    If America was a self-respecting nation, there'd be a street named after him in every city. Alas, if they're based on this record, we'll find ourselves striding Vague Call to Goodness Street.
  2. Sadly, this landfill isn't biodegradable.

    One of Prince's better 'new' albums, Planet Earth is probably worth more than a free hand out in the Daily Mail. Apart from its strange release idea it has some decent highlights. 'Guitar' is a good song if pushed a little too much as a single and 'Chelsea Rogers' is some damn good soul. There are some fillers as well, a grainy slow jazz number which name eludes me now. The title track is nice and epic but lacks a true Prince vibe. One thing we learn from the album is that Prince is at his best when he is doing his own thing. Full Review »
