Diana Ross' first album of originals in over 20 years and first studio LP since the covers-oriented I Love You is neither the unqualified triumph nor the disgrace it could have been. Thank You is constructed as a major return. Although Ross co-wrote eight of the songs and did some of the recording at her home studio, it involves multiple teams of writers and producers, was pieced together from other sessions in Los Angeles, New York, Miami, and London, and features the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and London Symphony Orchestra separately on over half the cuts. Ross seems much more invested in these songs than she did on her 1999 and 2006 efforts. She puts her all into these positive messages of gratitude, support, and unity, no matter how much the lyrics resemble mixed-and-matched phrases from inspirational memes. Conviction is always evident in her soothing voice, even when it's modulated to a jarring extent or sounds somewhat garbled. The clearest bid for a smash is the one produced by hitmaker Jack Antonoff, "I Still Believe," whose fully tricked-out modern disco is so sweeping and grand that Annie Clark's guitar is barely audible. That and other songs clearly attempt to recapture moments from Ross' past -- the Supremes era and later solo ballads and dancefloor hits -- and then there's "Beautiful Love," a ballad that seems to have Lionel Richie's "Hello" in mind despite its maternal perspective. That song is among eight collaborations with Troy Miller (Laura Mvula, Gregory Porter). The four made with the hipper Triangle Park team are more adventurous, veering from the stiff dancefloor jumble "Tomorrow" to "Let's Do It," a motivational number that finely melds U.K. garage and synth funk (a world apart from the like-titled Cole Porter composition Ross reinterpreted on Blue).

Thank You is constructed as a major return.

She puts her all into these positive messages of gratitude, support, and unity, no matter how much the lyrics resemble mixed-and-matched phrases from inspirational memes.

Neo Soul in 10 Albums

In the midst of the 90s when hip-hop was going through its golden age, a revolution within soul music was also underway. With Erykah Badu, D’angelo, Jill Scott and many others, the genre found again its class: an echo of the simplicity and refinement that brought to life the albums of Marvin Gaye, Curtis Mayfield and Roberta Flack. After years in the shadow of the reigning ultra-commercial and soft R&B, the noticeably more underground Neo Soul, or Nu Soul, relit the flame of soul music and returned it to its roots in terms of both composition and lyricism. A brief but highly influential movement.

What's Going On, Marvin ?

In the beginning, there was "What's Going On", one of the greatest soul records ever, released 50 years ago. This is the story of how Marvin Gaye changed the history of the Motown label and of popular music in the 1970s.

Motown, the sound of the young America

The label founded by Berry Gordy almost 60 years ago remains the last word on pop soul. A hit factory whose workers included Diana Ross, Marvin Gaye, Smokey Robinson, Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, Rick James, or the Temptations...
