  • On AROUND THE WORLD IN A DAY, the follow-up to their megahit PURPLE RAIN, Prince and the Revolution add a generous helping of psychedelia to their style, enlisting Prince's father along the way to co-write several songs, including the title track. Many critics at the time dismissed AROUND THE WORLD IN A DAY as a turkey follow-up to the outstanding PURPLE RAIN. However, the achingly beautiful ballad "Condition of the Heart," and the stunning "The Ladder," as well as the pop classic "Raspberry Beret," could easily sit beside the band's best material. Ballads and pop gems aside, Prince is as cocky and as sexually self-assured as ever on AROUND THE WORLD. When he vamps and winks his way through "Temptation," the epic album-closer, he moans "everybody on this earth has got a vice and mine, little darlin', is the opposite of ice."
Professional Reviews
Q - 3 Stars - Good

Pitchfork (Website) - "After he conquered the world with PURPLE RAIN, Prince made a hard left turn into bright and sweet psychedelia. But the album had more going on beneath the surface."
