the super smooth soulster's long-awaited follow up to the landmark 'voodoo' album from back in 2000 is being hailed as something of an instant classic, almost unanimously.

it features lyrical contributions from Q-Tip & Funkadelic’s Kendra Foster while ?uestlove of the Roots, bassist Pino Palladino & drummer James Gadson. "a study in controlled chaos...'Black Messiah' is a dictionary of soul, but D'Angelo is the rare classicist able to filter the attributes of the greats in the canon into a sound distinctly his own. It’s at once familiar & oddly unprecedented" 9.4/10 - pitchfork, 'Black Messiah' shows how deep easy can go. D'Angelo and his band have built an avant-soul dream palace to get lost in, for 56 minutes of heaven" 4.5/5 - rolling stone, "constantly engrossing" 9/10 - nme.
