Prince, Musicology (* * * out of four) After years of scattershot releases, moniker confusion, industry battles and a retreat into his self-contained Internet kingdom, Prince can again be formally known as relevant. Musicology is a potent reminder of his undiminished skills as a soul crooner, rock guitarist and pop songsmith. Rehabilitating the vintage-vibed funk/rock of his heyday, Prince is focused and ferocious in a dozen concisely drawn tunes that summon his feverish impulses but never lapse into shapeless jams. Newfound religious faith has curtailed his randy nature, yet a sensual humidity permeates every space, from the blistering funk in Life 'o' the Party to the warmth of ballad Reflection to the snaking blues of On the Couch. In the title track's heady swirl of old-school rhythms, Prince pays homage to yesteryear's brotherhood of R&B greats while re-establishing his role as the fraternity's president. Edna Gundersen

From USA TODAY -

I didn't make it to his concert this past weekend, I visited my daughter instead, but you better believe that I'll be there tomorrow when this new CD goes on sale..

I've liked Prince since I was little and listen to some of his older songs. Purple Rain is one of my fav. Im gonna try to get the new one, the way I keep hearing how great it's gonna be.

I always thought Prince's music was pop not r&b.

No offence but I always thought Prince was a queen.

I think it's a sin you put so much time and money into your Prince collection when there are many other artists you should give a chance to appreciate. Like the ones your girlfriend listens to.

artists.... Puddle of Mudd, Godsmack Eminem, they are not artists... I'm surprised that they even get their music played....


I don't like thier music and I'm just kidding with my statement above.. that's what she likes and she can have it...
