CRITIC REVIEWS

AllMusic

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.

Pitchfork

Not all music needs to be built to last, but Voodoo was designed and willed and technically optimized to be a testament for the ages; it captures empty space and heartbreak as well as it does rim shots and joy. The grooves deepen.

NME
To simply call D'Angelo's work neo-classic soul, as per corporate diktat, would be reductive, for that would be to ignore the elements of vaudeville jazz, Memphis horns, ragtime blues, funk and bass grooves, not to mention hip-hop, that slip out of every pore of these 13 haunted songs.

Rolling Stone

The problem is, Voodoo sounds so loose and unfinished, it floats right off into the clouds.

Similar in many ways to Black Messiah, but only slightly not as good from my perspective. But still a superb album regardless.

Favorite track: Spanish Joint

D'Angelo is the Marvin Gaye of our time, a neo-soul king that delivers ridiculously rich and textured grooves and instrumentals. Seriously great shit.
