Absolutely adored this brilliant follow-up to 2010's The ArchAndroid. Several tracks are immediately catchy, and some need a few listens to grow on you, but ultimately each is a fresh and creative piece. Higlights include the tracks Electric Lady, We Were Rock n' Roll, Victory, and What an Experience, which needs to be listened to all the way through. So much fun.

As the year draws to a close, expect to see this on a lot of best of lists. I think this tops her last album; an intoxicating, fresh and danceable stew of 21st century R&B, rock, pop, jazz and funk. Guests include Prince, Solange, Miguel and Eryka Badu.

Eclectic. Electrifying! It's got the retro-80's feel to it. Highly listenable.

Summary

Add a Summary

"I started thinking about a new 21st-century breed of women," Janelle Monáe says of the process that led to her second album, The Electric Lady. "How does she make love? What are her feelings regarding politics, sexuality, religion, oppression? These questions led me to a portal into the future." The past was pretty important, too – she cites Bo Diddley, Jimi Hendrix and Sly Stone as key inspirations. The disc also features a festival-worthy guest list, with spots from buddies Erykah Badu, Solange and Monáe's "musical icon and mentor," Prince. "Prince doesn't just appear on anybody's album," Monáe says. "To have him be a part of The Electric Lady was incredible – I'm still in disbelief."
