Prince obviously has made a truck load of music - and to think to this present day, he still has hundreds of songs left in the vaults. Aside from music, he also decided to write a few films ("Purple Rain" he didn't write - surprisingly.) In 1986, he made the hilarious, kitschy and stylish "Under The Cherry Moon," which many critics panned. Then, in 1990, he made "Graffiti Bridge," which also got panned (Note: 1987's "Sign O' The Times" I believe was a concert flick, as opposed to an actual scripted film.) A complex and difficult to understand film, it mainly focused on spirituality. Supposedly, it was also a slightly altered follow-up to Prince's role as "the kid" in "Purple Rain."
Each of those films have soundtracks (of the same names of course.) So now, I won't talk much more about the movie. Instead, I'll talk about some of the underrated music found on this soundtrack and musical smorgasbord. There are many collaborations with such r&b/funk/pop artists as The Time, Tevin Campbell, George Clinton, Mavis Staples and several associates who would turn out to be members of Prince's band, The New Power Generation (the track of the same name probably gives hint of this.)
Plenty of diversity can be found here. There's Prince returning to his classic formula - singing and playing all the instruments to certain tracks like "Can't Stop This Feeling I Got," which shows off his instrumental skills (not to mention some [tail]-kicking guitar playing.) Funky, ...shaking numbers like The Time's "Release It," the sex-tinged Prince & George Clinton get up of "We Can Funk." ... "Tick, Tick, Bang," the hilarious, rowdy and rousing party number "The Latest Fashion," which is performed by The Time & Prince, and the very cool lady power of "Melody Cool," performed by Mavis Staples.

In 1990, Prince filmed a movie called Graffiti Bridge, which was a so-called sequel to his phenomenal 1984 film, Purple Rain. Yep, that one absolutely bombed and critics panned it to the ground. But, some of the music in that film contained some great music. The soundtrack isn't just a Prince album and it shouldn't be considered that because other artists perfrom here. This soundtrack was an all in all mixed bag. There's much to like here and the styles of music that are presented on this album is half brilliant and half dull. The opening track, "Can't Stop This Feeling I Got" is an elegant rock song with uninspired guitar hooks and bumping drum patterns. "New Power Generation" is a bumping, new-jack urban track that is one of the best on here. "Release It" is a track performed by The Time and it sounds different from anything they previously recorded. It's more of a hip-hop flavored tune, full of loops. "The Question of U" is another great, yet seductive song on this album. On this song, he does some incredible bluesy guitar work. The song is a slow, blues and old-school R&B ballad with everything you would love in a Prince ballad. "Elephants And Flowers" is a fun-based, catchy track with wild, yet funky instrumentation. "Round And Round" is a song by the young Tevin Campbell; that is a decent filler track with uninspired synthesizer work and patterned drum sequences. "We Can Funk" has Prince doing a steamy collaboration with funk master, George Clinton. The song is so funky and sexy at the same time. "Joy in Repetition" is another slow jam on here with Prince doing yet another soaring guitar solo with some airy and soft instrumentation being played in the background.Read more ›

Format: Audio CD
There are some great tracks here amidst a variety of enervated clunkers. Part of the problem is that this is a soundtrack to the movie of the same name, and soundtracks are sometimes linked (and given more depth) by the scenes in which they appear. The anthemic (I wish he'd get away from those) title track is good, but lacks the emotional impact that it might have on the big screen. Several of these tracks just sound too homogenized and bereft of emotion; for example, "Still Would Stand All Time," "Elephants and Flowers," and "New Power Generation." Then there's the annoying "Can't Stop This Feeling I Got"; I can't help but feeling this sounds too much like Kenny Loggins (!) "Footloose" (another soundtrack title cut).
Here's the good news: Mavis Staples, Mavis Staples, Mavis Staples. On "Melody Kool," her rich husky voice is soaked in soul; Prince performs all the instruments. "Question of You" - equal parts Robert Cray and Bela Lugosi, Prince hits his stride with this ballad, as he does on "Joy of Repetition." ON `Joy' he seems interested in the music again, and there's some excellent screaming guitar work here. "Love Machine" with Morris Day and Elisa on vocals, is either a tribute or a mocking of Michael Jackson, in any event, it's playful and danceable. Finally, "Shake" is an old-fashioned rocker, with great cheesy organ effects, it's like a 50's or garage band song if you had a few million dollars for superb sound.
Some of the "big" songs have some excitement to them; "NPG (part II) has a nice messy sound with a genuine-sounding rap. It moves along nicely, but still needs some instrumentation or vocals to cut through the wall. On the mediocre numbers, there's simply too much background, and not enough foreground... again, this may be due partially to the requirements of a soundtrack. On the better numbers, Prince is superb.
