Surprisingly Good Album from Prince's ex-bandmates

"It's almost a travesty to refer to Wendy and Lisa as Prince's bandmates. The older I get, and the more Prince continues to put out nominal work, the more I realize and appreciate the musical talents of Wendy and Lisa. They are highly gifted musicians/arrangers, and though we may never know how much they wrote or didn't write (thanks to Prince's legal contracts) for the Revolution we can still get a taste of it here. Giving a nod to the Beethoven symphony of the same name, Eroica demonstrates all the things that made prince music so cool for me up until 1988. So do yourself a favor and buy this album today. I guarantee that you will be quite pleasantly surprised by what you hear. I'm constantly playing this album for people and they are shocked that it didn't make mainstream radio."
