Coming around again

On the upside, it sounds a little different from "1999" and "Purple Rain"--most of the time. The downside is that it sounds like a fatally-flawed remake of Prince's earlier efforts. Where once he was wild, unpredictable, a visionary, here he sounds like a kid at the end of his rope who can still make some darn good tunes, since most of the songs on the record were better than anything else that was being released at the time, but who doesn't really know much about anything, except for his lover's tambourine (maybe). I mean, it sounds nice, but even the sound can't transcend hollow psychedelia. "Pop Life" has a nice groove, but it sounds more original than it is. The same could be said for the album.
