2016 repress. Originally released in 2009. On MPLSound, Prince took his retro mission to offer up such tight, funky electro grooves as "(There'll Never B) Another Like Me" and "Ol' Skool Company." Part of what was originally released as a triple album was also released as a double LP with Lotusflow3r. "Prince played every instrument on MPLSound just like the old days, only now he gets obsessive with Pro Tools. He isn't as bawdy as he once was (becoming a Jehovah's Witness will do that), but he's still got a lot of humor and swagger. On the funky '(There'll Never B) Another Like Me,' he sings about his beauty routine (it involves olive oil in his hair), and on the seven-and-a-half-minute 'Ol' Skool Company,' he covers issues from the TARP bailout to the state of radio ('If the White House is black/We gotta take the radio back')." - Gavin Edwards (Rolling Stone, 2009)
