Summary
Prince returned to Warner Bros. Records in a big way in 2014 settling a fifteen-year feud on terms that were in his favor, decidedly. He acquired the rights to his masters, agreed to a series of deluxe reissues, and released two brand-new albums, one recorded on his own and one recorded with his backing power trio 3rdEyeGirl. Art Official Age, the album credited to his lonesome, finds Prince reveling in many of the sounds of the 1980s, reviving his Bob George and Camille voices, dabbling in deep electro-funk and indulging in full-fledged freakout. Despite all these winking allusions to his past, Art Official Age feels of piece not with the Revolution but rather the New Power Generation: underneath the squalls of guitar, psychedelic soul harmonies, and impish humor, this is a full-fledged album of rhythm and blues. Art Official Age is heavy on dance songs with rapped verses that do not feel informed by hip-hop and slow-burning soul that pulls the past into the present. Some of Prince's modernization feels a bit ham-fisted --- he turns the Internet meme "This could be us but you playing" into a slow jam --- but he leaves all his millennial flirtations at the margins of the record, grounding it in old-fashioned notions of seduction and soul. If the album does not offer any startling surprises, there is not much abandon here and there is joy in hearing Prince embrace his lyrical eccentricities as he accessorizes his smooth jams and coiled, clean funk with such oddities as laser blasts and spoken introductions from what appear to be British nurses. Such quirks may be fleeting but their presence is enough. -- Editorial Review provided by Stephen Thomas Erlewine for All Music Guide, taken and adapated from Barnes And Noble website
