Indivisible even when they're devoted to solo recordings -- Young Spirit, Overload, and Vweto II account for the artists' full-length dispatches from the previous two years alone -- and featured together on synchronous output from keen collaborators like Dabrye and the Mixtapers, Georgia Anne Muldrow and Dudley Perkins return with their third album as G&D. The two don't reconvene musically so much as they simply keep boogieing from project to project. On Black Love & War, they channel love for one another and their people, vexation in the face of escalating tyranny, and seemingly inextinguishable positivity into some of their most determined and stimulating funk. Perkins, gruff and lucid as ever, doesn't sugarcoat brutality or the objective in what Muldrow calls the "fight against greed," but he's bullish on a turnaround. His partner is just as militant and optimistic, whether she's chanting "One-eight-seven on a slave master" on "187," imagining clean air and water on "Peace Peace," or soothing and impelling on "The Battle." The latter track exemplifies the LP's underlying theme of resolute resistance over one of Muldrow's sci-fi blaxploitation-grade beats: "Sometimes you gotta stand and fight the battle -- don't let misery win over your mind." Communal in spirit still, Muldrow and Perkins aren't above ceding the producer's chair or the mike to their friends. Suitably dramatic sounds from Oh No and Mike & Keys fill three tracks. Muldrow in fact hands off an especially galvanizing production to Aloe Blacc, Ms. Dezy, and under-recorded funkateer LaToiya Williams for "Smile," a cheery and lopsided composite of the Doobie Brothers and Earth, Wind & Fire. All three vocalists shine, and Perkins drops in for a guest verse, beaming as he offers "We all should be smilin' just knowin' that the devil's reign is almost through." Coming from the rapper who on the same album laments murdered innocent children and eulogizes his father, the statement carries a whole lot of weight. ~ Andy Kellman

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.
