EDITORS’ NOTES

Prince always leapt between moods and styles without fear. The consummate rule-breaker continued to push himself with 1993’s dense and delirious Love Symbol Album. Backed by the horn-driven sound of The New Power Generation, he filled this heady concept album with brassy bursts of big-band jazz, hard-driving funk workouts, and nods to the fierce swing of early ‘90s hip-hop. It’s a dizzying trip, whether you’re looking to get lost in a psychedelic dance-rock epic (“7”) or get loose to down-and-dirty R&B (“Sexy M.F.”).

This, in my opinion, is one of the greatest concept albums ever recorded. Now, if you are just a casual Prince dance that listens to hits such as "Kiss" and "Diamonds and Pearls" then this album might confuse you. I have been looking for this album for about 12 years. I had the cassette tape when I was a child and it was damaged during relocation. Amazon didn't have it, eBay didn't have it, no record stores had...I was just bummed. To find it here on iTunes is a wonderful surprise! When I listen to this album I see a story being told from start to finish. A movie almost. Prince really takes the listener on an epic journey and if you have the patience to listen all the way through I am sure that your casualness will turn into diehard fanatic. Again, this album isn't just some poppy collection of radio hits, this is a masterpiece. A work of art through song and imagery.

How astonishing is this album?!?

Pure genius. Love it. Love him

About Prince & The New Power Generation

"Welcome to the New Power Generation," announced Prince in "Eye No," the opening song on his 1988 album Lovesexy. Two years later, the Graffiti Bridge soundtrack contained "New Power Generation" with a group of the same name credited as background vocalists. The New Power Generation was featured on Prince's Diamonds and Pearls (1991) and The Love Symbol Album (1992), then went on to release albums credited to the group on its own, such as Goldnigga (a platform for rapping associate Tony M, 1993), Exodus (1995), and New Power Soul (1998), all of which were issued on Prince's NPG label. Despite a couple live albums, contributions to as many NPG label compilations, and a credit on 3121, New Power Generation will always be associated primarily with Prince's early-'90s output. ~ Andy Kellman
