I was given my first cd to review for this blog and to be honest, I wasn’t too positive about it. Prince isn’t always for me, although I can sometimes see the attraction...
This is what Wikipedia has to say:
'Exodus is more of a pure funk offering, strongly influenced by the sound of Parliament and P-Funk. Although the tracklist boasts 21 tracks, many of them are narrative segues,
leaving only nine actual songs. Of those, one is an instrumental. The
album spawned three singles, hoever only one was released in the U.S.
This album still downplays Prince's involvement in the band, with "Tora Tora", another in the long line of Prince's persona's, as a background vocalist whose face is covered with a red veil (evidenced in the video of "The Good Life"). The front man for the NPG on this release is bass player Sonny T. who handles the lead vocals. Prince does provide lead vocals on 2 tracks, "Return of the Bump Squad" and "The Exodus Has Begun" using manipulated vocals and is clearly present on many of the spoken segues, although sometimes using a disguised accent'.
