1928 days after his death, the event that constitutes the release, these days, of this first posthumous unreleased album, is certainly able to mark out the interest that will constitute, from now, on the posterity and the possible artistic respect of this one, logically waited, for an artist out of norms - The task is not easy, others before him, having seen there to tarnish and to extinguish forever the spark - Crushing hardness of a system.
But let's proceed in order, shall we? First sign of a spatio-presential shift, we are not sure that the artwork of welcome2america could have resembled the calamitous illustration worthy of a low-priced compilation that officiates at the frontispiece of the opus - Regrettable forgetfulness, by the officiants, of the nanometric and historical meticulousness of the author? Let's look away, first concession, be positive ...
Completed in 2010, announced after 20ten, finally neglected by Love Symbol, but nevertheless preciously preserved since then in the fortress of Paisley park, welcome2america is no less prophetic, since it prefigures rather well the future themes of the mandate of the 45th president of the United States of America, elected on January 20th, 2017 and forgotten since January 20th, "Welcome to America Where you can fail at your job, get fired, rehired And get a seven hundred billion dollar tip ...". Racism (running game (son of a slave master)), legitimate emancipation, frictions of dogmatic obscurantism (same page, same book), compassion (born 2 die), so many subjects of the worrying attention from the elegant activist of Chanhassen, who does not forget, for all that, to make us sway (hot summer - dirty mind) without more incidental consequences.
Perfect embodiment of a delightful sonic fusion of mainstream genres and mass consciousness raising, this code breaker probably deserves more than a simple and apparent back up made of spectacle and artifact - The vacuity of things and that fentanyl shit.
