Editors’ Notes

Janelle Monáe is an optimist with purpose. On her debut, she plays an android in a dystopian future (detailed on “Locked Inside”), and endangers her existence by falling in love with a human on “Oh, Maker”. Despite a downbeat story line inspired by the German expressionist classic Metropolis, the music brims with joy. Her Wondaland production team takes cues from James Brown and Stevie Wonder, adding classical overtures and a dazzling pop sheen to romps like “Tightrope” and “Cold War”. Monáe herself is a powerhouse singer (and rapper) with a big personality to match.

A brilliant blend

This album is well written, sung and great to listen too. THe songs do differ greatly, whcih can be a little offputting, however after listening to all tracks in all the album is simply brilliant!

a steal!

Janelle Monae is a rare talent. There are few who can match her unique style and sound. The ArchAndriod is a very strong debut album ... and with the iTunes LP at the same price as the regular album ... its great value!
