The Chocolate Invasion only being available on the NPG Music club website in 2004 is a pretty low key affair, but a return to funk and soul music. To be fair, it’s a pretty good collection of songs, “Sex Me? Sex Me Not” is an outstanding funk number as is “Whenever I lay my hands on you”, in fact that song is as good as any Prince song. The final mention is to the brilliant “The Dance” which is later re-recorded in 3121 in 2006.
The Chocolate Invasion is a surprisingly consistent collection of songs, and pretty enjoyable addition to Prince’s list of albums.
