Peace Beyond Passion (Explicit)
Released: Jun 1996
The sophomore LP from the limitlessly talented Ndegeocello continues to explore issues of identity and spirituality over a supple bed of punchy jazz licks and polished soul grooves. Thematically confrontational (sample title: "Laviticus: F*gg*t"), Passion tries to reconcile her spiritual yearnings with her weariness of religious zealotry. The thinking woman's R&B.
