    I wasn't even born when this album was released, so I don't know how well it was received or what singles got played alot and whatnot. I'm judging this cd based purely on the music only. This was one of the last good Prince albums of the 90's before it started going downhill, around '96. The musical styles on this album vary alot. You get power-pop, hip-hop/R&B, love ballads, and rock n' roll. Maybe Prince was experimenting or maybe he was trying to please all of his fans. Whatever the case, this album is pretty decent. I'll rate the songs as follows: 1. Thunder- 5/5: This song is like a rock opera with a gospel tinge to it. You can also hear a slight hip-hop influence with the backing beat. This tune is pretty catchy. 2. Daddy Pop- 4/5: This song is heavily based in hip-hop and even features some rapping. But the music is great and the refrain is pretty catchy too. It doesn't sound like classic Prince though if thats what you like. 3. Diamonds and Pearls- 5/5: This is a pretty little love ballad that makes you really pine for romance in your life. It kind of reminds me of all those couples sitting down for champagne and making love afterwards near a fireplace. 4. Cream- 5/5: Pure R&B that coincidentally goes through my ears like a fine lotion. Its got that slight little hip-hop influence to it because you can dance to it. 5. Strollin- 4/5: This isnt a bad song; it just didnt really stand out to me. Has kind of a basic feel to it. 6. Willing and Able- 5/5: Shows some rock influence and kind of makes me bob my head. 7. Gett Off- 5/5: A major hip-hop influence here that benefits the song greatly. It's incredibly catchy and danceable. 8. Walk Dont Walk- 5/5: One of the more underrated gems of this album, great vocals by Prince & Rosie. 9. Jughead- 3/5: The beat is pretty good to this song but the rapping just totally messes it up. I was really disappointed when Rosie has started to rap, and Prince was barely in this song, he only had about a good 15-20 second rap. Prince could've at least got a cooler rapper for this song or something. 10. Money Don't Matter 2Night- 5/5: One of my favourite songs of all time, he really shines in this one. It's talking about poverty & greed, and saying that money isn't all that important. One of the best on this album. 11. Push- 3/5: An example of how rap hurt one of Prince's songs. And it's not even rap in general; it's the rapper he used. This song had great music and some good vocals but the rappers made it sound corny. 12. Insatiable- 5/5: This song is really cool. It's like a love ballad with the R&B feel, but as the song goes on it fades into a rockish vibe. The lyrics are great too. 13. Live 4 Love- 5/5: This might be my favorite song on the album. It's got the hip-hop feel to it but it incorporates funk really heavily. The chorus is infectious and there is some awesome guitar. Versatility is something I admire about Prince. I hope that review helped. I basically say: this has a mostly R&B/hip hop vibe to it. If you like that side of Prince, then you'll probably love this. Even if you dont like that side of him, there are still some great songs on here worth having.

    Well, I was actually alive when this album came out.... lol. I LOVE PRINCE. Ever since I could listen to the radio I have been a huge fan. Before I get into a fanatic rant, I just want to say that this album is one of my favorites. Yes, the rapping is a little rough but it was 1991, what rap wasn't a little strange compared to now. I like it either way. I can't pick a favorite on this album.
