Yesterday I enthused about Prince's other new album, "PLECTRUMELECTRUM", released with his new band 3RDEYEGIRL. And where that record starts out (and keeps on) rockin', this album begins like a Danish eurodance party - which is not what anybody really needs. It's obviously a good thing that the two different releases don't sound too similar, and for the rest of the album this is Prince showing his funky and soulful side. Not a bad side at all, but this is a road that was paved by Prince himself, and not even he gets a free ride down that highway. He is Prince, and of course he delivers, but he has done this before and a lot better.
