iTunes Review

Meshell Ndegeocello’s ninth release burns with a quiet fire. Emotionally charged and sonically rich, Weather is an intimate recording supported by complex arrangements that ride along with her elastic bass playing and powerful, versatile voice. She sounds vulnerable and raw on the heartrending piano ballad “Oyster,” defiant on “Rapid Fire,” and sultry on “Crazy and Wild” and the title track. Slowing the tempo to a crawl, she smolders through the sparse and haunting “Objects in Mirror Are Closer Than They Appear” and “Feeling for the Wall,” as if struggling to contain her emotions. “Dirty World” and “Dead End,” two soulful uptempo numbers, offer relief from the album’s dark undercurrent, as does a tender cover of Leonard Cohen’s “Chelsea Hotel.” Produced by Joe Henry, the album is a study in control and subtlety as it finds a perfect pitch between the experimental and pop-oriented sides of her musical personality.

Customer Reviews

An artists journey

Popular music and consumerism has conditioned us to believe that we should get what we expect from artists. Top 40 and radio programming has done everything to reinforce this attitude...and according to some here...Me'shell should be a reflection of what we want and what we're comfortable hearing. "Forget where you come from and dance..."
If the journey that we hear is harsh, sad, and dark...let's take comfort in the fact that someone other than ourselves has been brave enough to have taken it and has recounted it in such beauty and honesty.

I will always love MeShell, but I pine for the days when she wasn't quite so moody- Jw

Disappointed Once Again.....

I have to be honest here. I am a huge fan of her work. But the problem is the direction she's taken again, with another disappointing album. I used to live for an album where she would have funk, tight melodies, intricate arrangements like "Priorties 1-6", "Earth", "If That's Your Boyfriend - (Tiramisu Mix)". The whole album of Peace Beyond Passion with funk gems of "Deuteronomy", "Mary Magdalene", "Stay" and the ever challenging song called "The Way". I miss the days of her creative passion, which now is replaced by someber arrangements, lackluster melodies and just uninteresting music. Meshell, I hope you come back to the passion that was you which had me anxious of getting an album from you again. When I see an album release, I feel disappointment, and the anxiety that I used to feel is now replaced with fear. Please Me'Shell, come back home!!!!! Your true fans need you and the funk of true black music to come alive again!!!!

Although Meshell Ndegeocello scored a few hits early in her career, the bassist, singer, and songwriter later opted to concentrate on more challenging material by exploring the politics of race and sex, among other topics. From her 1993 Maverick label debut through her releases of the 2010s for Naïve, she built a discography of recordings that defied classification through progressive mixtures of jazz, R&B, hip-hop, and rock. Initially held in regard primarily for her bass playing and bold lyrics,...
