2009 release, the acclaimed musician's eighth solo release. Devil's Halo harkens back to the way records used to be made: no click, live band energy, and phenomenal musicianship. Influenced by a breadth of sounds, from The Human League to Wu Tang to Yes, Devil's Halo displays Meshell's own diversity of formidable gifts. Always the uncompromising artist and bass player, this record brings a broad range of musical and lyrical voices and selves: the searcher, the skeptic, the dissenter, and the lover. True to form, Meshell offers compositions with raging climaxes alongside moments of terrifying tenderness and honesty. Genre-defiant as ever, Devil's Halo asks for the real fans of exploration to please stand up.

Personally I had to change the track order. The default setup just didn't feel right with Die Young and Crying in Your Beer ending the CD. Moving Die Young to track 3, Love You Down to Track 2 and Hair of the Dog to track four seemed to have better flow to me. Once I did that I was able to enjoy Devil's Halo a lot more. Changing track orders may seem like nit picking but I have every Meshell CD released and I've never felt the need to do this with her music before. With that in mind I thought this was worthy of mentioning.
In short...great music from a great musician that's hindered because it's over too soon. It would be 5 star otherwise.
