I guess that he plans something bigger than just a new album. Maybe the first remastered albums in a box set? Or some new special internet activities? More NPG Festivals like the one in Denmark in 2010? I hope for the release of old live/studio material since his announcement in the short "Screwdriver" rehearsal clip. To me this seems most likely.

he already said something about bootlegs for days and the valut. Maybe that question he was asked about all the songs in the valut made him think.

FYI: there are some Orgers I ignore. So when I do not reply to them... that is why.

This has to do with vault material, remasters (he's worked out a deal with WB and has gained control of his babies) and touring, starting U.S. New Orleans of course. With a 3 hour after show .

I had a Prince dream last night. Came out of nowhere. Well maybe it was the radio station playing 1999 at midnight. He came to my house to play a private concert for me and 100 of my closest friends.. When he arrived, he was a rude little shit, no surprises there. I said welcome to my home Prince. He gave me that " Why is this little man speaking to me look". And asked me, where is my band?..... fast forward in my dream. Gerome on my telephone and Prince walks over and hands him a new album. ( I'm trying my hardest to remember the title but can't. lol ) Gerome is telling Morris that this new album is fonkayy, and that he should go to the wrekka stow to get a copy.....

Fast forward... Prince and the band tears my house up. New jams, treasures, and gems from the vault.
Right before I woke up wink , Prince walks over to me and hands me a paper bag with his new album, some unreleased stuff from his vault and works from various artists he's produced this year.
He says I'm sorry, we must go now.

This is a True story ya'll. I'm sitting here wring it all down before I forget.
Happy New Year Orgers. Looking forward to the goodies in 2013.
Prince did an interview with a woman at Record World. They talked about whatever, then he asked her: "Does your pubic hair go up to your navel?" At that moment, we thought maybe we shouldn't encourage him to do interviews.

I so wish for a year like 2004, where Prince went from being completely off the cultural radar to majorly relevant again. I don't expect that but that was just such a fun year. We'll see...

Yeah I think the most one can hope for thats different is a new cd that he will actually play live and what you mentioned.

I mean a tour has to be part of it because the posted band tryout of the song Scewdriver.

I've had one dream about Prince since 1979, and I can't remember a thing about it except that it was weird (like most dreams, I suppose). If you're not kidding around, the one you had last night was awesome and most of it was pretty positive. I'm a bit jaded when it comes to Prince's promises, but I hope he does something that satisfies most of us this year. Anyhow, thanks for sharing your dream, and Happy New Year to you and everyone else as well! hug party

In what way?

Album-newspaper deals?

Raw turnover?

Profit?

Amount of shows?

Cities visited?

Amount of visitors?

Creative freedoms, new directions?

Artistic content versus hits?

Top-40 positions? (multiple)

Actual project management quality w.r.t. tourplanning and execution?

Etc, Etc, etc....

So what did he mean?

Prince said in a 2012 interview when asked about the vault: "Someone else will probably have to release it after I'm dead."

I actually saw that as a sign of progress. ;-)

Someone could probably live in the vault for years with little more than bread and water and a daily nap before crawling out all stammered and Van Winkled with a 5-disc box set of studio juice so freakishly potent that it could reanimate Frankenstein's monster and an ongoing, annual bootleg series in perpetuity that would straighten even Dylan's curly grays.

But for better or worse, depending on your unique perspective on life, Prince has always been far more of an artist than an archivist. Not that you can't do both, but it would require loosening that death grip he appears to still have on control.

Besides, it's time for any questionable promises to start appearing in the blu-ray format. [rimshot]

That assumes that there's video of decent quality to begin with.

I'd rather see a few decent audio releases. Uncut. Un-remixed, un-reproduced.

Always hopeful for proper remasters but I like to see my chickens before I count them. More than likely we'll just get a new album. Which is nice but then he is a musician and the releasing of albums is quite a common thing for that profession.

