The two previous full-lengths from H.E.R. were well received, to say the least. Although they were welcomed with acclaim, high chart placements, a platinum certification (for the first one), and a slew of Grammy accolades (for both), H.E.R. has remained insistent that neither was her debut album, as each one compiled EPs and added bonus material. Presented as her true first LP, Back of My Mind plays out like an assemblage itself. It contains an EP worth of previously released material dating back almost two years, and there's enough content -- an amount exceeding that of each compilation -- to fill a compact disc to capacity. This begins with a triumphant exhalation in the form of "We Made It" and then slips into a dim and labyrinthine corridor of slow jams and ballads with the odd subtle switch-up. Along the way, there are more guests than necessary. While Ty Dolla $ign's street gospel support on the title song is a fine match, H.E.R. more often is too accommodating, most so on the Lil Baby meeting "Find a Way," where she drops de rigueur references to her bag, haters, and one of rap's most popular luxury cars. On a more discreet level, however, "Bloody Waters" -- a heady Kaytranada production tricked out with a delectable Thundercat bassline -- is a brilliant sequel of sorts to her Academy Award-winning "Fight for You," another career high point with shades of sociopolitical Marvin Gaye circa 1971 and 1972. A few other songs stick out from the surplus of confessionals, late-night yearnings, and conflicted discourse that drifts along over soft beds of gently strummed guitar and trap-styled boom-and-skitter. The platinum "Damage" transforms Herb Alpert's "Making Love in the Rain" (produced by Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis with background vocals from Janet Jackson) from an expression of rapturous release to one of seductive threat. "Cheat Code" is like a follow-up chapter to wistful sample source "The Sweetest Thing" (fronted and co-written by Lauryn Hill); the lilt in H.E.R.'s voice on the hook hits like an unexpected jolt of grief. "Closer to Me" flips an aspirational early 2000s deep cut (by the undervalued Goapele) into a love song yearning for intimate repairment. Like "Bloody Waters," these standouts nod to an inspiration while being unmistakably H.E.R.
