TOTW:D’Angelo and the Vanguard_Really Love

Really love the highpoint of an outstanding piece of work namely the album Black Messiah D’Angelo. On the whole album His style of R&B/neo soul is taken through some exquisite production and instrumentation to create textures rarely heard in this gene.

Really love starts with a string section and Spanish guitar before a more traditional hiphop beat layered with brass and woodwind sets in. These aren’t overly processed samples but fresh beautiful recordings with organic dynamic range.

It’s this more subtle sound that works throughout. removing the more harsh abrasive production found in the genre keeps black Messiah so fresh. Give the whole thing a listen but start with really love:
