I was surprised at how lackluster the entire first half felt, even the more overtly sexual track "Girls & Boys" hearkens back to his early work but doesn't come close to most tracks on "Dirty Mind", for instance. However, there seems to be real passion in the second half. "Kiss" is my personal favourite here, but don't disregard the final track which is very deeply felt.

Also, is it just me or does the production sound really murky on this one ? There's something about the lack of clarity that unfortunately fails to draw me in. In conclusion, this latest soundtrack is a bit of a mixed bag, but "Parade" manages to redeem itself the further it goes on, ending on some strong tracks.

Another vintage 80s release for Prince. This is a soundtrack and follows the theme but many of these songs stand on their own such as Mountains, Kiss, Anotherloverholenyohead & Sometimes It Snows In April. This is perhaps his most artistic album.

Complete Masterpiece album. Speaks volumes that Kiss is the least interesting track.

This is another essential Prince album, like Around the World, his musical diversity is displayed well plus has some amazing highlights.

I listen to this one on vinyl all the time since my uncle gave me an original copy along with Purple Rain. The sum is greater than it's parts for sure as it has a loose concept going on based on the horrible movie Prince directed (The one talent he didn't exactly shine in, though a decent actor). Some of the songs sound a bit too similar and are either way too short, or go on too long. But I still have to say that Mountains & Sometimes it Snows In April are among his greatest musical achievements. Sometimes In Snows In April carries a deeper emotional weight for me, and I'm sure for others, concerning Prince died in April, and the song is about the concept character, Tracy, dying. I find myself skipping much of the album to get to those songs, along with Kiss. It's not because the rest of the songs are bad by any means, but those three are so classic they kind of overshadow everything else. This, along with Around The World In A day are his trippiest albums; but there is still plenty of funk and pop to go around.

One of Prince's greatest albums. Slightly more quirkier than usual and the record is all the better for it. Excellent songs in, under the cherry moon, sometimes it snows in April, and, of course, kiss. Great pop music.

Agreed with below, his second best after Sign O' the Times. Sometimes it Snows in April is such a masterpiece...I love every second of it
