Synopsis

Album Description
2010 release, the fifth studio album from the R&B/Neo-Soul superstar. In contrast to New Amerykah Part One (4th World War), which was digitally produced and political in tone, New Amerykah Part Two: Return of the Ankh features lush live instrumentation and taps into Badu's emotional side by thematically focusing on romance and relationships. "We used a lot of analog instruments...harps, strings, drums, piano, and even a Theremin, to give the album that sonic feel," says Badu. "There's a strong undercurrent of bottom, a rumbling to these songs that feels good to me. It feels like a hug."

CD Reviews

Amerykah Realized...
Jivon Jackson | Fort Washington, Maryland USA | 09/15/2010
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I have know idea why it took me so long to review one of the best CD's cds 2010. This album picks up where its predecessor left off and takes it to a whole other level. For me the whole project is about "Out Of My Mind, Just In Time". Amazing song, in fact if there were no other song on the CD I would still be just as happy with this project. As a bonus, the rest of the songs are also engrossing, including the lead single "Window Seat", "Can't Turn Me Away", and "20 Feet Tall". It took me some time to understand "New Amerykah Part 1", but there was mo learning curve here. Keep the music coming Erykah..."
Fantastic

"I am very glad that I bought this album. After buying her debut pretty much as soon as it came out in 1997, I'd not bought anything new from her for years. I'd kept an eye out on her new singles here and there but I'd always play and enjoy Baduizm. Recently I was playing it far too often and decided that I needed some new Erykah, and took the plunge on the new album, not really knowing any of the songs. I'm glad i did as the album is fantastic: smooth, fun, quirky, and she really does speak to my soul. This is right up there with Baduizm and will be played regularly for many years to come."
The Return of Badu

"Erykah Badu has did it again; every song off this album is absolutely perfect! Badu delivers that Neo-Soul sound that she is known for with the same intensity as she had in "Baduizm." Badu's vocals are superb which is especially showcased in the Jazzy piano-driven ballad "Out my Mind, Just in Time." I really love how Erykah continues to evolve and mystify her musical style. This album will not disappoint."
