    Impressive personal statement that sees Sudan elevate nor only as a singer but as a songwriter and violinist. The clash of **** grooves and airy rnb highness in a foundation of deep stamping beats and layering. This album is a manifesto of femininity, dependent independence and joy. Definitely AOTY contender.

    impressive sophomore from Ms. Parks, she's evolving as a producer and flirting with 2000s pop culture, but making it artsy. the lyrics are very fun and it's probably an AOTY potential

    I really like this one. It’s a very smooth album, and I love how well the songs flow together. Overall a great album for easy listening, and I would personally recommend it to those who haven’t heard it.

    No albums this summer have quite distracted me from my other listening as NBPQ has. It is a truly incredible follow-up to Athena, featuring her most audacious and daring lyrics that exude a confidence that is so satisfying to see.

"Milk Me," "Loyal (EDD)," and "ChevyS10" are my personal standouts, but you can't go wrong with any of them. Expand

    Along with a numble of likeminded producers to help fulfill her vision, Parks comes across as an open book, delivering a lushly atmospheric portrayal of a woman who takes pleasure in living in the moment.

    Sudan Archives is proving that she is an artist who knows no bounds, and projects like this one are what is going to propel her further into acclaim and stardom.

    If the sound of Beyoncé‘s similarly sonically adventurous Renaissance whetted your appetite for challenging, demanding soul, then Sudan Archives’ latest could be just what you’re looking for.
