Have at it! All threads are going to be directed here.
Studies have shown the ass crack of the average Prince fan to be abnormally large. This explains the ease and frequency of their panties bunching up in it.

Boom: Some sort of backwards message going on in between the verses. Wish I could download the mp3 to actually reverse it!

I'm digging it so far. Listening to the streams in a bar in Milwaukee. People passing by are digging the guitar and are shocked to hear it's Prince.

Crimson and Clover is not on the album from the site.

Also nothing happens when I tried to download the album.

Target must have required him to give them some sort of exclusive to allow early release on the web, which sabotages their release somewhat. to the end user it just looks like a money play - you can download early for $77 and then pay $12 to get the extra track (if you want to do it all legally). So the target promo is $12 for 3CDs but the hardcore fan ends up paying $90 for 3CDs...

Yeah, I think this is a pretty awful decision on Prince's part. A $77 pricetag, and you can't even get all the music from the CDs?

Feel Good, Feel Better, Feel Wonderful is more funky than that thing from a few years ago. Horns and a more punch bass line.

Absolutely loving this album, except for Love Like Jazz and 77 Beverly Park. 77 reminds me of Gamillah, which I never really liked either. Very mellow instrumental.


Worth mentioning that Crimson and Clover isn't on the download, it's exclusive to the target disc set. Download gets The Morning After as an exclusive.

This album is going to get played very loudly tomorrow cool biggrin .

Both. Can stream, or download one of two formats. 320Kbps MP3 files, or lossless audio wav files.

I thought 77 Beverly Park was going to be something like Darling Niki when it first started!

I'm listening to this album first, was going to listen straight through then go to MPLSound, but after $ was over, I had to rewind and listen to that one again.

Boom is the most creatively inspired Prince has sounded since The Rainbow Children.

I was listening to Mplsound while downloading, i had to cancel the download, i cant have that on my computer.
I dont like being labeled a hater, because i like prince, and i want to like all his new music, but that is as uninspired as anything he has ever done.

Lotusflow3r to me is much much better but i now think its wrong and too much to to think Prince will ever have any new ideas.

77 bucks, dam with stock brokers and bankers starving and covered in flies on the slumdog streets of Wall St. i feel a little ashamed to be indulging in this.

shoulda gone the Target route.

and lets not scare people with this TRC talk, no people it isnt that bad. its actually pretty good.

Crimson and Clover isn't included in the download version. It's only on the CD that's sold at the Target stores.
