You don't think it deserves a mention for best of 07?


Best what? Exhibition of lyrical mediocrity by a once-great writer?


Also competing in the "Unashamed display of melodic dullness by a once-great composer" category.

Planet Earth : Badly Produced, annoyingly arranged, kinda-composed, and poorly performed by Prince...

It was mediocre, seems like he was mainly trying to prove something by giving it away than caring about how it sold at the time. I think he still has hopes for 'Chelsea Rodgers' tho.

I'll be damned.

It's actually no 12 in Spin's list :

http://www.spin.com/featu...ums/20-11/

PRINCE
Planet Earth
Eschewing the it's-all-about-the-art platitudes that bog down so many of his fellow prestige acts, Prince announced his return to immediately pleasurable songwriting on Planet Earth's buzzing lead single: "I love you, baby / Just not like I love my guitar." From the jangle pop of "The One U Wanna C" to a clutch of slow jams, the whole album bursts with a directness Prince hasn't shown in years -- which doesn't mean there aren't loads of idiosyncratic details. In "Mr. Goodnight," his idea of foreplay is watching Chocolat on the big screen. M.W.

If the second half had lived up to the first half, it would have landed in my top 5. It's a pretty drastic fall-off in quality, like he just rushed it out. Still, I LOVE the title track, SHOE, 1 U Wanna C, Guitar--think they're 4 of the best tracks he's released in a long time.
