You know that you’ve got a great summer album on your hands when track one features the melodic genius of The Beach Boys’ Brian Wilson. From there it jumps into all the catchy pop and dance rhythms you could hope for while lyrically celebrating youth and expression.
Both in style and attitude Janelle Monae is making a case to be the heir apparent to Prince. Dirty Computer was even released with a Sci-Fi movie of the same name like Prince did with Purple Rain. This comparison is most prevalent on the track “Make Me Feel”.
Dirty Computer is fun and relevant to the times we are in.
Enjoy it on a road trip, at a summer barbecue or just dancing by yourself.
