**** Als het van Prince is, kan het gewoon niet slecht zijn. Dit was in december 1996 de 1e single van de 3 CD-set "Emancipation". Mooie liefdesverklaring van Prince (toen nog The Artist Formerly Known As Prince), ook al is het een cover. Jammer dat ie bleef steken op nr 42 van de Mega Top 50/100
**** It was nice to have Prince return to the chart with this song. While it is is not up there with his greatest songs, it is still a worthy addition to his catalogue. One of those Prince songs that are easy to get into from the very first listen.
***** Odd choice as the lead single from Prince's "Emancipation" album, but certainly a well-done, faithful (except for a brief spoken-word part) cover of the 1970s Stylistics ballad. Prince's music is usually more complex and innovative, but this is a totally different flavor... lush Philly soul that showcases the sort of rich, full vocals we usually get from singers who are highly skilled but more conventional. None of the usual Prince twists and turns. The beat doesn't start "on the and," there's isn't a guest spot from "Camille," obscure references to obscure theological references are nowhere to be found, same for not-so-obscure anatomical references, and if anybody in this house know about the quake, apparently they're keeping it to themselves. It's pretty as hell, though. A thoroughly pleasant, reminder that the only popular musician of the rock era to ever be among the world's best songwriters, live performers, guitarists and drum programmers, also happened to be among the world's best singers.
