CD Reviews

Early sounding & Experimental Prince
07/20/2002
(3 out of 5 stars)

"This is a 2 CD set featuring Prince's voice, and probably (though not listed) his guitar playing. Prince co-wrote only one song. Musically it's an interesting jazz album, heavy on the early 80's style synth/beat. Some of it is Prince-catchy, a lot of it sounds more like a jam session than an album. Expect something that sounds like "Controversy" but with his Purple highness using a lower voice and I think you'll be in the right state of mind to enjoy it. I'm more into 'Thieves in the Temple'/'Gold Experience'-type Prince so it just wasn't quite my cup of Tea."
