Music Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Rolling Stone (Oct./93, p.114) - 4.5 Stars - Excellent Plus - "...[THE HITS/B-SIDES] is a dizzying sprawl...his label just might get it's money's worth--even if [Prince] keeps his word and never makes a studio album..."

Spin (12/93, p.126) - "...with absolutely no bad songs [on THE HITS], it's hard to fuss...those who've found their interest in Prince flagging [will] feel as if God's granted them an extra classic Prince album..."

Spin (p.140) - "[A]s dance rock goes, no one's riffage grooved harder back in the day."

Entertainment Weekly (9/17/93, p.86) - "...unlike so many boxed sets, these anthologies aren't weighed down with significance--they're simply a blast to hear and even revelatory..." - Rating: A-

Q (11/93, p.148) - 5 Stars - Indispensible - "...it's not just the high and mighty width of [THE HITS] that startles: the sustained quality here is remarkable..."

Melody Maker (9/18/93, p.41) - "...The Best Of Prince is, by demonstrable logic, The Greatest Record Ever Made...there just ain't enough..."

Village Voice (3/1/94, p.5) - Ranked #8 in the Village Voice's list of the 10 Best Reissues Of 1993.

NME (Magazine) (9/18/93, p.34) - (7) - Very Good - "...HITS go right to the core of the matter...the sophisticated programming of HITS puts a whole new spin on the Prince thing..."
