While not as good as during his Purple Rain years, Prince enjoys a moderate comeback with his latest album, Musicology. Fans of the pop and funk icon should embrace this album, and perhaps it will help take away the bitter taste left by his hard-rock jaunt in Chaos and Disorder and religious experiment in The Rainbow Children. The album's title song takes you back to the old school for 'true funk soldiers'. Whether you're a funk soldier or not, it's still a compelling song with a catchy guitar riff. In Life of the Party, Prince takes a shot at another '80s icon, Michael Jackson: 'My voice is gettin' higher/And ain't never had my nose done!' Call My Name, another strong track, is about his wife, Manuela Testolini, who he married in 2001. But while this is Prince's best album since 1987's Sign 'O' the Times, it certainly doesn't mean that this is a return to his old form. This is a solid, though not spectacular, CD. I enjoyed it, but it doesn't keep me coming back for more.
