Products / D'Angelo - Black Messiah
[R&B / neo soul / funk] If you don't know about multi-instrumentalist musician D'Angelo already, now is the time to give him a listen. He claims to be channelling the spirit of Marvin Gaye and, as barmy as that may sound, his music is certainly rife with the melody, heart and soul of Gaye's 'What's Going On' era sound. Here, on his third album, D'Angelo establishes a truly expansive record that needs several listens, as more detail reveals itself with each spin. Highlight track: 'Ain't That Easy'
