What we said on Instagram.
‘Lemonade’ was released in 2016 by Beyoncé. It’s the American singers 6th album. It is a ‘visual’ album in that it is accompanied by a 65 minute film. We haven’t watched the film yet but the album is sensational. It’s aggressive, warm and witty. We’re assuming it’s an album inspired by her husband Jay-Z being unfaithful in 2014, if it isn’t it wants us to think that. The beginning of the album is the equivalent of smashing up the room in a fit of rage. The rage then dissipates into sadness, reflection and bewilderment then ends with her later reconciliation with her husband. It features some superb cameos from Jack White, James Blake and Kendrick Lemar. It’s our only Beyonce record at the moment but I don’t think it will be for long. This record shouldn’t be sneered at as ‘mainstream’ or brandished with the ‘music these days isn’t as good as it used to be’ claptrap. Put aside your allegiances to indie, rock, metal, blues, acoustic, reggae, pop, whatever made you love music first and try this. It’s very, very good. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
