Around The World In A Day

Another 80s classic album by Prince. He constantly improved and developed his own sound up until 1984 when "Purple Rain" exploded worldwide. What did he do next? A complete about-turn with "Around the world in a day". Not many are that bold or confident to turn away from a global mega-success - it informed the world that here's an artist who wants to challenge, explore and if you love music - demands your attention. Although this album is not his best, it was the start of a mini-period of his 'kaleidoscopic' reign taking left and right turns - nobody knew where he was going next, bursting with ideas, sonic colours and textures - moving onto "Parade" to "Sign of the Timess" to "Lovesexy" - he was truly the most exciting musical artist of the time. It's worth getting this album for "Condition of the Heart" alone.

Vinyl purchase. First copy was warped and had a pressing defect that made it skip (side A track 3) - I changed supplier. Now have a flat quality album. Excellent mastering, and came in a poly/paper inner sleeve. great copy of a cool L.P.

What can I say? This is such an underrated album. Tracks such as The Ladder, Raspberry Beret, Paisley Park, Condition of the Heart and Pop Life tell you that this is a Prince album of the first rank. RIP Prince you glorious genius.

I've always enjoyed the music from this album and was devastated when I realised it had got lost in our house move with several other Prince C.D's so getting all the lost C.D's replaced and a chance to listen to them all again.

Didn't play this much when it was released but over the intervening years I have come to love it more and more. Some of the non single tracks are exceptional.

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?)
