This review is from: Around the World in a Day (Audio CD)
When Around the World in a Day was released Prince was the New hot pop star. Purple Rain had sold millons and he had become a house hold name. Prince was nevr to achieve sales anywhere near thise of Purple Rain, but what he did do was release album after album of pure genius. Around the world in a day was to isolate alot of people who had enjoyed Purple Rain. That was Princes intentention. I fyou listened to his albums from 1980's Dirty Mind Through to 1988's Lovesexy you can hear Prince progressing. Each record has elements of the one before but also adds some new. Around the world in a day is seen as Princes Psychadelic album. It uses many world music instruments and strange effects. The music is colurful and at times introspective. such as on the beautiful Condition of the Heart. The funk touches are still there for example when the title track when amongst the sitars and flutes comes Princes keyboard Horns and the bared boned funk of tambourine. This album is chock a block full with great melodies such as Pop Life and Raspberry beret. To sum it up it is a wonderfully weird beautiful album that is one of his most over looked albums.
