Graffiti Bridge

Graffiti Bridge

by Prince



Prince was shooting for the top of the charts with Graffiti Bridge, and he missed. The movie was a disaster, causing the soundtrack to sell very poorly. Despite its poor showing, Graffiti Bridge is not a bad album; in fact, it's often very good. Prince wrote all of the songs, but only performed a little over half the tracks, leaving the rest for The Time, Mavis Staples, and Tevin Campbell. With the exception of The Time's slamming "Release It" and Campbell's "Round and Round," the best songs are the ones Prince performed himself. The George Clinton collaboration "We Can Funk," the psycho-blues of "The Question of U," the sinewy single "Thieves in the Temple," and the pop
ock of "Can't Stop This Feeling I Got," "Tick, Tick, Bang," and "Elephants & Flowers" make Graffiti Bridge a thoroughly enjoyable listen.

Big disappointment. Prince was so talented, but this soundtrack doesn't demonstrate his talents. For example, there's a video of Prince performing the "Question of U," and it's terrific. However, this soundtrack only includes a few lines from that song and a short guitar solo. I couldn't believe it. One reason I bought the soundtrack was to get that particular song.

The movie was terrible, but the soundtrack is awesome! My favorite songs on here are "Round And Round", "Thieves In The Temple", "Melody Cool" and "Release It". Awesome songs!
