Biography

Few artists have created a body of work as rich and varied as Prince. During the '80s, he emerged as one of the most singular talents of the rock & roll era, capable of seamlessly tying together pop, funk, folk, and rock. Not only did he release a series of groundbreaking albums; he toured frequently, produced albums and wrote songs for many other artists, and recorded hundreds of ...

5.0 out of 5 stars Parade really deserves revisiting 30 Jun 2002
Format:Audio CD
1986.
Prince and the Revolution fans were slavering for the new album and film. I think we'll gently pass over "Under The Cherry Moon", which has luckily sunk without a trace since release.
But, awkward as the film was, I don't think anyone expected the gorgeous wall of sound and shock of "Parade". Exquisite, happy tunes thick with instrumentation allied with sparce, brilliant songs that really made the most of the new invention: the CD. In tracks like "Girls and Boys" or most famously, "Kiss", Prince really was pushing and stretching to see what he could make of this new scratch-free mode of delivery.
And how utterly different to the playful and wayward "Around the world In a Day"! It was almost as if the guys folded their arms and said, "Right - you want a hit album? We'll show you a hit album". Then delivered an extraordinary, no compromises slice of extraordinary talent.
Having just listened to the album again for the first time in about seven years or more (hence this review), the glorious fun of tracks like the album's introduction, "Christopher Tracy's Parade", alongside "Life Can Be So Nice" and "Mountains" make this one hell of an uplifting album and I well remember putting the 12" of "Mountains" on over and over again at home.
You just can't help grinning. It's so obvious they had great fun recording it. This is a great, great album. Buy it, you idiot!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the most underrated albums ever 30 Sep 2003
By jamo
Format:Audio CD
1999 is often cited as the start of his artistic peak, Purple rain was the 'Big one' and Sign o' the times is the 'critics album'. This album seems to be slightly overlooked in Prince's catalog, by critics anyway and overlooked in popular music in general yet this for me is his true masterpiece.I have never heard anouther album quite like this, it rivals Tom Waits' 80's work in its originality and quirkyness.I wont spend time picking out induvidual moments or tracks, all ill say is this album is simply amazing, a joy from beginning to end. It is endlessly experimental and packed with ideas and has consistently great lyrics (unusual for some of his other work). Nobody ever talks about this album and it leaves me completely bewildered.I am into every genre of music you could name and yet this is one of maybe 4 albums out of my 500 plus CDs that I always come back too. If you like Prince - buy this, if you like truly original music -. Funky/Quirky/Sexy/Experimental/European/Smart/Beautiful/timeless

By C. Verspeak VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
In the mid- to late-eighties, Prince had the world at his feet. He had burst onto the musical scene at the end of the previous decade and rackee up a commercialy successful albums at the rate of one a year ever since his debut. His first film, Purple Rain, was also a major hit and he quickly followed it with Under the Cherry Moon. While the film struggled to make an impact, the OST was another successful evolution in Prince's musical career.
The film is a romantic tragedy and so many of the songs on the OST have a melancholic and/or romantic theme. After the psychedelia of the previous year's 'Around the World in a Day', Prince continued to experiment with the sound and production values on his recordings. Some of the tracks are accomapnied by the nicest strings on any Prince record so far and some are really stripped to the bones funk (New Position for example).
Although this record did not chart as highly as some of its predecessors, it is still a firm favourite in many a fan's collection. It contains aome of his most emotive writing. 'Sometimes it Snows in April', for example, is a really beautiful song about losing someone you love. 'Mountains' calls us all to believe there is something better waiting for everyone willing to try and get there. 'Do U Lie?' absent mindedly poses questions to a lover to the accompaniment of a French Riviera style accordion. The singles are pretty good too. 'Girls & Boys' was the first Prince video I ever saw and the saxophone on the bridge is still one of my favourite sounds. The original version of 'Kiss' is here too. Accept no substitutes. Even though I liked the production Art of Noise did, Prince is still the best man to sing this song.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't read this, just buy the album 8 July 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
From 1984 to about 1990, I was one of Prince's biggest fans. I had all his albums and singles and went to see him in concert for the Parade tour.
This album and 'Around the world in a day' are the best albums that he made and are the ones that I go back to and listen to most often.
Just like the best football teams aren't made up of the best players but rather of players that fit well together, so this album isn't full of outstanding tracks but they fit so well together that they sound good when listened to as a whole.
Having said this, there are some outstanding tracks on the album. 'Kiss' obviously is one of Prince's best singles but other songs stand out. 'Sometimes it snows in April' is one of Prince's best ever songs that still manages to bring a tear to the eye.
'Mountains' although not one of the best songs has one of the best intros of any prince song.
'Girls and Boys' is a brilliant pop song with some fantastic horns in it.
Overall a great album to listen to.
