READ

A.V. Club
At 71 minutes, Cookie eschews the consistency of its near-perfect predecessor, but it’s not necessary: NdegeOcello explores questions without answers hereand her complex journey is a glorious destination in and of itself. […]

Slant Magazine
With her latest effort, Cookie: The Anthropological Mixtape, the singer is as unsatisfied as ever, once again taking on perennial hot topics like capitalist corruption, ghetto life and same-sex love. As always, her revolution goes hand-in-hand with personal (and sexual) revelation. […]

Shaking Through
Cookie is an intentionally conflicted albumand the incongruity and inherent messiness of politics actually works in its favor. Ndegeocello obviously uses her music as an outlet for personal as well as global concernsand will continue to do so as long as people plunk down hard earned cash for her music. Yet it’s still product, like Nike shoes, BMWs and Victoria’s Secret lingerie. […]
