Sometimes I think "this is obviously Comfort Woman". And sometimes I think "this is obviously The World Has Made Me..." And sometimes I think "this is obviously Bitter". And so on.

I should really listen to her stuff after 1996.

i'm just very very certain that you'll love everything about comfort woman->the world has made->devils halo

Very tough. I have a lot of love for the first two.

Bitter by a mile.

Yes Alfred you should definitely go to Comfort Woman next. It's not necessarily the best (it's not necessarily not, but... and I agree with Brad that could easily be Devil's Halo) but it feels like the right re-acquaintance point.

Also definitely one of the sexiest albums ever made IMO.

Devil's Halo is the one I listen to most often (which is still only two or three times a year, but still).

Plantation Lullabies is not top tier Meshell for me (broadly, I think Meshell is stronger the further she drifts from traditional notions of funk), but I discovered "Dred Loc" at age eleven through some random ass promo comp my dad brought home from work, and it remains all-time for me.

(Same producer as "Waiting" and "Secret Garden" from Erotica, and it shares their super lush sound).

Weather, closely followed by Devil's Halo, with the caveat that I haven't heard the three in between Bitter and The World Has Made Me... or the Nina Simone covers one.

I only have comet, come to me and i love it. One of the artists i discovered via ilm. There is a lot of listening to do. Two weeks should be enough to find out my fave, i hope.

World Has Made Me is one of the best albums of the 2000s

I think Weather and Bitter have stuck really deeply with me

i love plantation lullabies, dance of the infidel, pour une âme souveraine and comet, come to me. it is pretty hard to choose. i still haven't listened to weather in its entirety. the others are ok but they do not rock my world.

Alex in Spree-Athen (alex in mainhattan), Monday, 8 May 2017 21:03 (two months ago) Permalink

I've been listening to these albums a lot in order to confirm my ranking. I'm not anywhere closer but it's been fun really homing in on deep cuts like "Trust" from Cookie and "A Different Girl (Every Night)" from The World Has Made Me...

Automatic thread bump. This poll is closing tomorrow.

well i guess i'm glad i voted for comfort woman

ToddBonzalez (BradNelson), Saturday, 20 May 2017 00:04 (two months ago) Permalink

Now I wish I had! I switched to Devil's Halo at the final furlong.

Tim F, Saturday, 20 May 2017 02:23 (two months ago) Permalink

Weather is great but it sounds to me like a more minor work compared to the albums that preceded it. OTOH "Objects in the Mirror are Closer than they Appear" is fantastic (and excellently titled).
