From lstevens
Overall: 9.3

Best Tracks: "Let's Go Crazy", "When Doves Cry", "Purple Rain"

Simply put, the greatest artist of the 1980s at the arguable height of his pop powers. Sign O the Times might be more of a profound artistic statement, but in terms of pure pop artistry, only Thriller comes close to matching this.

An unforgettable soundtrack from one of the true great geniuses of our time. Of course, no Prince album would ever be complete without a few over the top moments, but that doesn't prevent this from being an all time great.

This album not being in this chart's top ten calls the whole system into question.

Oh wow. The songs on "Purple Rain" are uniformly excellent, ending with a masterwork of a track, sharing the same name as the album, which may well be his magnum opus according to most people. By taking the diverse, indulgent aura from his previous LP "1999" and tightening the tracks this time round, Prince makes every second count on this record. It's an excellent outing - full of funky, groovy and heart-rending pop - and deserves to be on everyone's Top 100 albums list !

Finally got round to listening to this. No doubt about the musicality. The whole feel is massively of its time. The record trots along at a lovely poppy-rocky pace and then hits the title track, which is a masterpiece. Great record.

Although This is The Most Classic Prince Album,I Don't Think It Was His Best,Still Fantastic Though.
