When Doves Cry, Purple Rain and Let's go crazy are great tracks, the rest not so much. I never understood the adoration Prince attracts, maybe seeing him on stage would have helped but the recordings are nothing special to me.

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.

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.
