Meshell Ndegeocello – Comet, Come to Me [Favorite Album of the Week]

You may or may not recognize the name Meshell Ndegeocello, but she is most notable for her record “Fool of Me” from her 1999 album Bitter, which gained popularity from the movie Love & Basketball as part of the soundtrack. Meshell has released several moderately successful albums over the years, both as a solo artist and a member of the group Rare Essence. She is an artist that the mainstream music listerner has never been completely aware of, but she does maintain a consistent and loyal following.

Ndegeocello (pronounced N-deh-gay-o-chel-o) new release Comet, Come to Me, is a hodgepodge of sounds with her voice as the only aligning driving force. As a listener, this album will provide you with rock, reggae, soul and jazz. Tracks worth focusing on as introduction to the album are “Forget My Name”, “Conviction” and the title track “Comet, Come to Me”.
