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.

We need your help

Running a website like The Digital Fix - especially one with over 20 years of content and an active community - costs lots of money and we need your help. As advertising income for independent sites continues to contract we are looking at other ways of supporting the site hosting and paying for content.

You can help us by using the links on The Digital Fix to buy your films, games and music and we ask that you try to avoid blocking our ads if you can. You can also help directly for just a few pennies per day via our Patreon - and you can even pay to have ads removed from the site entirely.
