It does prove that there is light at the end of the mostly mundane R&B/dance/electro tunnel.
Opener and first single Losing You throws straight into the quirk that's evident throughout, with jungle-esque beats and emotive lyrical familiarity. Some Things Never Seem To Fucking Work simple, polished production, but its grit pushes past the '80s pop-ballad trench. The subtly sexy Don't Let Me Down is magnetic with its heavy drum and bass lines and Bad Girls gives a solid nod to Prince.
True doesn't stretch far from its slow-to-mid-tempo range and next time we want Solange to offer something more up-tempo in her post-pop phase, just for variety. It does prove that there is light at the end of the mostly mundane R&B/dance/electro tunnel.
