As one of those foolish people who consistently held out hope of hearing D’Angelo on a track again, you get geeked when you run across links like the new Mark Ronson/D’Angelo collaboration, titled “Glass Mountain Trust.” This D’Angelo’s first real appearance on a record since showing up randomly and suddenly on Snoop Dogg’s “Imagine,” on his “Blue Carpet Treatment” release.
Now while I’ve listened to it several times at this point, I’m not too sure on how to feel about it just yet. I don’t adore it the way I want and I don’t hate it in the least… but I think the updated sound along with the obvious changes in D’Angelo vocal stylings has me a bit thrown right now. At the end of the day, I’m really just happy to hear the dude singing and actually see him actively recording with talented people. Just… keep that up for now, while I let this song grow on me.
