InfoDouble LPJune 2011

Originally released in 1982, Prince's fifth album came right before the lascivious multi-instrumentalist became a huge star with his 1984 film and soundtrack, Purple Rain. But Prince had already proved himself to be the most audacious talent to emerge in the 1980s, and "1999", the bulk of which features Prince on all the instruments, reflects the dance-rock styles that he also brought to the acts he produced, particularly the Time. According to the Rolling Stone Album Guide, '1999 may be Prince's most influential album: Its synth-and-drum machine-heavy arrangements codified the Minneapolis sound that loomed over mid-80s R&B and pop, not to mention the next two decades' worth of electro, house, and techno.'
