Best-Sounding Prince Title Available!

Prince designed Purple Rain as the project that would make him a superstar, and that's exactly what happened. Simultaneously more focused and ambitious than any of his previous records, Purple Rain finds Prince consolidating his funk and R&B roots while moving boldly into pop, rock, and funk on nine superbly crafted songs.

Although Prince's songwriting is at a peak, the presence of the Revolution helps pull the music into even sharper focus, giving it a tougher, more aggressive edge. When Doves Cry is an eerie, spare neo-psychedelic masterpiece, Lets Go Crazy is a furious blend of metallic guitars, Stonesy riffs, and a hard funk backbeat. And the anthemic title track is a majestic ballad filled with a brilliant guitar outro. All in all, Purple Rain is a stunning statement of purpose that remains one of the most exciting rock & roll albums ever created.
