Neil Tennant reviews Prince in 1982

Neil Tennant, Smash Hits, December 09, 1982 - p.26:

Dance, sex, romance: these are Prince's themes. He makes an effort to be sultry, sexy and streetwise amid a barrage of synthesizers, electronic burps and crashes but comes across as more of a Black American Gary Glitter (and that's a compliment in my book). The best song here, however, is the title track when war is his theme and the cries of "Paaartee !" take on an unsettling irony : "Life is just a party and parties weren't meant to last".