He actually said thank you eek He must have been on the old sherry when he wrote that lol

Anyway while we have Prince in a thankful mood...........

Dear Mr Nelson,

I feel compelled to write, you probably won’t read it so I’m on a wing and prayer with this...

Thank you for giving us an entertaining year, with your ideas and interesting productions and releases, its been like a novel you can’t put down, it’s been fascinating year from you as usual.

Now we have you in a generous mood may I suggest a few requests from you this year for 2013? Hope you don’t think this is too forward as I know you’re a very busy man playing with your guitar all day lol, sorry just joking. Seriously I know your life is demanding with making deals, sorting out band members throwing proteges out your pockets and doors from left right and centre and just basically looking after the whole Paisley Park empire.

Here is my list of suggestions, this is not in everyone’s taste but I think you would benefit highly from them:

1. Some people want remasters etc, me personally I don’t think you should look backwards but forwards your eyes are in the front of your head not at the back so this includes when you do your next tour is to promote your new album thoroughly.

2. Bring out a dark funky rocky album preferably like Lotusflower but darker, you don't have to swear or cuss for it to be dark just go back to basics you know what I’m saying P.

This will guarantee a number 1 and gain rep from the so call ‘music critics’, I know majority of them can’t even play a single musical note to save there lives but there writers, remember publicity in their mags is good.

3. Tour in Europe preferably London. This maybe a selfish idea, you know this works perfectly for you as you made the list as one of the top performers ever when you did your stint at the o2.

4. Now Mr Nelson lets get straight to the point with this one, I know you still have the database addresses from all the Lotusflowers members including there bank details (naughty naughty). May I suggest you dig that out and give a gig to all the members only? Say from each major city (London New York Paris etc) for promotional album gig? When beyonce did a intimate album gig at the koko, London it was gig of the year. Now this would work extremely favourable with the press and fans. Again major rep points, remember people won't stop talking about you for years to decades on that one.

5. This last one is more of a gripe: I don’t think a new website is needed but one wouldn’t hurt just for info and pre released gigs say? It worked well for the 3121 site. Because them ticket touts buy all the tickets up and sell it back to the concert goer at extortionary prices putting them off going to see there fav artist, and Ticketmaster continue to allow this to happen. Again bags of rep from fans on that one too.

Just like to say you look fantastic in that picture.

Have a Happy and wonderful New Year biggrin

And may I say please retire the sampler set in concert. Prince, you are at the top of your league musically as are your fellow NPG musicians. Would rather hear the songs played live than a canned mix.

Look forward to all Prince will bring in 2013 and we will be there to support it all.

I so wish for a year like 2004, where Prince went from being completely off the cultural radar to majorly relevant again. I don't expect that but that was just such a fun year. We'll see...

It could happen. It's not like it takes magic. Prince can be very successful in the mainstream when he chooses to promote/showup/participate/play.

I guess that he plans something bigger than just a new album. Maybe the first remastered albums in a box set? Or some new special internet activities? More NPG Festivals like the one in Denmark in 2010? I hope for the release of old live/studio material since his announcement in the short "Screwdriver" rehearsal clip. To me this seems most likely.

Join his new website, R&RLA.com for $3121.00 dollars (lifetime membership), $1999.00 (annual membership) or $21.10 (daily membership).

You'll receive 7 remixes of "Rock & Roll Love Affair", a t-shirt (TBD) and exclusive access to music videos like "Kiss", "Raspberry Beret" and "1999", 10 new CD's (one song each, plus a full CD of Prince's newest hot, female protege), along with 15 second snippets of great new material, first crack at crashing the website when concert tickets go on sale, a bible, and a whole lot really cool, super awesome game-changing stuff (we really mean it this time!), like cologne, calendars and books filled with pictures of hotel doorknobs. Plus enticing announcements about future plans and a censored message board!

Order now! But don't ask us where your t-shirt is.

Man. No shit.

