The New Power Generation is the most talented and versatile band Prince has ever fronted, and they fulfill their potential on The Love Symbol Album. Although the NPG factored heavily on Diamonds and Pearls, it still sounded like a solo Prince album. Symbol sounds like a band performing together, working off of each other's strengths and weaknesses. Opening with the dance smash "My Name Is Prince" and the deep funk of "Sexy M.F.," The Love Symbol Album has Prince's best dance tracks since The Black Album. But Prince wasn't content; he decided to run the gamut of modern pop/R&B/dance, and the music is uniformly accomplished and excellent. Unfortunately, he also decided to make a "rock soap opera," so the music is saddled with ridiculous lyrics and annoying sound bridges by Kirstie Alley. However, The Love Symbol Album has some of the finest, most inventive music of Prince's career.

I really did like this CD!! This CD was different, and it had a diffferent vibe to it. I was actually excited when I first heard it because there was a lot of rock/hip hop/r& b/jazz/and down right FUNK!!! The whole Egyptian theme was pretty cool, and I just love dancing to this CD!!!!!
THIS CD TOOK ME BACK TO MY VIRGINITY. 'MORNING PAPER' MADE ME FEEL AS IF I WAS BEING KISSED IN A CAVE. THERE IS A MINI-MOVIE TO THIS CD AND IT IS A MUST. MAYTE'S BELLY DANCING IS AMAZING. I LOVED THE MOVIE & THE CD.
His songs are full of deep, motivating symbolism. Anyone who listens to 7 and does not believe every word, just did not listen to the song.
1992's "Symbol" is a outstanding album. You could say that it's a companion piece to "Diamonds and Pearls", which was released the year before, but this album is much better, and The New Power Generation really show off their musical diversity. The album covers a wide range of different musical styles, everthing from reggae, to dance, to downright funk("Sexy M.F.). The best and most popular song from this record is "7". Pick this one up!
