Janelle Monae: The Electric Lady
Buy! - (Bad Boy)
The Atlanta-based artist’s second album is another wildly ambitious though slightly more focused sci-fi concept album seamlessly blending R&B, funk, soul, hip hop, glam-rock, gospel, jazz, Broadway show tunes and more while tackling themes of empowerment and sexuality through musically rich, intricately detailed songs that connect far more often than they miss. The impressive guest list included Prince, Erykah Badu, Solange, Miguel and Esperanza Spalding, but Monae remains the queen of her own musical universe. 9/12/2013 - Don Yates
