In addition there are plenty of ecclectic numbers which combine oh so many elements. The Cross offers some religious symbolism combined with psychedlic tones. Starfish And Coffee is a delightful pop tune with pleasing piano and some funky drums accents. And that Housequake number just has me in stiches with Prince's oddball vocal stylings about a dance craze that he's trying to invent. Shut up already.
All in all this is a very strong CD. A few songs drag on a bit in spots but I am very impressed with the many textures. One of the first CD's to get by Prince if you desire to collect original recordings as opposed to compilations.
