four years pass...

Yo, while me and Q-Tip were performing 'Vivrant Thing' in Vegas last night...this n-a Prince walked out on the stage, took the guitar from our guitar player and just started rocking! None of us knew he was there until he popped up on the stage...then the n-a vanished like Batman, LOL!

The sound crew said Prince was in the balcony watching the show from the very beginning (The balcony was closed off). Then when 'Vivrant Thing' came out, he just came backstage and walked out on stage.

None of us knew what was happening, then when we finished the show he was gone LOL!

WTF is Prince using MS Songsmith now?

might seem normal but is actually (snoball), Friday, 26 February 2010 17:35 (eleven years ago) link

i want to say "nothing can ever erase the work he did in the 80s" but i somehow wonder if this song is actually capable of erasing the master tape to "if i was your girlfriend"

for HOOM the bell tolls (M@tt He1ges0n), Friday, 26 February 2010 17:39 (eleven years ago) link

With the amount of stuff going on in the background it sounds like he recorded over the top of something. In case anyone is wondering what the reverse bit at ~3:30 is, it's Prince saying "contracts just make you smaller".

might seem normal but is actually (snoball), Friday, 26 February 2010 17:41 (eleven years ago) link

the problem with all of prince's stuff from the 90s on is that i think he fundamentally misunderstands what made him great at one time.

he's a great minimalist that thinks he's a maximalist.

for HOOM the bell tolls (M@tt He1ges0n), Friday, 26 February 2010 17:44 (eleven years ago) link

eh he's done some good minimalist stuff since the 90s - Black Sweat, for ex.

Jack the Dude-Kicker (HI DERE), Friday, 26 February 2010 18:06 (eleven years ago) link

i should do a poll, this song versus his vikings playoff song, which sounded like the work of a slightly deranged lutheran church choir director

title tracks of musicology and 3121 were pretty good and stripped down imho. there was some other track on musicology that I liked but I'm blanking on it at the moment... but yeah his hit-to-miss ratio is pretty sad.

I hope it's good. I didn't like 20Ten from the same year but it had a pair of keepers that I put on a personal compilation of Prince's later work.

Wouldn't mind seeing your tracklist for that compilation tbh.

I really liked much of 20Ten for its one-man-band vibe. He sounded like he had fun making it. Doubt this one will have that same feel with the list of collaborators involved but who knows?

SQUIRREL MEAT!! (Capitaine Jay Vee), Thursday, 8 April 2021 16:15 (one month ago) link

Sure. I burned this a few months after Prince died. Covers the studio work following Emancipation (1996).

FWIW I have Musicology, 3121, Art Official Age and Hit n Run Phase Two, so even though they're covered, there's other stuff I like on them that I left out for space.

Disappointing but not surprising. Based on what's out there (which is probably a good sampling of his archives, even if it's arguably a small fraction of it), it just seems unlikely that Prince would bury a good album in the vault while putting out something as disappointing as 20Ten. If it is good, it's usually picked apart and reconfigured into something else. The closest thing to a lost classic is The Black Album which did go to press and was released six years later anyway, so it's a fairly atypical case.

birdistheword, Saturday, 10 April 2021 06:12 (one month ago) link

"Welcome 2 America. The unreleased studio vault album that documents Prince’s concerns, hopes and visions for a shifting society. Available July 30th. Pre-Order Now."

Some snippets here from CBS at the weekend -

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3vjB9fgjfg0

If I were the estate I'd have made an album of his political songs over the last two decades and released it as a compilation.

candyman, Tuesday, 13 April 2021 08:27 (three weeks ago) link

More here, though cant say I'm super excited about this 2010 album. I think they're just trying to market it to reposition prince as more of a thinker than most people see him as being.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lN0Lw8NebDI

candyman, Tuesday, 13 April 2021 09:22 (three weeks ago) link

i get that presenting prince as an "artist of this moment" is smart from a marketing perspective but his political acumen was generally not his strongest suit for the long game.
"Welcome to America" sounds like a Disposable Heroes of Hiphoprisy b-side and not in a good way. "Distracted by the features of the iPhone/In other words taken by a pretty face (somebody's watching u)/hook up later at the iPad" and a handful of Bush senior quotes don't bode well for the lyrical freshness here.

I mean, dude was a Jehovah's Witness, anti gay marriage and believed in chemtrails I don't think the estate is going to benefit from digging too deep into his beliefs

princes politics as heard in his music changed quite a lot in the last few decades. i personally prefer what he used to do which was just donate to causes he believed in, rather than try to put it in a song and get to sermonising. but if you wanted to hear how prince's views changed over the years, including conspiracy theorising and so on, you could check out these:

SQUIRREL MEAT!! (Capitaine Jay Vee), Tuesday, 13 April 2021 18:10 (three weeks ago) link

NYT on the single. clearly hearing something im not.

Prince, ‘Welcome 2 America’
Prince recorded an album called “Welcome 2 America” in 2010, but shelved it before his death in 2016; his estate will release it in July. Maybe Prince decided the album was too bleak. Its title song is ominous, funky, seemingly improvisational and deeply cynical about an era of misinformation, exploitation and distraction. A pithy, stop-start bass line leaves space for dissonant little solos, while Prince’s vocals are deadpan spoken words: “Truth is a new minority.” He’s answered by women singing precise, jazzy harmonies and layering on more messages: “Land of the free, home of the brave,” they sing with a swinging lilt. “Oops, I mean, land of the free, home of the slave.” JON PARELES#

I get that a recent album might have more impact and help to look at prince beyond the 80s, but I doubt this one will show he was making brilliant, overlooked music in the 2010s. and now that hes gone, its ALL in the past, so why would you opt for what is likely to be just another okay ish modern prince album? Surely we had enough of those from 2004 to 2015?

Also his quality control, or awareness of what was good about his music seemed to go really askew in the later years, so you just know this will have maybe 2 to 3 rough gems and the rest borderline duds.

Asks what prince might have made if he was alive during last years BLM protests which makes me wonder if maybe he would have gotten better at the recent social commentaries in his songs as he was looking outward more. Or maybe songs like Baltimore or act of God are better than I remember.
