Janelle Monae - Dirty Computer
What do you think? I wasn't too big on any of the singles, really (although they do all have good videos), but the full album with the singles slotted in works much better. The singles are basically all too trendy/modern/Beyoncefied (who can stand all these samey fucking trap beats?) but the other tracks have a bit more of the classic soul and R&B notes that made her earlier albums so enjoyable. I'd say this is easily the weakest of her releases, but I warmed considerably to the last album after repeated listening, so maybe this time will be similar. I don't think I'll be seeing her perform in small-ish rooms anymore, though.
