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.
|idk but I almost bought his ICON cd the other day but didn't due to a lack of reviews.|
But who cares, just decide for yourself if you like it.
You don't/shouldn't need other peoples validations of the music you listen to...
|I don't think so, but I'm a pretty big fan of his now |
|I agree. As I said in the description, I like his music. I just feel like there's this hype surrounding him that makes him somewhat a music untouchable. He has this legend status with very little to show for it. I was curious as to whether people tend to agree with the praise or not.|
|i've only heard Black Messiah and it's worth the praise imo|
|I feel like he's only overrated because the praise around him has gotten so ridiculously hyperbolic. Very good music, for sure.|
