Look people, this is literally Sign ‘O’ The Times by Prince. Arguably this is the purple one at the very peak of his hit-making powers. This Warner Bros reissue doesn’t appear to be remastered, and doesn’t come with a brace of demos / live tracks / whatever. It just makes an über-classic album available on wax again. Double LP.

- Sign 'O' The Times by Prince
10/10 Jack 28th June 2017
Prince dominated the 80's, and this was his last great album of the decade before a string of up and down albums. There's a bit of everything on here - funk, pop, soul etc. To me this album and 1999 are the ones that really show that when Prince is on his game he can do anything he wants.
Sign "☮" the Times is the rarest of things: a commercially successful record that's also great art, a powerful social statement that never feels heavy-handed, an 80s record that holds up shockingly well, and a double album with no filler.
