#6 Beyoncé – Homecoming The Live Album

# 6 on the People’s Top ten Albums of 2019

I’ve never been a huge Beyoncé fan. I don’t really know why. I don’t think I have a real reason. Which leads to my initial reaction.

Initial Reaction: This album has 40 tracks. FORTY! A run time of almost 2 hours. 1 hour and 49 minutes in fact. I was a little worried about that. How am I going to listen to Beyonce for 2 hours. Actually, it wasn’t as bad as it sounds.

Favorite Song: I have to give it her, she has a lot of hits… I mean a lot. Of all the songs on the album, there was maybe two I didn’t know. Since this is recording of her performance at Coachella, the songs are shortened and with banter to the crowd. So I didn’t find the need to save a ton of the songs, but I did save two. I already have the original version of “Don’t Hurt Yourself” and it’s one of my favorites. I love it’s dirty beat, and the live version is just as good. So, yep, saved. The second is “Run the World (Girls)”. No, it’s not masterful song writing. But it’s catchy, it makes me want to dance and it makes me feel powerful. Sue me. LOL

Would I listen to the whole album again: Immediately I thought no, but then I changed my mind. I would say its a good album to put on while your trying to get something done. Clean your house, shake your ass, do the laundry, twerk. Let your inner Sasha Fierce out. Nostalgia points for her bringing out Kelly and Michelle and doing a few Destiny’s Child songs.
