Vinyl Repressing coming!!! Read below

Some of the albums in this particular batch fall in the era when CD sales took over the industry, and Warners and the other big record companies made little to no vinyl editions of the records. These new pressings will feature the albums in their original format (no bonus tracks). Here’s the full list of what’s to come:

June 21st: “Around the World in A Day” (1985)
July 19th: “Parade (Under the Cherry Moon soundtrack)” (1986)
August 23rd: “Sign o’ the Times”(1987)
September 20th: “The Black Album”(1987 recorded; 1994 released)
October 18th: “Lovesexy” (1988) and “Batman” soundtrack (1989)
November 22nd: “Graffiti Bridge” soundtrack (1990) and “Diamonds and Pearls” (1991)
December 13th: “The Love Symbol” (1992)

This is one of those Prince album's that were more or less flukes upon release and later regarded for its brilliance. But for how much I like this album I don't think it compares very well to his surrounding discography, being smushed between Sign 'O' The Times and Batman; I feel this has mostly lost its standing place, which is a real shame.

The first few listens I gave this album in its entirety what I heard was rather mundane instrumentation layered with muddy production and often overwhelming samples. What I later--and now--hear in this release is a comprehensive (and yet somewhat mysterious) tour through Princian intellect, namely the compromise between sex and love and god. I understand finally why the reason he had for making the entire album one track; you simply HAVE to hear it in this fashion.

But as much as I enjoy this album there are still a few tracks that I don't care for much. The first three tracks are what I mean by muddy production: too much (or sometimes too little) going on for any melody to really bloom. The album for me doesn't really flourish until I reach Anna Stesia (which in my mind is one of Prince's best melodies) followed by the fun and eclectic Dance On; Lovesexy is a great track, and the better known ballad When 2 R In Love is totally worth hearing in this album than Black. The last two tracks are good, but they kind of finish the album off where it began, with a lack of clarity in the production.

All in all this album really sort of sets things straight for people trying to figure out 'why?'; it may also confuse the listener even more. Still, if you don't like the way the album is presented, try finding the copy that was released with separate tracks (or separate them manually with a music program).
