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!

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

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.

This is the thing, I'd almost prefer it if Prince was making offensively bad shlock, but he's just treading on nothing now - I can't believe actual thought processes go into making tunes like this. It's like a demo song on Garageband.

I'd rather see The Revolution reunite than The Smiths. I saw Prince with these 3 chicks a few weeks ago and while the guitar player was decent the drummer was awful. Basically sounded like a bar band playing very boring rock music for 60% of the show and a bad rock band covering Prince classics the other 40%.

weird. when i saw them the drummer was very good, the bass player was fantastic, and the guitar player was technically quite capable but either didn't have or wasn't hired to demonstrate any interesting musical ideas. It's like we saw a completely different show. Crazy!

Wasn't Songs in the Key of Life the first album Stevie did post-C&M? I think he knew what he was doing with that one. o_O

MIGUEL 3D: THEY FLY @ U FACE (The Reverend), Saturday, 25 May 2013 21:07 (10 months ago) Permalink

Yup. One of them accused him of just sticking with presets for everything. The songs and sequencing are strong enough to mask it, but there's no doubt that from a production standpoint the album is a big sonic step down from the four preceding it.

Not Simone Choule (Eric H.), Saturday, 25 May 2013 21:31 (10 months ago) Permalink

Well, maybe a "BIG" step down is overstating it. It just has a notably tinnier feel.

Not Simone Choule (Eric H.), Saturday, 25 May 2013 21:32 (10 months ago) Permalink

This is a Prince thread but you people are talking shit. Cecil and Margouleff were pissed that they didn't get credit for the work they did on Key of Life before they fell out with Stevie. Plus, that record makes brilliant use of the Yamaha GX-1 a.k.a. "The Dream Machine," which didn't have any presets IIRC. To the extent that Stevie did start using presets, it was in the 80s.

So wtf, Prince is rumored to be playing George Lucas's wedding reception maybe right now, down in Hyde Park, on Chicago's south side? And he's definitely playing a show at City Winery tonight, later. I couldn't care less if I ever see him live again - his a dick to his fans and so far from a sure thing - but always fun when these things pop up.
