This is a wonderful collection of some of the finest music created. It's music that will ring eternal and Erykah Badu has chosen some of the finest and least obvious albums to be included. Badu's essays are a wonderful read as are those by Afrobeat historian and celebrated music journalist Chris May
Utopia is a pastel chalk painting full of smudged edges. It is an album that takes a commitment on the part of the listener and will give you a different outcome each time you journey with it depending on what choices you make as a participant. It is an ambitious, deeply immersive and haunting album that promises you a better world is possible. Once again Björk has created an album that sits high and proud. Original, defiant, passionate and lustful. An absolutely extraordinary album.
