Grande som de Prince, definição do funk nos anos 80's.

Here we are, we've reached Prince's funky saga "1999". The length of the record (and of the tracks) doesn't bother me that much as long as the songs maintain interest throughout their running time, which they all do. The title track is one of my favourite tracks of all time, a six minute masterpiece which should honestly be blasting from speakers when the end of the world is happening. The remaining tracks can't quite live up to the first one, nonetheless there are plenty of impressive compositions here and they all come together to form an interesting tapestry of love, longing, sex and death. His trademark sexual songs appear to have taken on a more uneasy tone however, as if he's entitled to sex from various women whilst sometimes being, you know, quite pervy.. however the ambition of this record cannot be denied. His best so far.

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 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)
