Back to the Future, indeed...

As a 57-year-old suburban white dude, I can't be too hard on myself for being late to the party. D'Angelo and the Vanguard's Black Messiah is a bass-driven, overproduced, Prince-inspired feast for the ears from soup to nuts. I'm not sold on the well-meaning lyrics, but you don't need to pay much attention to the words if you just let that syncopated funky wall of sound wash all over you.
