Musicology, 2004

Musicology, Prince's 28th studio album, was released to coincide with the artist's induction in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. This album gem features riffing horn work from Candy Dulfer, Greg Boyer and longtime James Brown sideman Maceo Parker. But aided by the lurching stomp of a backbeat from drummer John Blackwell, Prince whips it all up into a variant on prog-rock, loaded with epic guitar and more nimble  than anything the likes of the Mars Volta ever attempted.