For Christmas, I got the Led Zeppelin DVD/CD reunion concert package (Celebration Day) and that shit delivered big time. I got a DVD of the show, a double CD of the same show and a bonus DVD of rehearsal footage/documentary of same. As I was watching it (in complete awe), I couldn't help but think how simple and easy it would be for Prince to do something like this and really deliver something worthwhile and professional to his fans, but he's so busy scrubbing shit we really want to see and hear off of YouTube to really be bothered delivering a product we want and baiting his fans with increasing promises of "something really big" that it just gets tiresome.

How many of us would double down and pony up for a 3 DVD box set of, say, Purple Rain, Lovesexy and Musicolgy live shows, professionally mixed and offically sanctioned, combined with an outtakes/vault CD of good sounding tracks like "All Day/All Night" and "G-Spot"? Is that so hard? Jimmy Page is like 70 years old and a complete burnout but he shredded that reunion show and still finds ways to make Led Zeppelin commercially marketable and please his fan base without being a total sell out.

I think a new album is almost definite (due to Rock and Roll Love Affair, Screwdriver, and maybe even Love) although of course he has "released" non album singles a few times over the last five years.

That is the least we can hope for.

I must admit the significance of the 35th anniversary of the release of For You is tempting to get excited about. Again we have had hints that he has already started receiving the rights to his masters on the 30 year anniversary (meaning he may have already had For You in his ownership for 5 years), perhaps due to a unique agreement he had with WB Records. All speculation of course and we don't know for sure. A box set of ALL the remastered WB albums coinciding with his debut anniversary would of course be awesome but let's not get ahead of ourselves, this remains just us giving him our wish list again.

One thing seems sure though. We will be getting "new" Prince music released this year.

He looks good love smile! Cant wait for what's to come, hopefully it's full of surprises and great things, but sometimes we hope too much and get dissapointed with what we get (it's normal because we have these illusions from his past work that was great). I hope the sound he's working on is nothing like R&R Affair because it makes me cringe everytime I hear it but screwdriver sounds better. Anyways hopefully we get something amazing ! I hope he comes back to Europe again!!! biggrin

I can't wait for the Carnegie Hall Tribute and Benefit, as well as, any additional opportunities to celebration his incredible life and his outstanding gifts, talents, skills and energies from his unlimited artistic, musical, vocal and philanthropic vision ...may 2013 be a wonderful year of blessings for all of us and especially enjoying the gifts of Prince sun

At the end of the day it's simply music from a musician. Putting too much stock into Prince is where it goes wrong for most fans.

Dear Prince,

It's hard for us to trust your promises because we have been burned so many times before. You've stifled the org's once beautiful gallery, you've sued mothers on youtube, and you've limited your distribution channels to where you don't even have true International releases anymore.

For this, I could never fully trust you again. However, under the circumstances, I would gladly sleep with you.

He actually said thank you eek He must have been on the old sherry when he wrote that lol

Anyway while we have Prince in a thankful mood...........

Dear Mr Nelson,

I feel compelled to write, you probably won’t read it so I’m on a wing and prayer with this...

Thank you for giving us an entertaining year, with your ideas and interesting productions and releases, its been like a novel you can’t put down, it’s been fascinating year from you as usual.

Now we have you in a generous mood may I suggest a few requests from you this year for 2013? Hope you don’t think this is too forward as I know you’re a very busy man playing with your guitar all day lol, sorry just joking. Seriously I know your life is demanding with making deals, sorting out band members throwing proteges out your pockets and doors from left right and centre and just basically looking after the whole Paisley Park empire.

Here is my list of suggestions, this is not in everyone’s taste but I think you would benefit highly from them:

1. Some people want remasters etc, me personally I don’t think you should look backwards but forwards your eyes are in the front of your head not at the back so this includes when you do your next tour is to promote your new album thoroughly.

2. Bring out a dark funky rocky album preferably like Lotusflower but darker, you don't have to swear or cuss for it to be dark just go back to basics you know what I’m saying P.

