The New Yorker Praises D’Angelo’s “Black Messiah”

The New Yorker reviewed D’Angelo’s Black Messiah saying, “Like a New York City radiator, the record is warming and intermittently noisy, too intense to hold tightly but powerful enough to change an entire apartment’s atmosphere. Like “Voodoo,” a hazy, unified piece of hovering funk, “Black Messiah” resembles one piece of music rather than a series of songs. It is so texturally inviting that I played it on loop for three straight days. I didn’t want to get out of it.” Read more here.
