    This album takes 5 plays to decode. It takes another 5 plays to fully appreciate. Many people will struggle to devote this kind of time to listening these days. It is a work of near-genius that is beyond the comprehension of the mindless masses. Keywords: Endtime/Space/Love/Suicide/Rock/African chants/Despair.

  1. Ultimately, The World Has Made Me the Man of My Dreams, with its irony, sincerity, seeming contradiction, and elliptical paradox, is the most expansive, complex record yet released by this always provocative artist.
  2. Even in its duller moments--the flaccid ballad 'Shirk,' the truncated sax solo that closes 'Virgo,' rainbow messages from God ('Elliptical')--this record fails to depart from the serious verve that has kept this artist relevant and refreshing for years.
  3. Ndegeocello's dreamy vocal styles buttress this boudoir-freindly work. [28 Sep 2007, p.106]
