The Beautiful Ones – review (spoiler alert)

The Beautiful Ones, the completed pages of Prince’s memoir, is such an vital and unique release. Of all the releases which followed in the three-and-a-half years since his death, this is the only one Prince himself would have released.

Expecting the Unexpected

What may behold us for news in the wake of Prince’s disappearance from social media?

Courtin’ Time

You might be forgiven for thinking a newcomer to social media could within one year score an absolute coup, not only above the biggest TV event of the year, but for causing quite a stir for a tour that’s had not a penny of advertising spent on it.

Groovy Potential

Although a latecomer to the party, Prince has really gotten into social media of late, with @3rdeyegirl. Tantalising fans with all manner of exciting prospects of new songs, live streams from Paisley Park

A Colonized Mind

Being his 30th year in the business, for Prince 2008 was a rather mooted affair, spending it cooking up another project, a so far unnamed release for 2009 from which 4 tracks have be aired on radio in what promises to be his most critically acclaimed outing since Sign O’ the Times. Maybe.

Futuristic Fantasy

The press love to take the piss out of him but cant live without him. Warner wanted shot of him and now must be begging for his return for Prince has hit the jackpot in Vegas.

Winning formula

Taking a listen to Te Amo Corazon did little to dispel fandom’s pre-album jitters for the release of 3121, but lets face it, we’re buoyed up because of Black Sweat and Fury and the simple fact that its another Prince album which gives any fan to get worked up about anyway.

It seems like a million days

He has only been gone a year, but that really did seem like a million days. Now the drought has eventually meandered to its lingering end.