This will guarantee a number 1 and gain rep from the so call ‘music critics’, I know majority of them can’t even play a single musical note to save there lives but there writers, remember publicity in their mags is good.

3. Tour in Europe preferably London. This maybe a selfish idea, you know this works perfectly for you as you made the list as one of the top performers ever when you did your stint at the o2.

4. Now Mr Nelson lets get straight to the point with this one, I know you still have the database addresses from all the Lotusflowers members including there bank details (naughty naughty). May I suggest you dig that out and give a gig to all the members only? Say from each major city (London New York Paris etc) for promotional album gig? When beyonce did a intimate album gig at the koko, London it was gig of the year. Now this would work extremely favourable with the press and fans. Again major rep points, remember people won't stop talking about you for years to decades on that one.

5. This last one is more of a gripe: I don’t think a new website is needed but one wouldn’t hurt just for info and pre released gigs say? It worked well for the 3121 site. Because them ticket touts buy all the tickets up and sell it back to the concert goer at extortionary prices putting them off going to see there fav artist, and Ticketmaster continue to allow this to happen. Again bags of rep from fans on that one too.

Just like to say you look fantastic in that picture.

Have a Happy and wonderful New Year biggrin

Afraid we have heard this all before. Prince's attention span is smaller than a gnat's. Personally I hope for (but won't get):

1. A new album (single disc would be fine = 12 great tracks no filler)

2. A tour of the UK (a residence at O2 would be fine)

3. Remastered WB back catalogue complete with b-sides and rarities

4. Some more vault material released

5. DVD of the 2007 O2 performance(s)

hmmm I wonder whether any of this is more than a dream?

Sorry about that but needed to pick myself off the floor. While I totally agree with your album style preference (dark funky rock) the chances of Prince having a number 1 in 2013 are about ZERO.

He is no longer relevant to the YOOF of today. He is as removed and irrelevant to them as Elvis was to me (I'm 43) in my teens.

Did U look at the charts when Lotuflow3r first week sales came out?Prince would have went #1 if Keith Urban's label didn't play major record label poilitics. Did U miss the number #1 debut of Prince's half a million sold 3121?That was just a few years ago. Ur so clueless.I wonder why peeps even bother to post without knowing facts about Prince.

Exactly. If someone wants to hear something that could be a "hit" these days, let them turn on the radio and they can hear all the tired mess they want.

Woah cool it man! It's a bit strong to call me "clueless" - I would consider myself pretty clued up on all things prince thanks (just do not feel the need to spend my life on Prince.org and post nearly 7,000 posts).

2006 will have been SEVEN years ago by the time a new album (if indeed there is one) is released. The world has moved on. Even the Beatles didn't score a no.1 when they released some previously unreleased material in 95/96 and they have sold ten times what Prince has (and their Anthology release at the time was multi-platinum)! 3121 and Lotusflow3r were both only Gold in the US and nothing elsewhere!

I truly do not believe Prince will ever get a number 1 again - because he is too good for the mostly musically uneducated kids of today who buy manufactured crap!

Hey you know if he does manage to score big time sales-wise and chart position wise then great. Personally I do not care though. I just want new music.

My guess at the "something big" is to be the opening act for the Olympic Stadium, London, when it opens as a music venue in July 2013. Doesn't get much bigger than that! Would tie in nicely with a new album release in Europe. biggrin

i think something big is just a new album release with (maybe) a lot of promo and some other stuff, with maybe a long tour.

The speculation on this site is probably 80% of the eventual complaints posted after a project does get released. A snippet becomes the theme of the new release. A new hairstyle is the look of the new era. Sometimes thank you is just thank you and when someone says to wait for it maybe you should.

