What makes Homecoming — both the album and the live performance — so classic is that Beyonce makes clear, now and forever, that she is unapologetically, and beautifully, Black.

Pitchfork

Beyoncé’s historic Coachella set is preserved as a stunning live album that captures an artist at her peak, flexing her catalog and shining a light on the genius of black artists that came before her.

this is probably the longest album ive ever listened to, but damn is it fun and funky. the transitions are so smooth and for a live album, the recording is very well done. if i had a butt, i would shake it like there is no tomorrow (no homo lmao), but i dont see myself listening to all of it in one sitting
