I don't really care for some of the hypersexual content (repeating the "Do it all night" chorus ad nauseam for instance, or perhaps the incestuous "Sister"), nonetheless "Dirty Mind" is a solid improvement over "Prince" which was itself a solid improvement over his debut "For You". This record is the very definition of short and sweet; its innovative, funky, new-wave inflected production makes my ears happy ! That's all there is to it really. My favourite tracks here are the deliciously sounding "Uptown" and the devilish gem "Head".

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.

This explains so much. I always wondered where new jack really originated from.

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.