As of February 1, 2012, Lotusflower has sold 543,700 units. Keith Urbans album has gone Platinum in US, Australia and Canada. Even if he had a strong opening the album sure didn't sell as well as Urban. I'm sure people would have said WB rigged the charts as well back in the day. It was happening with many artists. Sony had Pepsi buying up MJ records to get his chart positions. But charts don't mater much, exposure does. And he does not do well with sustained visibility for his records as they drop. Sure, he could chart AND sell better, but he seems to have no idea how to get a coherent promotions team together. People STILL know when a Springsteen, Madonna or U2 record is dropping.

U are so clueless. I don't even know why I'm bothering to respond. It doesn't matter if Keith went platinum or not. I bet U he still didn't make as much as Prince did selling half of that from only ONE retailer. Also those artist U all mentioned had major record label backing.

I agree with KCOOLMUZIQ that comparing LotusFlow3r 2 anything by Keith Urban is apples and oranges. But I agree fully with Zannaloaf that Prince doesn't know "how to get a coherent promotions team together" -- and this leads 2 his albums going nowhere. LotusFlow3r.com kind of looked promising until the t-shirt fiasco derailed it. Other than the initial CD release concerts in LA and a Tonight Show performance, Prince didn't support LotusFlow3r in the rest of the USA with any concerts or in-store appearances. Ultimately, the CD struggled to move at almost every single Target -- and was clearance-priced at $1.99 in the summer of 2010.

KCOOLMUZIQ, U are kind of incorrect about how LotusFlow3r was distributed. It wasn't only released at Target USA, that was only the original release exclusivity about it. About a month after its Target USA release, it became available 2 record stores worldwide (even Walmart here in Canada carried it!), and it also had an official vinyl release in France (as well as the single CD and vinyl versions of MPLSound were released in France). Other than some European concerts, Prince didn't do any concerts or promo 4 LotusFlow3r anywhere else. And then we were far too soon on2 the magnificent 20TEN...

Prince being an independent artist has given him the freedom to try different methods of releasing & distributing his "MasterPieces". In some cases he has been brilliant. But in order to acheive greatness U have to not be afraid to fall & be able to get back up & try again. Prince being so prolific has given him many chances to throw his "MasterPieces" out & see where they land. U have to give him credit for trying.

Prince himself said he will not release anymore music. Until he finds a better way for it to be distributed & compensated correctly for it. Now obviously with "WHAT'S' BIG COMING". He has finally found a better way for us to experience his MasterPieces" the right way.

So be poaitive stop living in the past & let the magnificent astound U .

He actually said thank you eek He must have been on the old sherry when he wrote that lol

Anyway while we have Prince in a thankful mood...........

Dear Mr Nelson,

I feel compelled to write, you probably won’t read it so I’m on a wing and prayer with this...

Thank you for giving us an entertaining year, with your ideas and interesting productions and releases, its been like a novel you can’t put down, it’s been fascinating year from you as usual.

Now we have you in a generous mood may I suggest a few requests from you this year for 2013? Hope you don’t think this is too forward as I know you’re a very busy man playing with your guitar all day lol, sorry just joking. Seriously I know your life is demanding with making deals, sorting out band members throwing proteges out your pockets and doors from left right and centre and just basically looking after the whole Paisley Park empire.

Here is my list of suggestions, this is not in everyone’s taste but I think you would benefit highly from them:

1. Some people want remasters etc, me personally I don’t think you should look backwards but forwards your eyes are in the front of your head not at the back so this includes when you do your next tour is to promote your new album thoroughly.

2. Bring out a dark funky rocky album preferably like Lotusflower but darker, you don't have to swear or cuss for it to be dark just go back to basics you know what I’m saying P.

This will guarantee a number 1 and gain rep from the so call ‘music critics’, I know majority of them can’t even play a single musical note to save there lives but there writers, remember publicity in their mags is good.

3. Tour in Europe preferably London. This maybe a selfish idea, you know this works perfectly for you as you made the list as one of the top performers ever when you did your stint at the o2.

