Prince: Come (1994)

prince comeBy Scott Goldfine

The Artist Formerly Known as Prince has released his last album as his old namesake and his first studio LP in two years ― an eternity for the prolific funk-rocker. This 10-track outing is briefer than his past few discs, but it contains virtually no filler.

Funk and R&B flavorings and provocative lyrics (surprise) dominate the set, which is as vital as any the artist has ever recorded.
