One of the few Prince albums from that era I don't own. And it's not on Deezer. I suppose I could go and buy it.

I got a stack of Prince CDs upstairs that I've never listened to. Not sure if this is in the pile but will dig it out if so.

are we to understand then, Prince fans, that this is his best album?
No, Purple Rain is his best album, always will be. When someone says something "sounds like Prince" they normally mean the sound on this album though.

Dirty Mind and Parade are my fav prince albums for what it's worth but they're both kind of listened to in the context of building up to, and reacting against, Purple Rain.

"But, but... music is just what I hear, context doesn't exist."

Sorry 4 ur troubles white man.

hang on. If @hugh buys this, and I buy this, and one or 2 others buy this, has Kanye won?
Surely it means he's lost? Or digital distribution has lost? Or something?

When I said "buy" I mean't go into town and pick up one of those (preferably second-hand) shiny black things.

i have my suspicions that this is going to contain a lot of filler.

I listened to half of this, one of the records. I was nice to hear the long versions of the hits again. I never liked Delirious or THAT drum sound that is all over this album, you know the one. Prince has sounded better.
