Product Description

PRINCE & THE NEW POWER GENERATION Diamonds And Pearls (1991 UK limited edition 13-track CD manufactured in Germany for the UK & European market includes the singles Gett Off and Diamonds & Pearls superb hologram picture sleeve bookletprinted with lyrics)

Amazon.co.uk

At its best, Prince's biggest seller of the 1990s is an archetype of seemingly casual inspiration, thanks mainly to the ease tracks such as "Cream", "Money Don't Matter 2 Night", and "Willing and Able" exude. Of course, he's working as hard as ever, whether in a mellow groove or an aggressively funky one ("Gett Off"). Compared with the masterpiece Sign o' the Times, Diamonds and Pearls is a minor creation, but it's one for the long haul. --Rickey Wright

This is probably Prince's most commercially accessible album since 'Purple Rain'. Though I could never give a Prince album 5 stars as there are usually 1 or 2 tracks I find myself skipping over, I could not tell anyone this is not a 5 star talent at work. An album like this outlasts its peers by being distinctive in its style and inventive in its output. Prince's experiments with rap and hip-hop don't always work, but when they do the effect is staggeringly good. Take 'Gett Off' - a grinding, thumping track with some of the most tongue-in-cheek lyrics I've ever heard. One of my favourites is 'Tonight you're a star.. and I'm a Big Dipper'. Pure genius. 'Cream' is another standout track with a striking guitar sound and a compulsively toe-tappable rhythm. 'Diamonds and Pearls' was probably the major hit - no matter how experimental he gets, he never loses an ear for a good tune - grandly helped along by by mighty voice of Rosie Gaines. 'Money Don't Matter 2Night' is a rather touching commentary on the state of the world, as is 'Live 4 Love'. Whether Prince is your 'thing' or not, you cannot deny he is a prodigious talent. As a body of work 'Diamonds and Pearls' stands up today and still satisfies the ear - as a part of Prince's rather voluminous back catalogue it is indispensable.

Although I have had this album on tape for several years, the purchase price prompted me to buy this on CD. Having said that, It is an extremely jaunty album from the Princemeister. And any real fan of his would/should already own this album. Where it falls short are the couple of rap tracks that ruin the R&B/Rock feel of the album. I am not an out and out Prince fan, but when he makes a good one, by heck it's good. For the £2.99 inc post I paid, and the speed with which it arrived- an absolute bargain I would say !

I have this album on tape, but soon enough I'm not gonna be able to resist buying it on CD! "Thunder" is a rollercoaster funkstravaganza, "Diamonds and Pearls" is an excellent NPG power ballad, "Cream" is smooth, "Strollin'" is too, "Walk Don't Walk" is a clever track about individuality, and "Money Don't Matter 2 Night" is a subtle pleasing mid-tempo number. Even the appalling "Daddy Pop" can't ruin this album, it's brilliant.

By Peter Uys HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 5 Dec. 2002
Format: Audio CD
Here the Prince-patented blend of rock, funk and soul is harnessed for a more funky sound which includes tender gospel ballads. Some rap is added by Toni M to tracks like Jughead, Daddy Pop and Push. The two most soulful cuts are Stollin' and Willing and Able, and they're both excellent. Thunder is Prince at his best, while Creamed and Get Off are hook-filled pure pop delight. Get Off, especially, is loaded with those suggestive innuendos. Lyrically and melodically, this ranks amongst Prince's Top Ten albums.

Prince came with a credibly commercial sound and consistently featured a rapper (Tony M) for first time here. He wanted to reclaim the chart position his stature deserved after relative years in the wilderness. "Batman" and Prince's fourth #1 "Batdance" were mainly successful on the back of the mainstream audience of the movie let us not forget.
The organ led pop-perfect "Cream" would give Prince his fifth US #1. Other hits included the dramatic multi-layered opener "Thunder", the funk-dance classic "Gett Off" and the supreme, Stevie Wonder style ballad "Money Don't Matter tonite" with it's social commentary format and a "Do Me Baby/Scandalous" type ballad in "Instatiable". "Jughead" and "Push" conversely gave Tony M. a chance to spotlight as frontman much to many fans chagrin.
My favourite song on this album however would have to be the title track with its pretty swaying melody and catchy hook.
Overall this album performed it's function and hooked me into becoming a Prince fan ten years ago so i can testify for it's catchiness personally! While perhaps not one of his deepest album concepts he sold albums while staying credible which was the aim. Can't argue with that right? :)

I love this album. I did have this on cassette tape many years ago. So very much better on CD.
