...and I will herald this as one of my favourite albums ever. Certainly it's in my top 2 fave Prince albums.
Let's deal with the cover first shall we? What can I say, it's cheesy and somewhat dated, and the underwear is horrible, but yet despite these factors, it makes me frisky!
Then we get to the first track Dirty Mind, who can resist this naughty gem of perfection. This is the sort of track that I think should be played at weddings instead of that Celine and Mariah type rubbish.
When You Were Mine is a gorgeous little heartbreaker. Do It All Night brings us back to his favourite subject, whilst Gotta Broken Heart Again is another lovely, sad ballad, one of my favourite Prince ballads in fact.
Then we get to the last four tracks, which are all perfect!
Uptown, wow, this never fails to get me dancing, and the lyrics are fantastic.
Head, the best track on the album and a real contender for a top ten slot of all his songs. So sexy lyrically, but the music is equally good. Very funky. A real masterpiece.
Sister is pure filth, a little bit odd, the lyrics being very shocking in parts.
Then, finally, Partyup, another cracking dancey number. Again never fails to get my feet tapping and hips gyrating.
Take his advice people, give some money and buy yourself a Dirty Mind. I'm going back to gazing at the inside cover picture....
