Find Me On:
As for the cd release, it’s sad to see how the label seems to be sabotaging this release, especially as releasing it later in the year was supposed to have been for a major push. But they are releasing fucking up in the release and promotion of this.
Boom Clap is a hit song associated with a teen chick flick, so of course hipsters decided it’s wrong to like it. I actually think it’s pretty good.
I can feel D’Angelo holding back his tears as we talk!
Album (That Isn’t D’Angelo’s) Of The Week.
AS SHE SHOULD BE.
“Ain’t That Easy”. Damn, eager typing.
This is getting embarrassing for me, because it’s my third post on this article already, but oh my god, the more I listen to it, the more I can’t stop listening. I’m already on my 5th consecutive listen of the whole album, as I just started listening to it a few hours ago. Very few albums in the past few years got me to respond to them like that. It’s like every line, every riff, every vocal delivery just keeps getting better every time. This album is so musically layered. Prince and Sly & The Family Stone comparisons are damn deserved. Man, the band is just great, and I love how often the album goes from human to bonkers. It’s so exciting to hear this I’m not ashamed to sound like a hyperbolic superfan. I don’t even know how to pick a favorite song. “Ain’t It Easy”, “1000 Deaths”, “The Charade”, “Back To The Future (Part 1)”, “Till It’s Done (Tutu)”, “Prayer”, “Betray My Heart”, “Another Life”… how do you even begin to choose a favorite track in an album as awesome as this one? I’m just so fucking happy D’Angelo is back.
Oh, also, probably the best album of the year. D’Angelo is incredible.
No offense to Charli fans, but her AOTW article really will come with a huge implied asterisk.
I love this headline so much.
