This could have been his best album if he had slimmed down some of the tracks and mixed things up a bit instead of talking through the best parts of some songs; but it isn't a deal breaker by any means. It's meant to be party album to some degree that you can jam to in the background. Probably Prince's most electronic album, if you dig that stuff, and very influential in the house music scene. Honestly, this, The Black album, and Dirty Mind are all you need for some awesome party music to last you through the ages.

This is the Prince album I put on when I start feeling lazy because I know it turns me into a straight dancing maniac.

Only 2 or 3 tracks here aren't all that noteworthy, everything else is funky and dirty (in a good way)

A great sprawling epic experiment. Obviously the first two tracks are the most well known but the rest of the album is just as good. The only problem with this and other Prince albums on CD, is that they badly need a re-mastering. They sound really thin and, little red corvette, sounds awful here. Still, great album, which could be even greater with a decent sound.

Perhaps the Prince album I enjoy the most - admittedly it's a bit self-indulgent with most of the tracks being a couple of minutes longer than they should be, but when I'm driving it's not so noticeable and is a damn good listen. 1999, Delirious, Lets Pretend We're Married, DMSR and Automatic are top for me. The 2nd half does tale off a little but it's all relative.

Fun pop album that sometimes drag a little too long. Some tracks like All the Critics and DSMR I would enjoy more if they were a bit shorter. But still, I've enjoyed this album.

Prince's first double album and one of his best. The first two songs are career defining hits. Delirious is a lesser classic. DMSR is as funky as it gets. Free is a very good ballad. Lady Cab Driver is an underrated gem. All The Critics Lover You In New York has good techno beats.

This could be my favorite Prince album if the songs weren't so goshdamned over-long. It's exhausting and I'm sorry, Prince. Maybe I'll just try dancing next time.

Album hit big I remember it like it was yesterday. How time flies. Not as good as Dirty Mind, Sign O times or Purple Rain but still solid. It does fade a bit the 2nd half... MEZ

Not my favorite one, but it showed what will happened next. There are really special moments like "Free", "Lady Cab Driver", Let's Pretend We're Married" and "D.M.S.R.". And there are the two brilliant standards "1999" and "Little Red Corvette".
