Prince – Diamonds and Pearls
September 26, 2006
Rated: NR Runtime: 60 min Rating: 3 out of 5 stars
Diamonds and Pearls was released in 1992 by Prince. This DVD captures all of the videos plus some live shots and compiles it into a quasi storyline that might actually make sense if you were drinking heavily.
Ok, so it’s easy to make fun of Prince, but there’s no denying his talent whether you actually like his stuff or not. I do actually like most of his stuff when he’s not trying to preach. And Diamonds and Pearls was one of those CD’s that I used to test the bass of new stereos when shopping. Cuts like Cream, Get Off and the title track will really “thump”.
And there-in lies one of the reasons I really like having this in my collection now in DVD format. The cheapo dolby setups you can buy at the warehouse stores do pretty well with movies, but if you wanna see how good your system really is, drop this DVD in. On a good system with a smart subwoofer, it sounds great. On a cheap system you’ll either hear nothing but muddy bass or you’ll find your woofer laying in the floor in agony.
If you’re a fan of Prince, you absolutely should have this DVD in your collection. If you’re not, but enjoy showing off the musical capabilities of your home theater setup, I can still recommend it. Just listen to Cream over and over again.
