The Gold Experience 21st Anniversary

Posted by Shaliah on September 26, 2016 at 6:00 PM Comments comments (0)
The Purple Rain album of the 90s has turned legal! I'm talking about the album "The Gold Experience". This album, in my opinion, is one of the best records that Prince ever made. This album highlights the diversity of his music which includes funk, rock, r&b, rap, and soul. Various critics applauded this album as well. Some calling it Prince's best record in years. Others stated that the music was outrageously and originally as anything he's ever recorded. Others said it was his best record sinc... Read Full Post »

Today is the 27th anniversary of the Greatest Female Performer's Rhythm Nation 1814 album. Rhythm Nation 1814 was a concept album that addressed social issues such as racism, drug abuse, tragedies, and poverty. It was ranked #277 in Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time in 2012. In my opinion, this album is ranked with the other top concept message albums: Marvin Gaye's What's Going On, Stevie Wonder's Innervisions, and Prince's Sign O' the Times. Below I have ranked her songs from the... Read Full Post »

Anyone who knows me knows how much I love Janet Jackson. She is on my list of top five favorite artists of all time along with Stevie Wonder, Prince, Aaliyah, and Diana Ross. She just released her new single "No Sleeep" and is excellent.  It sounds like a mix of of Anytime, Anyplace, That's The Way Love Goes, and I Get Lonely. It almost sounds like an outtake from "The Velvet Rope" album which is among one of my favorites of...
