Prince - HITNRUN Phase Two download album

Hit n Run Phase Two is the thirty-ninth and final studio album by American recording artist Prince and the last to be released before his death on April 21, 2016. It was initially released exclusively on the Tidal streaming service on December 12, 2015 for streaming and purchase as a continuation of his previous album, Hit n Run Phase One. Prince confirmed on Twitter that a physical CD would be released during a weekend of Paisley Park shows in January 2016. The CD was given away to attendees of the shows on the Australian and New Zealand leg of the Piano & A Microphone Tour. Both discs are off-center on my copy. Doesn't really matter as the album is pretty shyte to begin with.

But HITNRUN Phase Two is all too aware of itself. On Prince’s fourth album in the last two years, his once limitless capacity for musical ideas appears here as flight from some invisible enemy, the midlife crisis that prompts someone to wheeze, Actually, I’ve never felt better when they look like shit. Don’t you wanna take a bath with me? he sings on XTRALOVEABLE, against a backdrop of dystopic synths and packaged horns.

Hitnrun Phase Two (stylized as HITnRUN Phase Two) is the 39th full-length studio album by Prince, and the final Prince-related album to be released during his lifetime. It was released digitally in December 2015, just three months after his previous album Hitnrun Phase One, and four months before his death. The album contains twelve tracks, six of which were previously unreleased in any shape or form.

Following quickly on the heels of its companion, HITnRUN: Phase Two is more a complement to than a continuation of its predecessor.

Prince – HITnRUN phase two. (NPG) UK release date: 12 December 2015. by John Murphy first published: 21 Dec 2015 in Albums. To paraphrase Miley Cyrus, he can’t stop and he won’t stop. Like its companion album, there’s a fair few nods to Prince’s musical history. Rock N Roll Love Affair swipes the central keyboard riff to Take Me With U, and you can probably guess what song he samples after the line can I get a kiss on Stare. The many blasts of horn and brass arrangements recall the Purple One’s golden age of Parade and Sign O’The Times (albeit with less strong songs) – indeed, Big City sounds at times like a direct throwback to that very era.

And this is why HITNRUN Phase Two is an underwhelming entry in the artist formerly known as the Artist Formerly Known as Prince's canon. Relative to the idiosycratic and all-over-the place first iteration of the HITNRUN series, Phase Two is an organic-textured, polished, and predictable release. Rather than an artist's interpretation, we get a craftman's tracing. Welton co-produced the bulk of the first HITNRUN album, accenting it with EDM flourishes in a way that felt mildly adventurous. Without them, the record feels bland. But ultimately it's a lack of ideas that sinks this record, a point which hits home every time these songs overtly or subliminally recall one song or another in pop music history.
