Around The World In A Day



SLEEVE: NM  MEDIA: NM   YEAR: 1985  ORIGIN: Japan  EXTRAS: Has obi & insert

 Purple Rain showcased Prince's creative prowess, but even his most devoted followers weren't ready for Around the World in a Day's unique psychedelia. Prince transported us to his fantastical world with Purple Rain, and Around the World in a Day is teeming with strange religious iconography, mysticism, and complex metaphors among lush guitars, synthesizers, strings, and layers of vocals.

It's a tough album to crack, but some tracks stand-out: "Raspberry Beret" has a wonderful, catchy chorus, "Pop Life" criticizes celebrity culture, "Condition of the Heart" is a beautiful ballad, "America" is funk-infused, "Paisley Park" features intense psychedelia, and the title track is a majestic, multi-colored pastiche of Magical Mystery Tour.
