5.0 out of 5 stars Masterpiece!, October 17, 2000
By 
This review is from: Brown Sugar (Audio CD)
I first heard this album back in '95 when it first came out, and what with me just venturing into rnb music at that time (and being only 15 years old) I really didn't take to this album at all. I wasn't shy to admit it then, and I'm not shy to admit it now, what I lacked then was maturity in my musical tastes.
Back then all I wanted to do was dance, which is how rnb fit in quite nicely. My tastes developed into hip-hop pretty much through BIG, Ma$e, among many others. Still in the dancey stages of hip-hop, that eventually slowed right down towards the mellower/moodier sounds of hip-hop through artists like The Roots, Method Man, Tribe, Nas, Common and Gangstarr (again, among others), and through that route came my undying appreciation for soul music, which is where artists such as Maxwell, Eric Benet, Jill Scott and particularly, D'angelo shine through.
D'angelo has constantly stayed true to his roots and to the music that he puts out there. He breathes life into any track that he features on and is such a credit to the music world. He is almost a symbol of what music should really about - from his writing, to his producing, to his singing, to the instruments he plays. With 2 masterpieces behind him, while he is still in his mid-20's, we can only wait patiently for more.
I hope that hasn't bored you senseless, I just wanted to put my opinion out there.
Thanks for your time.
