Foster on dirge-like vocals, the song ends on a strangely open-ended phrase.What do you think?

“Prayer” has a weird and haunted, but somehow goofy synth-scape with drunken drums. Very Prince ala Sign O The Times or “Annie Christian.” The end of the track piques with what is easily D’s illest guitar freakout yet: something like “Frantic Moment” meets “Let’s Go Crazy.”What do you think?

“Betray My Heart” opens with temple chimes and a tinny guitar groove, underpinned by clockwork rimshots and Hargrove’s horns talking wah-wah rhodes or most of the song in a wordless conversation, ending on D’s equally wordless croon. “The Door” features a slow-knocking beat and whistle at it’s base. The guitar work is so Dixieland it’s almost Leon Redbone, almost Doobie Broothers even. But funky as fuq.What do you think?

“Back In The Future (Part II)” fades up right where Part 1 left us, but quickly gives the drummer some, while D quietly catches the spirit in the background. Hi-hats sizzle on the album’s pleading closer “Another Life,” announcing a huge piano vamp. Sitar licks bring the vibe of Smokey Robinson or Chondelles pure doo-wop stylings. D’s voice here recalls Ecstasy-era Junie Morrison, as if the full history of black music is contained within it (which some critics have described as a narrow range.) The drums gets drunker while the changes on the piano fill get bigger and louder, taking us higher and higher until it’s over.What do you think?

After listening to the album I enjoyed it much more than Voo Doo. What's the big deal? I'm not allowed to? It has better replay value for me I listened to it like four times in a row VooDoo didn't hit me like that.

For me, the album gets better with each track. I am sure I will like it the more I listen to it. It does have a Sly Stone vibe to it...

i can tell those albums apart the way mother cats can distinguish similar looking kittens.
yes, they are different and have their own unique personalities.

but to outside observers, they're the same.

I still have to sit with it for a while to give it my true verdict, but even aesthecially, this could iniatate a true shift.... if we allow it to.

But if it's judged on the basis of not being a Brown Sugar or an album of just Send It On's or Untitled's, the boat will be sadly missed.

My question is how patient are people able to allow themselves to be with music in 2014/2015?

Am I the only one whothinks he's hiding his vocals? If they aren't distorted, they're so layered and filtered, or he's mumbling, and it's pressed so deep into the music that it's distracting.

I'm only on the first spin,but this is everything that annoyed me on Spanish Joint turned up 1000x

The music is solid, and it's not too far away from voodoo. Vocally is way too fast away and less confident than Brown sugar.

Maybe I'll love it more after more spins.

He seems to be going for very stylized vocals for most of the album. However, we've heard him sing like half of these songs live. So, we know he's still got his chops.

Was confident while recording.


Even if he was, and it's stylized, it's over done, and garbled. Doit here and there, but every song?

As a person who enjoys that dissonance in his funk, I'm cool with it, but I can completely understand how it could be off-putting. It kind of falls in the everything ain't for everybody category. I just don't think it's a confidence thing as much it was an artistic choice. A pretty bold one, which means some will dig some won't.

Personally, I'd totally dig it, if he SANG most songs, and left 1000 deaths distorted. It would stand out more.

This song gave me chills when it got to the end just thinking about how long its been between albums and how the odds were against him bring this level of music back...


He really cleared the bar with this one...

and i didn't dig it. but he didn't perform much from the first 3 albums - the show was focused on the newer material and i wasn't familiar w/it plus the sound was so different than what i'd come to expect from him that i couldn't get w/it.

Not saying he was influenced by that record or Van
But I was trying to figure out what other record made me feel this way

Van is underrated as hell but that's a whole 'nother subject

I haven't isolated myself with it completely, but I will. He certainly has gone to Prince's school of vocal arrangements. He's a marginal singer but anyone thinking he's supposed to sound like Luther Vandross is stupid.

Even he knows he's a marginal singer. There are numerous singers that have better voices but his MUSIC is outstanding. His voice is good enough and I already know what he sounds like live so my credibility can't be questioned. Aligning someone's personal preferences with credibility is rather stupid in and of itself. Sisqó has a better voice but I wouldn't stay up past midnight to buy his MUSIC.

Your credibility can be questioned and it is right now, because by no stretch of the imagination is D a marginal singer. That's like saying Ornette Coleman is a marginal saxophonist b/c he does avant grade shit. The mastery one's medium is precisely what allows an artist to stray from conventions. From just about any technical standpoint (tone, timbre, pitch, phrasing), barring enunciation, D is far from marginal. It's not even about personal preference, he's from a purely technical standpoint an awesome singer who can emote the fuck out of a lyric. For you to pull Sisqo as your example tells me how disqualified you are to have this discussion.

You're talking to someone who's played the sax for 32 years. Trust me...your response wasn't impressive. I pulled Sisqo to prove my point. D's voice has limited range for a vocalist and if you can't hear that this back and forth is pointless. Sisqo's vocal range gives him the ability to sing almost any style but his personal taste makes his music trash. The point - D's musicianship dwarfs his vocal ability unlike most artist who can only sing well. Pure and simple...his range is limited. That in no way discredits him as an artist. Bob Dillon can't sing either...

