Smoke Notes

Multi instrumentalist and gifted songwriter, Meshell Ndegeocello is one of the strongest female artists in music, her refusal to conform to the embodiment of Black culture and womanhood make her a figure both to respect and enjoy. With a handful of excellent albums under her belt, including 'Bitter' and 'Plantation Lullabies', youd almost expect Ndegeocello to take an easier route to success, yet this latest effort is continually challenging and provocative while still stunningly beautiful and musically ambitious. Opener Love Song #1 is built around a laid-back dub rhythm, allowing space for the touching vocal, while next up Come Smoke My Herb is a beautifully rendered slice of urban soul, full of atmosphere with an echoed vocal taking the song somewhere else - a dreamy state of mind to share with your loved one. Andromeda & The Milky Way is a journey into space that is both sublime and effortless, a tricky time signature is punctuated with floating guitar lines and whimsical lyrics, sounding like some sort of futuristic folk that is as complex as it unique. Lilquai Moon is an acoustic moment complete with Pedal Steel while Fellowship is another reggae song of much class, forget Wyclefs attempts at being Bob Marley, this is a truly inspired interpretation of Jamaicas finest export. Ndegeocello's thought provoking lyrics are as challenging as her music and on 'Comfort Woman' she deals with religion, relationships and family, all with a reflective intelligence many of her peers would be wise to take note off - and on the evidence presented by 'Comfort Woman', her contemporaries are still a long way from catching up. An inspired album that comes firmly recommended for anyone who enjoys pop music with plenty of thought and soul (or artists such as Erykah Badu, Jill Scott, Alicia Keys, India.Arie, etc).
