It didn’t take long for Victoria Monét to bring us the next installment of her Nightmares & Lullabies series.  And as iffy as we thought the first act was, that’s how much we enjoy Act II.  The songs here are much stronger lyrically and there appears to be a cohesive narrative developing between the tracks.  The production still has that style that we have come to associate with Monét and each could stand on its own as each has its own internal dynamics that make them interesting in themselves.  The songstress’ vocals are lovely and add just the right of adlibs and sweetness to make the tracks have resonance.  While soft in tone, she manages to effortlessly ride each production without sinking below the tides.  With all the improvement we see here, we can’t wait until act three.
