Prince: Planet Earth

Yeah, we all heard the story with this album and the magazine giveaway. But anybody knows what it is like? Of course, the Pitchfork even made a review. Here is what they say: - We always expect too much of Prince, because it's difficult to accept that somebody who made records as astonishing as he did in the 1980s could repeat himself as egregiously as he has for the past 15 years or so. He hasn't been doing r&b-by-numbers or rock-by-numbers, which is why he gets away with it; he's just been doing Prince-by-numbers. And yes, he still brings it live. But his albums used to send everyone scrambling to catch up; now they're self-evidently whatever he deigns to knock out. - read the full review at the Pitchfork
