Sign O' The Times

Advantages: An original sounding double disc
Disadvantages: Some of the songs are a little dated

I have to admit that I’m filled with trepidation at the prospect of writing this review. As any of you who have cast your critical eyes over my previous Prince album ops will know (and if you haven’t looked, please don’t), they were, well, crap. In my def ...

The opus!

Advantages: Uplifting; thoughful; style-spanning and funky; lyrics printed in full

I am... impressed!

Advantages: Excellent album with really strong songs
Disadvantages: A couple of weaker tracks
