Biography

Few artists have created a body of work as rich and varied as Prince. During the '80s, he emerged as one of the most singular talents of the rock & roll era, capable of seamlessly tying together pop, funk, folk, and rock. Not only did he release a series of groundbreaking albums; he toured frequently, produced albums and wrote songs for many other artists, and recorded hundreds of ...

Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Because it would be un-Prince-like to release a new studio album without kicking up a little controversy first, the Artist Formerly Known As a Cool-Looking Symbol gave away copies of Planet Earth with a British news tabloid weeks before its U.S. release. Among the reasons he shouldn't have: nobody who catches wind of the peerless funk-rock-soul he lays out on these 10 tracks--least of all longtime fans--would think twice about shelling out for it. A big chunk of the appeal is that Prince finds his way back to his guitar here. The title track, a politically right-on-time environmental rant, steers him back toward "Purple Rain" territory, as does "Lion of Judah" ("Guitar," oddly, doesn't--it's more of a straight-up, shout-it-out modern rocker). And the flirty numbers are seriously flammable: "Somewhere Here on Earth" seduces with a crackly jazz vibe, while "Mr. Goodnight" gets friendly with a refined slip of rap. Coolest of all are two tracks at cross purposes-- "Chelsea Rodgers" fuses funk with disco until it's so far off the hook it's in a heap on the floor, and "All the Midnights in the World" paints a picture of artistic maturity through piano and lyrics that lean hard on positivity. There's an elegance to it that Prince fans, no strangers to pop music that's truly sublime, won't fail to appreciate. --Tammy La Gorce

Product Description

Simply put, Planet Earth is the album longtime Prince fans have been waiting for. Several cuts on this album revisit some of the classic Prince sound the captured fans all over the world and helped deem him an incomparable music icon. Superstar and legendary musician prince kicked off 2007 with a show stopping Super Bowls Half-time performance. Prince pulled out all the stops during the second most-watched super bowl broadcast ever. With an estimated 93.2 million viewers to entertain, Prince wasted no time showing off his stages powers and irrefutable guitar skills. He masterfully captured the attention and respect of music fans in general, while sending a message to long time Prince fans that he was ready to once again reign supreme.

As a huge Prince fan, I must say I like Prince's latest album very much.

I should begin this review by telling you what I was expecting from Planet Earth: not much. I've learned several painful lessons over the last 12 years, from various Prince stinkers (Stink-os & Disorder, Rave Un2 The Stink Fantastic, The Rainbow Stink), but the main lesson is this: Prince's fastball ain't what it used to be. I can accept that now. There was a time when I couldn't accept that, a time when I proclaimed Emancipation to be the greatest album of the 90s, and in fact as good as Purple Rain.

Now I'm older and hopefully more mature (though I did throw on Emancipation one more time the other night, still searching for that greatness I thought I once heard). After the horrific artistic crime that was The Rainbow Children, I officially gave up on Prince. It was SO CLEARLY OVER. And everyone knew it but pointy-headed critics and him.

But of course, as a fan I never stopped hoping. When Musicology came out, of course I bought it. However, I waited two whole months instead of rushing right out to get it. As an album, Musicology was definitely an improvement (which is like saying North is better than When I Was Cruel), but overall it was not a good album. I listened to it for a week and then put it away, saying he had gone away from pretentious concept junk and was back to putting out bland junk.

However, two songs did stick in my mind: "Call My Name", and "What Do You Want Me 2 Do?" Those two diamonds in the dogpile did provide a flicker of hope. And let me tell you, those two songs are as good as anything Prince has ever done (so is 1+1+1 Is 3, but it's on The Rainbow Children and that album is a total affront).

...because we're the only ones that will put up with such mediocre tripe from a man who knows better. First let me say that I love Prince, even when I chunk money down for stuff that should have never had a price tag on it. Not everything that pops in your head needs to be set to music. Overall, I like three songs on this: Guitar, Somewhere here on earth and Mr. Goodnight. Lyric wise: I could have written The one U want to C-probably like in the Junior High. Prince is very good writing senusal lyrics, but whenever he starts his political agenda stuff, it suddenly sounds juvenile and campy. Like: Planet Earth and Resolutions. He truely could have kept : All the midnights in the world. It's only tolerable because it's so short. While he's waxing proses about the problem with wars and people, I think the problem with telling certain people that they are musical geniuses is that they start slacking off and start pasting weak lyrics on recycled beats. Sorry, but some of these songs sound eerily familar. Still, I'm a sucker for my 80s icon and I'll continue to follow his music journey. Overall, get for your collection, but try to get yourself one of those free copies if you can.

Prior to "Planet Earth," the last Prince album I can say I liked (or at least kinda liked) was "Rave Unto the Joy Fantastic." The last two ("3121" and "Musicology") - though obviously both commercial comebacks - did next to nothing for me. They were just more additions to the growing list of disjointed, thrown-together sub-par works that Prince began releasing back in '94 with "Come" (though not including every album after that, just that the good ones were less and less frequent). I distinctly remember how distressing it was for an artist who was responsible for such a long line of carefully crafted albums to expect record buyers to be satisfied with willful sloppiness. Sure, with "Come" (and others) he was hurrying to get out of his Warner's contract - but all these years after the fact, what matters is the music...not his fued with the label. I continue to maintain that he hasn't released a truly great album since 1992's 'Symbol' album (and even that one was flawed, i.e. Tony M was still on board). And I still say that "The Truth" (i.e. disc 4 of "Crystal Ball") is the closest he's come to that greatness in the years since.

All that said, I'll reiterate: I like this new album. It turned out to be a nice surprise - not a major return to form, but a mostly consistently enjoyable collection of new songs. Are they all new? It's hard to say - I do have trouble believing all the musicians who are credited in the album's sparse (nearly non-existant, truth be told) liner notes turned up for recent sessions. Some of this music was quite possibly in the can for many years - the wildly varying tone, and overall sound, throughout the album supports this idea. Before delving into a song-by-song look, I'll summarize my overall feelings.

I have been a fan since I was 11 years old.. yeah back in 1981!
Prince is still THE artist of our time, before his time.
But I think he missed the boat with this CD.
I sometimes have to listen a couple of times before deciding what I like on his CDs, but I can't get thru this CD a second time. I do not enjoy it, and its sad to say, but true.
I enjoyed Musicology, but haven't REALLY loved a cd of his since Emancipation. Once you start to see Prince on Verizon Wireless commercials, you know its a different time....
Hope he brings the funk back the next time around.. many of us who have been fans from the beginning will be waiting..

Prince is giving this album away
This is Prince's way of saying "f..you to the corporate kloans that are ruining the record industry". It's the industries own fault for putting corporate greed over music. Take that one Metallica!! What a fake money hungry band!! As for the album I can't wait!!!

Uh, he continually works with other artists. The album "Rave Un2 The Joy Fantistic" features Gwen Stefani, Eve, Sheryl Crow, Chuck D. and more. He has worked with Madonna, Chaka Kahn, George Clinton, Mavis Staples, Miles Davis, and tons of others. I think what you want is him to make... Read More

Actually it was NBA player Carlos Boozer, not Terrell Owens, but the house address wasn't 3121 either. P put 3121 on the house gates but the address was something different. Nobody but Prince knows exactly what 3121 represents, they all add up to 7 and some have said its biblical reference but... Read More
