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.

Purple rain is grandiose and vibrant at the cost of consistency and flow.

One of my all-time favourites. Great album. Probably Prince's best - certainly his magnum opus and his most iconic recording. Production and songwriting holds up even to the present. Great blend of different genres like rock, pop, R&B, new wave, psychedelia, funk and dance.

This is a great album and I saw the movie, as well as various versions of the songs on my Ultimate Prince CD. Unfortunately, this is not one of the best albums of the artist, so I docked five points (Only Pink Floyd can get away with that without lost points.) Prince's ensuing albums, Around the World in a Day, Parade, and Sign of the times, are anti-commercial progressive rocking masterpieces, and those are the reason that Prince is my favorite eighties artist, and I bought the movie, which is still way better than most movies period actually.

As classic a 80s Album there is, so influential 33 years ago as it is today. The movie is average but this album is great