4. Now Mr Nelson lets get straight to the point with this one, I know you still have the database addresses from all the Lotusflowers members including there bank details (naughty naughty). May I suggest you dig that out and give a gig to all the members only? Say from each major city (London New York Paris etc) for promotional album gig? When beyonce did a intimate album gig at the koko, London it was gig of the year. Now this would work extremely favourable with the press and fans. Again major rep points, remember people won't stop talking about you for years to decades on that one.

5. This last one is more of a gripe: I don’t think a new website is needed but one wouldn’t hurt just for info and pre released gigs say? It worked well for the 3121 site. Because them ticket touts buy all the tickets up and sell it back to the concert goer at extortionary prices putting them off going to see there fav artist, and Ticketmaster continue to allow this to happen. Again bags of rep from fans on that one too.

Just like to say you look fantastic in that picture.

Have a Happy and wonderful New Year biggrin

Ms Park

Dude - this "conversation" started because I disagreed that Prince could score a No.1 and you started spouting on about sales figures. Now when someone else points out that his sales were not as impressive as others at that time you swap arguments to be about what his earnings (might have been) in comparison (BTW unless you are either Prince or Urban then you have no accurate way of knowing how much either earn and it is all speculation). These are two completely different issues.

So I maintain my point - I would be extremely surprised if Prince could score a No.1 again (certainly not without a major label behind him).

I'm wishing for New Orleans to be his first stop, however I'm thinking Philly & Las Vegas will be first and soon.
Prince did an interview with a woman at Record World. They talked about whatever, then he asked her: "Does your pubic hair go up to your navel?" At that moment, we thought maybe we shouldn't encourage him to do interviews.

Who cares if the next Prince album goes to number one? I'm just hoping for a set of music that's not catering to the mainstream. Prince's biggest success was when he was being creative and different. Not trying to fit in with the status quo.

This rumor of a double album is quite exciting. When's the last time we got one of those? 1987? LF/MPLSound don't count. And neither does Emancipation. biggrin

i don't think we really ever had one. i mean, sign o the times was firstly intended as something

that would have filled 3 discs, but it was recorded and conceived as LP format, right?

so if he'd actually set out to record a 2 disc album, that would be a first for him. he's always

gone over the top with 3 disc packages, but never a nice 2 disc set.

it would be very interesting to see how he would approach such a task. i think it would be very

good if he tried. it would give him room to incorporate more things into an album. there would

be room for both rock and funk but also some more weird and goofy stuff.

i'm very excited biggrin

If prince wants to know what to do in 2013 he should check out Jack Whites set on Austin City Limits. On Fire. Now that would be a collaboration .

A pop record.

Popularity can be measured in amounts of youtube views.

So yes, it was quite popular.

But popular stuff does not necessarily equal music with certain qualities that we look for.

Who cares if the next Prince album goes to number one? I'm just hoping for a set of music that's not catering to the mainstream. Prince's biggest success was when he was being creative and different. Not trying to fit in with the status quo.

So a number one is not that unlikely...we will see smile

Rock and roll love affair, the single, showed that with some promotion, a new single by him gets airplay at major radio stations...a thing we haven`t seen in germany a long time;)

Aha - and therein lies part of the problem in terms of perspective. I was not specifically talking about the US - so my bad! I am UK based where none of his last three albums charted.

Having said that you do not mention 20ten which didn't chart in the US either (no official release I know, ie no newspaper willing to echo what he did in UK etc so perhaps a moot point).

Anyway as I said previously, I just want a great album. If it is a chart hit also then that's just fine! Maybe I will eat my words smile

What happened?

This thread about

Prince being nice to his fans by thanking them

and he is enthusiastic to let his fanbase know he is working on someting,

turned into orgers venting negativity of the past.

I don't want to argue that Prince has been a great guy troughout his career. That just is not the case, he's done pretty low things.

But, my mom always told me to forgive others, because you also want to be forgiven for your mistakes. And then she would say:

"He who is without sin among you, let him be the first to throw a stone at her."

And that still is my adagium.

