Happy 25 Anniversary to Princes seventeenth studio album Gold Experience, originally released on September 26 1995. When an artist is as prolific as Prince was, it's easy to have an album or two that gets lost in shuffle. For me, this album is Gold Experience, released in 1995 at the height of Princes ' battle with and separation from Warner Brother Records over rights to his master recordings and what he saw as an unfairly binding contract. Having killed off his Princely identity with the 1994 Come release, Gold Experience was the first album released under his O + > moniker. Most of the songs that would wind up on the album were recorded during the same sessions as Come. The long gestational period between recording and release saw the album wind its way through a multitude of configurations before landing on the set of songs that would make up the final track listing. And as I place the needle on Gold Experience once more, I m reminded that there are gems aplenty hidden within its grooves. This was an artist reasserting himself as a pop / funk force to be reckon with, hoping to reclaim critical and commercial success that had wan little over his past few releases. If this was rebirth, launch of O + > had Artist well and truly reinvigorate. And for those wondering if new identity would mean abandonment of all things Prince, there was enough Purple carryover to keep them entertain. From opener P Control with its grinding beats and salacious salute to sisters in sexual assuredness to the raucous Endorphinmachine, which purrs with its mix of funk and rock, Gold Experience is packed with edgier, dare we say, dirtier, side of Artist. Songs like 319 and Billy Jack Bitch revisit elements of Dirty Mind and 1999, but present them in a new and interesting light. Billy Jack Bitch, in particular, is the kind of synth lead funk jam that he built his career on, and proves to any doubters that he still had it, and 319 has enough X - rat commentary to make Darling Nikki blush. Preannounced as party jam dance track of album, now packs a funky vibe into a head - bobbing groove. Reflecting more of sample lead music of the era, song is filled with little hooks rather than melody, guitar line, horns, break down all mixed in this musical brew and boil to perfection. When it all comes together, it works so well. But there are also a few mistakes. For all its well - intentioned social motivation, We March fails to be political mover its envision as and comes off as a lite version of his more focused social commentary. Similarly, Dolphin, with its refashion Britpop sound and cross panning guitar, is immediately catchy, but falls just short of taking the US somewhere new. Whilst certainly not filler, it wasnt hoped to be killer either.

Disc 1: Album by so - called artist, remastered. Unlike the released version, some tracking errors are correct 1. Most Beautiful Girl in World - 4: 02 3. Most Beautiful Girl in World - 4: 55 5. Most Beautiful Girl in World - 5: 15 6. Most Beautiful Girl in World - 6: 18 7. Most Beautiful Girl in World - 3: 35 8. Most Beautiful Girl in World - 3: 54 9. Most Beautiful Girl in World - 3: 19 10. I Hate You / Eye Hate U - 4: 26 11. Eye Hate U - 6: 00 13. Eye Hate U - 3: 48 16. Rock and Roll Is Alive - 4: 34 1. Most Beautiful Girl in World - 4: 36 9. Gold - 6: 40 11. Chaos and Disorder - 4: 12 13. Gold - 7: 35 would include Listen 2 Rhythm, Strength, Angie, Jam, Shy, We March and all TGE songs not released through any source. And 2 discs of two different Ultimate Live Experience shows. It will be interesting to see how the estate and all handles things like this, meaning later works. It's pretty safe to say that they are so far at least sticking to very early stuff for their remastering and bonus etc. Though there was RAVE issue, nothing was really done to that. It was just all packaged in one set, all that stuff had technically been release. The big question is will they even do albums like this, or will they mainly focus on say, Sign of Times, Parade, maybe even Dirty Mind and Controversy and then possible Diamonds and Pearls since it was a huge record for him. Though Gold Experience was Gold record that era with things like COME and Chaos, it is going to be really tricky and who knows if they will attempt to do anything or just reissue these things on CD and vinyl with new packaging. I would like to see it issued the way he originally wanted it & was happy with it, but warners helped it back eg exactly as released but including day's of Wild studio Version and welcome to Wild Experience intro with original concept package with mettalic Gold foil cover as see on letterman & sunday show! Obviously, I would like to hear all unreleased tracks from that era too, either on second disc or as part of unreleased tracks set like Crystal Ball II and leave Super Deluxe's real big sellers Parade, Sign o time & Diamonds & Pearls. I wouldn't want to be one in charge of handling Come or Gold Experience Super Deluxe. I know the concept of Super Deluxe Album is to be as thorough as possible, but this era contains too many remixes, works in progress and cross pollination with each other. Even if legal issues around Beautiful do get resolved, this is still going to be a minefield.

