It was released on December 15, 2014, by RCA Records, bringing an end to his 14-year hiatus that followed his 2000 album Voodoo. The album was produced and mostly written by D'Angelo, who collaborated with musicians such as percussionist Questlove, bassist Pino Palladino, guitarist Isaiah Sharkey, and horn player Roy Hargrove.

A great album, but a few tracks seem a little over-produced, like there is just a little too much going on in the background, and it takes away from the amazing vocals. Voodoo is still his best album, but it's nice just to have a new D'Angelo album after all these years. Ответить Уведомить меня Helpful.

D'Angelo and the Vanguard, D'Angelo. Black Messiah clashes with mainstream R&B trends as much as Voodoo did in 2000. Unsurprisingly, the artist's label picked this album's tamest, most traditional segment - the acoustic ballad "Really Love" - as the first song serviced to commercial radio. It's the one closest to "Untitled (How Does It Feel)," the Voodoo cut that, due to its revealing video, made D'Angelo feel as if his image was getting across more than his music

With D’Angelo’s 14-year silence suddenly broken over Christmas, it’s almost a surprise to find the reclusive R&B enigma’s style so unchanged. Notwithstanding the occasional foray into jazz and blues, Black Messiah is much the same blend of miasmic boudoir soul, bare-bones funk and liberation songs that characterised his 2000 milestone, Voodoo. The opener, Ain’t That Easy, serves notice of what’s to follow, lurching in like an errant, strutting Sly Stone groove, built on the febrile flexibility of real analogue funk bass and drums, with D’Angelo’s layered falsetto sounding like a phalanx of Al Greens on their knees.

Anyone know where I can get a lossless digital copy of the 2nd CD? WAV/AIFF preferred, but will take FLAC/ALAC.
SiIеnt
My pressing sound muddy like MP3 vinyl in the swamp. Much better streamed.
Getaianne
The EU pressing is quite noticeably inferior to the US cut, which sounds excellent. I have had both. The EU copy is just an in house cut at Optimal media.
Hugighma
Clean your needle! This is a wonderful piece of vinyl.
Iesha
Great record, quality pressing! A lot of detail in the sound.

A great album, but a few tracks seem a little over-produced, like there is just a little too much going on in the background, and it takes away from the amazing vocals. Voodoo is still his best album, but it's nice just to have a new D'Angelo album after all these years.
Thomand
We need an cassette release. . . . ! !
Shem
I put this record on and her panties melted right off.
Helo
What an incredible record, I'm very late to the game with this one, but holy cow, the sound, the pressing quality, and of course, the music, are all as good as it gets. Wow. Just blown away.
Deodorant for your language
Anyone having problems with the digital download code? I know D'Angelo's addressed this before but looks like the link he last provided is still messing up.
Syleazahad
Is the bass meant to be so exaggerated on this release?
Captain America
My copy has a slight warp on the 2nd LP, but the sound is incredible. I have no reason to take it back, a must own in my opinion. EDIT: This is supposed to be referencing the US/Canada 2xLP release, not sure why it's referencing the CD.
Bluddefender
Beautiful Songs! Amazing sound! Very good Mastering – nice work!
Hilarious Kangaroo
Do you have the UK pressing? My US pressing is muddy and terrible sounding.

Dear contributors and administrators for Black Messiah personnel, The credit for the spoken word is incorrect. The spoken word artist is Gina Figueroa not Gina Loring. Please make the necessary correction. Gina Figueroa is an ASCAP performer and her publishing company is Cocolita's Music. Sincerely, Gina Figueroa

Muchas Gracias people!!
saafari
This is fixed now with the correct credit.
Arar
Fantastic! This is an essential LP!
Funny duck
some of the best mastering i've ever heard in a modern pressing. think it was all analog too.
Voodoogore
I have the US pressing and it sounds excellent overall...but is quite dense sounding and emphasises the low frequencies. If you have a warm sounding system, I think it could sound 'muddy'....
Yojin
Do you have the UK pressing? My US pressing is muddy and terrible sounding.

"Notes: No Digital "Plug-ins" of Any Kind Were Used in This Recording. All of the Recording, Processing, Effects and Mixing Was Done in the Analog Domain Using Tape and Mostly Vintage Equipment for Best Results. Listen at Maximum Volume." :-)
Molace
The album is all analog, but the vinyl was pressed from a hi-def digital master that was copied straight from the tapes. I doubt you'd be able to hear the difference if it were pressed directly from the tapes....I can't image this pressing sounding any more amazing than it already does.
BlackHaze
Thank you D for coming back. We missed you, we missed real music and artistry. Let's hope we won't have to wait another 15 years for the next album...
Dawncrusher
It's jaw-droppingly brilliant. The double vinyl package is so exquisite and well worth the wait.
Centrizius
Quality press, dead quiet, does justice to the phenomenal detail put into the production of this record. Highly recommended.
Fhois
Do you have the UK pressing? My US pressing is muddy and terrible sounding.
Miromice
I dont know...I bought mine in Febraury at Fry's Electronics.
Manarius
Beautiful amalgam of influences refined into a focused style.Great album. Highly accomplished production.
Bukelv
Amazing work!
Micelhorav
Got the vinyl yesterday 6/3/15 2LP with lyrics booklet. Great work, amazing album.
Ffrlel
released feb 10th? according to my email when i pre-ordered, it comes out march 10th.
Cetnan
Pretty sure the original release date was in February, and then delivery was pushed a month back. I preordered it as soon as it was announced, and then in late January I got an email stating they had to delay it
Painshade
It was delayed. The original release date was Feb 10th. Then it got pushed to march 28th I believe. There was also a snowstorm involved. Then it was on the shelves officially- March 10th.
Anen
I own the LP today. So... lol?
Vut
The guy at the record shop I go to here in Columbus OH, said they delayed it, and gave no update on a release date. Hopefully soon. I will stop in and get a update later this week.
Dakora
It was pushed back to a unknown date just a week or so before the Feb 10th release date. So march 10th is likely the new release date.
Awene
Shame. Still 13 people claiming the own it already. lol
Jorius
Likewise...just got the note yesterday that it'd been pushed back to March 10.
Celak
I've since been told May 25th by one London record shop
Kamick
vinyl please instant classic
Gom
late to the game and hadn't heard this finally dropped... this album is fantastic. well worth the wait! d'angelo is so smooth it's silly.
Whitemaster
Bloody hell he is so good
Mightdragon
a truly phenomenal piece of work. d'angelo's album is the closest thing we have to a 2014 marvin gaye or stevie wonder's late 60s through late 70s seminal work. 5/5 stars.
Thabel
right on!- R
Shliffiana
For vinyl heads.. 2xLP (rumored) is coming in February

15 years and nothing has really changed for him. This album is just as good, if not better than Voodoo.. The sound is the same, though a bit more refined. Together with his band The Vanguard (which contains some over qualified musicians), he has crafted an album that blows anything barely competitive away.. I been listening to many great album this year and D´Angelo just fly by suddenly and drops this surprisingly at the end of the year..How dare he be away for so long and come back and do an album like this? So good it´s down right ridiculous. I just feel like hating him for it.. Go home.. Who deserves a masterpiece like this? no one..
Manemanu
Yeah it just dropped all of the sudden, although it was confirmed it would come earlier this year i think. Just hope it get pressed on wax (edit: Confirmed that a vinyl 2xLP edition will drop in February.)
Kuve
I didn't even know his album was dropping so "soon". I gotta get it. Very helpful reviews, BTW.
tref
in total agreement. As good if not better than Vodoo. Just laughed all the way through first listen at how shockingly great this work of art is.
