The Return of the King: D’Angelo

I have been spending quite a few hours listening to the new album Black Messiah by D’Angelo and the Vanguard.

That’s because I am so very, very, very pleased with D’Angelo’s return to the world stage. I’m so very, very, very pleased with the work he put into this album. It’s heartfelt, it’s funky, it’s all the things you love about D’Angelo, but with the triumph of a long-awaited return.

I don’t know the years have done to D’Angelo, but I think it was good for him to be away. I think it was good for him to take his time, work through some shit and dig deep.

I missed him. But I’m glad he’s back.
