Smoke Notes

A fantastic return to form from Minneapolis' finest. It's had Prince acolytes worldwide jumping up and down and whooping with delight, and most of everyone else agreeing that it's his best work since 1991's 'Diamonds & Pearls'. Not that that's actually saying much as the last 13 years have been marked by lacklustre efforts that suffered both critical and commercial raspberries all round, religious conversion, personal tragedy and legal issues. People do want Prince to be good again, so 'Musicology' is almost a relief in some ways. The opening title track is brilliant, funky and choppy in a Neptunes' manner that shows he hasn't been living in a complete vacuum for the last few years at least. "Cinnamon Girl" and "A Million Days" are both classic Prince, tightly wound funk in a lush production wrapper. The latter being described by The Guardian as the best song he's written in ten years, while Rolling Stone described 'Musicology' as "appealing, focused and straight-up satisfying an album as Prince has made since who can remember when. It's open, easygoing and inclusive, the sort of album anyone might like". Indeed, Rolling Stone's assertion that he's rediscovered the fact that less is more is spot on. The spacious production harks back to classic moments like 'Sign O' The Times' or 'Kiss', but with clever nods to 21st century R'n'B and hip-hop. Clever without being overtly self- indulgent, 'Musicology' is without doubt the outstanding album release of 2004 thus far and an essential purchase for all lovers of music. Recommended.
