Prince: Come (Warner Bros.)

Barney Hoskyns, MOJO, September 1994

OK, PREPARE YOURSELVES FOR A SHOCK. PRINCE'S new album – a last gasp from his 16-year career on Warner Brothers – is about sex. It starts with a song called 'Come', ends with a song rather less euphemistically titled 'Orgasm', and takes in a fair amount of ejaculated matter in between. So there we are. An album about sex. By Prince.

Total word count of piece: 824
