Voodoo [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Marie Elsie St. Léger
Five years after BROWN SUGAR signaled a break from urban radio's R&B by-the-numbers, Michael D'Angelo Archer returns with another dose of deep soul and musical VOODOO. Like its predecessor, VOODOO is confident, not cocksure; seductive without being lascivious; musicianly, not merely production-savvy. Unlike many neo-soul artists, D'Angelo does not draw his primary inspiration from hip-hop. Instead, the Virginia native's lean production aesthetic and overall soul vibe are informed more by his obvious admiration of '70s innovators Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Isaac Hayes and the modern soul of Prince. D'Angelo pays tribute with a sultry remake of the Roberta ...

Barnes & Noble - Marie Elsie St. Léger
Five years after BROWN SUGAR signaled a break from urban radio's R&B by-the-numbers, Michael D'Angelo Archer returns with another dose of deep soul and musical VOODOO. Like its predecessor, VOODOO is confident, not cocksure; seductive without being lascivious; musicianly, not merely production-savvy. Unlike many neo-soul artists, D'Angelo does not draw his primary inspiration from hip-hop. Instead, the Virginia native's lean production aesthetic and overall soul vibe are informed more by his obvious admiration of '70s innovators Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Isaac Hayes and the modern soul of Prince. D'Angelo pays tribute with a sultry remake of the Roberta Flack hit "Feel Like Makin' Luv" and with the seductive pauses and behind-the-beat phrasing that are as essential to his sound as his avoidance of samples. Working with a live band, D'Angelo kicks it with musicians who understand the flexibility of the groove, assembling such heavyweights as jazz trumpeter Roy Hargrove, who cowrote "Spanish Joint," and Roots drummer ?uestlove. D'Angelo imitates no one, however: VOODOO is a statement of maturity and responsibility the blues-drenched "Send It On" is a message to his son; of mischief "Playa Playa" and "Left & Right," with Method Man and Redman; of keeping it straight "Great Day in the Morning"; and, finally, on the hot single "Untitled," of keeping it true, which D'Angelo very definitely does.
All Music Guide - John Bush
Five years after his Brown Sugar album helped launch contemporary R&B, D'Angelo finally returned with his sophomore effort, Voodoo. His soulful voice is just as sweet as it was on Brown Sugar, though D'Angelo stretches out with a varied cast of collaborators, including trumpeter Roy Hargrove and guitarist Charlie Hunter, fellow neo-soul stars Lauryn Hill and Raphael Saadiq, and hip-hop heads like DJ Premier, Method Man & Redman, and Q-Tip. It must have been difficult to match his debut and the frequent delays prove it was on his mind, but Voodoo is just as rewarding a soul album as D'Angelo's first.

    Best sex I've ever had with this CD

    I spent a romantic evening with a man who included D'Angelo with the evening's ambiance. I don't know what made that evening amazing, but the music was a major part of it.

    D'Angelo equals essence

    D'Angelo equals essence, H e is just wonderful and sexual and to top things off he has a voice a woman would die to wake up to every morning, I love all his songs and there's is nothing ugly about him and i hope he keeps the music flowing, When i hear him singing i just relax and enjoy the sounds, To all the women out there on a bad day or a good day sit back and enjoy the sweet sounds of D'Angelo and smile, Well Thank's D'Angelo for helping me thru the day's.

    SMOOTH R&B IS BACK

    From the first to the last track, D'Angelo has reestablished himself as a dominating force in the neo-soul movement. Without a doubt, he's on top of his game.

    Voodoo puts you in a trance.

    In the tradition of Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, and Sly Stone, D'Angelo makes great R&B music that is instantly recognizable as his own. A very personal statement by today's best male R&B artist.

    His video is perfect!

    Every woman I know enjoys this video. It's the most talked about video among the ladies. I would like to personally thank him for singing on his video nude. He took the time to get himself together, body pumping, skin smooth and looking like you can just eat him up. As a woman I feel I have good taste and speaking for all the ladies He's hot. Good choice for a video.
