4.0 out of 5 stars NOT purple rain part 2- NOT a bad thing though...., 8 April 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: Around the World in a Day (Audio CD)
The follow up to Purple Rain, an admittedly on a frist listen it's impossible not to be a little dissapointed. After you've given the album a few goes, you may find you actually prefer it to Purple Rain- it's a very different album.
the opener, and title track is very hippy-dippy, middle eastern, with some good bass beats, but it's nothing particularly special. 'Paisley Park' has a good glam rock groove, and a nagging hook that goes around your head for a while. Like Purple Rain, the third track in is a vastly over the top ballad- akin to 'The Beautiful Ones'; called 'Condition of the heart' after a bery long (too long) build up, there lies a very dramtic, original song. The most commercial moment pops up afterwards as a relief, the excellnet 'raspberry beret'- which is string laden and jaunty.
'Tambourine' dissapoints, and shreiks 'Filler' everytime- use the skip for this one. 'AMerica' is brilliant though- a real catchy one, as its the brilliant 'Pop Life', which has a great groove, and good chorus. 'The Ladder; is a little bit too slow, but has a nice bit of soul. 'Temptation', unfortunately is another filler- akin to the track 'Do Me Baby' on Controversy- it's SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO long, and rather exhausting.

I am very happy with the cd. The price was excellent and it arrived very quickly. It is also a gem if you like Prince and has some great songs including Pop Life and The Ladder.

5.0 out of 5 stars Trip Round Prince's World, 9 Nov 2014

This review is from: Around the World in a Day (Audio CD)
8 Dippy,Tippy-hoppy,poppy,funky wonderful imaginitive tracks,(except 'The Ladder')which take you on a Trip round Prince's 80's World. "Temptation" being the leery, sleazy "climax tour-de-force.( Beck was surely influenced by'Tambourine' on his eponymous track?)

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic vintage Prince, 8 Dec 2006
By 
Edward Hough (Nottingham, UK) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Around the World in a Day (Audio CD)
This album was released after Purple Rain, and did it's job admirably. It has all the hallmarks of Prince of the mid '80s- pop (Paisley Park, Beret), slow (Condition of the Heart), 'meaasge' song (the Ladder) and ends with the fantastic funk-fuelled 'Temptation'. A slight criticism I have with the album is that the songs, although individually great, don't exactly gel as a whole. Having said that, the album is essential listening, and provides a view into the transition from the late '70s-early '80s funk to the more polished products he went on to release.
