Prince & 3RDEYEGIRL – Plectrumelectrum
Prince was an American singer, songwriter, musician, record producer, dancer, actor, and filmmaker. A guitar virtuoso and multi-instrumentalist known for his eclectic genre-crossing work, flamboyant and androgynous persona, energetic live shows and wide-ranging singing voice. Prince is regarded as one of the greatest, versatile and most successful musicians in the history of popular music. His innovative music integrated a wide variety of styles, including funk, R&B, rock, new wave, soul, psychedelia, and pop. Prince also pioneered the late 1970s Minneapolis sound, a funk rock subgenre drawing from synth-pop and new wave. Plectrumelectrum is his thirty-sixth studio album, the first and only to feature his backing band 3rdeyegirl. According to Randall Roberts of the Los Angeles Times, Plectrumelectrum is a rock album with lyrics and sound effects characteristic of Prince’s “noble weirdness” and “sense of humor”, while Rolling Stone reviewer Jon Dolan described the record as “a set of exploratory funk-rock jams”.
