2 new Prince albums out at the same time? Well, why not? This one is with his new band 3RDEYEGIRL, and although I think his caps lock mania is slightly uncalled for it's still Prince, and he can do whatever the hell he likes. Especially as long as the music is good. And this is Prince who wants to rock out with his electric guitar cocked and loaded! I doubt that any of the songs here will become new classics, but what do you really demand from a living legend like Prince? Songs like "WOW" and "BOYTROUBLE" put a huge grin on my face, and they sound as if Prince himself had a just as huge grin on his own face while playing them, and that's the way things should be. As for 3RDEYEGIRL, they are three women, one of whom (Donna Grantis) has been in Prince's band since 2012. Whoever the others are, they sound tight and their vocals fit the music perfectly, sort of in the same way that Wendy Melvoin and Lisa Coleman, and even Apollonia Kotero, did way back when. So what we have here is a really good Prince album with rock riffs, splendid vocal harmonies and a sense of fun being had by all involved. Sold!
