Verdict based on samples: Wipe the sweat from your brow, he is not a onehitwonder. Gloriousness includes Black And Gold, Pocket, 21st Century, Hot Mess (Donna Summer meets Prince), Waiting For Time and Too Many Questions (which reminds me of early Seal). Clingwrap sounds just like The Time. I bet Sam knows all those old Paisley Park albums.
Early thoughts: Schizo. Some classic ABC tracks: The Very First Time, Caroline, Validation, Minus Love and some shocking crap, like the opening freakout Sixteen Seconds. Note that this record will be available in MP3 worldwide via 7 Digital.
Both albums are out April 28.
