We gave it a B+

She’s tackled sexuality, race, and religion. Now, on her fifth release, Ndegeocello makes it clear she just wants to be loved. Don’t expect melancholy verses and descending bass lines — been there, done that, with 1999’s Grammy-nominated ”Bitter.” The emotions expressed here reside around the corner from the blues. ”Comfort Woman” is pure bliss. Dreamy, dub-inspired melodies, sparse guitar licks, and her hypnotic voice singing simple songs of love make this her first ”feel good” album.
