You know, its funny to me when people say that about Uptown Funk because it sounds ALOT more like various other 80's funk bands more than Prince to me. It has a small hint of The Time in it but sounds NOTHING like Prince, in musical composition or lyrics.

The horns are straight from prince, the time was all prince except for the vocals, the whole concept of uptown/mineapolis funk is prince.

Ummmm, I know The Time was all Prince.... but Uptown Funk's horns are nothing like what Prince was doing horn (or should I say synthesizer ) wise in the 80's.

Sounds like a fun little tune.

Dude give me a break. The song is a Time rip off.... Bronson would say it himself. Lol

The bass line has a Time feel to it. Bruno Mars attempts to have "smooth attitude" in his delivery like Morris Day. But besides that? No. I don't think it's a Time rip-off. Is it an obvious homage to 80's funk? Of course it is. And The Time is part of that. But I hate to point this out, but The Time (nor Prince) weren't the only bands doing funk in the 80's! It sounds more Gap Band influenced than The Time.

Reflection might come close, but again not top tier.

Reflection is top tier for me, just not the horrible album version. But the version from Tavis Smiley? That just may be the only time I've truly felt a complete Prince song in damn near 20 years.

Oh look, yet another instantly forgettable bland pop funk track that features him boasting. Because we don't yet have enough of that tripe yet, apparently.

Note how he's back to predictable party crap now he's had all the promo he could wrangle from Baltimore.





It is really bland.

Can somebody educate me, cause I'm coming off of caffeine right now, and can't really think straight. how do we know that this is part of a summer release of new music? I'm confused.
I can't see where this indicates anything is coming this summer. It might as well be the same thing as "2013 is going to be huge!", but even that at least was explicitly stated by the Prince camp. I can't see anything that says we're getting new music this summer.

Besides, AOA and PE were just released last fall.



The bigger-than-LoveSymbol Thunder boom at the end is a dramatic acknowledgement of how bland it is.

What? Its acoustic, just him and Wendy on guitars. Simple, heartfelt, perfect.

I'm usually hypercritical, but I don't hear anything bland at all. It has all kinds of cool goodness simmering about. It just stays in it's groove like classic Prince used to. The dissonant guitar juxaposed with another guitar, while the bass plays it's on thing and it interweeves with the higher pitch melody. It's awesome.

It's all just guitars, bass and drums. All interplaying with each other. No synths. No nothing just guitars and a drum. I love the cleanness of it. It's all in the musicianship of the man to create such a simple yet complex groove come off so accessible.

I hope the rest is like this, I hope he doesnt goof it up with all kinds of other shit to it. If I agree with some, it's the explossion thing at the end of the snippets. It lacked cornyness up until that point. But I really dig this little groove. I like the empty space. I miss the empty space Prince used to great effect. Empty space is as cool as sound becasue it gives it that contrast.

I think if the rest of it lives up to this, then it would be the coolest track he has released in the longest time. Love love the groove.


I can see this playing on the radio. It's so stark. Just guitars and drums. This would cut through all the other noise being played today. I can see people bobbing their heads to this.

You described the snippets perfectly..... and that's my problem with them. It's too clean, too standard. I don't think Prince is good at making "standard" funk. Prince has always made great music with funky under and overtones but it wasn't standard. Erotic city is sludgy synth-funk. Housequake is dissonant horn-boosted funk. Girls & Boys is slinky pop-funk. Numerous tracks on 1999 are electro-funk. But just straight up, simple anybody can do it funk? Nah. That's something I dont think he should ever do.

Well then you can say Kiss is too clean, When Doves Cry, Sign Of The Times, Ballad Of Dorathy Parker, Starfish and Coffee, Bob George, on and on.

Prince was never about doing just one type of funk, but all kinds of music that cut through whatever was on the airwaves. And he was the master of letting all the individual elements shine through. Nowadays it has all sounded so muddy and heavy and syrupy and stuffy, and let's not forget corny.

To me this track is a breath of fresh air.

I'm very optimistic about this song. I like it way more than The X's Face or What If. It sounds organic and dynamic, energetic and some other word that ends in "ic."

See, I have to disagree. I would say most of those songs don't sound "clean" and at least half I wouldn't consider funk at all.

..and that's the thing that made Prince the legend he is, ..he was never a one note one trick pony. He was whatever he wanted and even made up his own genres along the way. You could never peg him in any one box.

You're absolutely right.... but my comment was about funk specifically, hence my confusion about why you mentioned some of those songs.

This is groove heavy Prince...Very throwback in terms of its instrumentation. I could imagine something like this coming out during the Black Album---LoveSexy era.

On the real, I'm kinda shocked to hear some folks calling these snippets run-of-the-mill funk....Or complaining about its boastful, party lyrics....It's as if they never heard "Let's Work" and a million other Prince songs....

I think this sounds like a "cool, fun" song....It's playful Prince with some sneaky complexity groove wise....It's warm yet still retains that "weird" Prince vibe with some tongue-in-cheek swagger....

I will reserve final judgement on this joint until I hear the whole thing...But so far so good...

Indeed.....The crazy part is who knows? The entire song could end up sounding like some ol' bullshit....lol.....But I do like the heartbeat of the song thus far. I like the fact that it sounds pretty stripped down and laser focused in terms of its execution. Straight-no-chaser funk but with that eye-winking Prince energy.....Gotta hear the rest though. But Prince def. sounds energized.....

Eye wonder why "The Gold Standard" wasn't released as a single? Why prince doesn't play it live? That song is a HOT funk work out! It stayed in rotation on Kco0L-Fm.What happen to A.O.A.? Why wasn't it pushed by WBR? It could have been HUGE!

But thank God prince is so gifted & prolific,he can come up with another slammin album in a week. Then put it out the next summer.

eye will ALWAYS think of prince like a "ACT OF GOD"! N another realm. eye mean of all people who might of been aliens or angels.if found out that prince wasn't of this earth, eye would not have been that surprised. R.I.P. prince

some folks can't be pleased, it is just one of the many reasons Prince ignores their comments.

it's kinda like Prince from 1999 to 2013 for me. Just not interesting...
