Poll: HitNRun Phase One Or HitNRun Phase Two?

As in Phase One is greater than Phase 2. Or not? That's my vote. What is yours? If you say "both" you're automatically a douche.

Hard to say. They are completely different

Phase 1, IMO, is Prince in sync with the times, an album made for the dancefloor. Phase 2 is more laid back, live band feel.

Peace

Phase One. It sounds more like an album, than a collection of odds-and-ends (even if both albums are just that).

Phase One just sounds more cohesive.

Mine was the extact opposite but now I'm in the same boat. Phase 1 just grew on me big time and Phase 2 just seems dull in comparison now. sad

as an album i have to go for PHASE TWO

having said that, Phase One does contain some extremely cool songs. like "hardrocklover" which is
probably the song i've listened to and enjoyed most over the past 10 years or so cool

but as an album i don't like Phase One, since it opens with a song that doesn't have Prince on vox,
it has 2 remixes i don't care for and although i love the track, i can't listen to "ain't about 2 stop" -
i just cringe too damn hard at the "if u're not a rita bot u're a bloodclot" or whatever it says.

the good tracks, are super good "shut this down", "xs face", "hardrocklover", "1000 X&O", "june"
i could listen to all day everyday. but the other tracks, not so much.

PHASE TWO is all a bit more subdued but i love all the tracks, apart from "stare" which i don't mind
but don't love either. but as an album it's way better than Phase One for me.

PHASE TWO is a great album, PHASE ONE makes for a supercool EP. smile

and true love lives on lollipops and crisps

I've actually only listened to each of them once, and I really don't like Phase 1 and I really love Phase 2. I expect each to start moving more toward the middle with time...

Easily Phase Two for me. There are a few enjoyable songs on Phase One but as an album it doesn't work for me.

Phase One for cohesion and a new approach. But it's quite obvious that most people would vote for Phase Two. It's what people expect from Prince these days. Old School instrumentation, less edgy, less experimental, full of the same stuff he has done for years already.

Another douche here.

They are so different and intentionally so, that there's no way I can pick one over the other... I actually think they're both incredibly strong records, and taken together give a great account of the breadth and depth of Prince's tastes and eclecticness...

Weakest track of both albums is Screwdriver, for me, which should have been added to Plectrum Electrum, as that album was weak anyway.... lol

Also, the best song on both is on Phase 2.... Groovy Potential is so full of joy and incredibly musicianship, a summation of the pure joy of music-making and music-listening...

Both records succeed in what they set out to do, but what each sets out to do is very different fomr each other .... one is 'this is where we're headed', the other is 'this is where we've come from'....

Phase One is Prince trying to sound like everyone else.

In Phase Two, Prince sounds like Prince.

Phase Two wins.
