VINYL FORMAT. Voodoo hit store shelves on January 25th 2000, just a few weeks after the New Year celebrations to end them all. But the first great album of the new millennium was born in the 1990s, and its muggy grooves capture the sound of premillennial anxiety. The album is the product of perfectionism, obsession and paranoia. 1995's debut Brown Sugar had already strategically positioned D'Angelo-born Michael Eugene Archer and Virginia- raised to a Pentecostal preacher father- as the next Hendrix-like deity in black music, after Prince and maybe Lenny Kravitz. But since its release, D'Angelo had become distracted by weed and weightlifting, he'd been shaken by the deaths of Tupac Shakur and The Notorious B.I.G. and debilitated by sophomore pressure. In the interim he'd fathered two children, switched managers and jumped to a new record label.

The concept behind Voodoo was simple. Put together a brilliant ensemble of R&B musicians bent on grooving together. Record them live, in real-time, jamming face-to-face in an effort to capture their conviviality and chemistry. For Voodoo's core rhythm trio, D'Angelo recruited his friend and colleague, The Roots' visionary drummer Ahmir '?uestlove' Thompson, plus Welsh journeyman Pino Palladino to hold down the bass. It was a combination that gelled immediately. Voodoo was like crack for purists-this was Real Music, serious as a heart attack, deeply reverent and worshipful of the past.
