Articles
Voodoo, D'Angelo's much-anticipated 2000 release, set the standard for the musical cycle ordained as 'neo-soul', a label the singer and songwriter would reject more than a decade later. The album is a product of heightened emotions and fused sensibilities; an amalgam of soul, rock, jazz, gospel, hip-hop, and Afrobeats. D'Angelo sets to music his own pleasures and insecurities as a man-child in the promised land. It was both a tribute to his musical heroes: Prince, Sly Stone, Marvin Gaye, J Dilla - and a deconstruction of rhythm and blues itself.
