Underrated album. I love "Come On"...what a serious grove! Definitely buy or download this one!

Track 10 is called ('eye' like) Funky Music, not just Funky Music

I personally don't think this album is worth ALL the negative hype it got. To be fair, this wasn't completely intended as a Prince album, but rather an NPG album, the difference being a slightly more mainstream-driven album (and in that regard, a less mainstream album it became). I think that, when approaching this record as an NPG release, my initial disappointment was less severe, and I slowly came to appreciate what Prince had in mind for it.

Very beat-driven, few really distinct melodies along with a few slow numbers, it's a rather predictable album, with lyrical content that doesn't do much justice. But even considering, there are some solid finds for me, like Mad Sex, Freaks On This Side, and the (hidden) track Wasted Kisses. Actually, these are really the only tracks that keep me interested in Newpower Soul. Again, not nearly his best, but still worth a listen.
