D'Angelo: Black Messiah
Buy! - (RCA)
D'Angelo's long-awaited third album (his first in 14 years) is a masterful, idiosyncratic blend of funk, soul, rock and jazz, with a warm and gritty analog sound incorporating a variety of instrumentation from bluesy rock guitars and twinkling keyboards to horns, strings, woodwinds and more, combining rubbery funk grooves with D'Angelo's soulful, often multi-layered vocals and lyrics blending the personal and the political. 12/19/2014 - Don Yates
