|Pandemonium is the fourth full-length studio album by The Time, and was released in conjunction with the band's appearance in the movie Graffiti Bridge.
The album was developed largely from an album started by just Prince and Morris Day (although using the name The Time), called Corporate World - see Corporate World for details.
The album contains 10 songs and 5 segues. Unlike the three previous albums, Pandemonium contained significant input from band members, and only five songs of the album were written, produced and largely performed by Prince (previous albums were almost entirely handled by Prince). He is also credited at the ASCAP as the author of four of the segues. On the album, all songs and segues were credited to The Time only.
Prince was also added as a writer on the copyright information for Pandemonium indicating that he was involved in this track to a lesser degree also.
The album produced two commercially-available singles, Jerk Out and Chocolate, and The Time promoted the album heavily on TV and on tour. Pandemonium was also planned as a single, but was canceled and replaced by Chocolate.
Frictions in the band while performing together caused Jesse Johnson to be voted out of the band, however, and Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis left to work on their production work, so promotion for the album ended in early 1991. Still, the album sold more than The Time's previous albums.
The album reached number 18 on the US Billboard Pop Chart, and number 9 on the Billboard R&B Chart.
