"Dirty Computer" is definitely one of my favourite albums! It has everything I want in an album, from feel-good songs that lift your mood to sad songs that get you in your feelings. "Make Me Feel" is such an upbeat song and it's great to dance to! The same goes for "Screwed" with Zoë Kravitz and "Pynk" with Grimes, and a couple others. The messages in some of the songs in this album are inspiring, patriotic, and overcoming. There are some songs with more political messages, which are so unique and unheard of these days. Janelle Monáe deserves so much more popularity and fame than she has right now. There are no other artists like her and I think that her music deserves to be played more often. "Dirty Computer" is a talent-filled mix of everything and more! I give this album a 5/5 with confidence! @peraltiago4ever of the Hamilton Public Library Teen Review Board

A genius that is due much more credit and popularity than she has. I love her work.

I'm so excited to discover Janelle Monáe is originally from Kansas City, Kansas; thanks to Kate R for this recommendation!

Third full-length album from the inventive and unpredictable Janelle Monae. Despite the title (A riff on "OK Computer"?), this is her most physical album (She talks a lot about her, um, lady parts.), a dizzying and infectious mix of R&B, hip-hop, soul, pop, electronics, Prince, and more! It's a sign of the album's eclecticism that guests include Pharrell, Grimes, Zoe Kravitz, and Brian Wilson. One of the year's best albums.

Something new from the multi-talented artist.

This album!! I haven't been hit this hard by an entire album in a long time, but this is such a work of genius, from start to finish, it got inside my head on the first listen and refuses to leave. It's a science fiction funk-soul-pop masterpiece where each song on its own is great, but all the songs together transcend into something bigger. Really, all I can add is more exclamation marks. So...!!!!!!

This is the best album of the year, so far. And its gonna take a LOT to top it. This album has EVERYthing. Its bouncy, danceable, and fun; with smart empowering, topical and sexy lyrics . There’s not really a bad song on the album; but there ARE, by my count, SIX standouts.