Template: Album ratings Gold Experience sold 500 000 copies in the United States and peaked at number six on Billboard 200, failing to meet the record label's commercial expectations. According to biographer Jason Draper, it may have been undersold because Prince was losing touch with younger listeners and also because his contractual dispute with Warner Bros. Records overshadowed the album's promotion, which he had done well before it was release. Nonetheless, Gold Experience was success with critics. Melody Maker called it Prince's best record in years, while Vibe said it was his best since Sign o Times in 1987. In Village Voice, Robert Christgau wrote that it showcased not only unbridled artistry display on his other records but also renewal. It's as sex - obsess as ever, only with more juice'shhh and 319 especially pack kind of porno jolt sexy music rarely gets near and hard music never does. He believes its best songs, specifically endorphinmachine and p Control, funk and rock as outrageously and originally as anything he's ever record. Jon Pareles was less enthusiastic in New York Times, finding most of the songs to be minor successes and calling it a proficient album, not a startling one; most of its songs are variations and retreads of previous Prince efforts. Gold Experience was voted the best Album of 1995 in Pazz & Jop, annual poll of American critics published by Village Voice. Christgau, poll's supervisor, ranked it 10 best in his own year - end list. In retrospective review, Keith Harris from Blender cites Gold Experience as the best album Prince recorded in the 1990s, mix of newly strip - down funk and delicate balladry that reassert his dynamic range. Several people speculate that the song Billy Jack Bitch was written about a Minneapolis Star Tribune gossip columnist known as CJ. Prince denied the song was about columnist when CJ herself interviewed him.

Some call it his best album of the 90s, and others claim the production ruins the appeal of original compositions on this album. Wherever you stand on matter, level of care and respect Prince had in crafting and promoting Gold Experience trumps everything else he worked on for Warner Bros. In this time span. Come and Black Album was not well - received critically, did not perform well commercially, and after 16 years of being a professional musician,ss it appeared as if Princes ' run of relevancy had end. The Black Album was off the charts on February 25 1995, and with every track on this album having been Record and redone by August 1994, it would appear as if I had nothing to discuss prior to my dissertation of Album, but it was at this moment when things truly became interesting in Princes battle with label. The 1995 BRIT Awards were held on February 20 1995, at Alexandra Palace in London, England, where the Prince infamously revealed the word slave written on his cheek in Black marker. He spoke cryptically about live performances being free but his records being where he was constrain, all while acting as if he was in disbelief about winning International Male Artist of Year. Prior to that, it was just business as usual for Purple One, as his performance on August 8 1994 was the last performance he had before Come was release, which I covered in my review of that Album 1, but he didnt perform again until November 11, and then followed that up with performance on 13, both at Paisley Park Studios to crowds of less than 2 000 people. The Black Album was released in the US on November 22 1994, and I suspect the label insisted he perform overseas to promote the album since the standard vinyl release was exclusive to Europe; US instead received limited edition vinyl that was different colors from the standard Black sleeve. His performance on November 24 was for the 1994 MTV European Music Awards, and he followed it up with a midnight performance that same night at Tranenpalast, small nightclub in Berlin, Germany;, same city where the MTV European Awards were being host. He returned to the States shortly after and gave two more performances before Yearend, as 12 saw him host a benefit show at Roseland Ballroom in New York City, New York, which was followed by his legendary performance on Letterman the following morning; broadcast later that night. Rumor has it Prince changed the ending of the performance to an ending where he was shot and carried off - stage by his band to avoid shaking hands and speaking with Letterman 3, as the two apparently do not like each other, but that for tabloids. I am more interested in the final configuration of Gold Experience that was submitted to Warner Bros. On October 13 1994.

A Short - range power - type Stand, Gold Experience possesses the ability to create Life from inanimate material. Although Gold Experience doesn't pack a lot of damage with its punches, its life giving abilities can still deal lot of damage in the right situations. This stand also has a shiny counterpart of itself: crack Gold Experience. This stand is part of the Arrow Stand Pool, in which it has 1. 4% chance of obtaining from Stand Arrow. As for its shiny, there is 0. 14% chance of obtaining it. You can also use Requiem Arrow to unlock the Requiem ability of this Stand.

Cracked Gold Experience can also be alternatively obtained by using Shiny Arrow. Gold Experience is humanoid stand of slender build and average height. The top of its head has a similar shape to that of a typical solder's helmet. It is also seen having large ladybugs shaped objects all over Gold's body. The designs of these ladybugs are based on the Scarab Beetle, a symbol of Creation in ancient Egypt, symbolizing regeneration, These ladybugs symbolize abilities of Gold Experience. Befitting Stand's name, it is portrayed in most media featuring it in shade of yellow, but changing colors for some of its details, most notably its ladybugs ornaments and eyes. Crack Gold Experience, is Gold Experience's Shiny variant, both share similar appearances in terms of its color scheme and physical build. The exception to this, however, comes down to its name, as Cracked Gold Experience has the extra feature of having several cracks on its face, torso, arm, legs, and chest. On face, eyes could be show. Gold Experience creates tree beneath the user, elevating them to deflect some damage other players try to deal to them. It doesn't seem to work on Gold Experience Requiem and also Over Heaven Stands. Gold Experience strikes forward, knocking out their soul, making them vulnerable to attack. This attack only works at 46HP and lower. Gold Experience strikes target. Anyone hit will be pulled into range of the user and will be beat down with MUDA Barrage Of 135 punches for 7 seconds, then knocked away using Prohibiting Blow. Unfortunately, if your opponent blocks attack, 7 Page MUDA will do much less damage. It's good idea to lower your opponent's health before attacking due to block - ability and long cooldown. Gold Experience is a close - range Stand that excels in outstanding high damage along with high healing. As long as the user has a little bit of patience and strategy, Gold Experience can be a deadly versatile opponent and excels as few others do.
