Prince: The Gold Experience (1995)

prince goldBy Scott Goldfine

The name has changed, but the genius of the Artist Formerly Known as Prince has never been more evident than on his knockout new album, “The Gold Experience.” The Minneapolis legend continues to straddle several genres as the LP’s 12 songs are a third pop-rock, a third funk and a third R&B ballads.

Expect many hits from a sparkling set that should enamor even those alienated by his recent publicity faux pas.
