Act of God sports some very ignorant lyrics, but I love the music. Compassion makes me laugh. That's some silly shit. Beginning Endlessly doesn't do much for me. From Future Soul Song on, I love the album aside from his typical lyric issues.

I am not even sure what make of them. He called the tax (both local and federal) collectors 'bankers'...then sings "Freedom ain't free"? So, we need to pay taxes?


and compare that to "Dear Mr Man" in which he asks the same banker to lend a helping hand?

I do not want to get too political but it is a political song (and in his later years due to living in Prince Land for so long was what was worst at) but what is he saying? That taxes need to be lower? I agree... but his message was conflicted.

Anyone for banning the AR15 must be on the side of the criminal as once banned only criminals will have them.

20Ten sounds like a commercial break. The whole thing sounded so thin and mild that it's hard to resonate with on any level. Walk In Sand sounds like an ad for some male encancement drug and Everybody Loves Me sounds like a special ed anthem. Some of P's weakest lyrics ever throughout. Prince whines about having to pay taxes, sighs about how things were so much better in his day and waxes New Age bullshit. Yawn.

I love sticky like glue. The album as a whole just has a vibe of bland John Tesh, Richard Marx style mixed through the lens of Prince. One of my least favorite albums from Prince.

The whole packaging via religious cult graphics was a turn off for me as well.

Good record, not his best but definitely not his worst!

I've always said that song would make a perfect mini pad commercial.

We don’t mourn artists because we knew them. We mourn them because they helped us know ourselves.

Why do I keep reading he gave it away for free? I'm sure he got paid for his work on this album?

There was going to be a Deluxe Version that was going to be physically released in the US. Someone made a fan-made mix:

2oTen Deluxe:

Cause & Effect

Laydown (Extended)

Rich Friends

Future Soul Song

Beginning Endlessly

Sticky Like Glue

Act of God

Walk In Sand

Sea Of Everything

Lavaux

Hot Summer

Although I think the original album flows REALLLLLLY well, the way he edited this mix is really nice.

Meh... Reevaluating 20TEN, The Slaughterhouse, etc...

Nothing to reevaluate... Uninspiring albums, bland... 20TEN had two GREAT songs, Sticky Like Glue, Future Soul Song...

I like that mix. I was hoping Prince would release 20Ten Deluxe with all the talk about it then.

"Sticky Like Glue" is one of P's greatest songs from ANY era..

"Walk In Sand" has great personal sentimental value...when my teenage son was a little toddler, 'Walk In Sand' and "Private Joy" were his very first favorite songs...the first 2 songs that i remember him saying, "Daddy please play Private Joy" or "Daddy please play "Walk In The Sand"(as he called it)...good times

Underatted and dissed by Prince himself. He finally got out the old synths made 3 fantastics tracks (Lavaux, Sticky and one of his last truly great songs, Future Soul Song).

The rest is pure filler but some of it is fun (Compassion, Laydown, Everybody Loves Me). So in all a great 6 track EP.

I only skip Compassion & Everybody Loves Me, love the rest of it. Walk In Sand is fucking beautiful!!! & Sea of Everything is divine, they’re my faves on the album. I wish I’d heard it when it dropped, but I’d fallen off the chase (I’m in the US).
heart prince I never met you, but I LOVE you & I will forever!! Thank you for being YOU - my little Princey, the best to EVER do it prince heart

I could see that being used in a tampon or panty liner advert. Future Soul Song is the only good (not great) song on it.

Yeah, we'll, we'll try to imagine what silence looks like.

He's commenting on how the banking system favors the rich and affluent and preys on the poor and middle class. "the Money Changers" and all that.

I don't break it out much and the whole thing feels kind of cobbled together. I pulled the 4 or 5 songs off it and spliced them together with some other stuff.
