I love how she incorporates elements of "difficult" genres (with help from Raphael Saadiq) into a challenging and progressive pop album that takes its time to unfold. The album took me completely by surprise and I'd place it next to similarly unexpected pop/r&b records that really seemed to transcend the genres they were intended for or marketed to. I hear elements of What's Goin On, The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, The Hounds of Love, and Rhythm Nation 1814 and like the way it sounds when I get high to it.
