Undaunted by the criticism Around the World in a Day received, Prince continued to pursue his psychedelic inclinations on Paradewhich also functioned as the soundtrack to his second film, Under the Cherry Moon. Originally conceived as a double album, Parade has the sprawling Every Night (I Pray) - The Chantels - Every Night (I Pray) / Whoever You Are of a double record, even if it clocks in around 45 minutes.
Even with all of its attributes, Parade is a little off-balance, stopping too quickly to give the haunting closer, "Sometimes It Snows in April," the resonance it needs. For some tastes, it may also be a bit too lyrically cryptic, but Prince 's weird religious and sexual metaphors develop into a motif that actually gives the album weight. If it had been expanded to a double album, Parade would have equaled the subsequent Sign 'o' the Timesbut as it stands, it's an astonishingly rewarding near-miss.
