D'Angelo: Overrated?

I ranked D'Angelo's three studio albums in my personal order, which happens to be chronological. I'm aware that some will disagree with the order, but I understand that any of these three albums can land in someone's top spot because they've all earned critical acclaim. The reason I posted this brief list though is simply to ask, is D'Angelo overrated? It's a matter of opinion of course, but when the question was asked to me this week, I wasn't sure where I stood. Here's my answer: I very much enjoy D'Angelo's music. I do however feel like the protracted time between each album makes them very much a thing of their time. I don't feel Brown Sugar and Voodoo aged incredibly well. Though they're still quite enjoyable, I'm forced to listen to them reminding myself when they were released, thus not making them timeless albums in my opinion. As for Black Messiah, time will tell. I think it will age the best of the three albums. Is there something I'm missing? Or is D'Angelo overrated? Comment below.