It seems as if people here get their life fuel by bitching about Prince.

Why spend so much energy in something that makes you feel so negative?

Well, even though SOTT was conceived as a triple album when it was called Crystal Ball, that's not what we ended up getting. I think it counts as a double album. 1999 I guess is different because when you buy it on CD, all of the songs fit onto one disc. But it was always referred to as a double album before CD's came out.

2013 might be big, but probably not for Prince...

I think his songwriting, as demonstrated on RnR Love Affair, is more lacklustre than ever (and the number of mixes of this song suggests that he truly believes this is a great tune - where's the quality control or a sense of objectivity?). He really needs to check out artists like Coldplay, Lana del Rey and others who seem far superior at the songwriting game. Like them or not, their best songs are full of drama, emotion, twists and turns. And in the end, it's about the songs and melodies, not the "technical skills" or musicianship. Prince probably considers himself superior to my two examples here, but they don't aim at being multiinstrumentalists or becoming experts at any instrument - you don't need that to be a great songwriter (no better example than McCartney/Lennon). Their focus is on the songs. Prince lost that focus or dedication somewhere along the line. And that's why 2013 won't be so great for him...

Well Per, you know music consumption is all just a matter of taste and subjectivity. I can't sit through even one song by Coldplay or Lana, much less an entire album, as they bore me to tears. Just like there are certain Prince songs I can't bring myself to listen to (Temptation, Annie Christian, Jughead, Arrogance/The Flow, Another Like Me, Cause & Effect, etc). The list goes on.

However, I can't really make a blanket statement about his talent because certain songs don't move me. Prince has always been inconsistent to my particular musical taste. There are things that grab me, there are things I detest, and there are things that just plain bore me. But he has always been his own quality control for better and for worse, which is something one just has to accept to be a Prince fan.

It is horrible to say maybe, but I yawn at this whole "2013 will be big" thing. I am afraid we'll just get another "trying to please 'em all" release like we've had so many before. A few ballads, a few rock songs, an "experimental" cut, and one or two funky tunes that don't really hit hard.

So the new album better be raw, wild, experimental and very funky. And/Or have extreme interesting production techniques. Otherwise I am not interested anymore, I'm afraid. Prince's albums have been too safe/MOR for my taste for a long time now, bar one or two songs on each album maybe. And the lyrics are mostly horrible or uninteresting these days.

I am starting to get in the camp of the people who think current Prince is just a bad impersonator of the Real Deal we were accustomed to in the eighties. My believe in his abilities are waning, to be honest.

I might cheer up when I actually hear the new album, but I fail to get excited at this point.

Prince should work more careful. I think the sound design of his latest releases is quite weak. Sounds like he’s producing with presets only. Today I drove in my car and gave 2 CDs a spin : new Bruno Mars & 20Ten …on more time ! Bruno Mars is pretty damn good produced. Parts of the song « Treasure » and maybe 2,3 other songs made me think about how it would sound if Prince would appear on one of those tracks and tear the roof off (check Treasure). Overall Unorthodox Jukebox is boring mainstream stuff to me. (Frank Ocean has also nice sound ideas…)

...princey...no? haha


Compared to this major releases 20Ten sounds pretty bad produced to me (maybe I’m wrong…tell me). Prince’s guitar sound is the only thing i get excited about. The synthesizers are often damn crappy sounding… just cheap (programmed drums too!) !

I like the addition of Donna Grantis. It gives some rawness back to the Prince sound (btw her album is pretty cool production and sound… i feel that !) But he should maybe better call Bobby Sparks to fix that synth and keyboard problem… ! smile

Bambi rehearsal is my fav. I like that « new » , « raw » style of P ! Go on ! The BIG difference between Frank, Bruno, Lana, Coldplay,.... and Prince: Prince ist the master in the Pop industry when it comes to the skills as a musician! That made his music unique and much more interesting than the rest in that genre... for me!

ROCK ON Prince! Fits so good to you!
