Critiques CD: Erykah Badu | New Amerikah Part Two (Return of the Ankh)

Since taking off the head wrap a few years ago, Badu seems to have been on a steady spiritual and musical digression that finally ends with this album. From the excellent single “Window Seat” laced with always-on-point ?uestlove drums to the Junior Mafi a nudge on “Turn Me Away (Get MuNNY)”, this record puts neo-soul’s most special voice back into rotation and away from all the speculations. Placed into context with New Amerikah Part One, both albums offer a strong artistic statement but this is the only one you will play on a first date.
