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

From CJMishellsan 01/11/2017 21:03
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

Besides Sign of the times this is my absolute favorite. A colorful mix of funk, jazz, pop, soul and rock. Then there is the certain factor Prince. It's an album as a unified whole.

It's been a while since I've listened to this. I've always considered it to be slight and poppy but it's actually quite a bizarre affair.

A great soundtrack to a not very good film.

I've been a Prince fan since the early 80's and this is still my favourite Prince album. Maybe not his most prolific but it is quirky and holds together as unit, I love the atmosphere created by the first 4 tracks and the tracks Kiss, Boys & Girls & Sometimes In Snows In April. Venus De Milo is a beautiful instrumental, altogether an album that hasn't dated.

Perhaps this is my secret favorite princealbum!
You put it on and its starts with such drive you have to listen and 40 minutes later its over but time flies fast!!!
I like the experimental orchestral arrangements and the different background voices from song to song. Its sounds fresh and dry. The arrangements changes from track to track but there is one great climax in the whole concept.
