    Best thing he's done in years. Leave it to Prince to promote the wrong disc as the main album of the three included. Lotusflower isn't bad, but MPLSound has got some real gems on it and is the real winner here.

  1. 'Dance 4 Me' cribs the throwback electro beat of 'Erotic City,' while 'Here' should be served with a tall glass of wine to wash down all the cheese. 'Valentina,' the album's most unintentionally hilarious song, is a musical valentine to actress Salma Hayek.
  2. The drum machine hallmark of his 1980s heyday is a staple of MPLSound, a disc that hauls that sound into the present with mixed results.
  3. MPLSound might be the most pristine for what it ultimately lacks: the sense of real, lusty sin.
