Voodoo by D'Angelo Ranked

haven't been able to get this album out of my head recently
13D'Angelo
Voodoo


Left & Right - the guest verses on this are good enough but they don't really fit the vibe that the rest of the album is hitting.
12D'Angelo
Voodoo


Playa Playa - Meanders a bit too much but the horns on this song are unreal.
11D'Angelo
Voodoo


Chicken Grease - Just a pure structureless soul jam. Has never really left a stamp on my memory but I enjoy it every time it comes around on the track list.
10D'Angelo
Voodoo


Devil's Pie - This song is diiiiirrrrtttty. Borderline atonal and incredibly groovy, a super daring lead single.
9D'Angelo
Voodoo


The Line - Some of the harmonies on this get me chongling real hard
8D'Angelo
Voodoo


Feel Like Makin' Love - The only cover on the album. I don't think I've ever heard the original, so I can't compare. J Dilla's influence can be felt all over this one.
7D'Angelo
Voodoo


Greatdayndamornin - The longest song on the album, one of its most formless, and simultaneously one of its most memorable. The key change at the end is one of my favorite moments on this entire record.
6D'Angelo
Voodoo


One Mo'Gin - We're getting into the all time great tracks now; one of the funkiest, filthiest things I've ever heard, and then it just gets major and beautiful out of nowhere in the chorus. Questlove also murders that ending jam.
5D'Angelo
Voodoo


Africa - A brilliant choice for a closer and one of the coolest percussion tracks I've ever heard on a song. The keyboards on this track are also amazingly atmospheric.
4D'Angelo
Voodoo


Spanish Joint - Charlie Hunter is the most impressive guest musician on this album and it's not close. Using an 8-string to play bass and lead guitar at the same time, his guest spot turns Spanish Joint from a late-album deep cut into an all-time great highlight. The horn stabs, Questlove's infectious groove, and the unreal key change to D Minor at the end don't hurt either.
3D'Angelo
Voodoo


Untitled (How Does It Feel?) - All the hype you've heard about this song is true. The way it just keeps building is truly impressive, and the last 90 seconds of this track are something you have to hear to believe. D'Angelo's super high F#5 that he hits at the big part never fails to give me chills.
2D'Angelo
Voodoo


The Root - Charlie Hunter strikes again. This track has my favorite lyrics on the album, and hits the spiritual themes of the album stronger than any other except maybe Africa. There's an instrumental break in this song around 3:15 that is one of my favorite moments in musical history.
1D'Angelo
Voodoo


Send It On - I don't think my words can do this one justice. One of my favorite songs of the entire decade. Listen and be blessed.
