Bout time this album and period of his career got the props it rightly deserves. As one of my favourite Prince albums, I'm glad its what the orgs going on about at the moment.

Yuck. The album version of GOLD is pathetic. The live versions or the outtakes are so much better.

It is not known why FuNkeNsteiN capitalizes his name as he does, though some speculate sunlight deficiency caused by the most pimpified white guy afro in Nordic history.

Prince once said on a mag. I got a song better than Purple Rain...


I dont think it is...however since I cannot stand PR, I will take this and run with it.
Download all the shit hop that you can for your kids, neices, nephews, and their friends also. That will prevent them from going out and buying it and will prevent some shit hop sales. Every little bit helps - Andy

One of the cheesiest songs he ever did. I can't stand this cheese and in no way is it better than "Purple Rain."

The Gold Experience is an overrated album.

Besides I Hate U, Shhh, and The Most Beautiful Girl In The World, the album is cheesy and overrated. Dolphin and Gold have to be some of the cheesiest songs he's ever done. Garbage.

It's not better than Purple Rain (no song is, in my opinion), but it is a great song.

The lyrics are a little trite for some, but that doesn't bother me. The song has a wonderful energy, and the message sums up his 90's experience succinctly.

A little strong perhaps, but I more or less agree. Except I dont like Shhh at all. It was the one song during the summer in London where I couldn't wait for it to finish. Would have much preferred to hear Gold live.

It probably is his best album of the nineties (I prefer The Truth), but that's not saying much.

I've always thought TGE to be the 90's equivilent OF Purple Rain.

It's definately the best album of the 90's. All the songs sit extremely together. A very polished and well put together album.
