180g Vinyl Reissue!
Mastered by Chris Bellman at Bernie Grundman Mastering!
Prince's fourth album, Controversy, contains falsetto whoops, upbeat
synthesizers, and funky bass lines, expanding on his previous album, Dirty Mind.
The 1981 release peaked at number 21 on the U.S. Billboard 200.
Few artists have created a body of work as rich and varied as Prince. During the
'80s, he emerged as one of the most singular talents of the rock & roll era,
capable of seamlessly tying together pop, funk, folk, and rock. Not only did he
release a series of groundbreaking albums; he toured frequently, produced albums
and wrote songs for many other artists, and recorded hundreds of songs that
still lie unreleased in his vaults. With each album he released, Prince showed
remarkable stylistic growth and musical diversity, constantly experimenting with
different sounds, textures, and genres. Occasionally, his music can be
maddeningly inconsistent because of this eclecticism, but his experiments
frequently succeed; no other contemporary artist can blend so many diverse
styles into a cohesive whole.
