This was Prince's best album when it came out in my opinion. I feel this is when he started to do what he really wanted. It is super weird, which is good.

I think I prefer this album to Purple Rain. It is very minimalist in the instrumental backing of some tracks like Paisley Park but also very clever. I absolutely love 'Condition of the Heart' and 'The Ladder'. In years to come I predict that this will be considered a masterpiece like the Beatles SPLHCB!

From CJMishellsan 03/26/2017 23:21
Not his best album, but perhaps his most ambitious and strange. It's definitely a grower and will alienate fans of Purple Rain and other hits, aside from the baroque pop classic "Raspberry Beret", which everyone loves as much as the next Prince fan. This one is tied with Lovesexy and The Black album as his weirdest, but also most affecting work, I would say. It does have my favorite Prince song: "Temptation", which I consider to be one of the greatest vocal performances ever, even if it degenerates into the usual Prince cheese in the last few minutes. Despite all the talking, the jazz music going on behind it is fascinating. It's certainly worth giving a chance even if you don't like every single song.

A great album that was unfortunately overshadowed by the success of Purple Rain. Prince showcases his musical taste and ability once more featuring some very Beatlesque tracks like Raspberry Beret and Paisley Park or some very wild tracks like Temptation.

A good album, although I wouldn't go quite so far to suggest that it's psychedelic, like a lot of other people tend to claim. Still, some fine songs and performances, but again, as on other Prince CD's, the sound is a problem. Re-master the bloody things, please!!!

I'm not a massive Prince fan but I do like a lot of his songs, but generally not whole albums. However this is one I do like, bought on cassette back in the day. This is my kind of Prince rather than the R&B stuff and I enjoy this more than Purple Rain, it doesn't mean it's better, just my musical taste (or not)!!!!

Psychedelic music at its best. Prince shows that he can make any kind of music as his own. Prince and the Revolution had three albums. There were three masterpieces. With "Around the world in one day" the next level was reached. Certainly no cheaper successor of "Purple Rain" but a development at the highest level.

This is a record that grows on you, and once it does.. wow. This is where you can see the true genius of Prince. Here he is in his prime, howling, screaming, and hitting falsetto in the same 5 second span. Sex personified on a few tracks.

It's not his best work, but after a couple listens this went from 3.5 to 4 stars for me. Very enjoyable.
