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).Read more ›
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.Read more ›

|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
