Solange’s When I Get Home is a lush, languid production. Eschewing traditional songcraft, Solange experiments with elements of jazz, ambient, soul, and hip-hop. The songs — all excellent — flow seamlessly into one another. It’s a hypnotic, atmospheric mood piece intended to be listened to in one sitting, as an album, rather than as a collection of radio-ready #1 hits. Expect gorgeous keys, intriguing vocal samples, soulful backing vocals, and powerful percussion in various time signatures. On this latest album, Solange pushes popular music several decades ahead into the future. Innovative, smart, and emotionally impactful.
