Nothing was seeing D'Angelo's first cd. From 1995 to about 1998 he's all i personally listened too. When he integrated that soulquarian sound (Pino, Questlove, Poyser) it was a real turn off to me, as his feel was absent on his last cd, imho. I read a post on here about an artist i decided to check out (Citizen Cope) and took to his sound instantly. Although his last cd lost a bit of steam to me, his body of work is incredible.
