The Time - Ice Cream Castle (1984)
The rock song “My Drawers” is an admirable album cut with yet another Jesse Johnson guitar solo that glides over the burbling groove and corny Day lyrics that always sound better with juiced up instrumentation around it. Sadly, the other two songs are typical excuses for Morris Day’s ego to run a muck without the energy of hyped up performances to help. “Chili Sauce” is a painful dialogue of Day rapping to a woman who was at the wrong restaurant at the wrong time. “If the Kid Can’t Make You Come” features some tasty bass and guitar licks as well as exquisite piano but it nonetheless fails to excite. The lyrics are just too over the top for the song to be taken seriously. So, I’ll just leave you with “The Bird”.
