Solange - A Seat at the Table
88
Reviewed Oct 16, 2016
It's stupid to say that this is just music, I mean, there's so much culture, discussion and strenght in this album, like it can trascend the state of being just art and become a source for identity and history. However, if it comes down to purely what reaches the ear, Solange's A Seat at the Table finds her in a position of self-empowerment, universal access and thought-provoking lyrics. The interludes give cohesion and guide you through it all, they give you words worth on checking them out, they have wisdom between the lines. The production gives vibes of the last three decades and still feels fresh. This really made me pay attention to other point of views in the struggles of being a black person in the society nowadays, it's kinda revolutionary in some way too. Totally blown away by it.

Fav tracks: Weary, Cranes in the Sky, Mad, Don't Touch My Hair, F.U.B.U., Borderline (An Ode to Self Care).
Least fav track: Scales.
