D’Angelo released his new album Black Messiah at midnight, and holy fuck is it good. It’s one of the few pieces of music that had me overcome with emotions. As I’m typing this, I’m in my second listen of the album.
It has been said that in creating this album, D’Angelo and his collaborators record to tape rather than the new-fangled digital methods more commonly used now. I don’t know if that’s why the album sounds real organic, warm and really fucking sexy, but it’s quite old school.
And speaking of old school, as you can tell from the picture above I have gone analog in my writing. That is a snapshot of my journal which I have started going back to. Maybe I’ll scan some entries and post them here? Maybe I’ll just keep it to myself and post edited versions here. Just call me Anais Nin.
