    Just got Musicology last week. Great album if you're in to Prince. He plays most of the bass on there too. He makes a great funky bass player. I highly recommend this. As always, the arrangments, performances, tones, mixes and all are absolutley great. Check it out. He is one hell of a musician.

    It's a great album period. You don't even have to be 'into' prince to dig it.

    it's funky, soulful, and creative. and the fact that prince did like 90% of the album, just makes it all the better.

    BTW, there was already a thread about this in recordings ;)

    I'm seeing Prince on September 9th, where I'll get a free copy.

    You guys do realize that Prince has been making good albums for years, right? This is not a recent development, it just happens to be the one that is getting more press. Check out Rainbow Children and Gold. Both better albums than Musicology IMO.
  6. The live CD on Crystal Ball has to be one of the most bass-heavy albums of all time - on some of it he has no less than three bass parts rocking the funk out! Also on that triple CD (my freind has it not me) there's a beautiful mainly acoustic album called The Truth and that has some really great songs on - and Prince playing fretless - which as you would expect - is pretty impressive too.
