500 Albums Challenge 8/500: Purple Rain- Prince and The Revolution
It’s album №8 on the list, and this is Purple Rain by Prince and The Revolution. Don’t know the artist, don’t know the band, don’t know anything about it. Let’s check it out.
- Let’s Go Crazy- Well, the music sound weird. Should this be classified as pop or rock music? I heard the bass but is still not sure of the genre. Honestly I don’t like it that much, the chorus is particularly unpleasing.
- Take Me With U- Still don’t like it that much. The way it sounds, just not that acceptable to me.
- The Beautiful Ones- Well, the same thing.
- Computer Blue- Pretty up-tempo, but, you know… The word “computer” gotta be pretty innovative back in 1984.
- Darling Nikki-
- When Doves Cry-
- I Would Die 4 U-
- Baby I’m A Star-
- Purple Rain- Wow. This song is different from the entire album. Probably the only song here that I love. No wonder it is considered a classic. The guitar starting from 4:00 is just incredible.
I’m not trying to get hate, but I don’t like the album. It is sort of disappointing. (again, just my opinion okay) The last track is definitely a masterpiece though.
