Various - Controversy

With Prince back in the headlines recently, Controversy makes for a timely collection of covers of his songs. It's a very mixed bag, however, flitting from the excellent (The Dynamics' reggae take on Girls & Boys) to the sleep-inducingly boring (Susanna & The Magical Orchestra's Condition of the Heart). 7 Hurtz with Peaches' contribution is funky and - no surprises! - potty-mouthed, while Kode 9 & Space Ape's Sine Of The Dub is akin to a menacing Rasta-poem. It's this variation in styles and sometimes complete deviation from the originals that makes Controversy worth a look for Prince fans.
