Few artists have created a body of work as rich and varied as Prince. During the '80s, he emerged as one of the most singular talents of the rock & roll era, capable of seamlessly tying together pop, funk, folk, and rock. Not only did he release a series of groundbreaking albums; he toured frequently, produced albums and wrote songs for many other artists, and recorded hundreds of ...

3CD set - Lotusflow3r / MPLSound / Elixir.

Let's get the bad out of the way first so we can concentrate on the good:

MPLSound - Flacid collection of tepid synth-funk and saccharin ballads. This CD follows the path of Emancipation, Rave, Musicology and 3121 - if you like Prince pushing the auto-pilot button and farting out a dozen tracks he's done a million times before, this is for you, enjoy.

Elixir - Prince written and produced album by then protege Bria Valente, yet another Vanity look-a-like. This laid back collection of Sade-inspired soul is rarely pleasing, often forgettable, but not too much of either to get too excited about either in your hate or love for it. It is what it is, Prince has a new squeeze, his thing is he's going to "make them a star", then the next year they're banished from the royal court to be deposed by that year's muse - at the time of writing that is Andy Allo, successor to Bria, who herself was successor to Tamar - who's slightly superior unreleased album was the source for one of the tracks on Elixir.

Right, that's that... now the good news:

Lotusflow3r - Simply the most cohesive, complete and engaging Prince album since 2001's The Rainbow Children.
The set shows Prince's usual flare for eclecticism, with wacky twists and turns in amongst the usual display of rock, funk and balladry. Prince really pulls it all together here though.

Boom is a pleasing dreamy guitar-led pop piece that never outstays it's welcome as it leads straight into the cover of Crimson and Clover, a Purple Rain-esque take on a classic song that Prince really makes his own, a great version.

5.0 out of 5 stars Patience brings reward 8 Jun 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
As with a lot of recent Prince releases a certain degree of patience is needed to fully appreciate the content. All the Prince nuts like me love anything he does and his live shows are still the best you will ever see. I do understand that none fans will think it a bit self indulgent but stick with it to understand the musicianship beneath.

Out of the three, the album Lotus Flower is brilliant:Crimson and Flower, Colonized Mind and 77 Beverley Park (an instrumental...) all have five stars on my playlist. Colonized Mind is an overall favourite, even if that's one where Prince 'tells us something' which can be a tad eyebrow rising on occasion. However, the other Prince album is a waste of space and the third is for one of his cute protegee and is as bland as it gets. Just imagine you are getting a single cd and you will be happy.

5.0 out of 5 stars MPL Sound Great Album 26 Nov 2010
Format:Audio CD
MPL SoundI just had to write in answer to the negative comments on this album.As this has to be one of my favourite Prince CDs of recent years.The first three tracks are fabulous!Great for dancing and funny lyrically.The rest of the album is almost as good especially Valentina and No More Candy 4 U.Listening to Prince as I sit and write this He really knows how to make fantastic music of all kinds and moods.Have albums in double figures all are different and each wonderful.Hardly listen to anything else as no-one else matches his humour and genius.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth the money 5 May 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a 3 CD set and for the price it is a gem. Disc 2 on its own is worth the money with some bonus tracks on the other CDs. The guitars are great with some pick out tunes such as $ and Colonised Mind. Don't hesitate purchase this.
