Comfort Woman (2003)

EW's GRADE
B+

Details Release Date: Oct 14, 2003; Lead Performance: Me'Shell Ndegeocello

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.
