BLOG BLURB #1: The New Badu…ya dig?

I’ll use BLOG BLURBS to document random conversations on music new and old. Here’s the latest from a friend who knows that Erykah Badu is my #1 favorite R&B artist.

Melony: The New Badu… ya dig?

Me: You know, to be honest Mel, I haven’t really gotten in to it yet. I bought it back in April and listened to it right away, and my first impression was that it was the 2nd album everyone would have expected/wanted. It hasn’t really grown on me yet…but that could be because the first time I listened to it I was with a bunch of classic rockers (i.e. The Shiz) and none of them were really into…you know how that can color an experience… How ’bout you?

Melony: The first time I listened to it, it was more ambient noise in the background of having some people over. I really enjoyed it. Last night was the first time I listened to it without anything else going on and I wasn’t as in love with it. It makes sense with the first album… but it’s just not giving me the sauce I’d expect.

Me: I think as ambient noise it would be hot…just right for the vibe-y sophisticate….but less intriguing when it’s just me and her in the room.

Anybody else have this album?

    I am so totally having flash backs to when Amerykah came out.
