Overview:
1999 is the fifth studio album by American recording artist Prince, released on October 27, 1982 by Warner Bros. Records. It was his first top ten album on the Billboard 200 chart in the United States (peaking at number 9) and became the fifth best-selling album of 1983. 1999 was Prince's breakthrough album, but his next album Purple Rain would become his most successful. The title track was a protest against nuclear proliferation and became his first top ten hit in countries outside the U.S.
It was also the first album to feature The Revolution. The band's moniker is written in reverse on the front cover.
According to the Rolling Stone Album Guide, "1999 may be Prince's most influential album: Its synth-and-drum machine-heavy arrangements codified the Minneapolis sound that loomed over mid-'80s R&B and pop, not to mention the next two decades' worth of electro, house, and techno." In 2003, the TV network VH1 placed 1999 49th in its list of the greatest albums of all time. The album was also part of Slant Magazine's list "The 50 Most Essential Pop Albums" and the magazine listed the album at #8 on its list of "Best Albums of the 1980s". The album was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 2008. In 2003, the album was ranked number 163 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.

This one is deadly. Would the general consensus be that its way better than the previous ones? I'm going to take this one on my holidays.
This one has slipped considerably in my estimation since 2011. way too long, Just a few good tunes really.
