When D'Angelo popped on the scene in '97 with his critical and commercial breakthrough BROWN SUGAR, he brought a gush of refreshing air to the musty world of soulful, sensual R&B. When VOODOO was released, little in the R&B world had changed, as the same stale, color-by-numbers vocals sung over the simplest of beats--ripped off from Teddy Riley or Timbaland--dominated the genre. But once again, the singer/songwriter (for that's what he is) dropped a dose of energy into the soul planet with his invigorating, jazzy, funky, constantly metamorphosing sophomore effort.
While much of VOODOO is not entirely original, D'Angelo does wear his influences on his sleeve, particularly those of Prince and Marvin Gaye. D'Angelo does so many things well that by the time he is finished, it's hard to question whether his sound is his own or an exacting mesh of all that's come before. Truly it doesn't matter, for VOODOO is so endearingly crafty and knee-weakeningly seductive, it's practically impossible to close your heart to it. From the free-jazzy, trippy old-school-dragged-through-the-blues muck of "Devil's Pie" to the straightforward torch singing of "Untitled," VOODOO mesmerizes and hypnotizes with soul both familiar and brand new. A tasty treat.
Artist Overview
D'Angelo was one of the leading lights of the neo-soul movement, which aimed to bring the organic flavor of classic R&B to the hip-hop age. Modeling himself on the likes of Marvin Gaye, Curtis Mayfield, and Al Green, D'Angelo's influences didn't just come across in his vocal style. Like most of those artists, he wrote his own material, and frequently produced it as well, helping to revive the concept of the R&B auteur. His debut album, Brown Sugar (1995), gradually earned him an audience so devoted that the follow-up, Voodoo (2000), debuted at number one despite a five-year gap. The wait for his third album, Black Messiah (2014), was much longer, but its reception was rapturous. ~ Steve Huey
