CLOUDS

May as well start a thread for the new song, I like the song alot, but i dont think it will be a major hit unless warners uses some serious promotion for it. I like the music behind the song more than the lyrics. I think it sounds like breakfast can wait. I would give it a 7 out of 10

YES: 9.5/10, "Clouds" is fantastic, but not as good as Kiss or When Doves Cry.... wink

Must be good if thedance likes it wink
I'm also digging it, sounds bit sci-fi like someone said on the other thread.

Doesn't sound cheesy or like he's trying too hard like on some of his other recent RNB tracks (Incense & Candles etc)

I like it, the bass, beat, tempo and piano line reminds me of Honey/Hey DJ.

Love the Lianne LaHavas spoken bit, "Mr Nelson? Mr Nelson..?" That was out of left field and made me smile.

Ends on a nice Princely guitar solo, ticks all my boxes.

cool

I'm loving Clouds! I'm guessing that lianne la Havas is on co-vox, I'm giving it 8.5/10 biggrin

I like it, it's not really my thing stylistically, but who can deny that the guy is a true master of his trade?

I've been fairly unsatisfied with Prince's studio releases in the past few years. This song, along with The Breakdown, give me hope that this Prince album might be good. I really like both these songs.

The intro is just so damn funky. Loving the song. Thank you for not releasing something formulaic.

You should never underestimate the power of a kiss on the neck when she doesn't expect a kiss on the neck, when she doesn't expect a kiss on the neck
Every time you catch her singing in the shower you should go and get a flower no matter what the hour and just rub it on her back, rub it on her back, rub it on her back

In this brand-new age we do everything quick, fast in a hurry
All of our life's a stage
Everybody stars, reality so blurry
If you screamed out loud (loud) on top of your voice would it be higher than the crowd? No.
Tattooless and proud (yeah)
We're getting high on something that doesn't require clouds, no
We don't need no clouds, no.

I want to give you something baby but I wonder does it really even matter if it ain't on a stage? If it ain't on stage I don't think it really matters in this brand-new age.

When life's a stage in this brand-new age how do we engage?

Mr. Nelson, Mr. Nelson, can you hear my voice? Sir, we know you're a little bit groggy and you're probably going to find it hard to speak but don't try to talk or process too much now. We just wanted to let you know that the medication you were given has put you in suspended animation for quite some time. Well, in fact, about 45 years, but where you are now is a place that does not require time. That being said, you are completely safe.. we're here to help you.

AM I HEARING A LINN DRUM MACHINE

I AM HEARING A LINN DRUM MACHINE

THIS IT IT

THIS IS WHAT WE'VE ALL BEEN WAITING FOR

No but seriously, I really like it. The only thing I could pick out that I dont like is the auto tune thing he's using on his voice. It takes away the shine from his beautiful singing voice.

✿Prince and lawsuits. Still a better love-story than Twilight. ✿

Nik West said a while back that (after the initial listening party, I think) that it had both linn and live drums and not a lot from the NPG Hornz.

I very much like it. Has a Lovesexy vibe to it. Sounds fresh to me. I only wish it had one or two more verses as the 'story' doesn't really go anywhere. But the groove is the type that only he can create - perfectly spaced and layered. Funky as. Love the English lass in the breakdown sections.

sounds like lianne la havas..i agree..only he can create these grooves...i think it has quality...a cut above what we have heard from him in recent years...should sound good on r&b radio.

It's OK, well produced and all, but it could be from any other r'n'b act out there. It sounds a little generic and has no great melody. But it's nice. I was more excited about The Breakdown and can't see myself listening to Clouds that often.
