Can't think of one single reason to buy the "paper" for any other reason Please god nobody ever start a thread about the Dail f£ckin Mail....

Perhaps a cynical ploy to maintain the older fanbase who bought "Purple Rain" 20+ years ago.

I remember reading that Prince had enough songs in the "kitty", never to have to write another..is he regurgitating a few of those now in order to cash-in his pension?

Wonder what the Mail will bundle next week? Artic Monkeys? Damien Hirst installations? the complete works of Banksy? Nietzsche in mandarin?

Took my medication and feel much more relaxed......

To answer the thread, I voted no coz' it's both a further dumbing down of worthwhile culture and, to be fair, disingenuous to poor old Mr Symbol (and I don't eve like him!).

It's not that it was "packaged" with The Mail........... honest

Good idea in principle.

Wrong "news"paper.


Listening to those record company apologists crying
over the last few weeks has been really fun.

Fair play to the littl' guy!

Even if I liked Prince, which I don't, nothing would induce me to buy the Mail on Sunday or any other day.

Re: Prince's New Album

My parents bought the paper for the CD so that I could have it, they are kind folks (i am 35).

I started listening to it in the car, but got bored, Prince was great then fell into the 'suffering artist' mode, a bit like George Michael.

Bring back 'Dirty Mind' and 'When Doves Cry', now they were songs.

I like the idea of albums on free media, I have downloaded 'for free...' then found that if the album is good I will go buy it, if not then I delete it and move on. The last 3 albums I have bought have been 'tested' first.

No! Don't bring any of his songs back - keep them resigned to the 80's where they belong.

I got over the embarrassment of buying the Mail by hiding it inside a copy of Asian Babes at the counter.