If you've truly been studying music that long then you know range is only one factor...although, D's vocal range, especially his falsetto, is pretty impressive and it's on display throughout this album, which further tells me you don't know what the hell you're talking about.

You follow a long line of bitches on here that get all up in arms when someone's preferences doesn't match their own. D's voice...ISN'T my preference. If I could wake up with someone's voice, it would be Otis Redding because that's MY preference. D sings the way he does because his range has limits. It not a knock on his music...just an observation and once again, you're too caught up in what YOU prefer to see the difference.

However, you're trying to pass your opinion off as fact when by all objective criteria, barring enunciation, D is far from a marginal singer. You can't dispute me on any legitimate basis, which is why you're retreating to name-calling. You don't have to like the guy, but you're making baseless statements about vocals that you can't back up. Do your thing, though. I see your tactics, deflect when you can't present a real argument.

In response to Reply # 326


  

          

I stated my opinion of him being a marginal singer with masterful musicianship (the latter not express but implied). YOU...with your hurt butt took my opinion personal and questioned MY credibility. Which also means that YOU are taking someone's opinion against your own preferences and instead of just stating you disagree...you attacked me. So I attacked you right back. Go look at the other person who didn't agree with me but DIDN'T insult me. I took that and kept it moving. So YES, I'm name calling because you went bitch on me. Analyze THAT ho!

I don't go there unless you do so don't act like a pussy when I snark back!

In response to Reply # 374


  

          

It is an observable thing. There are objective ways you can determine his ability as a singer (e.g. tone, range, pitch, etc.). The only thing you presented as an example of D as a marginal singer is saying he has limited range, yet this nigga is hitting high notes all over this album with zero assistance from autotune, melodyne or any other digital processing. Marginal singers cannot do what D'Angelo does. That's not an opinion it's an observable fact. That you can't admit that or present any sort of coherent argument to dispute shows that you have no credibility and therefore your opinion on the matter is utterly meaningless.

I love D'Angelo. His vocal range "sweet spot" is small. He works the hell out of that limited range though. And comes with great melodies and harmonies. Saying he's a "marginal singer" might be overselling your intended point though. I feel Omar from the UK is even less of a singer but I like him as a well.

Ps when he does covers is when you realise it the most.

My constant complaint of Prince is that he has utterly divorced himself from Modern Black Music and sounds lost in his own world of funk that no one is interested in.

To me this sounds totally uninterested in anything that is on the radio, reaches back to classic sound AND creates something completely new and fresh sounding. I love it.

it's always been that way.
also, ppl are still interested in prince's brand of funk.

ask Bruno mars about it.
don't believe him? just watch.

192. "I probably should have said Pop Friendly Modern Black Music. "
In response to Reply # 185


  

          

His Funk is definitely Black Music. It's just not that interesting. Bruno Mars, or Mark Ronson, is taking the most interesting elements of Black Funk and making it Pop friendly.

You'll hate it but would love Mark Ronson to go into the studio with Prince and keep him focused.

In response to Reply # 192


  

          

but prince won't do it, like ever.

prince is in prince world, and always has been.
we're talking about a guy that turned down Maurice White
to produce is first album in 1979.

when prince was a nobody and Maurice White was a legend.
the odds of him letting anybody produce him now are 0.

i get your point though.

yr old man. that Supernatural album he made. why should Prince make a record like that?

Prince w/modern young Pop producers featuring guest roles from modern Pop entertainers. for what?

Prince had plenty Pop success 20 to 30 yrs ago making music in his own style that didn't sound much like what was going on in mainstream music at the time.

he's got nothing left to prove on that accord. he's already done it. why do it again? so we can re-live OUR youth?

fuck you.

he's had an amazing career and ppl still dig what he's doing.
but i would like to hear what prince would sound like if there were some other voices in the room.

prince would still sound like prince, but it'd be an interesting experiment
to hear him in the studio with Rick Rueben or mark ronson or whoever.

they don't even have to touch a knob.
just be there and have prince talk to them about ideas and have then suggest some.

*i'd* like to hear what would come out.

but i agree-- prince's career is fine.

In response to Reply # 224


  

          

I have no use for it, but it's perfectly listenable.
We all want prince to continue to innovate,
which is a lot to ask from one person.

In the 80s he came up with Dirty Mind - Sign of the Times
(most of them have new sounds that were different from what came before.)

Not to mention the stuff he did for The Time.

Not to mention one offs for pop acts like the Bangles.

And then in the 90s, he still had a pop presence.

And he's still going. The stuff isn't innovative, but it's fine.


I don't know what ppl want from prince.
Well, i do.

But the truth is this is one person.
Most legends have a golden era that last for 10 years.
Princes golden era was 10 years that got the work of 20 years out of one person.

I mean...

his latest stuff is fine. it's good.
Not 80s prince good, but damn.


He is only 1 person.

In response to Reply # 231


  

          

Prince recently said most of the fans who come out to his shows ONLY want to hear his old stuff...and that it took him awhile to accept that - I don't think Prince has gained a lot of new fans post "Graffiti Bridge" (<---his last really good album imo)

Questlove said he and Q-Tip use to ask him why doesn't he create the music wants from him or why won't he work with or collaborate with artists/producers like Quest/D'Angelo/3 Stacks/Michelle Ndegeocello/Tip ...artists who know his sound and won't deviate too much from that
