Prince As Pre-Prince

3121 by Prince reminds me of pre-Prince. You know, the type of records he made before Purple Rain (i.e. Prince and Soft and Wet, but not Dirty Mind). This time the ballads are the weak spots, while the jams are still primal funk. "Lolita" has visions of "When You Were Mine." It's as good as Musicology.
