A Seat at the Table is the third full-length album from Solange Knowles, and for our money will be the last time we have to explain that “she is Beyoncé’s sister”. It is one of the year's finest funk and soul records, feet in both genres and eloquently moving between the two with confidence and a trail of diverse influences in the mix. It is the archetypical “coming of age” album - as she hits 30 she has released a superbly politically aware album about, in essence, black womanhood. The confidence means that her performances are so measured, it actually feels like she is holding back, there is so much restraint in her delivery. That’s not to say it doesn’t have some wallop - it’s a sexy album for sure. It’s just so well produced, the samples create a perfect balance to the healing and protective vocals, always looking at American social equality and living today as a black woman.
