I Think This Was Better than Purple Rain in All Kinds of Possible Ways.

The only bad thing about this album is that there's absolutely no reason for it to be this long. It could have easily been at least 15 minutes shorter. Luckily, the music is so damn good that it more than makes up for it, but I think we could be talking about a serious contender for the "best Prince record" title had it been a little less self-indulgent. Despite that, it's still a fantastic album.

This is the one that launched Prince into super stardom. Yes, he had some hit singles prior. However, first with "Little Red Corvette" and then "1999" he hit it right out of the park and became a household name. Classic record!

As with Prince always, great songs but horrible mastring on CD. My favorite of him.

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.
