EDITORS’ NOTES

Already infamous for his provocative lyrics, Prince continued to shock fans by bringing politics into the mix on 1981’s Controversy, unleashing some of pop’s funkiest protest jams. Powered by pulsating basslines and gleaming synth-pop riffs, tracks like “Controversy” and “Sexuality” are floor-filling anthems that cleverly question identity norms. Of course, no Prince album would be complete without a few lush ballads (“Do Me, Baby”) and raunchy rock jams (“Jack U Off”). Controversy is that perfect Prince combo of deep sensuality and social commentary.

Born To Controversy

This is a classic Prince album!!! The bass riff in Controversy never gets old!!
And Do Me, Baby was the jam back in the day!!!

Great Album

I do not know much about reviewing an album, but just have to say that Controversy reminds me of great times in the early 80's.
