5/5: The day after the disappointing opening show Prince had to make things right and he delivered: opening with Joy In Repetition followed by The Love We Make. A marvellous experience!

3/5: This concert was the first of three NSJ shows and was marred by real awful, even ugly, sound and an uninspired setlist.

4/5: Extremely good concert. Before the ‘regular’ set Prince played quite a lot of songs with all the house lights still on. A party concert.

5/5: The regular setlist was thrown out the window and the first song played was an extremely funky Controversy. One of the most special Prince evenings of my life!

4/5: Nice show, that took some time to get into full swing. The last encore in particular was great.

5/5: Aftershow by Prince that ended strangely, but contained a number of gems, like the opening jam and an exquisite extremely funky I Know You Got Soul.

5/5: This show clearly showed Prince felt ‘something’ towards his Belgian audience. He was up for it and it showed.

3½/5: Good show in an environment where concerts shouldn’t be organized.

4½/5: Good inspired show by Prince in a very atmospheric Zürich.

Emancipation? No, thank u!

1996: Emancipation has just been released. I post this review in newsgroup alt.music.prince. Nice to re-read this after all those years!

5/5: Aftershow. The only time I bought tickets on the black markets (5 times the original ticket price). Top night, during which Prince’s spirits were genuinely lifted by the audience.

5/5: Aftershow. Never before did I stand so close to the stage at Paradiso. Funky, funky, funky, this show was funky.
