iTunes Review

Having vaulted from prodigious electro-funk bad boy to genre-bending pop sensation with his 1982 breakthrough, 1999, Prince channeled all of his skill as a singer, musician, and producer on the blockbuster soundtrack for 1984’s Purple Rain. He roars through frenzied rocker “Let’s Go Crazy,” takes us on a synth-driven psychedelic journey with “Computer Blue,” strips funk to a menacing throb on the moody anthem “When Doves Cry,” and brings the house down with the soulful title ballad. Purple Rain is effortlessly catchy, thrillingly dynamic, wildly adventurous, and irrepressibly weird.

Legendary Prince

If I could give "Purple Rain" 10 stars I would. Every track is great. There are many hits on this album. Enjoy!

My mother bought me this album when I was a kid, and I still listen to it to this day. I remember playing air guitar to Let's Go Crazy.

The first recording properly credited to Prince & the Revolution was "17 Days," the B-side of the March 1984-released Purple Rain...
