LISTEN: PRINCE "ART OFFICIAL AGE"

Who knew that getting back onto the same major label he so desperately wanted off of years ago would help Prince to get some of his creative mojo back again? After a string of independently released albums that were mediocre at best, he has returned to Warner Bros Records with the sort of record we had been waiting for him to make. The smart blend of classic R&B sounds with some of the modern electronic experimentation he had become known for in the 80's is a refreshing return to form for the artist. It may not rank amongst his all-time best releases, but it is certainly the best of his 21'st century output.
