NYTimes - almost 9 years
Less than three weeks before this year's Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, still the country's banner festival of alternative rock, Prince joined the bill in the most prominent slot. He was Saturday night's final main-stage show, at the end of a day including important sets by Portishead and M.I.A. The addition seemed like a last-minute

THE WEEK AHEAD: Dec. 4-Dec. 10; POP/JAZZ
NYTimes - about 11 years
SINEAD O'CONNOR's excellent recent album, ''THROW DOWN YOUR ARMS,'' is a roots-reggae primer, but not in the usual way: the songs, many of them written by Burning Spear, are all righteous protests in behalf of the Rastafarian faith, and she approached them, she has said, ''as sacred text.'' She made the album with ROBBIE SHAKESPEARE and SLY DUNBAR,

POP REVIEW;Mirror, Mirror, Who's That Narcissist?
NYTimes - about 21 years
The Time played Tramps on Tuesday night with all the equipment of a hard-working funk band: drums, keyboards, bass and guitar. Its definitive prop, however, was silent; a mirror that Jerome Benton held up to a preening Morris Day. In the Time's early-1980's heyday, when the Minneapolis band was endorsed by Prince, Mr. Day made himself funk's

Review/ Film; A Spiritual Prince in a Back-Lot Musical

This will sound unlikely when said about a man who dances in his new film wearing spike-heeled, glitter-trimmed, hip-high leggings, but Prince is showing off his spiritual side. This will sound even more unlikely: Prince is nearly ready for Broadway. "Graffiti Bridge," the new film Prince has scored, written and directed, is no less feebly plotted

'PURPLE RAIN,' WITH PRINCE
NYTimes - over 32 years
''Purple Rain,'' which introduces Prince, the rising young rock performer, to theatrical films, is probably the flashiest album cover ever to be released as a movie. However, like many album covers, ''Purple Rain,'' though sometimes arresting to look at, is a cardboard come-on to the record it contains. Prince's soundtrack recording has already
