From corenfro
Underrated neo-soul / funk with a psychedelic twist and great guitar sounds. So much good music on this at such a high level of output. Riding on the wings of Stevie Wonder, George Clinton, MJ, James Brown, Outkast, Lauryn Hill and Missy Elliot, she was able to do what a bit of what St. Vincent, FKA Twigs, Beyonce, Solange, Grimes, and Kendrick have all been since intensely praised for, yet half a decade earlier. It's as good as anything that's out this decade in this genre.

A kind of r'n'b version of The wall, in it's delivery. Some great moments on here. Extremely enjoyable.

Mushrooms and Roses was probably my favorite track (probably because I'm a boring rocker). I do find this album tantalizing... but idk... just not that interesting. Good palate cleanser, but not a main dish?

Does anyone else see the parallels between Pharrell's 'Happy' and 'Tightrope'?

The way she blends some many genres is genius. She doesn't play safe and always executes well. Tightrope may be the best of the decade. Just amazing.

Monae's ability to hop from one genre to another is almost unbelievable; she makes it look so effortless and cool. Tracks like Cold War, Wondaland, Tightrope, 57821, and Mushrooms & Roses are all great examples as to why Janelle Monae will go down in history as one of the greatest artists of all time. Also have to give a shout out to guitar player Rekrap Odnillek who really adds a lot to the music with his playing on this album.
