A True Star is Born, The LP That Proves It.
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 31/03/2011 20:30:24
I first noticed Ms Monae when she released her first ever EP, the science fiction themed "Metropolis: Suite I of IIII". Her interpretation of a robot protagonist who falls in love with a human created such an intrigue, I was instantly hooked on her unique style and stunning voice. With "the ArchAndroid" she continues her characters journey with incredibly cinematic results. Gliding smoothly between classical interludes ('Suites II & III Overtunes'), swooningly mystical ballads ('Sir Greendown', 'Oh Maker'), funky dance numbers ('Tightrope', 'Faster') and even moments of psychedelic euphoria ('Mushrooms & Roses', 'Make The Bus'), the album becomes one of the most engaging albums in recent years. Astoundingly well constructed, "The ArchAndroid" proves an amazing future is ahead for Ms Monae (as im sure she already knows ;). A definate one for purchase.

A concept album about a time travelling songstress from a ficticious future...Normally you would start to think style over substance? But the delivery and style of every track , and every track the style seems to flow and change into something different from the proceeding track, is spot on be it influenced by RnB, pop, jazz, swing or walt disney! Buy it and like me i'm sure this will not leave your CD player.

Quite simply the best album this year. Every single track!

In a world of "pop rnb" this album is a welcome change from all the other popular artists that dominant the CD chart. More a story than an album. Janelle goes crazy using diverse styles such as funk, punk, rock, acid jazz, cabraret jazz and eurotrance. This is normally a no no for most artists however Janelle pulls it off. Think Andre 3000 on crack. Janelle will be here for a long time to come. The highest rated album on metacrtic this year. You will be not disappointed with a hard earned purchase for your cash.
