I remember how excited I was to get this cassette tape the day it was released. My boyfriend and I were going to a friend's house, and as Mark was a fan, too, we listened to it in his 69 Rally Sport Camaro. After it was over, he looked at me with his "what the h--l was that?" expression, while I sat, with a blissful look on my face. He wasn't a fan after that day. I was even more enraptured with Prince than ever. (I knew then that the relationship with my boyfriend was doomed.) Throughout the years, the cassette stayed in my collection. I loved loved loved Pop Life-- as AIDS was really making news in those days, the song held great significance then. Around the World In A Day and Paisley Park were favorite driving songs, ones that helped when I was sitting in stop n go traffic here in Houston. America was, and still is, a staple on my running tape, now CD.

And Raspberry Beret? I tired of its constant repetitiveness on the radio at the time, but as it introduced my DAD to Prince's music--before, he was blinded by the sexually suggestive posters on my wall, prejudiced by the news coverage and controversy regarding his stage show and lyrics, and deafened by the rantings and ravings of Tipper Gore and her PMRC to actually sit and give the music a listen--and now he is a fan as well. His 2nd favorite song by Prince? Cream!!

Anyway, ATWIAD opened my 19 year old mind and enabled me to be more flexible when it came to my favorite artists expanding their style. Now, I'll listen to a CD three or four times before actually passing judgement, and you know what? Rarely, if ever, have I discarded any CD since.

This is one of Prince's very best...just as good as Purple Rain even if different. At the time it was released it disappointed the mainstream audience that didn't understand that Prince was much more than a mere hits maker. Still i don't understand why it didn't get more recognitions. But i think that nearly 2 decades later any true pop music lover would agree that this is a masterpiece.
Around the world in a day let you hear Prince at his warmest, happiest and you can feel the inspiration on each of the 9 tracks...Paisley Park is a psychedelic masterpiece, The ladder sounds like Purple Rain going gospel whereas the haunting condition of the heart stands as the album emotional peak. Even an apparent minor track like tambourine sounds refreshing and playful. There is not a weak momement on this album but just great music from start to finish.
Any Beatles fan should check this one out...

This album found Prince dabling in psychedelia (especially on the absolutely wonderful 'Paisley Park'). Not that this is a psychadelic album really, but it does mark a slight foray into an area in which Prince had not yet traveled up to this point. The first two tracks are great. In addition to the standard psychadelic trippy-ness, both the title track and 'Paisley Park' are filled with the type of optimism and idealism that largely characterized the psychedelic movement, and even more so, its companion hippie counter-culture. Yet there is a touch of somberness to both of these songs. There is a general somberness to this entire album actually. This is in direct contrast to his previous two masterstrokes. Both "1999" and "Purple Rain" were intense passionate affairs with off the charts kenetic energy. This album has its lively moments such as the stripped down funk jam 'Tamborine' and the dense multi-layered funk jam 'America', but this album generally finds Prince being more somber than we were used to seeing him up until this point (the most obvious exception is the huge hit 'Raspberry Beret' which is one of the greatest pop songs that anyone has ever made). He is especially contemplative on the utterly beautiful 'Condition of the Heart' which is a great song once it finally decides to get started after 1:45 seconds into the song. The other hit 'Pop Life' is yet another impeccably constructed funky & flawless pop song from Prince. It seems that Prince could pump this kind of stuff out in his sleep at this time. You're probably familiar with the two big hits off of this album, but please don't buy this album thinking that anything else on here sounds anything like those two songs because it doesn't.Read more ›

ATWIAD may be the most forgoten record Prince has ever had, and that's a shame. At first when this album was released in 1985, people didn't take to it because it wasn't Purple Rain. That is what helps it stand out as being one of the very best of Prince's albums. Imagine Prince's funk mixed with a little 1960's Soul Psychodelicide. The title track sets up the rest of the recod nicely. It wouldn't be a very good radio song, and that's the point. Every song is telling a small part of the whole album. Every song has an important roll within the album. The world he sings about in ATWIAD is all to familiar and very vivid. All you have to do is close your eyes and take the journey. There are the radio-friendly songs: Raspberry Beret, Paisley Park, Pop Life (which has one of the very best bass lines ever written) and America (he speaks out against all that is good and bad about our country). But if your looking for something totally different and colorful check out Around the World In A Day! It's a once in a lifetime that we are blessed with an album like this one.
