The Original Se7en (The Time)


Have y'all heard "Trending"? The Time have gotten back together & put out an original album. Prince decided that they couldn't use their band name, so they decided to call themselves "The Original Se7en".

I was shocked as I started to recognize Morris Day's voice and "character" emerge in "(We're) Trending"! He's still a nut!

Glad to see the boys are back with some decent songs!

I just listened to the single. It was pretty good. After reading about the history of the group, I did not know that there was all that rivalry between Prince and them.

I never knew that Prince was that petty!They should do well on tour.

Oh yea. Morris Day's voice is as strong as ever, and easily recognizable.

Btw, I used to know a couple people who went to high school with Day. Forget what they said about him, but it was favorable.

@Crabrice: Yeah, there's definitely tension between Prince and all his proteges. If you saw the Unsung episode of "Alexander O'Neal & Cherelle", you would've heard about Prince's tendencies toward people he "mentors". :rules:

@Tea_Honey: I was listening to the Trendin' track a few weeks ago for the first time at work. Didn't think much, until Morris Day started clowin' like he always does on his records. Then, I was like "Wait! Is this The Time?!? :oo "

I've been meaning to get the music off of Amazon, but get sidetracked.

Okay, you done gone and making me say it - the 'clowning' you refer to I presume is that narcissistic crap? Great beat, but I seriously I don't like narcissists! I'd just have to excuse Mr. Morris "Cool Breeze I'm so Foine" Day.

Well...you did talk to someone who knew him personally, and they said he was a nice guy. :dunno:

I think the narcissistic Morris Day is an act that has worked for The Time for years.:cool: I understand that's not your personal taste, but to each his / her own.

They didn't say he was 'nice'. I'd have remembered that because after seeing The Time perform AND his role in "Purple Rain", I would have been suprised. My impression was that he was a regular kid in high school, more on the good side than delinquent. Like most. And yea, men who think they're 'all that and a bag of chips' are not my cup of tea.
