Prince is back with his new offering 3121. The album is full of classic Prince song's including the current single 'Black Sweat'. The first initial run of the CD will include 7 tickets that will grant those 7 lucky winners an intimate performance with Prince at his home in Los Angeles. Universal. 2006.
Add 3121 to the mounting pile of evidence: Prince is the black Beck. He's a whole lot sexier, no doubt, but there's more to both musicians than image. All-out weirdness for one. Edginess for another. And a fine-tuned sense of how to combine the two to create some of the decade's most vital music for a third. Prince--looking ageless in videos for the first two singles, the controversy-courting "Black Sweat" and the sauna-steeped "Te Amo Corazon"--proves fearless as ever here, folding fat slabs of disco-funk into rock, heaping measured doses of hip-hop atop soul-tinted jazz supports, and slamming Latin rhythms against old-school R&B riffs. Nothing sounds as slinky-stylish-smart. And nobody delivers quite so deliciously, especially when what they're delivering is ultimately a madcap sonic mash. The usual hype surrounding a Prince release attended this one; over the long-term, expect a few standouts within a way worth-it set to emerge. They include the danceable "Love"; the gospel-lite falsetto feast "Satisfied"; and the summer-breezy "Beautiful, Loved & Blessed." --Tammy La Gorce

Great album, much better than Musicology before it. Some slight weak songs like Incense and candles but some blinders like Fury and Love. Old school Prince. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Amazon Customer
That's right, I said it. If you are wondering where my head is at, I'm in the camp that thinks Sign of the Times is his best album, but my guilty pleasure is Parade. Read morePublished 10 months ago by reap
3121 is perhaps the best Prince album of the last decade.
that doesn't mean much.
it's something inherently tame about all his music since the 90s. Read more
These songs are a little different
a funk and soul album

After some fairly bad albums on the late 90s Prince got it back together with this and Musicology. Solid work, funky grooves, good times.Published 15 months ago by Walter Sanders
