Q.U.E.E.N.," and there's something just so deliciously retro and incredibly modern about the whole thing all at the same time. And of course I had to buy the album.
Well, I got way more than I thought I was getting. For one thing, it's a 2-disc album. For another, apparently she's presenting her musical catalog in movements. There's a whole story line about droids and robots and the future and a fugitive, and somehow the songs are still excellent apart from all the crazy.
Another one of my favorite numbers is "Dance Apocolyptic," whose video is way stranger and less mod than I thought it would be. Anyway, I'm sure I'm late to the party on Ms. Monae, but if you're also tardy to the party, you should check her out. She has a lovely face, and she's yet another Atlanta Lady!
