    I really like HitnRun series, Two has some really awesome sounds and catchy toons. Politicaly charged lyrics: with songs like "Baltimore", remains relevant and true. Till we meet again, rest in peace your royal badness.
  • Amazing! Awesome!

    This definitely sounds like tracks that didn't make it to released albums, but as a whole, there is some continuity here between tracks, even if they are missing the commercial hooks that permeate pop music these days, formulaic and soulless. Sure, "All about that Bass" is fun to sing along with, but then I hear "No" (also catchy) and find it hard to believe that the same person wrote them. They are just hooks, no real essence behind them. That's not art, that's money grubbing. Prince actually puts some thought into his songs, some fun (love the way he references "Kiss" in "Stare") and musicality, experimenting with different arrangements, fade outs, instrumentation. Writing for the masses anymore is a waste of time, considering the Kardashian's are a household name, and hip-hop rarely has anything close to a positive message. So if you're fans of this mentality, pass this up. If you love music, really love music, then you'll enjoy this album. No real barn-burners, but the arrangements keep you on your toes, and moving your feet or head.

    Prince's death had an affect on me that I was not expecting, not just because he was a great musician, but because we all learned how much of a philanthropist he was! And, of course, most people figured he would live to be 100. He did not do anything for praise from people; he remained true to himself and wanted to please only God. Hence, the bibilical undertones in his music overall. I do not cry when artists pass away but found myself trying to fight tears when Prince died. Goosebumps, even. As far as the album, you have to be in a relaxed mood to really appreciate this gem. It has a very jazzy and R&B feel. I listen to the Art Official Age album in the morning (Sidebar: It is a must have,too!!) and pop in HITNRUN Phase Two after a long day or while I am whipping up dinner in the kitchen. As someone nearing the age of 40, I spend more time listening to the lyrics of a song than I do the beat, even though the instrumental is great, which actually goes without saying. It's Prince for goodness sake! His play on words has always amazed me. Most of his music is timeless. Things that he spoke about on tthe Sign 'O the Times album rings true today. "Baltimore" (on this album) is a sweet and thoughtful tribute to the Black Lives Matter movement. I miss Prince deeply. A true icon and a class act!!!

    Loved every song on this album. Updated R&B that was silky smooth & easy to put on shuffle & listen over & over.
  • This is a return to form…and my special story—or Revelation—before and after hearing of his passing.

    I haven’t liked a Prince album since Diamond and Pearls and loved one since Sign ‘o The Times (still classic and inspirational—“Starfish and Coffee” is my fave Prince song ever as it reflects my view of live, always think the Impossible possible and strive to be yourself). HITNRUN Phase Two isn’t perfect but close to a masterpiece. The day of his passing I became reminded of the first time I heard one of the most real special Prince songs. I heard “How Come You Don’t Call Me” played the day he died on a RnB radio station in the mailroom of my apartment building. First the DJ announced she was playing a special request then the solo piano began—immediately I went back to the first time I heard it on the b-side of “1999”; I flipped the 45 over and bam I knew I became introduced to a genius. What a special memory I cherish. Hearing it that day I was quizzical over it being the first and only time I ever heard it on played on the radio. I just stood there for the whole song as if I knew the moment was special…really feeling it. I did not know of his death until I got back to my apartment and decided to review the day’s news on the WashingtonPost.com. A picture of Prince was all I saw at first; I scrolled one and was just shocked and silent. Hearing “How Come…” became a spiritual moment for me then—forever etched with my first (and many) memories with the song. Prince’s passing really caught me off guard… When I went back to create a playlist for riding the bus to that night, I realized how many songs off his early albums I truly loved. When I let the playlist begin my trip...I became hit with a joy of the Spirt. Yes, he’s gone but he left us are a divine expression in the body of an extreme brilliance of ART...the track “It’s Gonna Be a Beautiful Night” rose inside of me the glow of Heaven…I let it repeated it at least 5 times. I got to my destination and it turned into a beautiful night. Arising out from sadness and shock his music, my memories contained with them are gifts—I’m ever happy with them. This album over the days I’ve listened to it gives me that same feeling as I have with that early body of work…

    Prince gave us the funk w/ a bass line u can't deny on "Stare". If u listen close enough 2 "Rock & Roll Lovr Affair", it's as if " Raspberry Beret" was re-visited. "2.Y.2.D" was written with Prince's witty pen that only he possesses, but stays in the groove. "Xtraloveable is a vault joint the still sounds as fresh as the original recording. "Look at me, Look at u" is sultry. "Groovy Potential" is everything u can expect from Prince with a "feel-good" tone. This albums sound-bed is definitely one u can tuck urself in with. Prince is a university. Anything u wanna know in the realm of music, u can check him out. 80's album from him... Great! He also evolved & got better. This album proves it.
