I was indeed, we discussed this c'mon, did you wind up going too?

Sorry, I was so excited about seeing Prince that any other prior knowledge went out of my head.

And yeah, I was there. Actually with the guy you quoted. Haha. Probably the best show I've ever, ever seen.

I've made a decision:

The solo and wordless vocal that end "Purple Rain" are the greatest moment in recorded music.

Problem?

Dirty Mind completes the trilogy of perfect. But really, I have 20 albums of his and there's a lot to love about all of them.

Really glad you're going to listen.

I listened to Purple Rain last night and I'm not sure how I feel about it. The songs are catchy, and I loved the storytelling in "Darling Nikki", but it just seemed a bit...cheesy.

I guess it's a bit too mushy for me (a couple songs). But, I'm giving it time to grow on me.

I mean, "Purple Rain" and "I Would Die 4 U" are maybe a bit sentimental, but they're balanced out by a fucked-up homelife in "When Doves Cry", a kinky sex story in "Darling Nikki" and pure, raging ego in "Baby, I'm a Star."

Yeah, I guess there is a balance and I was focusing on certain songs. Like I said, it'll grow on me.

If you find the love songs off-putting, Dirty Mind will prob be more your speed. Mostly party songs and raunchy sex.
