This album is the reason why I review music. When it comes down to it, being a music journalist is about waiting for that special moment to happen where I'm rendered speechless because of a record. I can critique music endlessly until I fall asleep, but albums like Banks' Goddess provide a struggle for me and that's when this gets fun. Banks will inevitably be compared to a list of artists that will stretch to War and Peace lengths, but when it comes down to it...there's no one like Banks. She may sound like anybody you can name drop, but she is the beginning of something totally fresh and new. In a perfect world, Goddess would kickstart a new golden age for pop music.
