From first listen this is a going to be a candidate for record of 08 in my list. Quite simply it is that good. Badu is one of those artists that you expect to fall off at some stage and drift off into mediocrity. She has yet to do this though. Her music has continued to evolve and suprise in equal measure. This record is deep and has elements of all her best work over the years while managing to sound totally fresh as well. She has really found her voice here and gels so well with the producers. In fact I would say that this record matches the magic she had going on with Dilla on Mama's Gun. Heavyweights like Madlib and 9th Wonder work wonders as do Sa-Ra which amazes me as I have found them to be one of the most overhyped production teams out there but here they are amazing. Lyrically deep and somewhat dark in tone this is soul music for thinkers that makes you take notice much in the same way as Marvin in his prime. I hope that the depth and experimental nature of this record doesn't put peopl off. Soul music can be thoughtful and extend beyond simple production and sex even in 08, just take your time and let it sink in.
