And that’s fine. Bey has every right to do exactly what he wants. I also have a right to look at it and see something different. And let’s be real about Sun - Ra (your example), he’s a pretty esoteric artist as is AND Space is a place is available for the masses to hear. If that album, or even that movie, was given Read more
