This review is from: Parade: Original Soundtrack - Under the Cherry Moon (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.
