Complex yet wholehearted, and dense with byzantine sparkle
2013 | Label: Bad Boy/Wondaland

Behind all the cameos, the sci-fi allegory, the eclecticism and the nearly cult-ish Wondaland collective that creates these ultra-intricate jams, Janelle Monáe specializes in generosity. Where others serve up instant-gratification earworms, this Kansas City-born, Atlanta-based dynamo delivers sprawling futuristic funk-rock operas that dazzle on impact yet sustain protracted pleasure. Three years after The ArchAndroid, a long-playing debut that’s still revealing carefully buried treasure, she now releases a sequel equally dense with byzantine sparkle.

okay but...

carldd

over produced. when her albums have the energy of her live shows and lose all the studio production she'll truly deserve the hype.

Better than Timberlake (but there's flab)

Don't get me wrong, the world is a waaay better place for the class and sheer talent of Monae on evident display here. Buuut... this is a record that suffers a little from its schtick over 70 minutes of arrangements as thick as molasses, so as background music you're sure to be reaching for the shuffle after "Dance Apocalyptica". She needs to move forward a tad, drop the tired radio skits, and be a little less reverential to her idols, like Gaye and Wonder, Philly and jazz-fusion. One sign of her capability to transcend her influences is the wunnerful Giving Em Their Love with Prince. I'm keepin' the faith, nonetheless.

Six Degrees of Janet Jackson’s Control

By Maura Johnston, Contributor

It used to be easier to pretend that an album was its own perfectly self-contained artifact. The great records certainly feel that way. But albums are more permeable than solid, their motivations, executions and inspirations informed by, and often stolen from, their peers and forbearers. It all sounds awfully formal, but it's not. It's the very nature of music — of art, even. The Six Degrees features examine the relationships between classic records and five… more »
