4 years pass...

Yo, while me and Q-Tip were performing 'Vivrant Thing' in Vegas last night...this n-a Prince walked out on the stage, took the guitar from our guitar player and just started rocking! None of us knew he was there until he popped up on the stage...then the n-a vanished like Batman, LOL!

The sound crew said Prince was in the balcony watching the show from the very beginning (The balcony was closed off). Then when 'Vivrant Thing' came out, he just came backstage and walked out on stage.

None of us knew what was happening, then when we finished the show he was gone LOL!

WTF is Prince using MS Songsmith now?

might seem normal but is actually (snoball), Friday, 26 February 2010 17:35 (4 years ago) Permalink

i want to say "nothing can ever erase the work he did in the 80s" but i somehow wonder if this song is actually capable of erasing the master tape to "if i was your girlfriend"

for HOOM the bell tolls (M@tt He1ges0n), Friday, 26 February 2010 17:39 (4 years ago) Permalink

With the amount of stuff going on in the background it sounds like he recorded over the top of something. In case anyone is wondering what the reverse bit at ~3:30 is, it's Prince saying "contracts just make you smaller".

might seem normal but is actually (snoball), Friday, 26 February 2010 17:41 (4 years ago) Permalink

the problem with all of prince's stuff from the 90s on is that i think he fundamentally misunderstands what made him great at one time.

he's a great minimalist that thinks he's a maximalist.

for HOOM the bell tolls (M@tt He1ges0n), Friday, 26 February 2010 17:44 (4 years ago) Permalink

eh he's done some good minimalist stuff since the 90s - Black Sweat, for ex.

i can't listen to this at work but it's probably for the best.

it's funny, i just listened to mplsound again and thought it wasn't that bad (if you have no expectations except for dad-prince).

like I could put up with the verse and I could put up with the chorus, but not both together in the same song; that is exactly the wrong thing to do, dude

Jack the Dude-Kicker (HI DERE), Friday, 26 February 2010 18:06 (4 years ago) Permalink

i should do a poll, this song versus his vikings playoff song, which sounded like the work of a slightly deranged lutheran church choir director

for HOOM the bell tolls (M@tt He1ges0n), Friday, 26 February 2010 18:07 (4 years ago) Permalink

at least the Vikings playoff song was awesome in its insanity; this is boring, mild-mannered shit that thinks it's shit-hot

j.k. but yeah that's the only song i've heard in years i thought was GOOD good not just "hey this is pretty good for prince now, i guess"

title tracks of musicology and 3121 were pretty good and stripped down imho. there was some other track on musicology that I liked but I'm blanking on it at the moment... but yeah his hit-to-miss ratio is pretty sad.

dead clown handjob (Shakey Mo Collier), Friday, 26 February 2010 18:09 (4 years ago) Permalink

Plectrum Electrum ranges from decent to super embarrassing ('why didn't anyone delete "FIXURLIFEUP" before it got to the mastering stage' is a question that may haunt me until I die) but ART OFFICIAL AGE is pretty damned enjoyable after I listened to it three times.

i feel like you could put tracks from AOA next to tracks from 3121 or Rave Un2 the Joy Fantastic or any number of other later albums and they'd all blend into the same waxy Botox version of 'Prince trying to be the cool quirky Prince you used to love.'

― Raccoon Newsy Wewsies (some dude), Sunday, October 12, 2014 4:06 PM Bookmark

3121 is my favorite late-era Prince album and AOA is my favorite since, so this hardly looks like a negative comparison to me.

yeah 3121 is cool. i'm just saying even the good stuff has a tryhard uncanny valley thing to it. a lot of my favorite later Prince stuff is the more classicist ballad stuff like "Call My Name" because it completely sidesteps the subtext of 'do i use modern drum machines? do i go back to the LinnDrum sounds?' anxiety.

The trick with Parade is how it keeps the psychedelia in check by turning up the funk and keeping the songs concise. I love how bits like "I Wonder U" sound innocuous at first but boast a filigree or two to keep you going and listening forever (i.e. the funk guitar and strings over the outro)
