Prince 

3121


Prince
3121
(NPG)
Prince is back, not only in name but sheer musical force. Musicology wasn’t the comeback everyone hoped for—3121 is. Musicology seemed to be made specifically as a commercial comeback; 3121 lacks the feel of classic Prince for the sake of classic Prince. The record has a great cohesive structure that works Prince’s various musical moods back and forth, recapturing not only the classic vibe but also a fresh sound Prince has lacked since his fallout with Warner Brothers. Unlike the ’80s albums, he does not create anything new, but it does show that he’s still a vital, interesting artist. 3121 is one of, if not the, best Prince record since his creative peak in the mid-’80s.
