    Default Janelle Monae delivers on the promise.




    This is fucking ACE and you need it in your ears NOW>

    An excellent materialization of everything she suggested she had in her with her previous EPs.

    Hey Mizzzzzzzz Germanotta, this is what it's like when your outrageous image is matched by your musical vision. Monae isnt just an odd haircut and goofy outfit(s). She has something very special.

    These melodies leap skyscrapers and bound galaxies. And she makes it all sound so effortless, like she's got a bottomless magic bag of musical ideas just waiting to plug in and burst into widescreen technicolor.

    Oooops. Just learned in the Foals thread that this should have gone in 2010 albums. My bad.

    Who cares? There's nothing wrong with raving about Janelle Monae, but I'm not sure I feel the same way about the new release. I was a big fan of the EPs, and she's fantastic live, but I'm halfway through and none of the new tracks are as good as "Sincerely, Jane" or "Many Moons"... so far. I got kind of bored though and started listening to something else. Did I miss something awesome?

    HandBanana, your description is one of the most ridiculously hyperbolic things I have ever read. Congratulations on your uninhibited gushing.

    I caught her NPR interview last wknd. She talks about the song writing process. They played a drum n bass tune that was really really awesome. I can't find the name of it. Anybody know it?

    There's a part in that live track where the backup vocalists sing a backup part that sounded almost identical to a track from Remain in Light. And that's fucking awesome.
