Seriously, why are people drooling all over Purple Rain, 1999 and Sign ‘O the Times when this absolute gem exists. I genuinely thought Prince was overrated before I listened this album.

The electro funk that made MJ (more) popular too. Definitely his most important album together with 1999, and in my opinion also the most enjoyable.

Prince took a big leap stylistically here. His use of new wave sounds for Dirty Mind & When You Were Mine are quite unexpected and he never really sounded like that again. Later on there is more conventional funk rock namely Uptown and Head. This is really good stuff on the road to greater triumphs.

Love the rawness, and how it pays no mind to genre with tracks like the (rockabilly? doo-wop? new wave?) 'When You Were Mine'. Prince, either attempting to seduce or still finding his voice, sings in a whispery falsetto throughout, and it works. Originality oozes from this thing.

A key record into the development of Prince's music. He starts to take on his crazy dressing style as seen on the cover and as well talking about some wild subjects backed up with a combination of funk and rock instrumentation.

A extremely funky album. It may not have any standout tracks like later albums would but it's still a good album. It's quite short but it actually feels about right. Short and slick.

His 3rd album and one of his best. Dirty Mind is funky sexy and dirty. When you Were Mine is the best track and Uptown, Head & Dirty Mind are also classics in the Prince repertoire. His next album Controversy was a step backwards compared to this.

A dirty piece of music. Fast, hot and still cool. Prince has his first innovative masterpiece and turns away from the mainstream. It was the new development of Funk Music.

From Purpletane76 11/04/2015 09:55
This is a classic album of Prince's and his first truly innovative one. A punk funk extravaganza with blazing guitars, amazing keyboards, frenzied vocals and sexually obsessed lyrics. 500 steps ahead of everyone else and it started Prince's croosover.
