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.
Janelle Monae said The Archandroid would change you after a few listens. It is the best album I have heard in a long long time and i think it may change me!
All Hail The ArchAndroid
Janelle Monae NEVER ceases to AMAZE me!!!! This album is pure genius. There is no other way to describe it! ArchAndroid is a complex and beautiful work of art from start to finish. The album art is incredible and the music has such texture, such life, it completely consumes you. This will be a seminal album for future free-thinking and extremely creative artists. As Janelle Monae says, "There's a renaissance happening right under our noses" and we can clearly see she is leading the movement. Thank you for making this album! Imagination inspires nations is absolutely correct!!!
This is the best album of 2010!!! This is epic! No further words!
