I hate to say again that I don't like it but I don't. I know it's just a snippet but that voice he's using is annoying... confused

I like both --- but especially the live snippet..

it's raw.. music

(still not easy to judge the song snippets -- on 29 secs only)

Let 2014 be purple:

I can't wait for the remaster! heart

It sounds more promising than RnR Affair.

The live version seems like a guitar breakdown in the song thats probably happens on the studio version.

I'm hoping so. And if not, I just hope the full rehearsal version is released. That guitar is off the hook.

blah blah blah

Seems to be a typical Prince pop rock effort...very basic...and not too interesting compared to more complicated rock or metal stuff.

Awesome! I heard the snippet before Dr. F removed it from his website.

Lovin it!!!!

He also posted it on YouTube and I went to the link which was immediately changed to private. Interesting.....

Funkenberry has updated the rehearsal clip post:

UPDATE: We had a studio version preview along with lyrics. It is not coming through the way it was intended and had to be taken down. Hope U guys enjoyed it while it was up....

And he's tweeted that he was asked to take it down.
