( amazon customer) "RENAISSANCE (the first act in a sprawling genre swirling trilogy of albums) is dirty decadent "Disco Trap" (as Queen Bey coins her newest sound in the spirited and powerful groove "Heated"). RENAISSANCE is fantasy (vogue worthy "Alien Superstar"), RENAISSANCE is dreamy (honey sweet jazzy jam "Plastic Off The Sofa"), sweaty (the Grace Jones and Tems assisted night out anthem "Move"), sexy (hypnotic and funky album centerpiece "Virgo's Groove" which unfolds like three excellent songs in one) and luxurious self-affirming escapism in a time we need it most. Creatively curated during the pale bleakness of the pandemic, it makes sense why the album is energetically neon-drenched and dripping with glittering finery, RENAISSANCE is meant to be a hyper stylistic jolt of aspirational hope for enriching fun and living life fully present. The music is invigorating, enthralling (Beyoncé delivers such fresh vocal compositions here and sophisticated sonic structures around her voice, exercising it in ways she rarely does) and inspires unphased self-confidence and self-resilience. It feels like your ears and entire being are stepping into a modern-day ultra-chic Studio 54 of Beyoncé's wildest dreams and Club Renaissance is her answer to fill that void, where no hate or harmful shade will be tolerated. To fully appreciate this beautiful album, one must know the gorgeous history and legacy of Black Queer culture (specifically the late 70's to early 90's New York Ballroom scene and it's bawdy brazen House music), various textures of African music like Afrobeat, some Afropunk, Southern Hip-Hop/Bounce and Soul that inspires it. Beyoncé and her creative collaborators made it a point to shine a comprehensive light on the Black Queer creatives and allies that made it possible for this music to be created in the first place. This is why "Break My Soul" featuring sampled vocals from Big Freedia encouraging us to "release the wiggle," and a sample of "Show Me Love" by Robin S. (a huge 90's House classic) being the first single near the end of Pride month sets such a strong tone. While the album is not political in an obvious way, much-needed messages of pride, self-love (sleek, snapping and sassy T.S. Madison vocal sampling "Cozy"), unjudged and unrestricted bodily autonomy (the raucous and layered "Church Girl"), aware sexual freedom (deliciously distorted and most experimental track "All Up In Your Mind") and liberation are at the core of the songs. These real-life inspirations are what birthed House music. RENAISSANCE act i much like House music is about liberation, joy, building community and sharpening that inner ferocity within to fight whatever or whoever may seek to oppress one's truth."
