7/10 Alan 20th July 2017
The album deserves an 11 obviously but the mastering is horrible. Josh and Prince screwed this up.
Disc 2 has better mastering and the song choices are great bar a couple of dull ones. This really should have been on vinyl.
Disc 3 is great but crap. Extended versions followed by their radio edits!? Why would anybody be interested in that? Let's just have the extended or 12" versions.
Probably won't ever watch the dvd.
Packaging is reflective of the price. Would rather have paid more for more.
But at the end of the day it's Purple Rain. Classic Prince. Classic album.
