Prince - Musicology (2004)

Prince Rogers Nelson - June 7, 1958 – April 21, 2016

Another truly unique legend gone... seriously, Death, WTF?

Wanted to post this album as it's stuck with me as a personal favourite from Prince's latter-day work (using Emancipation as a rough dividing line).  There's the usual amount of deeply personal, sometimes obtuse soul-searching, but above all just so much joy and a fresh reveling in the all-encompassing mastery of his art.

Wish I had a dollar for every time you say - Don't you miss the feeling music gave you back in the day?

  1. Just wanted to say, I think =Musicology= is one of my favorite Prince albums, period, and I don't understand why it's not better respected, except that it's probably just in his late period -- i.e., people dismissed it without giving it a fair shot (or people just didn't listen to it). Or maybe I'm overrating it.... Still, it makes me happy.
