    Beyoncé’s ambitions outstrip those of her peers. ... Yes, Homecoming is one of the greatest live albums ever. If nothing else, the intention behind her performance makes it so. ... So much action. So many cues and rhythms, so much narrative momentum. Its melodic and rhythmic quotes need footnotes to fully absorb, and her voice resonates with history. Still, calling it the best live album of all time may be a stretch. ... Hell if I know, but it ranks way, way up there. ... So yeah, it’s fair to say that Beyoncé, and this work, is genius.

    Not only is Homecoming an artistically-sound triumph, it’s a cultural touchstone and, quite possibly, the live album of a generation.

    Homecoming is an important document of those [Coachella] performances, with careful mixing and engineering that render each track with stunning lucidity.

    An awe-inspiring greatest hits set.

    As far as concert albums go, Homecoming is a master class in technical prowess, crowd pleasing, and soulful substance. Channeling the spirit of African queen Nefertiti (whose image she adopted for this show), Beyoncé proved to be a ruler in her own right, lording over Coachella for two career-defining nights.

    My head was spinning with hands, I pecked the essence
    on the fly I tried not to fall asleep.
    These are the feathers that grew - rainbows
    My head was spinning with hands, I pecked the essence
    on the fly I tried not to fall asleep.
    These are the feathers that grew -
    rainbows are covered with dew...

    Faithful dove ay-ay
    I don't know who I'm calling.
    Is it heaven? which circle?
    Find you someday, dear friend.

    Apples, hearts do all night banging,
    the mystery cools, the candle burns.
    Flew closer, opened the beak
    and accidentally dropped " love."

    ...Eternity is just a brief moment,
    a whiff of butterflies, river - glare.
    What kind of bird is strange in the sky?
    Circling over you and it hurts me.

    It's just a MESS. I don't understand why it has 98 metacritic score. I think the reviewers are deaf?
