In my few decades on this planet, I’ve become jaded about concept albums. Either the concept is too vague to unify the songs, or it’s so weird that it ruins what might have been. Luckily, Ms. Monae uses subtlety in expressing her weird theme. There’s some android revolution going on in the background of her music, but honestly, I pay it zero attentions. I usually only like about half of her music, so little that the theme misses me. That makes me feel like a half-fan, like I’m fake if I don’t appreciate everything that she’s offering. But that half that I like? I REALLY like it, so oh well! Half-fan it is!
