I'd say that this album is probably Prince's best album yet. You see the problem with this guy is that he uses so many different musical styles within one album, that sometimes they make for difficult listening. Well, gone are the days where we have to program our CD players to skip dodgy little segue's and so-called "experimental songs" - this album delivers classic after classic culminating after sixy-odd minutes in every lay-man's favourite, "Gold".
Slip this into your CD player, sit back and watch time fly as you are treated to a lesson in variety and mould-breaking genius. GO GET IT or indeed buy it for a skeptical friend, and even they'll begin to understand your passion for the purple one!
Standout tracks - all of them...and I'm being serious momma.

I have virtually all of Prince's albums but I consider this one to be the best. There are so many variations from pop to rock to funk and back and forth. Each time I listen to a Prince album now I just can't resist this one. Each song has different reasons, and they certainly draw you in as you listen to them more becoming completely hooked on them. In Dolphin he changes from slow place to fast instantly and it works perfectly. Not sure about the lyrics being recarnated as a Dolphin but the melody is wonderful. It would be wrong to single out any song because every song are great in their own right. To think that this album stood unreleased for a year due to his dispute with WB and Prince did not highly promote it as he was releasing albums just to fulfil his contractual commitments. Either way though this is a gem that should not be missed.

This is probably the best album by Prince in 90's, some songs like "Dolphin" are from that kind of tunes u won't forget in your whole life even when it's your first time listening to them. Can't tell u what it is but there's something inside the tracks of The Gold Experience Album. There's much love behind "The Most Beautiful Girl In The World", Funk gets wild in "P-Control", "Now" and "Billy Jack Bitch" (by the way listen to the final hornz on this one). Rock And Roll Is Alive and the proof is behind the screams in "Endorphinmachine" and "319" and finally the passion melts with the spiritual guitars on "Shhh" and "I Hate U" (this one is probably the most passioned musical breakdown in a couple) creating a very comfortable atmosphere with a very strange mixture between passionate love and wild funk. The funny thing is that after listening to "I Hate U", the last track but one in the album, u think that u've listened to everything but u're wrong, "Gold" is left and it's THE MOST INCREDIBLE PRINCE'S SONG IN THE LAST 10 YEARS, just think that Prince himself compared this song to Purple Rain, the only thing I can use to describe it is LOVE IN HIS HIGHEST EXPRESSION. Unfortunately WB is no longer printing this album, the reasons? don't know, but that's an unfaithful experience, maybe one of Prince's greatest creations in his whole career. If you have a chance to get this CD, don't hesitate, buy it even when you think it's too expensive, I promise that you won't regret it. Peace And Be Wild.

From the opening funk of Pussy Control to the screaming guitar of the final track Gold, the man has us under his spell. This is a fine album let there be no doubt! With instant classics like the stomping Endorphinemachine, the elegant The Most Beautiful Girl In The World (remixed version), the heartbreaking Dolphin and the acoustic guitar led Shy, The Artist reaffirms his genius. This album is probably his most accomplished since 1988's Lovesexy, and certainly on this form there is no denying the fact that this man still has a lot to offer. A worthy addition to your Prince collection!

Having loved Prince for a long time and only having this album on tape, it seems I searched for ages for the CD replacement with no joy. So happy to have found it and revisit this album of very fond memories from the 90s. All the more as this did not feature on Prince's back catalogue on Spotify and now he has removed all of his music from all streaming services...sad face.

It is thanks to 'gold' that i am as fanatical about prince (the artist) as i am. this was the first prince album i brought and i wasn't dissapointed! tracks like 'p control', 'the most beautiful girl in the world', 'dolphin' and 'gold' make this a must for anyone (mostly the true prince fans though)!

I used to play this in my car on the old cassette format many years ago and totally fell in love with it! Fast forward to 2012 and having recently rediscovered my love and respect for Prince (and not being able to find said tape) bought it on CD. Its an AMAZING album.. so sexy, so genius and I would have to say that out of all my Prince albums its probably my favourite so far. If you dont have it, BUY IT because you will NOT regret it for one moment!!

The year was 1995 and I was in my last year of uni, and as an avid prince “fan” I was waiting not very patiently for the next instalment of prince. I remember coming back from town and having already devoured the text on the bus, slamming the disc into the CD player. The gold experience I thought well could this be better than “Come”, “Sign of the Times” or even “Symbol”? The simple answer is no however this is a great album, the first track “P Control” is without a doubt the seminal party track, from the pulsing intro to the hook of the catchy chorus. However was this, the high point no by no means, it gets better from the rocking “Endorphin Machine” and “319”, the melodic vibe of “Shh” and “The Most Beautiful Girl in the World”. However the party tracks don’t stop with “We March”, "Now" and “Billy Jack Bitch”. The album consists of 18 tracks 12 of those being actual music the others Prince’s ubiquitous segues. This isn’t one of princes more experimental albums it’s got a more commercial sound to it. That said however what is clear is that the album is a reflection of his thoughts at the time of its creation, the mixture of sadness, happiness and anger conveyed in some of the tracks is apparent, The end track “Gold” is in the same vein at “Sign of the Times” I actually prefer it. As ever with prince some of the tracks are throw away and other will keep you coming back for just one more play. The album is an emotional journey with its ups and downs from the highs of “P Control” and “Now” and to the dips of “I Hate U” and “Gold”. Without a doubt this I one of my favourite prince albums and one even after 9 years, one that still sees regular play. Do I recommend it yes without a doubt it was a return to form in 1995.
