Album Review

Following quickly on the heels of its companion, HITnRUN: Phase Two is more a complement to than a continuation of its predecessor. Prince ditches any of the lingering modern conveniences of HITnRUN: Phase One — there's nary a suggestion of electronics and it's also surprisingly bereft of guitar pyrotechnics — in favor of a streamlined, even subdued, soul album. Despite its stylistic coherence, Prince throws a few curve balls, tossing in a sly wink to "Kiss" on "Stare" and opening the album with "Baltimore," a Black Lives Matter protest anthem where his outrage is palpable even beneath the slow groove. That said, even the hardest-rocking tracks here — that would be the glammy "Screwdriver," a track that would've been an outright guitar workout if cut with 3rdEyeGirl — is more about the rhythm than the riff. Compared to the relative restlessness of HITnRUN: Phase One, not to mention the similarly rangy Art Official Age, this single-mindedness is initially overwhelming but like any good groove record, HITnRUN: Phase Two winds up working best over the long haul, providing elegant, supple mood music whose casualness plays in its favor. Prince isn't showing off, he's settling in, and there are considerable charms in hearing a master not trying so hard.

Customer Reviews

4ever disappointed these days...

Another "album" of rehashed, forgettable tracks. I've loved Prince for years and years, but it's just been so long since he put out anything that was fresh and high quality from start to finish. The fact that this collection is considered an improvement over Phase One just goes to show you how pitiful that effort was. I used to think that he could jump back to the top of the charts at will but he just didn't want to. After so many sub-par efforts over the years, though, I now think that it's not a matter of will he but can he? I'm convinced there's no better musician and live performer alive today with a total body of work that's unparalleled. I just hate having to keep going back to the old stuff to remember how great he was.

Great

Phase Two is a great album it's very mellow and laid back cold driving or cleaning music also some classic Prince sounds as well .

PURE PRINCE

This may just be the PERFECT Prince album.
Not only does it have a BEAUTIFULLY warm sound, but it's also the most mature and loose record he's put out to date.

I'm in awe - Bravo Prince, and thank you.
